Harmony Day Spa of Monterey Park is a boutique day spa that specializes in reflexology and aromatherapy massage. At the spa's newly opened second location, therapists supplement relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue massages with popular extras such as hot packs and cooling gel pads for the eyes. Their signature foot massage induces relaxation by applying gentle pressure to the heel, toes, and sickle-shaped claw, and eyelash services enhance and revamp looks.
At Omni Massage, part of Omni Salon, clients can stride past the green plants that fleck the front door and stretch out on a massage table, ready for soothing strokes from the in-house massage therapist. The therapist's full-body kneads restore peace to anxious minds and muscles, improving circulation in the process. Omni Salon complements bodywork sessions with hair services, nail treatments, and skincare such as facials.

Q&A with Tammy Phan, Manager
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Hot pads for different parts of the body, oils, and pain-relieving gel.
What are some of your most popular services? Why do you think clients love them so much?
Our most popular service is our 90-minute traditional Chinese and Swedish massage.
Clients love it because it helps relieve their pain and helps them relax at the same time.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
We have several clients that used to take sleeping pills every day, but since they [started] coming for our foot and body massages, they no longer need them. That's the reason I opened my spa?I love it when my clients say we made their day.
Licensed acupuncturist Jean Dao Chung didn't just open Healthy Green Acupuncture on a whim. First, she earned her master?s degree from South Baylo University School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, became licensed by the state of California, and traveled to Beijing to apprentice under some of the most respected professionals in the field. Healthy Green Acupuncture opened its doors in 1990 aiming to offer traditional Chinese-medicine treatments including acupuncture and herbal therapy. Backed by 5,000 years of tradition, Dr. Chung now alleviates conditions as diverse as gastrointestinal problems, endocrine disorders, and insomnia.
While she was paying the bills by writing, producing, and casting Hollywood projects, Roxy Han, L.Ac., harbored a secret fascination with health. In her spare time, Han would research health-related topics, and when anyone on set had a headache, a cough, or a sniffling pet rock, she would draw from a well of wellness wisdom to dole out advice. Eventually this earned her a reputation as the unofficial doctor wherever she was, but she didn't switch careers just yet.
Then, at a jujitsu convention, Han reached forward to perform an advanced-level throw on a black-belt fighter. In one painful pop, her shoulder was out of commission. Fortunately, Han's sensei was an acupuncturist, and the skills he demonstrated throughout the following week lessened her injury?s impact. Galvanized by this personal experience, Han trained with master acupuncturists, graduated from her program with honors, and became a professional needle master. Now, with the help of Doctors of Chiropractic Mary Ensign and Rick Fox, skilled acupuncturist Sandy Lee ? a former classmate of Han's who specializes in pain relief and psycho-emotional issues ? and a team of licensed massage therapists, she holistically treats a range of bodily symptoms.
Despite its name, Happy Feet ? Massage, Nail & Skincare doesn?t just make feet happy; it makes the whole body grin from ear to ear. Mixing Chinese medicinal herbs with techniques including reflexology and acupressure, the massage center?s therapists help eliminate tension and remove impurities. The centers immerse clients in bright traditional Asian decor, with plush, white beds complemented by red oriental lanterns, red curtains, and decorative art of Confucius jumping for joy after working out a kink in his neck.
