I love getting massages, but hate paying $70 to $85 an hour for them. A one-hour massage at Healing Hands Wellness & Massage Center on Larchmont Bl. is $55, and only $80 for a 90-minute massage. I?m always confident that I?ll get the deep, therapeutic massage I?m craving. Also, if I call the day before or walk in without an appointment, I know I can probably get a great massage from anyone on their professional staff.
The walls seem a little thin at times (some ambient sounds) but, the fact that I can shower if I want before or after my massage, makes up for that. Street parking is usually available, but there?s also free parking in the rear. I find Healing Hands a reliable source for a deep massage that relaxes and energizes me, at a reasonable cost ? which is a Four Star experience.

Not only did my masseuse instill a painful kink in my neck that wont go away, but the customer service was NOT good and the room was dingy. I dont know about every therapist there, but my personal experience was a huge thumbs down... Just being honest.

The massage I got here today was the WORST I've ever had. The male therapist was inappropriately touchy-feely with unprofessional sheet draping, strange comments and an overall sense of icky. He smelled like cigarette smoke and, on top of everything, gave a terrible massage (I can lightly rub lotion on myself for free, thank you). I wanted to leave early but was too embarrassed to speak up.
I've never reviewed anything on Yelp before but felt the need to say something after this experience. I have been to Healing Hands (both locations) multiple times and the massages are hit or miss but since the price is low, I always return. Never again.

I went to the Chiro there once. He seemed like a good guy. But he worked with a little clicky thing so I was disappointed. I didn't get an adjustment as I imagined. I had a massage from Naomi. It was beyond light pressure.

Tamara Zummallen is more than an acupuncturist, she's a healer. I have gotten acupuncture several times over the years with various professionals and she stands at the tippy top with her skillful hands, knowledge and sweetness. Healing Hands on larchmount is also a peaceful environment to receive your healings.....If you can splurge I def recommend doing her in home special, she comes to you, acupuncture and massage....it will make you purrrr all day long. LOVE Tamara!

There are two locations one on Crescent Heights and one on larchmont.
Crescent Heights is generally very good, ive had many more good massages then bad.
The staff is friendly and its quiet.
I suggest if you are planning on going to one of their locations pick Crescent Heights .
I booked an apt at the larchmont location. It was loud, the staff was indifferent and i received the WORST massage of my life.
It felt like she was poking me with one finger the whole time, by the time i left i was so irritated it was a total waste of my time and money.
If i wanted to get poked or irritated by a stranger i will take the bus in LA at least its only $1.25

I love Healing Hands and try to get Meredith. She has a 6th sense about what is going on with me. I think to is the best hour of my week and feel like a new person afterwards.

This was my first massage from Healing Hands but it definitely won't be the last! It was the perfect combination of swedish and deep tissue and left me feeling amazing, and in a dreamlike state. I really appreciated that my masseuse Jennifer asked me what my preferences were, which never happens elsewhere. Anywhere else you pay for one type of massage and that's that. I highly recommend Healing Hands for anyone in need of serious stress relief! Thanks Jennifer!

This is one of the very few massage places that have more than a couple talented masseurs/masseusses.
Highly Recommended. Tony, Craig, Jennifer, Brett are all awesome. Have never had a problem getting an appt. Never waited - appts are always on time and everything is clean and relaxing.

I asked the receptionist for someone who would do an excellent 90 minute focussed deep tissue on my upper back. When I say deep tissue, I want deep tissue. My guy had some weird technique that I've never experienced. I've had many massages, all different types, and this was just awkward. I really feel so disappointed for the experience. His touch was too light, he wasn't intuitive, and he didn't seem confident. What bummer. My back still hurts and I feel like I wasted my money and time. I'm going to contact the place directly with this feedback and have them recommend someone else to me. The place is really nice and I like the affordability, but I really didn't enjoy the massage. Very, very frustrating.
Hip Hip Hooray!!!! Not only is this my favorite place to get massage, I just called to schedule my appointment and to my surprise I was told Ellisa is back !!!!! She is awesome. What a fabulous way to start my 4 day weekend. :)
As a massage therapist, I've always felt really thankful for such a great place -- both locations are so convenient, the therapists are top-rate, and the price can't be beat. I have just begun receiving Rolfing sessions (a specific *very* deep tissue technique to re-align the body structurally) from Jon, and I can't stop talking about it. My wrist and forearms have never been so open, my legs are super happy during yoga practice now, and my feet have never felt better. My whole body feels alive. I highly recommend it, though it's pretty intense and not for the faint of heart. It's awesome!

I went to Healing Hands because of all the glowing reviews I read online. I was actually really excited for my treatment as I had been needing to get a massage for quite a while. As soon as my therapist (Adam) put his hands on me, I couldn't wait for the massage to be over. He basically massaged me with one hand, mostly what felt like his thumb, the whole time. He spent little time on my back and from my previous massage axperiences the back tends to be focused on. It just seemed like he was putting little effort into my massage the entire time. I help myself back from actually getting up and walking out in the middle of the massage. On top of the horrible massage, the room they put me in was so noisy. It was next to the front desk so the whole time I could hear the phone ringing and people walking around. Not relaxing at all. And to top it off, when my massage was over and I left the room, there was no one to be found...not my therapist to say thank you, not a receptionist, no one. I walked out of there feeling like I wasted my time and money and still in need of a good massage.

After a long day at work and an aching back I drove over the Healing Hands on W. 3rd St. The atmosphere is very quaint and relaxing. I booked a hour massage and got Aaron as my massage therapist. It was the best massage I've had in a long time. I left feeling totally rejuvenated and relaxed. I would definitely go back and ask for Aaron again.

Healing Hands is a great place to relax and wind down, and one therapist who goes the extra mile is Vann, who specializes in deep tissue and Swedish massage. I'm very particular - and get stressed out easily from work sometimes - but Vann was so welcoming and professional; he truly listened to my needs. His touch was incredibly therapeutic and intuitive, so needless to say I found a great therapist who helped me relax and release tension. Plus he uses aromatherapy in his sessions, which helped relived my allergies. Bonus! Great location on 3rd ST & Crescent Hts!
