In the Dark Ages, spas sprinkled massage beds with Legos and pieces of stale breakfast cereal. Revel in the comfort of modern spas with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a combination massage and acupuncture treatment with health analysis at AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa in Pasadena (up to a $145 value).
AcuSpa pampers patrons inside and out with a diverse array of treatments provided within a soothing atmosphere. A comprehensive health analysis (up to a $75 value) uses Chinese and Western medical approaches to determine the client's health needs and suss out ailments such as respiratory problems, gastrointestinal issues, or muscle and joint pain left over from long afternoons spent trying to knock clouds from the sky with baseballs and discuses. The evaluation is required before acupuncture treatments and is a useful aid in proper treatment.
Follow up the analysis with a combined massage and acupuncture treatment (a $70 value), which combines poky needles and prodding fingers to work out tight muscles and restore balance to the body. The natural and traditional therapy of acupuncture inserts fine needles into specific acupuncture points to reestablish the flow of qi, or circulating life energy. Much like when swimming in a vat of cough syrup, patients may experience tingling, warmth, heaviness, and euphoria throughout their treatments. The evaluation and the massage and acupuncture treatment will take about one hour and 15 minutes total.
AcuSpa's intimate, homey enclave perches above Pasadena's South Lake district. While you wait for your treatment, slip on a soft robe and chat with an ebullient bamboo. The boutique spa's private rooms are warmly lit with organic colors and plush heated tables.
AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa
A passion and appreciation for wellness is the foundation of AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa. The staff seeks to nurture, restore, and beautify their clients through acupuncture, massage therapy, and spa treatments. During acupuncture, they insert fine needles into the body to restore balance and help the recipients heal from such ailments as depression, hypertension, allergies, and migraines. Along with acupuncture, the state-licensed practitioners use an array of Chinese medical treatments including acussage: a combination of acupuncture and massage. They also preform a cosmetic Chinese facial to promote circulation and reduce puffiness, fine lines, and the likelihood of sour-beer face.
