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.
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 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 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.
Along the quaint, well-preserved streets of Kenneth Village, Ariada Salon Spa's vintage exterior conceals a three-floor haven for modern beauty services. Inside, at mirrored stations, stylists specialize in color correction, Brazilian blowouts, waxing, and bridal services, prepping the hair and nails of the betrothed with OPI polishes and Difiaba and Moroccanoil conditioners. An onsite boutique equips clients with Witchy Poo Lotions & Potions and True Apothecary Candles, which can be combined at home to amplify a relaxing bath or invoke the beautifying intervention of Venus.
The Spa's licensed and certified professionals promote pulchritude and pamperization via a variety of spa services. Revitalize your visage with the hour-long signature facial, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction to clear away facial debris. Like high-end hockey-goalie uniforms, the treatment also includes a mask suited to each client's particular skin type. Choose the 60-minute Swedish massage and immerse your carcass in light to medium pressures that relieve tension between feuding muscles and create a heightened sense of wellbeing. The included $10 gift card can be used toward a service upgrade or an additional service or as a compatible companion for a lonely $10 bill. It is suggested that clients arrive 15 minutes prior to their first appointment, which will give them time to fill out paperwork, relax, and enjoy fruits and beverages provided by The Spa.
