Chaba Herbal Spa & Thai Yoga Massage?s owner traveled the world to bolster her therapeutic knowledge. She began studying the art of Thai massage in Bangkok, Thailand, at the Watpro Traditional Medical School. After finishing her program, she packed her bags and journeyed to Los Angeles, where she accumulated a pet palm tree and 500 hours of massage-therapy schooling with a focus on traditional Thai massage. She uses this combination of cultural knowledge and varied techniques to treat clients with massages that fuse multiple disciplines into one soothing session. She also surrounds her clients with Thailand-influenced decor, including green plants, live flowers, and bubbling fountains that ease stress. In addition to massages, the spa also offers skin and body treatments, waxing services, and reflexology sessions.

The rest of the body benefits too, as Thai yoga massage and hot-stone massage modalities are kneaded deep into sinews to release trapped tension or that song that's been trying to get out for days.
Every time David Kuo got hurt playing sports as a child, his mother did what most mothers would do?she gave him tender affection and a couple of painkillers. And most of the time, he'd accept the love but toss out the pills. Growing up, David always felt there had to be another way of bolstering health and recovering from injuries aside from conventional medicine. Inspired by this notion, he went on to attain a BS in sports medicine from Pepperdine University before earning a doctorate of chiropractic from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1994.
Since then, Dr. Kuo?the owner of HealthSource of Pasadena?has helped patients to feel and stay healthy with treatments he says are focused on "supporting the body's own innate intelligence to heal itself." Blending his experiences as an exercise physiologist and sports-medicine specialist with his chiropractic training, he's treated an array of conditions ranging from lingering backaches to chronic bed-wetting to vision-impairing astigmatisms. Dr. Kuo often says to people, "I've gotten three women pregnant," jokingly referring to the female patients who've come to him for treatment because of difficulties conceiving or an immobilizing fear of storks.
Opened in 2007, HealthSource of Pasadena's 1,300-square-foot facility houses three treatment rooms, one massage room, and one rehabilitation area. Dr. Kuo emphasizes patient education by decorating the office with information-laden items, including anatomical posters that the licensed massage therapists use to show patients how the hipbone's connected to the knee bone.
