This modern, earthy space definitely has the aesthetics of relaxation down: It's minimally decorated with earth tones, potted plants and sleek wooden furniture, and offers a stripped-down treatment menu. It's nice to have a spa that doesn't overwhelm you with choices: aside from their signature massage, you can get one specifically for athletes, expecting mothers and one for general healing. The massages themselves are more rigorous than relaxing: you're jostled and stretched and rubbed, and it all feels good and will do wonders for your muscles, but you're not likely to leave feeling like you've just had a nap. That being said, you just can't beat these prices, which work out to about a dollar a minute.
Looking to de-stress after sitting in L.A. traffic? We've got you covered. Whether you're looking for a no-frills, deep-tissue massage or a five-star pampering treatment (cucumber slices and all), the best massages in Los Angeles offer head-to-toe relaxation for every budget. From luxurious hotel spas to Korean day spas, traditional Thai spas and pared-down massage parlors, this city is brimming with options to get your zen on without breaking the bank.
Of course, if plush robes, extravagant locker rooms and high-end amenities fit your idea of relaxation, escape to a lavish hotel spa for a well-deserved splurge. (While you're at it, take the pampering up a notch and book a night at one of the best hotels in L.A. for a stress-free staycation.) But a spa doesn't have to be fancy or expensive to be effective— case in point: these cheap massage options where you can dip in and dip out for a 30-minute treatment to loosen up those knots. Others looking for a deep-tissue massage that's really going to work out the kinks can book a traditional Thai massage for a treatment steeped in ancient healing. You'll get stepped on, stretched and pulled in ways you never knew you needed for some serious tension relief.
Facials, body wraps, scrubs and mani-pedis also make an appearance on many of these spa menus for the ultimate refresh. No matter what of spa day you're looking for, find it here with our guide to the best massage in L.A., from cheap to mid-range and luxury venues.
