The new thing to do is stepping into a non formal massage place for a quick relief. These shops are popping up everywhere in Los Angeles and they know what they're doing. Foot massage spas are convenient, cheap and relaxing. If you need a quick pick me up, these are the places to go.
The amazing 1-hour massage for $15 is simply an amazing value. Even with a $10 tip, it's a great deal (Cash Only).
The expertise of the massage therapists vary, but generally they all follow the same routines as they perform the massage; it seems standardized for this establishment. Don't expect to receive any Swedish massage; all the massages here align with traditional Chinese massage that emphasizes deep tissue techniques so be prepared for the "good" kind of soreness afterwards.
This place is the perfect mini girl's getaway. The staff is friendly, the facility is clean and the massages are awesome with reasonable prices.
Amazing $50 for 90 minute body massage
If I want a full fledged fancy fancy spa massage this isn't the place to go. If I want a super effective, nice, comfortable, yet public massage on the cheap... this is 100% the place to go.
I love a good massage, especially when it's $20 for full body. It's not a spa but it's the most amazing massage you can get for without taking off your clothes!
