Chelsea Redwood

My name is Chelsea Redwood. I am the owner creator of Altitudes. I am certified in over 18 modalities and have completed 3 massage degrees. My goal has been to provide the most effective treatments in all that we do. Having been a lifetime athlete, OCD’er and over achiever means everything is a little bit more comfortable and beneficial for you here at Altitudes.

Our therapists are all incredible. Each therapist is particualrly better at the things they enjoy, but great at everything.  When you call just tell us what your goal is so we can put you with the best one for you.

In 2016 we won the Luxe Spa ‘Best Massage Therapists’ and ‘Couples Package’, and in 2017 we won it again for all of that, as well as ‘Best Spa’. In 2017 we also just won the ‘Best in Big Bear’ voted by locals, visitors and business owners. Winning for all of San Bernardino County is big because it is the biggest county in California. I’m so happy those who haven’t been in yet will get a chance to hear about, “the best experience the mountain has to offer”.
