best massage in LA!!!.
i've walked by this place countless amounts of times, and finally deceided to go in to see what it was all about. man was i missing out! super friendly staff the moment you walk in, wonderful private rooms for the ladies(with chocolate!!) : ) and the massage, oh the massage!!...i was mush when i came out and every muscle in my body was at ease.
overall it was a very comfortable and relaxing experience and one that i plan on having again in the VERY near future!
I've gone to a few massage places around town, and to a few spas. Granted that Brooks isn't as modern and clean as places like Raya, the masseurs here are tops, (especially is you like deep tissue). Also, they don't swindle you for the last ten minutes of a massage as I've noticed many spas now give 50 minute massages for around $100 bucks. If you get to Brooks before 1:30PM M-F, you can grab a great two hour massage for about $135 bucks!
The "Spa" section isn't quite up to par, but if you're not picky, you can get a sauna and steam while you're there. The point is, you'll get more for your money and leave just as relaxed, if not MORE, than other more pricey places. I'd also like to add that the staff is very friendly and welcoming. One warning: Don't dump the eucalyptus oil onto the stones in the sauna! I thought it was water, but learned quickly that it was oil! I felt like a total dork when the receptionist asked me, "did it catch on fire?!"
this is NOT a spa-- it's a cold green hospital setting-I would not go here ever again.. First of all, if you are looking for a relaxing spa experience--this is NOT the place to go...I would compare it to fast food of the restaurant industry with a hospital design. I say this because when I entered, I had totally different expectations. They put you in dressing rooms that look like a cold hospital room to change--the color of the walls is a morbid green. Then there is one little bathroom, a VERY small steam room and sauna. When I went upstairs for the massage, the room looked like a dirty table, old towels, and really similar to a hospital setting. The therapist was so aggressive and when I told him to please be a little more gentle he said maybe this is not the massage I was looking for--of course I didn't come to be in pain for an hour!! I am usually not one to complain, but this really was a frustrating experience. When I told the girl in the front about my experience, she said well if you don't want to leave a tip, just don't--that was not my point. If you want a fast, cheap massage, that makes you feel like you are in a cold green hospital setting, this is the place to go. If not, there are so many great spas and places to get massages in los angeles, that I would never go here again.
Great little massage place. My friend and I used to take advantage of their discount: 30 minutes for $30. What a bargain! The masseuse really knew what she was doing. You can stay in their steam room and sauna for as long as you want. The place isn't very large or fancy but it really hits the spot!
Yury is the best massage therapist in the land.. I like really deep tissue massages and Yury is definitely the man for the job. The first time I ever went, I could barely turn my neck because I was in such pain. As Yury was kneading my upper back, I asked, "Are those knots you're going over?" And in the thickest Russian accent, he answered, "Yes! But I will destroy them!" From that moment on, I was sold. He has never failed me.
AMAZING and REJUVENATING!! THE place to go for a massage, no question.. Here's where to find that little piece of bliss to tuck away in your day- from the moment the receptionist ushers you in towards your private suite, you're feeling absolutely taken care of. There's an amazing vibe throughout the place- mellow and relaxed and calm. THEN you have the massage, and if you like someone taking ALL of the stress out of EVERYTHING, this is the place for you. As a dancer, I suffered a pulled groin last summer, and it took all of an hour for Peter to shiatsu me on my way to recovery, and I have to say that no one else had been able to help me with the pain. But he certainly was, and it was incredible. A couple more things to consider- how lovely and warm and welcoming the staff is, the sauna and steam room and shower made available to you, and the personal suite you have to just relax if you want. Another plus? You have the most amazing and lovely and fantastic experience- and it's still affordable!! I would highly recommend Brooks as THE number one spot in LA for a massage, no question about it. When you walk away, not only is your body nourished and rejuvenated, but so is your spirit.
what a relief!. i just moved here and i was totally overwhelmed. my back was killing me from moving furniture and unpacking. i got a deep tissue massage and at first i thought "oh no! more pain." but a couple days later i felt better than i had in my whole life. yuri rocks!
the most authentic massage anywhere. this spa has the best feeling about it the minute you walk in. it is unpretentious, clean, and friendly. and the therapists are the best anywhere. i have been to the big fancy spas in beverly hills and los angeles and i prefer this one over all the rest. i wish i could go every week!! i love getting my own private little room that makes me feel like i am worlds away from the big city. i always look forward to spending an afternoon there!
so prepared!. This place not only offers really effective massages at reasonable prices-- they also are prepared for everyone. I forgot my shampoo-- no problem because they provide that...and soap and deodorant and on and on! I don't know how they supply all this without tacking on extra charges, but I dare not ask. It's so rare in this city to get something you don't expect. By the way, my massage was with Margarita and she is amazing.
they made me a zombie and i loved it!. I have never been so relaxed in my life. I am a frequent flier and I like to hike in the cities I visit. The therapist (wish I could remember her name) found a way to ease every muscle in my body. I will go here every time i am in LA!
