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: $49 gets you a one-hour Five Elements Facial ($95 value) and a hand paraffin treatment ($15 value) from AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa. Based on the lessons of traditional Chinese medicine, all AcuSpa's treatments are tuned to your individual skin and reveal the radiance buried within. You can top this cake of a deal with a dollop of microdermabrasion for an additional $20 (a $55 value). Call ahead to schedule your appointment.

AcuSpa's intimate, homey enclave perches above Pasadena's South Lake district. While you wait for AcuSpa's attentive aestheticians to lavish you with their double dose of decadent dermatologic deliciousnes, slip on a soft robe and chat with an ebullient bamboo. The Five Elements Facial uses steam, therapeutic massage, and a range of exfoliants and extractions to reduce wrinkles and cleanse the skin. Like the receipts, crumbs, pennies, and lint that linger in the depths of your purse, dead skin cells and dirt can clog your pores and form a dingy dead-face mask over your beautiful mug. A Five Elements Facial from AcuSpa dumps your face purse upside down, shakes out the crumbs, and vacuums up the dingy.

A paraffin wax treatment complements your now buttery visage, and it's the perfect way to soothe and rejuvenate your hands after a hard day of stringing barbed wire along your kitchen counter. First, the aestheticians coat your hands in lotion and essential oils, then dip them repeatedly in warm liquid wax. The wax infuses your hands with moisture, and once cooled and peeled off, turns your delicate digits velvety soft and leaves you with a set of wax-hands perfect for avoiding skin contact during handshakes or safely petting rabid dogs.

Reviews

Yelpers and Insider Pagers alike give AcuSpa a solid four-star rating:

  • This local spa is a wonderful retreat. The ambience is very relaxing and the services have been great…I really enjoy the atmosphere here and the staff is very friendly. – Annette M., Insider Pages
  • Great facials. Being a [sic] esthetics student and currently learning about facials, I would recommend this place…A great spa should be like AcuSpa where they cater to your skin condition and not just try to sell you a service. – Evelyn L., Yelp
  • The quality of the staff and services provided are exceptional…Each therapist has a special knack, knowledge, and confidence of their expertise; and that tied-in with Acuspa's unique services is what keeps me coming back for more! – M Q., Insider Pages

AcuSpa

A passion and appreciation for wellness is the foundation of AcuSpa. 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.

Customer Reviews

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the privacy of having a small infrared sauna we could share. They also provided us with water and cool wash clothes. Great little place.I would have never tried them if it wasn't for the groupon. I so happy I did.

This was a very pleasant place to visit in Pasadena. I loved the staff and found the room and infrared sauna to be exactly as I'd hoped. Water, bathrobe and aromatherapy towel proveded to wipe your face when you're done.
