best skin massage, best massage staff, great place, great experience, best therapists, best brooks, great price
Steve is great, I am going back today. Going back to Brooks today I tried another place in the valley last month because of a promotional special, and the massage was horrible! For a top quality, attentive, deep massage, there is no place like Brooks. Five stars from me!
Guaranteed Strong Awesome Massage. I've been going to Brooks for years and it's one of the only places in LA I've found therapists who you can rely on to give you a real deep tissue massage. I've never been disappointed by the massages there and have tried many different therapists. The spa facilities are an added bonus and the location is central. Treat yourself!
Most amazing Massage in TOWN!!. I have to say first off that Brooks has the most gifted massage therapists on the planet working here. I have been going to this establishment since I was 18 and am now 30 and I have never been dissapointed. All of the employees and therapists are extremely humble and wait on you hand and foot. The best thing about Brooks is that it's not some place you go to expecting glitz and glam but rather a great massage with a great atmosphere and best of all you get what you pay for. I would highly reccomend Brooks to anyone
BEST MASSAGE EVER!!!.
A girlfriend of mine had recommended this place to me one time and since I live so close I thought I would give it a try.
Parking I would say is the only con that I had, they told me I could either try and find street parking or that I could park at a meter and they would fill it while I was there(since it's only an hour). I didn't want to chance anyone forgetting to feed the meter and get me a ticket, so I decided on street parking. Now, fyi, street parking is pretty difficult to find in this area, but I managed to find quite a few spots a block north on Curson.
To look at this place you wouldn't think such skilled and wonderful therapists would work here. The lobby(ish) area is really shabby, the decor is confused with itself and there are definitely no bells and whistles,
BUT by the end of your session, the shabbiness becomes almost charming...like a tacky mom and pop restaurant with the best fish and chips.
I arrived earlier than my appointment like the receptionist had recommended in order to use the steam and sauna rooms. Felt soooooo nice to warm up my muscles and relax.
Now for the massage! I had James as my therapist and WOW!! does he know what he is doing!! The pressure was perfect, not too light, but also not trying to break me either and he knew exactly where i needed the most work and he worked my knots right out. Very professional and wonderful. I felt like it was almost possible to float home after wards. :)
Seriously, no joke...BEST massage of my life!!
Question for Brooks patrons. Does anyone know where Peter went? The man is a genius and I'm desperate to find him. Thanks!
HANDS DOWN BROOKS IS THE BEST!!!!. Brooks is amazing, I had walked past this place and didn't think much of it from the outside but as I went inside to see what this place was all about the front desk receptionist was very friendly and gave me great information along with a tour. As I have been there now a few times each and every time the visit was very enjoyable, if I ever need anything the staff is very helpful and the massages I've had there are always AWSOME! Another thing that impressed me was the steam room, private resting rooms, and sauna with eucalyptus which was great. Also the fact that you don't have to stress out about parking, they take care of it for you whether it's at a meter or with the valet guys. All in all the place is clean, simple and the therapists are the best!
Brook's is a Great Place for a Deep Tissue Massage. I have had several good deep tissue massages at Brook's. I cannot complain at all. However, I do not care for the shower/spa area especially since it doesn't seem private when the host/hostess gives a tour to new users. I highly recommend getting a massage here because they have some of the best massage therapists working here and they also have great rates when you compare them to Burke Williams, etc. Just shower before you arrive.
Be Very Clear About What You Want.
I read many of the reviews before going here. It was better than I expected in regard to the amenities. Don't expect Burke Williams, but it's nice that it's more than just a massage... they do have a dry sauna, a steam room, etc.
When I walked in, I got a tour. I was shown to my room. This part is quite nice, actually. You get your own little room to lie down, put your stuff, etc. Then you're called out when the therapist is ready and you move into a treatment room.
This is where my disappointment began.
I was expecting a big, burly Russian man, who was going to knead my knots away, per the reviews. That's not what I got. I got a small-framed, gentle man, who didn't ask me what I wanted, but assumed I wanted to focus on my neck, shoulders and back. I said, "definitely... these are the areas I want to focus on." The massage begins and I'm getting a nice, relaxing skin massage. I'm wondering when the kneading will begin. He tells me to let him know if I would like it firmer. I said, "definitely on the upper back and shoulders." He says, "yes, we'll get to that..." The entire hour goes by and my knots were not worked on. My upper back and shoulders were caressed for a bit, but that's it.
In hindsight, I guess I wasn't clear about what I wanted, though I thought I was and felt a bit dismissed when I mentioned it during the treatment.
I basically had a one-night stand with no O. It was nice, but I didn't get what I came for.
can't beat it. as many other reviewers state, you just can't beat brooks on price and quality of services. i want to add that i've been going for the past several years and always leave feeling terrific. will is the absolute best: intuitive, strong and very thorough, and uses a variety of techniques. i always book an hour with will and even that seems insufficient, he is that good. for a superb deep tissue sports massage, yuri and andre can't be beat. the facilities are small but clean and quite frankly, i like brooks much better than burke williams and the fancier places because i like getting massages regularly and frequently. brooks delivers on consistency and value. i highly recommend.
Nice Personality. This place is really great. They were so nice and the service was outstanding. Only thing is I had trouble with parking.
