Sparagon Massage's therapists like to lend their clients a helping hand?or two. They run their little retreat from the world in the midst of Studio City. Inside, though, the hustle of and bustle of the neighborhood ceases, and the therapists' work begins. They perform a variety of massage styles, including staples such as Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and reflexology. They also have a few specialties, such as Thai massage or Thai yoga, a series of assisted stretches that limber up the body, relieve tension, and bring you a few inches closer to transforming into a swan.
California native Jania Foxworth's massage education took her all the way to South America, where she fine-tuned techniques such Swedish strokes and Thai bodywork under the guidance of highly trained muscle menders. This was a magnificent stepping stone. Now, Foxworth's client roster includes athletes, actors, and even notable celebs––The Office's Angela Kinsey and Glee's Heather Morris, to name a few. While enjoying a therapeutic massage, guests may request sumptuous add-ons such as an exfoliating foot scrub or soothing aromatherapy.
Based on its name, it's not surprising that the massage therapists at Kittima Thai Massage are experts in Thai massage, a bodywork system that combines assisted stretching with Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to ease chronic tension. They offer 60- and 90-minute massage sessions and may combine their speciality with other modalities. In addition to Thai massages, they also offer prenatal, aromatherapy, and hot-stone massages.
As its name implies, Relax House Massage pampers guests with muscle-soothing treatments. Skilled therapists tackle knots with gliding Swedish strokes, heated stones, or the gentle stretching of a Thai massage. A licensed cosmetologist is also on hand to beautify exteriors with facials and waxing services.
At Wat Po Thai Spa, a 2010 nominee for Best Day Spa by Best of LA, technicians bolster well-being with services that range from traditional Thai massage to skincare. The house-specialty Thai Combo fuses Thai massage, Swedish massage, and reflexology into an international amalgamation of relaxation similar to naptime at the UN. Thai massage harnesses compression, stretching, and rocking techniques to improve circulation of vital energy along the body's pathways, and Swedish massage encompasses gentle strokes such as gliding, kneading, and stretching to increase oxygen flow in the blood and forge full-body tension relief. Patrons walk away from massage sessions with relieved stress, allayed aches, increased internal alignment, and enough flexibility to fold bodies into an empty Pringles can at the first sign of danger.
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.
