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.


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

I really enjoyed the experience. Very mind opening. I am coming back.

Very peaceful, lovely spot! Kevin was wonderful. I'm not one to give out unearned compliments, and this place definitely earned it. The spa itself has a very tranquil feel to it, and Kevin did a terrific job of easing my apprehension and offering suggestions for at-home ways of combating stress. I plan to go back for another acupuncture session once a week or so. Lovely!

The massage acupuncture combination is amazing. The owner is a very talented practitioner. I have fibromyalgia and have chronic pain and fatigue. I felt better than I had in years. Better than any massage I'd ever had. They offered me the opportunity to return at the Groupon price until the end of the year. I made weekly appointments on the spot.
