Neha & Namesh 3/27/17
The massage was great, personalized to my needs
Very friendly and worked problem areas nicely.
“Great relaxing massage! Calming atmosphere would recommend to friends and family!”
The crystal bowls were amazing! Very relaxing and soothing to start the experience! The massage was great as well! Overall GREAT experience, thank you!
Was very peaceful! Would come back again. The crystal bowls were my favorite part – I felt really comfortable and relaxed during the whole treatment. Would definitely recommend it.
My massage therapist was incredibly attentive to my needs and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. She incorporated my feelings into the release of tension which was highly effective. I would be a regular if we lived in California!
Phenomenal! I will be back and I would like to see Sedona again. She read me very well and I appreciate her so much!
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I felt completely relaxed during the session, and even more so once it was finished. Very relaxing & very friendly!
I felt like I was in heaven, this is the kind of experience I hope for when going to a spa, “that you don’t want to leave.” I felt so comforted, & at peace. Sedona had the touch making me feel super relaxed and enlightened. Everything felt so amazing. I feel healed and healthy. The environment is perfectly beautiful and serene as well. Thank you!!
Sally M 3/14/17
The jacuzzi before the massage! How quiet and calm the place was. I can feel the great vibes and energy which was stress free and peaceful! I truly was able to relax and escape reality for the few hours that I was here. Thank you so very much!
Michael B. 3/10/17
Thank you, thank you! My best friend and I came to you needing to heal mind, body, and spirit. The staff at this sanctuary of a spa really made sure we felt restored and rejuvenated. The small touches go such a long way. We will be back!
The massage was lovely; particularly the head massage!
Such a calming atmosphere, I loved every minute I was here. I was also happily surprised when I got to use the sauna! I will definitely be coming back!
My experience was incredible! I absolutely loved the hot stone massage!
While going through a hectic period of life, this experience certainly helped me relax and reflect. Much needed!
My neck had been so tight from traveling for the last three weeks, and the massage was amazing! Was so lovely to have the knots in my neck “ironed” out!
I absolutely loved the massage…it was the first time I felt something that deep and specific on my shoulders! Love the ambiance. Would definitely come back.
The massage and the sauna were great! I especially loved the massage, the privacy, and the music. Very cozy and intimate space. Overall was a lovely and relaxing experience!
The best part of my time at the spa was the massage! Super relaxing environment, friendly staff, outstanding facilities. Sandie is really personable and goes out of her way to make it the best experience for you. I wish I could have spent a lot more time here!
The jacuzzi bath and ambiance of the entire facility is excellent! I also love that the different areas create a spa journey of relaxation. My least favorite part was that I didn’t get to spend the ENTIRE day here! I would book again here in a heartbeat. Definitely a must see for locals and tourists!
Peaceful location, relaxing environment. I give it a 10!
Had an excellent experience here at Creative Chakra! Julie is a wonderfully attentive and skilled masseuse. The staff were so helpful and friendly, and the facilities are amazing; the ambiance is peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely come back here!
Great communication from both my massage therapist and Sandie! Would definitely recommend and come back!
Personable, kind, and healing! What an awesome experience!
Patrick Henry 8/4/2016
First and foremost I’ve been to a lot of spas, and I know when a staff is attentive and NOT! Sandie was amazing and the service is exceptional! This is not your cookie cutter McDonald’s type of thing, it’s personable, reasonable and most of all Sandie is a sweetheart! Go find out for yourself and see what I mean. Ciao!
Cory A 8/3/2016
I couldn’t be more happy with the recommendation that I received to check out this location. They under charged and over delivered for 3 1/2 hours of service. From the moment we walked in we were immediately overwhelmed with a feeling of bliss. Everyone was friendly and extremely polite. It was a great experience. My wife and I being very new to this and not having the chance to get many breaks, we were extremely pleased. Sandie greeted my wife and I and went into a nice history of the facility and what they offer. She was Great! The infrastructure was surreal and comforting. I think going to a place knowing that it’s authentic to the community and built by a single owner goes a long way. We were not looking for a large commercial facility, but somewhere that real people were grounded and connected to your wellbeing. I would recommend Creative Chakra to more people. It brings a unique ambiance that is well deserving for anyone needing a nice mental hiatus on life.
Great facility, relaxing treatment!
Springer H 5/15/2016
I have been a client for over 9 years, I get consistent quality massages, it is always clean and the staff are always friendly, kind and informative. True healers and great eco friendly products. It is steps from the sand and free parking too. This small business is always improving the facility and I enjoying visiting and seeing all the new additions that is done with passion.
Kristal Fiorentino 5/15/2016 Wonderful! Love the porch and great massages!

It was marvelous, relaxing and great! Everyone was courteous and professional. Keep on doing what you do!
Lyssa G 3/23/2016
My honey and I kept saying we felt as though we had left LA and were on vacation! I spent my birthday here at CCS and it was the best choice I have ever made. It was so private, we literally didn’t see anyone else there during our stay. Both of our therapist were professional and talented (I would know I’m an MT myself). And the owner and staff not only helped us, but guided us step by step from parking to leaving. This was the escape I needed for my bday!
Gretchen D 3/19/2016
Great prices for what you get! They treat couples like royalty.
Jenny J 3/07/2016 I had a really excellent massage. location is perfect, chill atmosphere. arrive early for parking (if you are parking on the street which is free at this beach area) prices are wonderful!

Elizabeth Portillo 11/29/2015
I will definitely be back, this is the first time in ages that I have felt unburdened and my spirits are lifted, excellent bodywork with a sense of peace. I suffer from chronic inflammation and auto immune. I felt my rheumatoid stiffness loosen and pain significantly decreased! I felt very welcomed and cared for in a way that felt truly healing even though it was my first visit

Very relaxing- the atmosphere was beautiful and the mint tea was a nice touch.The massage was very good. I like that I was asked about my pressure preference and explained what was going to take place during the massage before we began. It was pleasant and calm and relaxing. Everything was very clean.

Rebecca Alvarez Los Angles 3/13/2015
Great beach yoga watching the sunset. What a way to visit LA and wonderful, caring people. I did a lay-over from the airport as it is only 10-15 mins away from LAX and I had 4 1/2 hours to use wisely. A great retreat, I spent almost 4 hours, at the tea room, the beach, an excellent massage with a skilled and informative massage therapist and then we finished with the sunset beach yoga. I took some pictures for facebook of course, lovely, special memories. I will make this a regular ocurance as my routine is flying in and out of LA for work every 3 weeks.
Robert Jaffe Los Angeles 11/12/2015
In a way this is a follow-up review. Realizing that I needed help knocking out a stubborn ear/sinus infection I asked Sandie if she could suggest a sacral cranial massage therapist and she set up and appointment with Luna. Next day I came in for a 1.5 hour sacral cranial massage that provided significant relief – not only the pressure in my bead but issues with tension in my neck and shoulder that were affecting my main complaint. To my surprise, the treatment also put me in touch with emotional issues that I’d resisted dealing with and though i felt quite sad, I was grateful for being able to connect with those feelings. Luna also gave me a series of exercises that I’ve begun to do at my place which are helping release tightness and stiffness that I’ve acquired over time. Luna is extremely sensitive to the exact range of appropriate pressure in her work which I greatly appreciate having heard stories of what can happen when a massage therapist lacks that sensitivity. During the session I also had my first ever hot stone massage and just thinking about it makes me “Ahhhhhh!” and crave another one. Luna is a superb therapist and I highly recommend her and look forward to another session. Thank you Sandie for that wonderful suggestion!
Michael M. Whittier, CA 3/4/2015
The massage was very pleasant and refreshing. The ambiance was clean, warm, and with nice music all around. The facility overall is one of the best around. It’s wonderful that they are expanding without increasing prices! Makes us want to come back again and again! The zen of the facility is very calming and relaxing. One suggestion would be that I would really love a cup of hot tea in addition to cold water while in the Jacuzzi. I loved it when Ting massaged my arms and finished with finger tips. It helps me relieve my tension. I love that everyone checked up on us. I love the couch with all the pillows, great relaxation area. Five stars! I’ll be back.
Denise B. Los Angeles 2/27/2014
My therapist Michael was fantastic. His strokes were smooth and complete and his pressure was firm and even without going too deep. my boyfriend’s massage therapist was Dana and he was making happy sounds the whole time so I think he was satisfied.
Dana who was helpful in guiding us to our next step after massage to the aromatherapy where we enjoyed water and allowed the steam to surround with aromatic bliss. It never got too uncomfortably hot in there but just the right temperature and for just the right amount of time, which was up to us to gauge when we felt complete. When we decided to move on from aromatherapy room, we went back to the main room to wrap up our evening package with facials by Sandie. Sandie uses all her own Creative Chakra products and they were quite yummy smelling and mostly natural ingredients.
All in all, It was a very special, romantic experience I would highly recommend to my friends. Check out all the package options on the website creativechakra.com
Roger M. Marina Del Rey 3/8/2013
I’m normally only interested in deep tissue as I have been an Athelete most of my life but the Chakra massage I received at the Creative Chakra Spa set a whole new standard for me! The Chakra Massage was delightful! It was the perfect combination of body work ,hot stones & energy work and they even have their own freshly made chakra oils. Not only was I relaxed at the end but I felt like my whole system was rejuvenated. I had a deep sense of calmness in my body ; a clarity in my brain. I felt like my whole body was communicating again! I highly recommend this treatment! Its worth every penny and more! Dana my therapist was excellent and the spa itself was so relaxing! I will be doing this again soon and this definitely part of my regular health routine!
Stephanie B. New York, NY 8/8/2014
I visited Creative Chakra Spa a few weeks ago while vacationing in Venice. I am a fairly experienced spa customer and I’m not easily impressed, or easily fooled. I can say with confidence that the owner, Sandie, is very invested in creating thoughtfully harmonized treatment experiences for her customers. Her staff members are knowledgable and professional. I would definitely return.
Sonia B. Valley Village, CA 12/7/2014
I remember going through major trauma with my face as I was having some skin issues and I never trust anyone with my face…never! I spoke with Sandie about my concerns and she assured me that I was in good hands with the esthetician..and she was right…she worked her magic on my face. I was very pleased and I also purchased one of Creative Chakra’s skin tonics made with Sandie’s formula. My face felt fantastic as I continuously saw improvements. I have had an incredible massage there as well and the mud wrap which was exquisite! The atmosphere is comfortable, clean not at all stuffy, for me its perfect. Its like having the spa experience in my home. The other cool thing is that you are right by the beach and you can sit on the patio out front and experience the ocean breeze and view the ocean. Creative Chackra Spa also has a fabulous private patio with cozy seating and a fireplace for those chilly nights. I have been to Sandie’s little hidden treasure several times and that’s only because I have had such great experiences there. I highly recommend it! Its worth every penny…and I almost forgot…they have a really nice variety of teas blended by Sandie! I seldom write reviews but this little spot is worth mentioning.
Trina K. Los Angeles 12/19/2014
I just had a fabulous chakra massage with hot stones . I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. The location on the Marina peninsula is like a hidden oasis. The decor along with private outdoor patio sets the tone for rest and relaxation. The staff are great and I loved the chakra oils which are for sale. I had the owner make special blends for me which will be Christmas gifts I know my friends will love.
I guess there is a reason why this secluded SOA has been in business for over 12 years. This gem is one you need to experience.
