Frequently Asked Questions
Why are Creative Chakra Massages different?
We specialize in luxurious yet healing therapeutic massages. For instance, when we do deep tissue massage we have ways of penetrating deep within the muscle groups without causing pain or minimizing your pampering and relaxing experience.
Why choose a Holistic Spa?
We offer multi-modal services for relaxation and detox. Hot saunas help flush out toxins from the skin by sweating. Detox body wraps with special mud or herbal body wraps are not only a great way to cleanse the body, but will also help to calm the mind and reduce stress. We value, nurture and support the WHOLE person, Body, Mind and Spirit.

Why are we different from other Spas?
You notice right away this is no chain-store spa, no cookie cutter spa. We are a retreat at the beach, nestled on a quiet walk street. Birds sing and ocean breezes blow through palm trees. Upon entering the reception smells of aromatherapy tantalize and delight.

Incorporating just a few of these proven methods into your lifestyle can bring about radical changes in your life.

To heal the sick: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
About Chakra Massages ~
Very popular. The concept of chakra's may seem a little too esotericto some but knowledge of chakra's can actually be very practical. A client at Creative Chakra will be asked about certain areas they want to strengthen in their lives i.e. financial security, love, inner wisdom etc. For instance, a busy CPA after tax season will want to work on the root chakra and may feel they want to remember romance in their life, and need to find the time and motivation to fulfill their dreams. We at Creative Chakra will recommend the root chakra, the heart chakra and the third chakra, during the Chakra Massage. The Therapist customizes the massage with these concepts in mind. Also, Creative Chakra has specially blended aromatherapy oils for these charkas that can also be purchased to take home. This massage brings fourth all the creativity and skills of the therapists so they are fully engaged in the treatment.
What are the advantages of doing a Semi-Private Yoga Class ~
This is like having an affordable, private Yoga class, as you get a lot of hands on attention, adjustments and instruction. In typical yoga classes in LA you can't always see the teacher and you begin copying the person in front of you. You might not even hear the instructor sometimes, let alone get any hands on adjustments and instruction. Our yoga studio is inviting and beautiful. Gorgeous artwork adorns the walls, with ocean breezes wafting through. There is no white noise since we're so close to the beach. You really seem to get in touch with the spirit within you. Classes are generally between 3-9 people. In some instances at the owner's discretion you may use the Infrared sauna, at no extra cost.
About our products ~
Creative Chakra Aromatherapy Originals are created using only natural food grade sugars, salts & nutrients from the earth that have strengthening, anti-viral, anti-fungal, antiseptic properties that also preserve these simple, exquisite spa treats with bouquets of organic aromatherapy blends. We use our own products in all treatments apart from facials where we use Epicuren.
What to expect upon arrival at Creative Chakra Spa ~
As you walk along the terrace towards the ocean you will see bright red umberellas ~ that is our tea room and reception. There are several ways to enter Creative Chakra, as we have several offices. If the door is closed over, don't worry we are here! We are probably preparing your suite or taking care of our clients in the garden. So take a seat on the swing or ring the bell (by the Buddha statue) or call us from your cell phone. We will be there in minutes to greet you.
What to do after your treatment ~
We build relaxation time into all treatments so if you'd like to take a sauna, private hydrotherapy or steam please let us know. We encourage you to relax on the Lanai and enjoy our library of books, meditate in the garden or just sip on your complimentary herbal tea.
Why it that Creative Chakra does lots of educational, inspirational seminars ~
Education is a major element of healing, sharing knowledge, changing your belief system to open your innate wisdom in your body and mind. If you are looking for a space to hold an event we would love to hear from you.
Is it true that Creative Chakra has the closest proximity to the ocean than any independent spa ~
Yes! This is true of the California coastline, hotels however are directly on the beach and that is beautiful. There are a lot of things happening in hotels, much activity and energy. Here, it is only you and the ocean and the therapist, a very quiet retreat for the mind and soul.
Can you stay overnight ~
Yes, you can. We have a partnership with penthouse luxury accomodations above the spa, think of it as a vacation rental where you can incorporate a beach retreat with private accommodations and also therapeutic spa treatments. Situated high above the Pacific Ocean along some of the broadest beaches in California, the Pacific Penthouse is a luxurious, 3 bedroom/3 bathroom townhouse just 100 yards from the beach. The penthouse is within easy walking distance to Washington Square where you will find some of the best restaurants in Venice Beach and the Marina.
We coined the term, we have the perfect space for spa parties including limousine, catering, fun sexy dance class or a gentle yoga class. Plus we love having the spa full of excited joyful women!
