Beautifying sojourns at Amadeus Spa & Salon—a San Gabriel Valley Regional Winner in the Los Angeles Times’ Readers’ Choice 2011—begin with complimentary access to a eucalyptus steam room before downy robes and cushy slippers slip physiques into the uniform of luxury. For the Valentine Temptation massage, therapists warm muscles with an essential oil specifically chosen by the client, kneading pairs on side-by-side tables and stag spa-goers in private treatment rooms. Then technicians flavor feet with a natural sugar scrub, which exfoliates surfaces and convinces friends that you trampled Candyland. For the solo package, a refresher facial analyzes and invigorates mugs in 30 minutes, lightly cleansing pores before a mask and hydrator soften complexions.
A rest area provides a peaceful sanctum for guests to indulge in chocolate truffles and glasses of wine, which relaxes throats stressed from filling in for the town crier. Fully refreshed, customers reclaim their validated vehicles for journeys to places where they can sustain their peaceful moods.
Cofounder Tina Mui-Wong boasts a passion for the beauty industry that spurred her to earn a cosmetology license before completing high school and establish a pair of spas that have thrived for more than 25 years. In a 2010 interview with Pasadena Magazine, Mui-Wong admits to being a "product freak," which is reflected in her role as developer of Amadeus's signature line, T.E.A. The staff and salon has appeared in the film Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, graced television screens on ABC's Extreme Makeover, and exhibited their handiwork on the Rose Bowl queen and her court of chrysanthemum noblesse for two decades.
Amadeus takes pride in its custom massages, and re-trains every nail technician in-house to ensure updated mastery of the hand jive. Guests receive slippers, robes, and complimentary skin consultations upon request, and may pad down the scented hallways after their treatment to decompress in a eucalyptus steam room.
