love coming here for their deep tissue and hot stone massages, but they are a bit overpriced. one thing that i don't like here is their ghetto massage rooms in the outdoor area. they aren't exactly relaxing.

We're sorry that our massage rooms weren't relaxing to you, Jen. We want every part of your experience to be pleasant and soothing. Maybe some time in one of our hot tub rooms would suit you better. Warmly, Sue

Expensive, but I've really enjoyed the baths here. As close as you can get in Palo Alto to something like Baden Baden (although Watercourse Way is a private experience).
Response from the owner - a year ago
I'm very happy you enjoy the baths so much, Thad, and I hope we can give you another relaxing escape very soon. Thank you for sharing this review! - Warmly, Sue

I've used their deep-tissue massage, with a few different therapists, and I was impressed with their skill. Highly recommended.

Going to Watercourse Way is a special treat for me (us really, me and the hubs). A once or twice a year special occasion. We get a tub room, and then separate massages afterwards. Afterwards we usually try to grab dinner at Evvia, which makes for a pretty amazing day. In the past we've done an hour tub, followed by hour long massages. The most recent visit we did an hour tub and hour and a half massages. AMAZEBALLS. My hubs has Swedish massage, I get deep tissue. Every massage therapist has been really good for each of us (we've been several times), no one stands out above the rest. Although, Francisco was my deep tissue massage therapist this last time, and he did a wonderful job (I would highly recommend him). Tub rooms THREE TRILLIUM: tub, shower, and resting area with skylight (my least favorite of the three rooms we've been in, which is not to say that it isn't awesome, the other two are just more awesome) EIGHT STARS: Moroccan vibe, spa, sauna, cold plunge, shower, skylight, resting area. MY FAVORITE ROOM. NINE BATS: Spa, steam, cold plunge, glass mural, shower, resting area. This is a really beautiful room with no natural light. If you are going out to dinner afterwards, they have hair dryers in the bathroom. So no need to lug yours with you. Want a discount? Pickup Spa Finder or Spa Wish gift cards at Costco. They are currently $79.99 for (2) $50 gift cards. That's a 20% discount!!!! Of course, always call prior to purchasing the GCs to make sure that Watercourse Way accepts the GCs still.

I was here once, in the mid 1980's. I used the tub room to relax in for an hour. I thought I would be back for a massage, but have not made a visit back. And its 30 years later!!! I will come back this year I hope.
Response from the owner - 7 months ago
We'd love to see you back after all these long years, Thomas! Give us a call -- we'd love to set up an appointment with you. (650) 462-2000 -Warmly, Sue

Watercourse Way gets high marks for date night. The environment is restful and zenlike - without being too frou-frou. My husband and I have been here a number of times, and we always go with the couples massage. It's a wonderfully-appointed room with a double steam shower (so much steam that you almost cannot see one another), two massage tables, relaxing music, and an overall wonderful experience for us. My husband normally falls asleep during the massage, which means he is in heaven. I usually go with the deep tissue (so sleeping is not the result), and I have never been disappointed. We will continue to go back to Watercourse Way!
