An austere Buddha face greets guests to Beverly Hills Chakra Spa, where the staff promotes spiritual health with therapeutic massages and healing energy work. Before their session, clients settle into a carmine sofa, feasting their eyes on a twining turquoise vase and nearby dancing flames in cubist sconces. A customized one-hour massage softens tense muscles, evaporates accumulated stress, and improves circulation to estranged limbs that have given up writing each other birthday cards.
For souls in need of recalibration, a massage leads into a chakra-balancing session, which focuses on seven wheels of light said to act as foci for the body’s biophysical energy. As clients lie on the massage table, an energy expert places stones at each chakra point, lays precious crystals beside the body, and combines essential oils to stimulate the senses. Vibrations from seven Tibetan singing bowls please ears, dissolve energy blockages, and create a new playlist for metaphysical DJs. A tarot-card reading tops off the treatment and provides symbolic guidance. Because chakra dysfunction is said to affect everything from finances to love, the treatment aims to help resolve deep-seated issues and leave the answers to next year’s taxes ringing in clients’ ears.
Stacy Adams, owner of Chakra Spa, heads a team that specializes in chakra balancing and leads private yoga classes. Clients can relax as licensed massage therapists knead away tension and soothe backs with stones that aim to rebalance chakras. In private, low-lit chambers, therapists continue signature massages by ringing Tibetan crystal singing bowls, whose tones are said to remove energy obstructions and recalibrate the ears of struggling music producers. A tarot-card reading under a multicolored lotus painting concludes the signature package. Additionally, the spa exclusively uses Aveda creams and oils for all services. Accented with red orange and teal, the crisp, white lobby is adorned with candles, statues of famous varsity debaters, and flames nestled inside recesses in the wall.
