No recommend here.. Based on the good reviews, I tried it. Not warmly greeted. No showers or other space. Won't go back. Also list treatments they don't currently have. Weird.
Great (new) place. I just read calteg's review! Yikes. I just got waxed there and it was great! They moved to a new location (they are on street level now no longer over the gym) and I think they are really nice. It felt really good to be in there, the place was very relaxing and everybody was very professional, friendly and calm. I would like to try to the acupuncture, so I will check back when I do!
HORRIBLE BRAZILLIAN BIKINI WAX!! Beware!. I had my Brazilian bikini wax done here and I was left bleeding, and I had chunks of skin missing! It took almost 2 1/2 weeks for it to completely heal and scab over. It was SO PAINFUL! I will NEVER go to this place again! Next time I'll pay more for someone who knows the the F they are doing!
Relaxing HIdden Gem. Despite arriving late, we were warmly greeted and allowed downtime to decompress before the treatment. began I had the best massage ever - Yvonne worked on many of my shoulder knots and applied just the right amount of pressure to be effective yet still enjoyable! My mother had a facial that included both a head and neck massage besides the skin extractions. She truly glowed at the way out! We'll be back!
Excellent boutique day spa. What a delightful "boutique" spa. The minute you walk in you notice the wonderful smell and the feeling of zen. The prices are reasonable ($70 an hour for a swedish massage) and the service is excellent. The spa is located in a very sweet small town so it is worth it to make a day of shopping and treating yourself to a relaxing massage or facial. They also offer Dr. Hauschka skincare! I highly recommend this quaint spa as a great alternative to the big commercial spas.
Tiny and quaint. . ..
I have been to larger spas - Amadeus and Burke Williams, and I have been to smaller day spas Escape Day Spa (in Manhattan Beach - I recommend this one!!!) and Zen Spa in Pasadena. . . this is a smaller spa. No ammenities like steam room, showers or saunas.
It was a little hard to find because it was upstairs in the middle of the street - on the east side. Once I walked in, I was greeted by my therapist, Donna. She was pleasant, and I would go back only because of her. I am in my first pregnancy, and just started my second trimester. I got a 90 minute pre-natal massage, and she went over the time. . . I needed that!
a soothing oasis. I made an appointment for a facial on the recommendation of a friend who loves this spa. I was early, so sat out on the balcony overlooking the shops and park and finished a coffee, just relaxing....once inside, the Center was cozy and welcoming, with a quiet air of peace--think lotus flowers and orchids, a serene buddha, silk cushions, soft meditative music, and the scent of essential oils. The esthetician who greeted me noted that I had been out in the sun a bit much lately, and she adjusted the facial accordingly. I liked the products she used, both the feel on my skin and scent, and she told me about their development and ingredients. I nearly fell asleep while steaming. She did a thorough job of extractions, and when i left, my face (and the rest of me!) felt cleansed, nourished, hydrated, and soothed...i made an appointment to return in a couple of weeks for a massage and am looking forward to making this a regular experience! I would highly recommend the Center for Wellbeing to anyone seeking a professional skin care service with the added touch of a soothing environment. I'll let you know about the massage after I have it!
A sweet little spa in the delightful village of Sierra Madre!. From eyebrow shaping to therapeutic massage and wonderful skincare treatments in between, The Center for Wellbeing meets my every need with knowledgeable and charming staff. When I began my regimen as a new client in 2004, I was made to feel very comfortable with my questions and concerns. I always plan on spending most of the day in Sierra Madre - sometimes hiking in the San Gabriel hills, sometimes visiting the nearby Arboretum before dropping into The Center for Wellbeing. I highly recommend 'my' little sanctuary!
