Checked this place out after I saw the groupon deal 1 hour massage for $29.00.
Deal or no Deal– duh deal. I called the place and they said that you don’t need to buy the groupon and just roll in. Make sure you call to make a reservation because they fill up quick up.
I got Angelica, and she was definitely experienced because she worked on the spots that had knots- so ask for her.
Overall great deal and great service, Most def gonna return.
MUST CHECK out- make sure you hook angelica up.

I’m in love with this place! i just came back from this wonderful little facility in a shabby garden grove shopping center not far from disneyland; i found the $29 deal on groupon, but i called in and they said they’re having that deal ongoing (no coupon required)! i’m not sure for how long though- but it’s an absolutely KICK ASS DEAL SO GET ON IT.
this place is the biznis- nice, clean facility; friendly and professional staff; and most importantly- excellent massages. i came to my appointment late, there was no wait, i was served very promptly, and i still got my full 1 hour massage. i unfortunately didn’t get the name of my masseuse; she was younger i think, but she was awesome and kind and had magical hands with the silkiest softest skin. she used a lotion when working on me, but i absolutely loved when she’d touch my feet with her bare hands (LOL is that creepy?) i mean even before applying pressure, her touch was already heavenly…
but when she did apply pressure? fuugitaboutit~ i told her i like “a fair amount of pressure”, and she definitely did not skimp just because i was a little asian girl. it actually hurt a LOT at first- but it wasn’t her fault- i was just THAT sore without even knowing it. she was extremely skilled and worked out knots i didn’t even know i had, and asked me what areas i’d like extra attention on and worked accordingly (which were my mid back, neck, and shoulders), while still sufficiently working on my arms, thighs, calves, feet, and lower back. the full hour was utilized well, but it definitely goes by fast when you have 10,000 knots to kneed out like i do lol. oh it hurts so good, said the masochist~
overall- they are incredible and i highly recommend them. sosososoooooo excited to come back again- and they’re even doing a little sweepstakes where they’re giving away five 1 hour long massage gift certificates every 3 months!

The massage from Angelica was seriously great. A very expertly done, no frills, feel-better-right-away massage. She spent the entire hour PLUS 10 minutes because she did a cold lazer treatment on my shoulders and lower back. No rushing or cutting corners in any way. My only complaints are the room was kind of cold and the walls were pretty thin. Even with the relaxing CD on I could hear the conversations going on intermittently between some co-workers. No biggie, next time I’ll just ask to turn the heat up a bit and bring my earbuds and iPod (or move toa room further in back, mine was rather close to the front come to think of it)
The adjustment with Dr. Tran was great. He did one before the massage as well as after (neck, middle and lower back, hands and feet) and also applied some icy hot-type patches to my lower back to help with some of the pain I’ve been having.
I’ll be back here for sure! Thanks guys (and gals)!

I’ve been dying for a massage for a while now and this place popped up on Groupon Now! – $29 for an hour massage. It was a good deal so I gave the place a try. The exterior of the building is nothing special, but the interior is lovely. The front office staff were really friendly. I didn’t have to wait too long before Cherie (sp?) came out to get me. The massage room itself is pretty sparse, nothing fancy, but this isn’t a spa so that’s understandable. I changed out of my clothes, got on the table, and to my surprise got one of the best massages I’ve had in a long while. One thing I found strange was Cherie never asked me if I wanted her to concentrate on any particular spots nor did she check with me if the pressure was okay. It all worked out fine because the massage was great & she hit
all the spots at the right pressure – I just thought it was weird she didn’t ask beforehand. Then again maybe she can just tell? Also, the A/C in the room was on kind of high so the room was pretty chilly. Overall, it was great experience, though. The massage was well worth the price I paid & I tipped heavily. I’d definitely go back if it showed up on Groupon again

This place is great! Wow! Two visits in and already my back and neck feel so much better. They whole staff is friendly and knowledgable. The massage therapist have hands of gold! The place is clean and inviting. Plus they worked with my crappy insurance to help me barely pay anything! If you want a place to get healthy… Go to Harbor Spine and wellness!

The best care ever from Dr. Tran to the staff, including the front desk and especially Sherry the masseuse. It is incredible the way I feel every time I get out of there.

I purchased a Groupon Now! for a 60 minute massage at Harbor Spine & Wellness. Reviews elsewhere on the internet were very good, and the price really couldn’t be beat. I had finished up two classes ahead of schedule, so I figured this would be a nice way to reward myself.
Oh. Mygosh. This was the BEST massage I have EVER had.
I have gotten my fair share of professional massages (both expensive and cheap) at spas, massage parlors, fancy gyms, etc. They ranged from being OK to pretty useless. I have had huge knots in my shoulder area for as long as I can remember, but none of my massages have ever REALLY gotten rid of the knots. Most masseuses wouldn’t even try. They would just go through their 60 minute or 90 minute long routine, not really atune to how MY muscles were, and within a day (or even hours after my massage) I would acutely feel my shoulders tightening up again. Why did I keep getting massages? Because for the hour or so they were working on me, it (usually) felt pretty good.
Cherie was different. She started her routine and immediately asked me how long I’ve had the knots in my shoulder. I was surprised because nobody had ever asked me before. I told her that I couldn’t really remember. She mentioned that the knots in my left shoulder were so tight that it was making the height of my shoulder’s uneven. Again I was surprised because, while six or so years ago I had noticed my shoulders weren’t straight, I had assumed it was just the way I was built.
Forty or so minutes later (after having masterfully gone over over the rest of my body) she started focusing on my shoulders. Patiently, she worked out all but one of my knots, which she couldn’t finish simply because she ran out of time. (Keep in mind that I’d had these knots for many many years and they were HUGE.) The process wasn’t painful. The end result was wonderful: MY SHOULDERS ARE EVEN NOW. Two days later and I’m STILL feeling relaxed and soft. It’s amazing. Absolutely. Amazing.
That alone is worth 5 stars to me. But it gets better because the experience surrounding my massage was also wonderful.
While the exterior of the building isn’t much to look at, the interior was quite nice. They had coffee, water, and snacks available for clients. They also had one of the most beautiful fish tanks I have ever seen in the waiting area (it’s not huge, but it’s decorated with natural vegetation and the fish are simply mesmerizing). The staff was very friendly and nice, both on the phone and in person. The entire facility was extremely clean. The massage room was simple but beautiful.
Their regular prices are a little bit pricey for me (but not unusually so for a professional massage), but I’m already reworking my budget to try and get in here once a month. They also offer chiropractic services, courtesy of the owner, which I’d like to try some time. The only thing that sounds better than an amazing massage is an amazing massage PLUS a back readjustment. Eeeeeee I’m super excited just thinking about it!
Bottom line is this place (and Cherie!) is fantastic. I got, by far, the best massage of my life here and I am in MUCH better condition/spirits because of it!

I play hockey and sometimes my back gets pretty messed up from games. I have gone here a few times for massage and they have totally helped me out with the back pain.

Ahhhh is all I have to say! Place didn’t look exceptional from the outside, I was used to a high end day spa at the local hotel but oh was I wrong! I save money and am happy with the services. The place is very nice on the inside and the staff is wonderful, dont let the location in a center dissuade you they will make sure you leave saying “ahhh” and feeling well balanced again.

They treat you very good here. I come here every so often for adjustments when my back is in pain from either heavy lifting or just sleeping the wrong way. Dr Tran will make sure you are well taken care of.

I am very happy with my massage and acupuncture treatments at Harbor Spine. Wish I could go more often but I am always left with peace and relaxation after a treatment. After a slip and fall my back was in knots and now I feel fantastic!

Dr Tran is professional, caring, and talented. I was concerned about the ability to truly help my back with chiropractic and BOY was a wrong. His staff is always pleasant and helpful. I should have listened to my grandmother a long time ago =)

Not only was the staff at this facility professional, but they were friendly and understanding as well. My boyfriend and I were T-boned in a car accident back in January 2010. We began chiropractic treatment and I also started massage therapy. To be honest, both of us were somewhat skeptic to chiropractic practices, however after the very first session we could tell a difference. Over the following 3 months, Dr. Tran had us feeling 100 times better. Rosa, the massage therapist also did wonders for my back. I would recommend this place to anybody. I know and do plan on getting continuing treatment in the future. They are the real deal.
