Amazing Place, amazing massage, amazing experience! I’ve had massage around the world and can accurately say that this was a world class massage!
I was at Big Bear for the weekend and found Chelsea’s spa through Yelp – she was as advertised! I highly recommend the couples massage – an incredible romantic and therapeutic experience! Nothing better than healing your body and your relationship at the same time! Chelsea and Marcella are well trained professionals with a love of massage and healing, and were able to recommend and deliver the perfect massage to me and my significant other!
I had the most incredible deep tissue massage, knots and old injuries that i’d given up hope on – are now gone! Marcella got into places that I didn’t even know existed! Two weeks out and i’m still as limber as ever – I can’t thank you both enough – will be back as soon as possible!
Facility: 10/10 – The facility is a brand new spa, immaculate and luxurious. I’ve been to some very high end establishments and this spa didn’t lack any luster for being on the mountain – truly a surprise. The couples room was perfectly lit, music was therapeutic, tables were a dream.
Professionalism: 10/10 – The knowledge and skill of the staff can’t be understated – Chelsea and Marcella are true gurus and take their craft seriously. They are well trained in virtually all techniques of massage so pick your poison!
Price: 10/10 – Although I find it tacky to talk about price when it comes to therapeutic services like massage, I want to make sure my fellow Yelpers also know they’re getting great value – the couples massage package that we had was $260 for 90 minutes for two (which any experienced massage enthusiast will tell you is a ridiculous price for a professional experience.)
I am an overactive guy with two speeds: On and Off. I regularly compete in surfski races, and am often found flying around on roller blades or a mountain bike, when my boat is not in the water. On a recent Friday, I paddled a borrowed Surfski 10+ miles out into 3 foot chop off Newport Beach, and then drove up to Big Bear Lake to do a little hiking. On Saturday, I did a 10 mile hike up to 10k feet. On Sunday and Monday, I did two more 8+ mile hikes at around 9k feet. Oddly enough, I felt pretty tired, sore, and kinda beat up.
Then I found Altitudes Massage, and treated myself to the best thing I’ve done for me in years!
Chelsea brought her gear to my house and proceeded to reset everything tight, sore, and out of balance, to better than factory specs (I swear I was 20 years younger when she finished)! She has a confident, intuitive touch and a marvelous massage-bedside manner. I felt that she really understood what my body (and spirit) needed, and she coached me with several stretches and exercises that I could do on my own, when we were done.
She is a true Renaissance Woman with a master’s touch, who draws on her exceptional life experiences and training to provide a massage and healing experience that fit me perfectly. I strongly recommend her to anyone – whether they be athletic overachievers, weekend warriors, or anyone ready to remember what it feels like to relaxed, at peace, and whole again. Thank you, Chelsea – you Rock!
