Rachel is not only a gifted esthetician she also does an amazing full body massage . The environment at Riverwood is peaceful calm and soothing. I fall asleep during my services everytime! Love love love this spa and Rachel.

Rachel is so warm and welcoming. The environment is relaxing and tranquil. Rachel asked questions and actually listened to my answers. I really felt like the massage was tailored just for me. I could feel the stress and tension dissipate. I would highly recommend her to anyone and I will definitely be back :)

My facial with Leslie was amazing! It was very relaxing and my skin felt great the next day. Can’t wait to go back and get my next one!

I recently had the pleasure of getting a 90 minute massage from Leslie. Leslie is very engaging and welcoming from the start. She determined what my needs were and what areas needed a little extra attention. It was one of the best massages I have ever had. I really like the cozy, comfortable feel of Riverwood Spa. You do not feel like you are in the middle of Raleigh. Very convenient! I will be back often!

Today was my first time going, I went In For a 60 min deep tissue massage. I haven’t had a massage in over 4 years, and based on her reviews alone I had to try it. I am a hair dresser so, I carry all of my stress and tension in my shoulders and neck and I also suffer from migraines. I highly recommend Rachel she is amazing she relived all my tension, my body felt so relax and she also put me to sleep lol. I can’t wait for my session!

I had my first massage (90 minutes) with Rachel a few evenings ago and had let her know in advance that my shoulder and arm were inflamed/in a lot of pain (to the point of tears) from a sprain weeks earlier and my neck/shoulders were extremely tight with knots. She did such an AMAZING job and worked SO hard to knead out all the knots. I felt SO much better after!

I am new to the area and had been so busy moving (and pulling all my muscles unpacking) I had not had a massage in at least a year. I have been going for massages on and off for about 30 years and out of all of the massages I have had (A LOT!) she was absolutely one of the best ever. Seriously. Even though she is tiny and it was after work at the end of the day she still poured all of her energy and STRENGTH into it. I was SO IMPRESSED. Her office is convenient to downtown Raleigh and CLEAN and QUIET and in a safe area with parking. I *highly highly * recommend her and I will be back!

Great massage with Leslie. She’s very knowledgeable and intuitive. I’ve been getting massage for 30+ yrs and her work ranks way up with the best...

-Jeff Earnhardt


I have troublesome skin (acne, dry) and have seen many facialists. Once I saw Rachel, I never wanted to see anyone else! She takes such a thoughtful approach-- She takes time to really look at and feel my skin at every single appointment to think about what it needs and what would be best. I cannot recommend her enough!

-Jill Katz


Leslie Leonard gave me the best facial I have ever had and I am a tough customer! I have been receiving facials regularly for past 20 years and Leslie's bedside manner was exceptional, a true professional clearly understanding what I needed to relax and ensured I would leave the spa with gorgeous clean skin. I will be back not only to be pampered but to keep me looking so youthful after Leslie's outstanding service!

-Jenny Camp


I don't even know where to begin. I have known Rachel for about two years and I have loved her ever since. From her vibrant red tresses to her atomic blonde makeover, Rachel never ceases to WOW me. Her technique is the most relaxing that I have ever experienced. It's the one time of the month, that I can completely unplug and unwind. I highly recommend her and her spa!

-Katrina Fordham


Rachel is one of my very close friends, she's practically family to me! She has always been very reliable and welcoming when I go in for my appointments, she's always very happy and chipper and its very comforting to know that I can be honest and open with my "skin care therapist" about my skin related insecurities. She makes sure that she has a full history of the products and previous treatments her clients have had because everyone's skin is different. I love how attentive she is to my skin and always makes sure her client's needs are met! Without a doubt, the best experience I've ever had when it comes to my skin! She's always telling me about the new techniques she's learning about so she can offer her clients more to choose from. If I could give her 100 stars I would! Definitely the best of the best when it comes to the individual clients skin care needs! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!! 

-Rachel Wordsworth


I saw Rachel a few months back for a facial. I loved it so much that I'm sending a friend here for her birthday! She was knowledgeable, professional, and created a very relaxing (and CLEAN!) environment. Can't wait to come back for a massage!

-Maura Reilly


I truly enjoyed the massage. My kids gave me the massage as a Father's Day gift and Rachel did a fantastic job. I will be going back very soon, and I highly recommend.

-William Irving

I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and I trust Rachel completely. My skin loves it when I go visit her. She is knowledgeable and informative but never pushy. And I can't leave out how super sweet she is! She's the best!

-April Creech


Rachel is extremely attentive and professional. She makes sure you feel completely comfortable and informed throughout the whole treatment. On top of being an excellent esthetician, she is a wonderful person. She always made me feel welcome and relaxed! I would definitely recommend any and all of her services!

-Rachel Stuckey


I've had a few total body massages, after I got a Facial by Rachel... I will never get a full body massage again. The facial was so relaxing and cleansing. It even includes upper body massage and feet (Just what I need)! I'm looking forward to my facial next month! 

-Jessie Morgan


True professional. Very knowledgeable. Extremely relaxing facial... I almost fell asleep on several times... Both myself and my wife were very happy and skin looked great afterwards! will be back!

My sister is awesome when it comes to facials. She has soft hands and I think that really adds to the over all wonderful facial experience. She is well experienced and knows what she's doing. Highly recommend her!
