my all-time favorite massage – I have had many massages all over the country, but now that I have 'discovered" Johnny Ray, he is the only person I will go to when home in LA. I've been there about a dozen times now and go as often as I can. I like a very strong massage, which is delivers (but will work with anyone's individual preferences of course) and definitely listens to specific requests, etc about areas of concern. I also love that he will massage abs, glutes, obliques, pecs--he's very professional and intuitive.
perfect massage experience – I recently got an amazing massage from Olivia. She was friendly, professional, wonderful to communicate with, and extremely talented! When i left she even recommended some stretches to help with trouble areas in my back. I would absolutely recommend Carino to anyone and can't wait to go back.
Fantastic place to get relaxed. – My absolute favorite part to get a massage. I also started with a couple Groupons and have continued to come back. They really work with what you want out of a massage, keep you breathing through and the environment is so tranquil. The whole experience is fantastic. I always look forward to appointments at Carino!
EXCELLENT massage, reasonable prices – Johnny Ray rocks! My sister gave me a Groupon to visit Carino, said it came highly recommended to her and I now know why. Small, quaint space, very relaxing, and Johnny Ray has the best technique of any therapist I've ever visited. He's also a fellow actor and understands the concept of dialogue in a massage between giver and receiver. GREAT pressure, got in to my hip flexors and relieved a whole lot of tension and pain. I felt like I had a new body. You owe it to yourself to get a massage at Carino. I know Grace is also great, and the rates are reasonable, but they're getting really popular so book soon.
worth the travel – I have to drive well over an hour for a Carino massage but it is absolutely worth it !
Best Masseuse In Town :) – I remember exactly two years ago my old roomie gave me a certificate that she had gotten for a massage. She felt that I needed it more than her. Well me being the massage SNOB that I am,I told her I am not going to just go to anyone. I was use to my girl at the Four Seasons and Montage Hotel. THANK GOD that both of them were booked that day. I had the most amazing experience with Johnny. I told him that he has tricks up his sleeve and his hands are all magic. I would not trade him for any masseuse in the world :))) Hands down the best masseuse in LA, NYC, Miami, London, Spain, Paris, Italy, and Bali.. Trust me I have gotten massages all over the world :)
When I entered I was sceptical as the place is small. However, Johnny Ray told me I would have the best massage of my life and he was right. I don't remember the last time I was so relaxed. When I walked out of there I had the biggest smile and plans to visit again. I'll never go anywhere else (as long as I can get in of course, they're booked pretty far in advance)
THE best massage in LA – I've had massages by Johnny Ray several times over the past ten years and he is always-without fail-the best massage. I live in Venice and over the past year i've often opted for a massage at The Massage Place or Lamai Thai Massage because of it's convenience for me. but after going to Johnny Ray yesterday-i am reminded tenfold of how amazing he is and how it is SO worth it! (and the drive is really not that bad at all:) it's a matter of getting a good/adequate massage at one of the massage places where it's hit or miss with the therapist you get and really feeling like you could use another massage a few days later or going to Johnny Ray at Carino Massage and being truly released and relaxed and rejuvenated. He is truly a healer.
The Best in LA! – It’s truly an amazing massage from Johnny Ray! I have been frequenting his place for sometime now and always leave feeling fantastic. Whether you’re in the mood for a deep tissue or more relaxing massage Johnny is more than capable. I have gone to many massage therapists over the years and he is the BEST!
Simply the best massage around! – The lucky people (including myself) who get to see Johnny for his Carino Massage know how much he truly, GENUINELY cares about making his clients feel great -- it's not just physical well-being, but emotional & mental well-being as well.
The space on Melrose is intimate & cozy. You can't help but feel nourished there. And Johnny's one-of-a-kind Carino massage provides me relief like no other massage before (and I've been getting massages for almost 20 years now!)
It's a DEEP & comprehensive massage which covers all the bases. But if you have specific target spots, he'll focus on them for you, too.
My only "complaint" is that I can't (yet) see him EVERY week instead of just once a month. But that once a month massage is something I really look forward to!
Thank you Johnny!
