Healthy skin is not a luxury! 2/18/2010

Healthy skin is not a luxury......Miriam M. Signature skin treatments: You don't leave looking like you've been beaten up. She made me look like a million bucks- even when I had just pennies to my name on my wedding day. I visit her whenever possible, so relaxing my skin glows. She did my waxing A+. more

Creepy Male Massage Therapist 10/18/2009

Ron gave me a massage and he did not cover me properly. He asked if I wanted an abdominal massage and I said yes. When I turned over to face up, he put a small towel over my Double D chest and the towel barely covered my nipples leaving most of my chest uncovered. This guy is creepy. I wrote this review because I don't want any other woman to have to experience similar experience. Cons: Beware of this male therapist more

Awesome !!! 12/31/2008

I got a gift for a massage at this place from a friend of mine. Being a guy that's not too much into massages in the first place, I went there expecting pretty much the same as I got from my last massage experiences at some of the other well known places, they were just ok. (They were gifts too).\r \r Well all I can say is I'm hooked. First I love the feel of the place, small, cozy and a very, very comfortable feeling. The staff were great and friendly, the owners introduced themselves and were very down to earth. Something I missed at the other places. The decor is relaxing, it's not made to look like you need to relax, it just does it to you on it's own without any effort. \r The masseuse was AMAZING, I felt so comfortable and relaxed, I felt ""this is something I needed"", never had that feeling before either.\r \r The whole experience left me wanting more, I have been back pretty much every month for a relaxing break from the wonders of hospital nursing, and all I can say is that I will be continuing to carry that on. I live westside and I really think it's worth the drive.\r \r The only con for this place is that it's a hidden gem and that not everyone will hear about it, but hey I guess that's what makes this place the best spa in LA county which keeps me coming back ;) Pros: Price, experience you will get. more

SOLD! 12/9/2008

i am completely sold on this place. it is absolutely amazing. from the relaxing and healing atmosphere to the WORLD CLASS SERVICES, once you try it you won't want anything else! more

place of healing 12/1/2008

im giving acuspa five stars because I've had a mean sciatica my football days in high school. I've tried therapy for years, nothing worked till I happened on acuspa. It's just gone. It's a place for healing and therapy, not a huge spa or anything. The owner Kevin is incredible. I also got a deal for micro derm facial (my little secret). Anycase, I'm so grateful for my sciatica that I felt compelled to tell ya all about it. more

The Best Kept Secret in Pasadena 11/24/2008

I took 3 of my employees to the spa after a long hard month and they were SO happy. We spent the afternoon there and all got a facial and massage. I know they have gone back since. \r \r Giving people a chance to pamper themselves is the best gift. With the holidays coming up, I know exactly what to give! more

Highly Recommended 3/31/2008

I visited Acuspa for a couples massage for Valentine's Day. We were treated to first class service. The place was so quaint. It was just what we needed to escape the busy LA life. The customer service was fantastic. Everyone on staff went out of their way to make us feel special. And the massage was out of this world. Helen and Bree are both simply amazing. I would highly recommend Acuspa to anyone seeking a relaxing treat for themselves. Acuspa truly goes above and beyond all expectations. more

Best Massage Therapist & Acupuncturist! 1/29/2008

I loved this spa! I've been a loyal client of Kevin Taylor's for about 5 years. He is the best massage therapist. He actually is a Acupuncturist, so he really understands the body and has helped many problems I've had with my pains. The spa is beautiful and cozy. It is smaller than other spa's but I feel this allows for a more personal relationship. Alice the spa director is genuine. She is detailed, professional and NICE. I would highly recommend that you try out this spa. Its a gem! more

Great Local Retreat 1/29/2008

This local spa is a wonderful retreat. The ambience is very relaxing and the services have been great. (the massages very relaxing, and the facialists were very experienced). I really enjoy the atmosphere here and the staff is very friendly. I am definitely a regular. more

Filled With Little Surprises! 1/28/2008

I've been a client since they opened and my husband recently surprised me with a mini retreat (facial/massage package). After my services, as I sat in my car w/a big smile....I thought, they did it again! The quality of the staff and services provided are exceptional. Without any explanation on my part, they know where I need attention (whether it be unwanted visitors on my face, to deep hidden knots that I didn't even know I had) and apply the appropriate/best needed products/pressure so that by the time I leave the spa I truly feel and look like a new person. Each therapist has a special knack, knowledge, and confidence of their expertise; and that tied-in with Acuspa's unique services is what keeps me coming back for more! You will walk away with a smile leaving Acuspa because each time they will happily surprise you! more

private, excellent service 1/28/2008

If you?re looking for a good massage for health and stress relief, this is the place. I get a lot of massages and really appreciate the personal attention compared to other places. Kevin is awesome. He?s a white guy that has a degree in Chinese medicine, which I think it?s cool. He has a massage school, so I guess he?s knows what?s up. I get a lot of good tips on how to keep healthy. It?s also very private. Parking is easy. Pros: the staff is very good. more

real massage for healing. 1/28/2008

I've got a list of chronic aches and pains that my doctor recommended massage for. After trying a lot of places that gave me what felt like a glorified oil rub (that did nothing but maybe soften my skin), I found acuspa on online. The boss their is Kevin Taylor who knows the in and outs of the body quite impressively. He used to be a body builder and now is a master masseuse and doctor in acupuncture. I?m not sure what he did, but my chronic pain is gone ? most surprisingly my lower back which has been hurting since high school. Proof being in the pudding, I took Kevin?s recommendation for acupuncture and an herb regimen ? and I?ve never felt better. It?s a quaint intimate place, which I prefer. The staff is nice. But all that I?m not so concerned with. I feel so much better, that?s all I care about. Pros: focus on healing. every therapist is excellent. Kevin Taylor is amazing. Cons: not a huge place, but I prefer that. more

Best Massage and Facial! 12/10/2007

AcuSpa came highly recommended by a friend. I went and got the Spa Retreat. It was awsome! for $166.00 i received a one hour massage, a one hour facial, a hand parraffin and a foot scrub! The services were high quality, you could tell they have been doing this for a long time. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The space was so tranquil and relaxing. Can't wait to go back. more

Love it! 11/18/2007

I have been a client of AcuSpa for years and I love referring my friends to it. They are tucked away and have built their business mostly on referrals. The spa is intimate, and the staff is very accommodating to your needs, but the best part for me is the massage. I have consistently received excellent massages there. I have a busy schedule and it's difficult to stay loyal to one person. I usually squeeze in when I can and I have loved all my massages. It's so therapeutic and relaxing at the same time. I usually add the foot scrub! I would recommend AcuSpa for anyone who needs their body worked on and wants to be pampered. more

Tried to schedule... 10/30/2007

I set up an appointment to get an acumassage which is an intriguing combination of acupuncture and massage. It was a little pricey at $140 but I thought it would certainly be worth it. Unfortunately, the receptionist called back an hour and a half before my appointment to tell me that I would need to do a health consultation that would take an hour and would run an additional $45. Upon talking to Kevin, the therapist, to clarify what this was, he mumbled a lot about it being state requirement. All of this I understand, but have yet, with ANY acupuncturist to be charged a diagnosis fee. I explained this to Kevin, and his only response was to mumble, "you're not going to find the acumassage anywhere else". more

Hooked! 8/13/2007

I am a spa enthusiast and I love trying differnt spas. My friend told me about AcuSpa and told me that once I go, I'll never want to go to another spa. She was right, I'm hooked. The spa, although on the small side, radiates peace. The staff is super accomodating. I had the Spa Retreat Package (massage, facial, foot scrub, and hand paraffin).I was jelly by the time I was finished.Their services are 60 minute hours! But the real reason I'm hooked is the massage-theraputic and pampering! The therapist knew all the right spots.\r I recommend AcuSpa to anyone who likes quality services and being pampered. more

Gem in the rough 11/19/2006

tucked away in the now-bustling Lake Avenue, this relatively small spa has a very calming environment - dark woods, dim lights, trickling waters.\r \r Both times my facial & massage here have been very exquisite - with just enough feedback from the facialist/masseuse. The owner (Kevin Taylor) also is very attentive to make sure the experience is a positive one.\r \r The regular pricing is fair, but they also hold a lot of seasonal specials - so check it out on their Web site before booking an appointment. Pros: great service, good pricing Cons: could have a more extensive set of services more
