Burbank >Chaba Thai Spa Burbank
great place, best thai massage, best thai spa experience, favorite little spa, best massage therapist, great staff, great prices
If you really need a massage to "work" it out.... Walked in without an appointment. They assigned someone to me right away--no wait involved. This charming little Thai massage studio sits in the back of an unassuming strip mall...don't be fooled! It may look like no frills from the outside (only adding to its charm) but once inside the doors... the world melts away. The soothing and beautiful atmosphere accentuates the best massage I've ever had, and I've had many. I do believe the Thai technique is far superior and consider myself converted. The Thai style seems to involve a wider variety of moves to work out the tension in your hips and spine. Though I was sore the day after, the massage was effective. This isn't a hoity-toity day spa. The massage I had here was as good as a far more expensive one offered at the Bliss spa chain.You come out feeling re-energized, stretched out, de-stressed, de-toxed...downright deeeelightful! And the overall comfort factor, decor-wise, is better than that of other budget places with which I'm familiar.
Ahhhhh, another magical massage at Chaba.
For the price, this place actually gets 5 stars - IT ROCKS!
However, place note that my 5 stars is taking price into consideration. If you want a big sauna/jacuzzi, etc, this is not the place for you. They do have a wonderful massage and classy small clean room.
I had a 90 min massage at the Chaba Thai Spa today and it was a very positive experience. My therapist was very professional and used amazing techniques and the perfect amount of pressure. She was very in tune with my needs and focused on my concern areas. She chatted with me at points during the session but only when I initiated it.
My day began by arriving 15 minutes early. I filled out my paperwork and the friendly receptionist walked me to the room. After 90 minutes of bliss. I enjoyed the flavored of thai icetea and snack.
For one person going by him/herself, i think this place is the best! Clean, easy parking, friendly, efficient...
Parking availability, asthetically pleasing establishment, high quality massage therapists with private rooms.
Always An Amazing Experience... I have been a client here for over 1 year. I have come to Chaba many times and everytime is just as wonderful as the first. I have also been to different spa's in the L.A and around the World, none of them compare to the warmness Chaba brings. The services are wonderful The massage here is the best!! Those girls really enjoy what their jobs, it show's in the energy they express..you just can't fake that. If you've never been to Chaba, believe me its worth every penny. If you've been to Chaba and maybe not had quite the wonderful experience, you should give it another try. Everybody is due a off day, however, I'm not sure that happens at Chaba!! Thanks girls for always making my experience so wonderful..You ladies truly have a gift .
Chaba was the best Thai spa experience I ever had..
I LOVE this place!! Chaba definitely has the best Thai massages in the area. The place is super cute-- kind of countryside in thailand/exotic chic, clean, and while still giving each customer privacy. I've had different masseuses (is that what you call them?) each time and they've all been amazing. They know exactly where you need extra attention and work out EVERY knot you have. Every time I leave here, I always sit in my car for a few minutes savoring the floating feeling of my body before finally driving away-- yes, it's really that good!from the beginning and the small plate of fruit and tea after each session are nice bonuses as well.
While I've gotten the thai, swedish massage here, my friend tried the deep tissue as well and enjoyed it, although she agrees that the main attraction is the combo massage. Be warmed though, if this is your first time getting a thai combo massage, it can be very, very painful. There were definitely times I was holding back screams when the masseuse attacked my upper back, but it's totally worth it in the end. These people know what they're doing!
Massages here are ahhhh-mazing!.
Wow oh wow....what can I say? Thanks citysearch reviewers....my first time to this place today and boy, talk about getting knots out of back/shoulders. The massage I had was great and parking was easy. For the price you pay for the massage, it's definitely worth it. I had Tan who was recommended and so I went with it, and definitely will be going back. From the time you walk in to the time you walk out, it's such a positive experience. They offer you chocolate truffle, fruit an thai icetea, coffee, organic hot tea drink depending on what mood you want to be in when your experience is over.
After my 90-minute massage, I was lead to waiting area is a bit smaller, everything is nicely decorated, the people are friendly, and they don't rush on you. So if you're planning on having a relaxing experience without the stuffiness, then this is the place to go. If you get facial here They even do some massage on neck, back, and arms so if you can't do massage, don't worry. At least half of you will feel relaxed.
I would like to mention that they have VIP mailing list so make sure you join their mailing list.
I attained Nirvana at Chaba!!.
Best massage I've ever had in my entire life! It looks like a hole in the wall but when you step inside, you're at peace. I highly recommend the deep tissue massage. I have chronic back pain and the deep tissue massage at Chaba is the ONLY thing that relieves my pain and keeps me symptom free for over 2 months!! Amazing amazing amazing! And the fact that they have the lowest prices makes it easy to keep going back.
Seriously, if you want the most relaxing AND effective massage, go to Chaba!
This place is Awesome!!!!.
Absolutely the best place for a best massage!! Plus they open late which is good if you had to work over time and am now pissed and need a massage to wind down.
(I don't know about their other services - I've only been here for massages.)
Don't judge the little ladies by their size because they can really dig into all the painful knots in muscle groups you never even know you had.
Definitely not only for people who think massages are about "relaxing."
Definitely for those who think massages are for ironing out painful knots in your back and cracking some bones into place ;-)
The place is clean, professional and nicely decorated especially for the price you are paying. It's not a hoity toity spa, but its not bare basic ghetto either. It's somewhere in the middle.
Don't get freaked out by the way it looks on the outside, the inside is nice.
We go twice a month when we can get the time for a footrub. The full body massage is also well worth the price. The people are friendly and accommodating -- this is my favorite cheap getaway spot when the stress gets to be too much! They offer thai icetea at the end and a cozy spot..
If you are looking for a relaxing but effective massage.
In the past when I have gotten massages I have ended up getting more westernized massages... usually swedish or deep tissue.
This Thai combo massage was an excellent change! My best friend and I decided to get their 90 minute massage and it was by far the best massages we have ever had.
Just like everyone else, Jasmine asked in the beginning whether or not I would like the massage to be soft, medium or hard. I asked for medium/hard, and it was definitely hard enough. In the past I have had trouble with masseus'(sp?) not being hard enough, but if anything it was too hard (which is a nice change)! The way that Jasmine contorted my body and walked on my back took out every ache and pain conceivable. I felt very refreshed afterwards Well worth the price!!
CHABA !!I really like this place...
The reason I love them is twofold:
1) I have had excellent massages
2) The front desk is friendly and knowledgeable.
I really like this one therapist (no I am NOT telling you because I'll never be able to get an appt with her again!) but she is frequently booked. The girl at the front said, well, if you like her, maybe you should try ******. Sure enough, very similar styles and equal results.
The place is clean and well kept.
The massage I received from this glorious place was truly extraordinary. I had an amazing therapist who seemed to read my mind. Best face/head massage ever (this is one of my favorite places to be massaged and they STARTED with it!)
This was probably one of the best massages I've received in my life. And all this without the pish-posh "spa" atmosphere. No, I don't want to take an unnecessary shower in your huge, scary, cold shower room. I don't want to put on your robe. Really. I just want to feel good.
Chaba totally delivered. I'll definitely be going back. completely worth it.
The ambience is really nice and relaxing. They have private rooms where they do their work, and free cappucino and thai icetea in the lobby. So delicious. My therapist is very kind and understanding and thoroughly knowledgable.
Hurts so good!.
Overall, my first Thai-style massage at Chaba was awesome. It was clean, inexpensive, and semi-relaxing (hello, I know it hurts, but please keep your grunting to a minimum). Thank you Citysearch for introducing me to CHABA..I don't think I'll be going back to those boujie joints for a massage! now I know why Chaba got voted for best massage.
Hands down. No contest. After my class this morning (yay for Hollywood Aerial Arts!), everything in my upper body needed a little TLC. The place was clean and calming, and everyone there was super friendly. I was escorted to a private room and shown a pair of short to put on. Sophia, my masseuse, asked a few questions and then she set to work. Having never experienced a Thai-style massage I didn't know what to expect. But after a few minutes my sore shoulders felt like putty and I was silently thanking my fellow for turning me on to yet another amazing find. The massage was deep enough to release muscle tension, but not enough to inflict pain. Just remember to breathe through the stretches and pressure. It hurts more if you hold your breath! Luckily the massage was so damn good that I was blissed out and didn't really mind. Just be sure to enter the place with a low voice. The peeps in the treatment rooms will surely appreciate it.
