Do not go here under any circumstances. One of the "masseuses" at this place spent the session fondling my genitals. He touched my penis and testicles repeatedly and then placed my hand on his penis. This is tantamount to sexual assault. I am a heartbeat away from filing criminal charges against this place. Repeat: Do not go here. Don't be lured in by the groupon deals or the Larchmont Ave. address. This is not a business you want to frequent unless you want to be sexually assaulted. This is not a joke. I would never make these accusations unless they were 100% true and I am sorry to say they are.
Very Nice Mini Spa – I got a deal from Living Social for this Spa & it was very nice. The manager was very accomodating, sweet & professional. I was able to buy 3 more massages at a discount after the first massage & when I went back for the 2nd of the 3 massages, I discovered I has lost the certificates. I recieved an email from the owner a few days later saying she had everything documented & that they would honor my pre-paid sessions without the physical certificates! Wow, I wasn't expecting that! They DID have wonderful music playing during the massages & the rooms were not muggy at all. I guess they must have seen the review from a few months ago & did some improvements because my experience was awesome. The parking is a bit of a pain though, but ALL of Larchmont is a pain to park in!
WORST & MOST UNPROFESSIONAL OWNER!!! – Looked shady, spa was hidden upstairs, must pay for parking if you have anyluck finding a space on the streets. The massage room was muggy and sheets weren't clean. No music, no candles, no relaxing aromas floating around, ask for your own water, and nothing special at all. My masseuse was good even though they dont speak english. But owner treated the workers kinda rude.
A spa experience is suppose to be enjoyable but this is by far the worst....no stars
Great Day Spa on a Budget – I have been going to this mini day spa on Larchmont Blvd. in Los Angeles for 5 years now. they have recently moved a few doors North and are in an upstairs unit now. Lu, who does the facials, is always calm and pleasant. She has remembered me each and every time I have come and has given prompt and courteous service. I have had facials at Aveda, Burke Williams, Ritz Carlton, FACES and hers is on par, if not better.
Maria is one of the massage therapists, and she was pleasant, on-time and courteous. She asked me how I like my massage and did a great job.
I was quite pleased with both of my services, and will continue to go there.
In these tough times when we want to still be nice to ourselves while watching every penny, Radiance of Life Mini Day Spa is a fabulous place to treat yourself and still have money left over for rent.
Best Kept Secret in LA – First off, let me tell you that I?ve been in 2 car accidents have lots of scar tissue and have been in chronic pain and soreness for some time. I?ve been to a myriad of massage therapists, including acupuncturists, chiropractors and rolfers.
I was referred to ?Radiance of Life? and have been back three times since. I think ?Radiance of Life? is the best-kept secret of LA. Lu gives the best deep tissue massage I have EVER had and I have experienced many! Lu is a wonder and a joy and her place is adorable, relaxing and inviting. She has surpassed everyone?s attempts at trying to get my muscles to relax and get my shoulders to go down. She knows exactly where and how to touch and the pressure she is capable of exerting is SUPER-HUMAN. Employing a variety of techniques according to what you need during the course of the hour, she does not stop until all of the kinks are worked out. As a result, the effects of her massage last for almost 2 weeks. Almost unheard of for someone in my condition!! I sleep better, I am more relaxed and at ease and I feel like exercising again. When she is finished with me, I forget I have a neck it is so relaxed. With each visit the success has been palpable, the chiropractor has also noticed and I can put my shoulders down again! As a diehard devotee of her massages, I will undoubtedly continue to drive all the way from the Valley to Larchmont. It is well worth it!
Very worth the money – I must say I was very pleased today when I experienced this place. I have been reading online reviews of several places and when I cam e across this tiny larchmont spa with all good reviews I thought that there must be a catch. I made a phone call and they were extremely nice, gave me a first time discount and were very honest about all of there different options. Aside from not being the quietest spa i have been too I had to understand that for 44 dollars in wont be perfect. It was one of the better massage I have had in a long time. The ladies were very nice, a little flirty but definitely worth the 44 dollars I spent... I will definitely go back.
Great place for massage. – This little mini day spa is a wonderful place for massage. I had terrible back pain for about 2 months and nothing could help. I turned to massage therapy. I went to Radiance Of Life for help and after 1 1/2 hour massage, I felt like a different person. After a few more sessions my pain was gone!!!!! That was the most amazing thing for me after 2 months of pain.
The owner, Luriya, is always wonderful with her warm welcome, accomodating, and friendliness. The price is very affordable. Radiance Of Life locates in Larchmont Village which has variety of stores, coffee shops, and resturants. I highly recommend this place for anyone who has back pain. Try once and you'll be back for more.
I LOVE this place! – I have gone to this spa three times now and am recommending it to everyone I know. The owner is so nice and cordial and really cares about each customer's experience. The price is amazing and the massage is better than one I have paid three times as much for.
The mini day spa having the greatest quality. – As an athlete, I get my share of injuries. The bulk of it is due from free weights where I get stiffness of the joints and muscle strains. Stretching has been helping a lot however sometimes it doesn't work all the time. A friend of mine who's also a fellow athlete suggested a cool little day spa that wasn't too far from my area. He told me that when he went there they had a wide range of massages. The owner was extremely nice and suggested which one to get for his injury at the time.
When I had gone there for the first time everything my friend said was true and then some. The day spa is in a place called Larchmont Village where they have a variety of different stores, good coffee shops, and fine restaurants. I entered Radiance of Life and was warmly greeted by luriya the spa's owner. We chit-chatted about how she came to own the place, the overall area, and what shops and restaurants are great to visit in Larchmont Village. She showed me a list of what the place offered and everything looked great. Though I'm not into facials, manicures, pedicures, etc; a customer told me about them just as she was finished getting a pedicure. She explained to me how great this place was and how professional the work was. The customer explains that if I have any sisters or girlfriends, to send them here in case they are in the mood for a beauty hookup.
I was concentrated on the massages. The Thai massage was suggested because it helps with flexibility of the joints. At that time, my lower back went out on me so I found it convenient. After the massage, the pain was gone. I was not walking like the Hunchback of Notre dame any more. On top of the professional work are the reasonable prices. In my opinion you can't get qreat quality like that at such prices. I feel like I lucked out on this. Larchmont Village is indeed a great place. After a great massage I sit down to a nice meal at the restaurants and a great cup of coffee at the coffeeshops.
BEST MASSAGE EVER! – I have been to many spas looking for the perfect massage, especially deep tissue, from Burke Williams to Aqua, to hotel spas...This little gem is the best massage in town! Luriya, the owner, makes you feel welcome and the strength in her hands gets out even the toughest of knots. She is a miracle worker with her hands. The price is amazing as well! I highly recommned this to anyone that suffers from back pain, stress, or just needs an AMAZING massage. Step into Radiance of Life and I promise you will leave feeling relaxed and renewed!
