J & J Foot Care & Body Massage is rated 4.8 out of 5 stars, based on 120 reviews!
Jared did a fabulous body and foot massage. I had to tell that he would not be able to fix me in one session. Will go back again very soon!
Wow! What a great experience we had at J&J today!
Not being experienced we felt a little unsure of what to expect, but we were received warmly, told how to get ready and received a professional massage, head to toe!
Strong hand relieved tensions and sores, and hot stones with oil relaxed ! I will definitely return!
This place is great! Came here today for my birthday...because you gotta treat yo self. Walked in and was pleased with how clean and peaceful it was inside. Kevin is a pro and gave me a great foot and full body massage. I left there feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I'll definitely be back :)
Love this place! Very affordable & you get a great body massage included with the foot massage. Every person here is great.
What a cute little massage parlor tucked away in between a Japanese and Mexican restaurant! There's a small little alleyway you can turn into that will take you to a small parking lot in the back.
Right when you walk into the massage parlor, you're literally walking into the massage room itself. Other spots I've been to are tucked further into the building. I wasn't too sore on my body but I've been overdue for a foot massage. This place offers the 40 minute foot massage combo which includes, foot, face, and neck for only $20! Once you're ready, the masseuse will lead you to a couch to lay down and your foot is dangling off the edge into a bucket of warm water. Don't be afraid to tell them if the water is too hot!
Like Ashlee M's review, I spotted the huge bottles of Suave lotion. Personally, I would recommend Jergens or St. Ives. Those lotions smell a lot nicer but I think they were opting for a non-scented one. First, my masseuse added some to my face. Mind you, I naturally have oily skin so extra moisturizer made me look like a frypan was just heavily greased with PAM spray. Unfortunately, my masseuse wiped half of my eyebrow makeup away so I just looked silly walking out with half done eyebrows. But it was my fault for even applying it that morning! Now lets talk about the massage itself.
HEAD: My head, shoulders, and back are probably the most sensitive parts when it comes to massages. Be forewarned that if your masseuse is adding too much pressure, tell them or else they're gonna be kneading you like bread dough! This was probably my least favorite part.
ARMS: Now we're getting good! My masseuse made sure to dig into my arms and get in between my fingers. He has added pressure to the palms of my hands which definitely hit the tired spots I didn't know I had!
FOOT: AH THE GOOD STUFF. I don't know about you, but my feet is always tired. I'm talking about my toes, balls of my feet and the middle of my foot underneath (between the balls and heel). He pumped a lot of lotion into the foot portion so my feet were getting hot with all the pulling, kneading and tugging. The only thing missing here was pulling and cracking my toes but I'm not sure if they're allowed to do that?
At the end, my masseuse grabbed a really hot towel (I'm talking burning) and wiped the lotion off of my feet.
Overall, my masseuse did a great job and he even got me a cup of water at the end of my massage which was very sweet of him. I'm glad that this place was a hit!
I love this place! I go here once every two weeks for a 60 minute massage and they always do a great job.
Tony is one of the best. I like to go to him when I get tension headaches because he's able to get rid of it and make me feel more relaxed.
This place is wonderful! Incredibly affordable and the guy who helped me worked really hard to find my problem areas and worked them out. So happy! I got into a car accident recently and my neck and shoulders have been a real problem for me. They worked it out! Ive been seeing a doctor for the tightness and pain and this is the only thing that's helped. Will definitely be a repeat customer!
Best massage around. I've been to a few in the area, and this takes the cake. They welcome walk-ins. It was very clean, and the price was great. They were very nice, as well. Can't wait until my next visit.
This is hands down the best massage spot in Pasadena. And Ive been to so many. One hour of deep tissue massage with hot stones elsewhere can cost up to 150 bucks. Here it's only 40 and it's SO GOOD! The therapist are very attentive to your areas of discomfort. And the ladies go above and beyond In removing the knots in sore muscles. I always leave here 100% happy with every massage.
Parking is in the rear of the building and I usually enter through the back door! Just gotta watch your step as there are steps down. ;)
Had a one hour oil massage with Alice. Great deep massage technique and strong hands .Best ever. Very friendly staff. Owner was very nice.I highly reccomend this place.
I went in as a walk-in. I called ten minutes before arrival asking if two people can get foot massage and then went in. It looked like they have many masseuse ready to accept walk-ins.
Ample parking behind the shop, so very convenient.
I got the $25 (foot and 15min body) massage. I initially went in for only foot massage but got the same thing my friend wanted. The body massage was so good I am glad i got it. Again, the massage was really good. Perfect pressure and the masseuse checked with me whether the pressure was okay. I really enjoyed the foot scrub and the hot towel. After the massage was done, the masseuse actually had sweat all over his face from all the hard work.
Unlike the review, it was really quiet. It was more than half full but it was silent and the masseuse didn't talk to each other. The ambiance was better than the photos in Yelp.
But why the 4 star?
My male masseuse must be a smoker. I'm not. So when he gave me head, neck and shoulder massage, I could smell the cigarette/smoke from his hands/fingers. it was unpleasant. Once he was working on my feet, I couldn't smell it so it got better. But even after the massage, I couldn't wait to go home and wash the cigarette smell off of me. I will still go back- but perhaps just ask him to wash his hands to get rid of the smell.
I have been coming to J & J Foot Care for YEARS. My favorite masseuse is Jeri (even though sometimes his pressure is too intense for me). Jeri has magic hands and you feel really light every time after getting a massage from him. Of course, you have to bear through the pain during the session.
What I enjoy about the staff here is that, even though you may forget to tell them where your muscles are tense or the spot that has been bothering you, they find it anyway! And they always spend more time working on those knots, which I really appreciate.
Honestly, even if the price goes up, I would still come back. And if they ever move, I would totally follow them. They're THAT good.
Wonderful Hot stone massage by Helen. 90 minutes combo in private room for $50. LOVED IT!!! Friendly staff...check it out!
Could this place be any better? $25 gets you an utterly relaxing massage! Forget spas! They never work on your calves, thighs or arms like this. Now I'm relaxed!

Go Now. THANK YOU !!!
Am so incredibly thankful for Tony and his amazing, hard work every time we come by.
We can't believe it took us this long to discover this massage place! We love it so much!
We've probably been to over 20+ massage places in our lifetime and this place is the ultimate for us.
So incredibly affordable (average is $25/hour for a foot massage with some body massage as well) and we come out feeling like brand new people. I walk a ton for work and my feet/legs are often aching after a long work week. Totally rejuvenated after coming here every time.
We're not ones to take our massages lightly and truly appreciate Tony (and all the staff here) so much.
They are all so kind and the massages they give are the BEST!!!
We just went by Sunday but are going again today, Wednesday! Thank you Tony and all associates!!!!
We FOOT MASSAGE $25/ hr include foot and 15 minutes body massage and free salt scrub. Body massage $40 /hr free hot stones.couple body massage $35 each please come to try. Thank you!
Excellent place. I was on a business trip and was tired. Tried this place for an hour and i am beyond impressed with the services provided. They know how to work on you. Just let them know the pressure you can handle and they will do the rest. Will use them again when I am back.
I am a dog walker by trade so obviously am hard on my feet! I walk an avg. of 10-12 miles daily. My pigs were really hurting so I googled foot massage close to me. I had less than an hour between walks so I just popped in to see if I could get some relief. I don't think 30 minutes is their usual fare but they accommodated me with pleasure. Then the pleasure was all mine!!! Oh My Goodness I will be making this a bi-weekly habit. Only $15 for heaven (plus tip because you WILL want to tip these feet savers!). 1 hour only $20!!
For a standard foot massage with water, this is a fantastic place. You also get the nice chair and full over the clothes massage as well. I go often for the foot massage and recently I have started going for the full body massage. I was skeptical at first but not any more. No, this person isn't trained in 12 different types of massages and if you have an specific knee/ back/ etc injury and you are hoping to get special treatment for them you may need to head back to the Chiro and see where they can recommend. But for a honest, inexpensive, deep tissue massage I will not go anywhere else. I usually ask for a women and to my knowledge there are only 2 maybe 3 women there and each one is great. I would recommend this place over massage envy any day, also you don't get a lot of chat with your massage they way you do at massage envy or other more western places. They owner is lovely and the facilities are clean and comfortable.
Having tried both foot and full body massage, I can finally say I like this place and will become regular.
- All the therapists seem very easy going, very efficient on the phone
- One of the best 90 min full body massages I've ever had, my therapist did everything from hot stone to a simple foot rub
- UNBEATABLE price, I seriously feel bad so I always give a big tip. $70 for 90 full body and $20 for foot massage
- I'd say I don't really get the foot massage, I came in for a foot massage and got 10 min of foot soak and 15 mins of foot massage then 30 min of body massage. Not mad about the body massage, just wish foot massage has more ,well "foot massage"
- I was hesitating at first coming here because the sketchy look of this place, 6 massage bed in the lobby, and only 5 individual rooms, I understand they are trying to save space but i don't know how I feel about getting massage with 5 other people
Overall, they should change the name to J&J Body Massage
Wow! Just finished up with TONY and man did he go to work! Im a hairstylist so I carry alot of tension in my shoulders. Tony worked out alot of that tension, hes got really strong hands so just be aware and know that he is going to be a little rough. For me, thats a good thing! I needed that tenion worked out, my shoulders were in such bad shape. I feel so much relief! I'll definitely be back for him!
(I did the 60 minute full body for $20)
The cleanest spa I've gone to at this price????
Fantastic massage and friendly, professional service. I got the 70 minute $30 foot and body massage. Incredible value. Be sure to leave a good tip. I left a $20 tip as I felt the massage was definitely worth it. I'll be back!
HAPPY MOTHER DAYS. We are POMORTION . You BUY FIVE GET ONE FREE.BUY TEN GET TWO FREE. Thank you very much !
I ran into the owner of this place passing out business cards in a grocery store parking lot. I talked to him about the services and pricing they offer. I figured why not give it a shot since it's close to home and I usually go to San Gabriel to get a massage.
There are 6 beds/ chairs here, so it's a nice and relaxing place. I chose the 1 hour massage with 45 minutes on the feet and 15 minutes for the rest of the body for $20.00. That's right, $20! The ratio ended up being about 35 minutes on the feet and 25 on the rest of the body. There are longer and varied sessions available for differing prices.
I left feeling like a million bucks! I don't need an uppity massage place that has candles and oils, I just want to feel good, and J&J delivered.
Amazing! I walk in tense and leave feeling like a bowl of jelly. All for 20 bucks!!!!
I was in desperate need of a massage. A friend had recommended one in San Gabriel so I decided to make the drive during my lunch hour but then I remembered seeing a sign for a $19 foot massage off of Colorado, only 5 min away from my work.
I was a little skeptical going somewhere I had not done my yelp research on. I entered through the back door and was pleasantly surprised how net and clean everything was. I was greeted right away and was attended within the minute. Since it was lunch hour, the place was pretty much empty.
I got the #1 option $20 for a foot and body combo, It was just what I need. I will be coming back to this place very soon.
BTW, they accept debit cards.
This place is heaven. Vicky is awesome. If you need to relax this place is reasonably priced and heavenly. They are friendly and warm. The place could use some nice decor and a better paint job, but who cares when your eyes are closed half the time anyways. Best foot massage I have ever had and I have been to San Gabriel to numerous places, Heart and Soul in Pasadena, and others.
*****I just down graded because my last two time there were subpar. I had a male who was inexperienced and did not know what he was doing. It was diss appointing since most of my other experiences where so great.
----so I keep going back because it is so convenient and looks like they have expanded the facility. I got a new masseuse named Alex. He was magic. I did the table massage which was clean, relaxing and conservative NOT sketchy at all! He used hot stones which was heavenly! Only downside is you should call ahead because they have gotten busy!
We go to many area spas and I found this one totally by fluke. The card was on the ground and I picked it up, thinking I'd dropped it. We came by a couple of days later after a grueling drive from Norwalk and Los Angeles. I first soaked my feet in a warm tub with awesome nubs on the bottom. The feet stayed soaked for hour while I got re- orchestrated from head to toe. First, he rubbed gently up my abdomen then flawlessly caressed my crown, then temples. From the head he stroke and gently pulled my arms to him and aligned my neck created a sense of trust and peace and I was fearless, for the first time in years. The body is rubbed in all areas, back, buttocks, stomach, and all down the legs. The foot massage was exquisite. I thought I was in the wrong place, this humble abode could Not really Have such amazing talent! But it does.
Doubters beware! Make sure you put the hexes on, you may need them for your wallet that unashamedly wants to overpay! :)
Thank you, dear sirs.
We will so be back!
I went for the $20 60 min massage today and it was well worth it. They are very nice in there and the place was quiet too. Probably because it was a holiday but I loved it. The lady did a wonderful job but I asked her to lighten up a bit on my legs. I'm a little sore but nothing that isn't manageable or extremely painful. Can't wait to go back! Felt like it was longer than 1hr too. She definitely hit every spot possible.
I'm here now. Just had the $20 foot and body massage. Great. One hour. Ended up being about half body and half feet. Amazing. Will definitely be back.
This is one of those instances where the old "you get what you pay for" adage just doesn't quite add up. I always wonder how places like this stay in business!?? FOUR one hour massages here is equivalent to ONE massage at other places that I frequent. It is difficult at best to rationalize going anywhere else. I will do my Yelping-best to describe why.
First off, if you are Meg Ryan's character from "When Harry Met Sally", this is not your place. Most of the therapists do not speak English and the ones who do, speak and understand it minimally. In other words, if you're the type that needs to give a lot of detailed instruction for this kind of service, you'll be frustrated (unless you speak Mandarin).
For everyone else, however...WOW!
I've said it before (see my rub-a-dub-dub list), but honestly, who CARES if the place you get a massage from has froo-froo water or the paint and decor match? Your eyes are closed 98% of the time while you're there. So, don't be fooled by the humble, borderline sketchy exterior/interior.
I've been four times now and though they are all middle-aged Chinese men workin' on ya, there is one woman also and I've experienced three different peeps including the female therapist. They are all excellent. I am once again reminded: the Chinese know a thing or two.
And I've walked out of there all four times feeling like a million bucks (at a tiny fraction of the cost).
Aside from the Sally caveat, also do not go in expecting a Swedish rub down-- they don't know what that is. This is old school, Chinese influenced pressure points/acu-pressure, reflexology-never-blow-a-fan-directly-on-you-while-you're-resting or have the place too cold kind of experience.
Out of the one-hour, they spend approximately 25 minutes on your footsies alone. Your head, shoulders, back, arms/legs get an equal amount of attention with the remaining 35.
Lastly, a 30-minute foot massage is not on the menu but you can ask for it if you have time constraints like I had the second time ($15...SERIOUSLY?).
The only drawback I can think of is that you will be compelled to tip 50% minimum each time to avoid feeling like you are participating in slave labor.
Good relaxing alternative to Master Wong's in San Gabriel. The folks are friendlier and you don't feel as hurried here. They don't engage in endless chatter all around you, giving you a much more professional massage.
Most of the therapists only speak basic English, but pointing should get your point across. Of course being able to speak Mandarin is a big plus. I got the one hour body massage and the masseur applied very good pressure, which I like. Only complaint is that the masseur did not hit certain "spots" that the chiropractors do to relieve the pressure fully. But it is a good deal for $40 on a table. Would recommend the $19.99 deal for most people, it's a combo foot/body massage in a chair.
This is THE BEST HOUR you can have. Mom and I had the 60 minute for $20. It was so good, we were compelled to double down the payment!!!! Looking for a reason to be in the neighborhood and stop in for another treat!
My grandma usually goes to J&J foot care than taking the drive all the way to san gabriel. I tried it out on with my grandma because I've been so stressed with school and work. The owner was really nice and I actually like how they speak enough English that you can understand. Some guy gave me a foot massage and that was exactly what I needed. I didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable. He massaged my lower back and tense shoulders. I'll definitely make another stop here when I'm visiting my grandma again. And come on, its only $20. But guys I suggest tipping them more than just $2. I always give then 25% or more.
A hidden gem! I come here twice a month for a pick-me-up, and I ALWAYS leave feeling relaxed, soothed, and pampered. The people there are kind and professional. First off, it is one large room with six individual couch-chairs. The lighting is dark, and there is calming oriental music playing. You can choose from a variety of different procedures - I always go for the 70 minute foot-and-body combo, which costs only $30! The cheapest procedure is $20, which is a 1 hour foot-and-body combo. I tip $5-$10 every time, because I am always so satisfied at the end. There is convenient parking in the back of the building. These are the reasons J and J is my #1 choice for a massage!
After a long week of heels and deadlines, there are a few options for stress relief. This is my new go to after work on Friday. 30 bucks for 70 minutes of someone taking the time to relieve all the stress that has been built up. They take their time and are very attentive. Ill take a massage here over a cocktail to unwind any day of the week.
I love this place and would recommend it to anyone who's had a stressful day and wants to unwind. It's just a little hole in the wall and you could almost walk by and miss it. But as soon as you walk in, within a minute, they have your feet in a warm tub of water. I went for the first time today and it was a great experience. I actually skipped the foot massage (going to try it next time) and opted for a full body massage. A man massaged me. He was very professional and I felt so comfortable and relaxed. They play nice peaceful music in the background. I ended up tipping him more than 20 percent because it was such a good deal and experience.
My boyfriend and I went with a friend to try this out. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our massages. We paid for the $30 package which is an hour and includes a half hour body massage. They started with a warm foot bath. Then began the massage, which included hand, foot and scalp massages before moving to the full body massage. They applied a firm, deep pressure, which is exactly what we needed. All three of us left extremely relaxed. We were able to call ahead and get an appointment within a half hour. I would recommend calling ahead, just in case they are busy. It's a small place and can fill up quickly. My boyfriend and I will definitely be coming back.
Go here often with my dad to get foot massages, which include the whole body. Really great deal especially with the price being 20 bucks. They aren't too rough but seem to really know how to deliver a good relaxing massage.
When I lived in the OC there was a place similar to J&J that I used to love going to. When I moved to Pasadena I was sad to see it go.
Then I stumbled upon this magical place and my heart swelled with joy.
As part of my new years resolution I've taken up running to get back into shape. While the running has been great it has also left me quite sore. I stopped into J&J after a run one day to get the aches and pains worked out.
Now if you come in here with the expectation of a spa and a spa style massage, you are going to have a bad time. This place is really no frills, although the inside is quite a bit nicer then the outside, and the massage is very deep. There were parts of it I wanted to cry out in pain, but knew that in the end it would be worth it.
For $20 you get a foot and back massage. It is a steal, so make sure you tip really well.
I got my frequent buyer card and know that I will soon have my free massage.
Also people, we are trying to relax when we come hear. Your moaning, talking loudly, and other noise making habits are just not needed.
We went for the first time today and both had good therapists. As others said, professional, efficient, clean, and friendly. Pretty busy tonight. They were turning away people on the phone, so calling first is a good idea. Loved that the therapists were not chirping on their cell phones or with other therapists while working on you. It's a little more expensive than some of the places in San Gabriel, but it's worth it.
20 dollars for a foot massage for an hour long? what a deal!
Called them and booked them for a party of 3 and got it reserved right away. The experience was good and the workers really put a lot of effort into getting all your tense spots. They really dig into your muscles to release your tense areas. The man who massaged me did a great job in general, but i didn't like how he paused my massage and picked up his calls a couple of times. I also feel like they should have turned up the soothing music a little louder. Overall, great massage, nice manager, and good service.
My first time here and I am very happy with the quality and the service. Clean and the massages are wonderful! I felt so good during the massage that I almost fell asleep. This is not a spa-type massage where you are undressed under a sheet. You will be fully clothes and they put a towel on top of you while they massage you. For $20 you get a first rate massage - this I will definitely do again!
very good for the price. 20 bucks for 45 min foot massage and 15 body massage.
I finally found the magical hands that I have been looking for!
My friends and I wanted to get foot massage and she told me good things about this place so we all came together. Parking lot is in the back which is convenience. I love that they open 7 days a week! We called in an hour before and made an appointment for 3 people.
We arrived on time and my first thought of this place is that it's pretty small. It's quiet dark and dim, which is fine. I only saw about 8 chairs the moment I walked in and a counter. The man greeted us right away and he spoke English. I thought that was nice since most of the places I went only speak Chinese and I don't know any Chinese. Each rows contains 2 chairs and there were about 4 rows. My two friends sat together on the first row and I was a loner on the second row.
I got the body massage $20/hour (the first selection on the menu). This is where my magical moment happened. A man named Jerry started off with my head and I was thinking "This man has such nice hands." I told him not to touch my face because I had a full face makeup on, lol. He did everything I asked and he made sure I felt comfortable. After my head, it was my arms/hands, then feet, and then my back/body.
How good were his hands? I farted, that's how good it was. Stop laughing! The place has music on but it's still very quiet in there. When he started to massage my lower back (butt area), he pressed it at one point and I let out a small fart. It was embarrassing but I had no shame and he was professional about it.
When my friends and I walked to my car, one friends said, "Somebody farted!" and another friend said, "You heard it too?!" and I said, "You guys, that was me..." and they laughed so hard.
I had a great time here overall and seriously, get Jerry! I can't wait to come back next time! The location itself isn't the nicest place I've been to but as long as Jerry is there, I'm coming back.
Wow! I was feeling tight as a banjo, so figured I had nothing to lose trying this place. Dragged the spouse along and we both tried the body table work. Sophia was stellar!!! While Sophia and Nina had different styles, both of us left very happy!!! Definitely going back. Soon.
Even though it looks a bit sketchy from the outside, they were professional, efficient, clean, and friendly.
The massage was inexpensive and the therapist was firm but not rough. I will be coming back.
Hot dam I feel good! This place is a bargain, so break open you change jars cause you will probably have enough for a foot and back rub. There are many similar places that offer similar services. Where J&J standout is cleanliness and quality staff. Let's level set here, this is NOT Burke Williams. There is no spa like facilities such as locker rooms, steam rooms, infact the whole facility is one big room. So why do i give this 5 stars, they deliver what they promise on a consistent bases and their facility is clean. Did i mention i feel great!
NOTE: You should probably tip more than 15%.
I go weekly. Great service, technique, and value! Don't forget to grab a stamp card!
Best Chinese foot massage we've had. Very clean and nice staff! We'll definitely start being regulars.
Just walked out of this little hidden gem and feel soooo great. Called for four people and they got us right in. Small but comfortable. Friendly. The young man who worked on me didn't speak much English but that was ok because I don't like to talk during a massage. $20 and I got an amazing foot massage PLUS shoulders legs and back. Yep. $20 plus a tip it was GOOD. I'll definitely be back! SOON.
Straight from heaven. Affordable, which allowed me to give the angel that worked out my back issues a nice tip, and I could tell he was paying special attention to the tightness and complications rather than just doing a run through to fill up the work time. Came here for a back massage in the middle of a midterm studying block. Hours at my desk had me to a point where I could no longer sit up straight. J&J was open late, budget friendly, and gave me real results that allowed me to keep working all night.. Will undoubtedly return.
If you haven't been to thai massage before, come with an open mind. It's brilliant.
This place was amazing. I'm a petite girl, and usually they apply too much pressure on my body to the point that it hurts. The person I had applied just the right amount of pressure. And It was heaven.
Update: now they have 8 chairs!!
We love this place. Great price and very friendly staff.
$10 is a decent tip for a one hour foot massage, and should be considered a base tip. $15 is a good tip for a really good massage. I've seen older Asian women leave $3 tips and it's embarrassing (for them). Don't be them.
The good: they put on gloves before massaging your feet. Clean. Friendly staff
The bad: they have 6 chairs. We were lucky today and didn't have to wait
Tip: call ahead to make appt since they only have 6 chairs
Best place ever! I came here after reading everyone's review. Thanks yelpers for helping my find this place:) I got a 70 minute massage body & feet. After the massage I couldn't even walk because of how relaxed I was. Being a mom of 2 small children is very difficult and you may become extremely tensed. J & J foot care took care of all those knots I had & neck pain. My husband also loved this place. Can't wait to go again.
Good place. Friendly staffs and good price. $10 is a decent tip for sure. One of my favorite foot massage place. Make sure to call for reservation as there are only 6 chairs.
Absolutely fantastic massage. One hour foot massage (I would consider it a full-body massage!) for $20 that will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. Been to quite a few different places and this is one of the best massages I've had in LA.
Awesome!! $20/hr for a "foot massage" which really means full body here. Call in advance because there are only six tables :) the people here are so nice! There are also five massage therapy licenses on the wall which is nice because some Asian foot massage places can get pretty shady and they definitely don't have licenses. The people here give great hard massages, not those light touch massages that don't do anything. This place is clean, quiet, darker, and respectful. They also have stamp cards :). Best place I've been to in SoCal. Highly recommend this place!
it was nice, very relaxing. The man at the front tab led was nice. I don't like how he told me how much to tip. Its like okaayy what if I wasn't Happy? Lol
Love this place! Legit massage! Out of all the reflexology places this is one of my top 2(the other being this spa in Westminster). They let you lay down the whole time while they start on your head, then arms, then legs, and they even do your back! You don't have to take off your clothes like some places make you, but the back massage part it still good! $20 for the body reflexology massage and worth every penny! They even give you yea after! Love this place!
This is the best foot reflexology massage I have had in a long time!!!
But after reading several of the other reviews.....it is clear there is an issue with understanding what foot reflexology is.
It is NOT a muscle relaxation massage.
It is an amazing health benefit that targets acupressure points to improve bodily function. They also address stagnant edema and lymph dranage which are also very powerful tools for health. If you are a toxic bundle it can be painful at times and you have to drink a ton of water after!
If you want a mind escape fluff and puff massage that relaxes you for an hour or two go to a spa....if you want the health benefits, get foot reflexology.....often! It is a form that is best utilized regulary. Hence the lower price.
For the best benefit regular sessions are needed...so it is priced so anyone can get it regularly. If you are looking for a cheap sweedish massage you will be disappointed.
Great spot for a good reflexology massage. They have a frequent customer program buy 9 massages get the 10th free. Great price wonderful service :). I will miss this place
I honestly thought about giving this place a bad review just to scare people away so I wouldn't have to deal with crowds or have to wait. It's that good. In fact, it's amazing. Jerry gave me, hands down, the best massage I've ever had in my life, for $20. I don't even know how to describe how happy I was when I got up. Very friendly staff, very nice environment. No frills. No stupid yuppie fake bs. Just awesome work. I walked past this place on my way to get a burrito and I had an hour to kill so I popped my head in. I wasn't sure what to make of it when I first walked in, but good lord, I will be back as often as I possibly can. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. Do yourself a favor and get yourself in there. You can thank me later. Seriously. Best. Massage. Ever. THANKS JERRY!!!!!!
Glad I went! I have been a fan of reflexology foot massage for years, and my experiences have been hit or miss. I hoped for the best and was not disappointed! Tracy was great and very strong, and she spent time where my body needed it most. Will be back and often!
After working 30 days straight with no day off, I sat in the Whole Foods parking lot in East Pasadena and thought, I REALLY need a massage and I need one NOW. I've tried many of the no frills massage spots in Pasadena and have been highly disappointed. Then I went on Yelp and happened upon this place and decided to give it a go. I called my mom and she happily agreed to join me. I can honestly say that I have found my spot! And for $20 (plus a good tip for the guy) you can't go wrong. Every single time he put pressure on my feet, back, neck and shoulders it had an absolutely purpose. The feet and legs portion of the massage was so relaxing it put both my mom and I to sleep, and the neck and back portion was painful at times, but completely necessary and I feel like a new person today. This will be my new Sunday night ritual!
Ask for Tony! Strong deep tissue and pressure point. Surprised to get $100 value for mere $20 charge. Alex is good as well and no tobacco smells. Success, my goal was to have all the sore muscles worked but had relaxing massage in addition to feeling better. Peaceful and safe setting for those on a budget in East Pasadena.
This was the best massage I have ever gotten. Sam is awesome! I had a 60 minute table massage and I feel amazing, and it was only $40. This is my new favorite spot. I will be coming back!
Such a great deal for such a wonderful massage. Firm pressure and stretching involved. All chairs are in one open room, but I thought it was fine. Cannot wait to go back!
I'm upgrading to 5 stars because I went back today and had another great experience! 2 for 2...yay!! I was able to book a same day appt with ease, the place was quiet & clean & my massage with Tony was amazing.I feel so much better! He immediately recognizes my problems areas and focuses on them. Again if you are looking for a spa experience, a Chinese foot massage is probably not for you. However if you are looking for straight - forward reflexology and massage to relieve pain & realign your body in a decent, clean space you will love this place. The price makes it so affordable you can actually utilize this practice as intended: part of a holistic health program instead of an indulgence 2 times a year.
This place rocks!!!!!!! My family goes there and they love it just as much as I do, the whole staff I want to hug every time. They work very hard at WHAT they do, the OWNER rocks always smiles.
Please don't advertise with yelp biz they overcharge
I recently moved down to Pasadena from SF, and have finally found my go-to massage spot!! Jerry, the owner, is super nice! His wife, sofia, was the one that gave me the massage! She is super awesome! She hit all the right points on my shoulders and feet! It all hurt so good! She told Jerry about how tight my shoulders were after the massage, which I thought was funny. I think thats awesome they tell each other what they noticed in the massage, shows they care about the customers and acknowledge what muscle pain their customers have. I am definitely coming back and telling my friends and husband about J&J massage! The price points are really good too! $40 70 min oil and hot stones is a steal!
We were engaged in a quiet afternoon and wanted to continue a non-eventful afternoon, so I had an idea to try a foot massage. I hopped on Yelp and there it was-J & J Foot Care, I called about 20 minutes ahead to see if they could accommodate 3 people and they said YES!!! Off we went to have our first foot massage experience. Now I must say that we are all regulars for full body massages, but this would be new to us all! Well, it was a hit! This was not only a foot massage, but also addressed your full body for the full 60 minutes!!! What a good idea! Great place, very busy and clean.
The best part is the price of $20!!!!!
Enjoyed our experience, I hope this leads you to enjoy yours too!
I recommened people to visit this place and do the 70 min full body massage for $40 its the best
Excellent!!! I just got the best massage in a longgg time!!! Can't wait to come back!
I love my full body massage including feet! The massage therapist name is SUMMER and she was fabulous!! This was my first time visiting so I didn't know what to expect. The place looked like a typical Chinese foot massage place but it felt clean and comfy. She worked on my shoulders and back since I get pain from sitting on the computer all day. She also used hot rocks to take out the knots which felt soooo good!! Afterwards, I felt much better and muscles were so relaxed. I told her that I will be back weekly because I loved it so much.
I agree with the tip situation since I gave her $8 tip and she said standard tipping is $10! Its annoying when they do that but fine I will give $10 tip every time since it was worth it.
Great new Find! Not so fancy but you get Diamond service with an affordable price. I'm definitely coming back!
I found the right place for a tired body and aching muscles like mine! "Grace" if I'm not mistaken was her name gave me a very good back massage plus hot stones. The service was very good, communication is not a barrier at all if you're greeted with a huge and sincere smile upon entry of their place, nice soft music and clean place. I will come back again! Can't wait to have that massage once more.
I've been in pain for the past several months due to stress. I have been to several different massage therapists, including Massage Envy. Not one place was able to even come close to the massage I got today. I am so happy I found this place! Tony was my therapist and he understood what parts of my neck and back needed the most work. The pressure was just right. The problem I kept running into at other places was that the pressure was too light, and when I asked for more pressure, it was still too light and they did not really seem to know what parts of the body to massage. At this place, you get a great massage for a low price. A 30 minute massage here, is better than several hour massages at massage envy.
Been having knots all over my body . Finally came to check this place out because the pain was becoming unbearable .
I got the 1 hr body massage $40 .. and let me say .. your girl is feeling like a million bucks !!
Thank you to the amazing lady who worked her wonders
I will definitely be returning here
I've been hesitant to write a review because this place is so awesome that I kind of want to keep it my little secret so it doesn't get too overrun with other customers! The $20 "foot" massage is indeed a whole-body massage and it's stupendous--WELL worth the money, AND a decent tip! I cannot believe anyone is complaining about having to tip properly--are they not aware that other massage/spa places charge upward of $60/hour for this kind of care??? I give a $20 tip WITH PLEASURE! ($40 total--still such a bargain.) Jerry is the best--he's strong and caring and knows exactly how to find the spots that need work--even when I myself don't realize I have sore spots. Like my butt--OMG! I went in with a headache recently and he concentrated on my scalp and neck and that headache disappeared and never came back! It's not super fancy, and yes there are other customers nearby who sometimes talk, but I've always found it to be a clean and well-run facility. Thanks J&J--I love you!
Discovered this neighborhood gem thanks to Yelp tonight. I am a frequent customer for Chinese foot massage and was looking for a new regular place....and I think I found it! Now, don't come here if you are looking for fancy place that smells like lavender or if you're looking for superb English speaking customer service. DO come here for good value, simple, no frill full body massage! One hour of time to yourself to take care of your body and get your foot soaked in hot water. Open late and easy walk in, whenever you need it. I will.be back!
Cost/benefit ratio is excellent! I like to find a go-to reflexology place in all of the cities I visit frequently for work. I won't look any further in this area.
I've been coming here for years - owned by a husband and wife team, with staff who've been there for years. It's clean, professional and I always get a good massage.
I've been going to J&J Foot spa for several years, ever since the owner and his wife opened. They really care about doing a good job and hire staff that knows what they're doing. (I'm a violin player with lots of muscle tension and have been getting foot massages for a decade and a half, several times a month, so I know if a masseuse knows what they're doing).
Many of their employees have been there for years, which is always a good sign and it's clean and professional. I usually get the 70 minute foot massage as it allows for more time spent on the back, shoulders and neck.
Been here a couple times now. Received the full body massage the first time which was $35. I decided to try the foot massage for $20 and see the difference. There really isn't much a difference for the price. The $20 massage does cover most if not your full body, head, neck, back, legs and feet. The obvious difference not receiving hot stone and oil or having your own private room for the full body $35 massage. So unless you want the privacy, rocks and extra oil product, just go with the regular famous reflexology service. They have been great and respectful both times and am looking forward to going again.
Hidden gem! Great service after a long day I needed a massage and found this little spot. Doesn't look like much from the street but believe me you'll be surprised at how great the massages are! 40 minute hot stone body massage followed by 30 minute foot massage and it was only $40!! Ask for Abby she is wonderful!!
The best and thorough massage I have ever received. A complete massage from head to toes literally. And the price can't be beat for the professional service. Ask for Sophia... magic hands
Got the 70 minute combo for $30 plus $10 tip. Worth every penny. Excellent massage and very relaxing. If only I could've taken a short nap instead of having to drive home. Actually thinking of going back again later tonight!
I have been having reflexology massages done for years now and decided to try a different location at J&J Massage. I could not have been happier with this pick! My masseuse's name was Tony and he did AMAZING! I will definitely be returning! I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone! I was a little nervous about getting a massage done with being 8 months pregnant but Tony was very careful and made me feel very comfortable. I can't wait to go back to my next appointment because of how FABULOUS everyone was. Thanks, J&J, for providing not only wonderful care but excellent service!
First off, do not come here if you are pretentious or expect a peaceful environment. Traditional Chinese massage doesn't come with that, as most are there just to get the kinks out. This place is simpler than others I've been to before, but no one was in there around lunch time so it was perfect (not too much chit chat, which can be expected from other people coming in).
$20 gets you an hour, and they don't skimp on time. The guy I had was quite gentle, but I was more in the mood for something like that. I could tell if I really wanted him to, he'd dig in.
Would have liked a little more stretching, though.
Points for parking, accessibility, price, and efficiency.
great massage for the price. Alex and Lucy are fantastic and now how to switch up the pressure depending on the body part.
Great massage at a reasonable price. We chose $20 for 45 minutes. The masseuse was really fabulous and I walked out feeling so much better. My back was in knots when I went in.
I have been here several times with my boyfriend to get a massage, they always accommodate our request to have a male and female therapist for us. The staff are very friendly and give a great massage! I always feel so much better when we're done. In my opinion it's the best $20 you can spend.
great place. nice staff. building could have used a little more for ambiance. overall, good experience
Best massage I ever had!!! Tom worked in my shoulders and feet and he was awesome!I will for sure go back!
I've been going to J and J foot care for a couple of years and they are so great. I've gone to other places like Massage Envy and they're never as good as J and J. I like to leave them a big tip because they are so cheap and they are so appreciative. It's definitely the best deal in Pasadena. Highly recommend :)
I took my mom for a massage to J&J last night for a late Mother's Day treat. We did the 1 hour table massages in the one of the private rooms with oil and hot stones for only $35 each + tip! I really appreciate how the masseuses seemed to diagnose our pain. My mom had a really stiff neck and the lady massaging her identified it and spent extra time loosing her knots. My mom raved about it all night! The masseuses here don't just do a standard massage, but really work hard to make sure you feel better. TIPS ALL AROUND!
No one go here so that I can always walk in here! This place is amazing. Is it kind of sketchy looking from the outside? You betcha. Is it a little dingy on the inside? Yes, but not in a disgusting way. Does this place having AMAZING cheap chinese foot massages, you can count on it. I have been five times now, and it's a standing date with my husband where every two weeks we go and get rid of all the kinks in our bodies. I forget my favorite guys name, but he smells like cigarette smoke and watermelon jolly ranchers. It's an oddly comforting smell, which reminds me of China. He is the best, this place is so cheap and they do such a good job. Just remember, tip well. This is not a 20% kind of tip, this is like 50% of the price should be left in tip or more.
What the heaven of pure bliss and joy? $20 for an hour. I must admit it hurt quite a bit when I was getting massaged on my back but I knew it will be over soon and it will be worth the pain. I was so right! Wow I felt like I was floating. The foot massage was more relaxing than the body massage but I wish it were harder. My foot felt much better after the rub but I wish it was more of a kneading kind of massage. I would totally come back. The people here were also very sweet and understanding. Atmosphere was lacking but what do you expect for $20? I wish these people would take down weird lights and creepy massage signs, they really scare my friends. I literally had to force them inside. Everyone enjoyed their massages though so hooray to that!
I would defiantly say that I am a massage connoisseur and only visit the absolute BEST massage locations. That being said:
I have lived in Pasadena all 29 years of my life and have been driving past this place like an IDIOT. J&J Foot Care is UNREAL!
I personally got a full hour massage by DAVID! My friend had Sophia who she said was amazing!
I can NOT believe this was a full hour massage for $20! Their technique was comforting and very direct and firm. I actually FELL asleep. You do keep your clothes on so I recommend wearing work out pants that are loose or capri yoga pants so that way your calves can be worked on. Clothes on did not affect the massage in the least bit.
Soothing music, COMFORTABLE chairs, and clean. The outside may turn you away but don't let it. If you want ambiance and a weak massage go pay $150 somewhere, J&J is for people who want a real massage for a steal of a deal.
I will definitely be back weekly!
This place rocks!!!!!!! My family goes there and they love it just as much as I do, the whole staff I want to hug every time. They work very hard at WHAT they do, the OWNER rocks always smiles.
I had a pinched nerve in my neck for a few days. I was having trouble walking and driving. I came here, and the man who greeted me immediately knew where the problem originated. I got a 75 minute massage therapy session for only 30 dollars. It was great! It was just enough pressure, but not too much. I melted and became very relaxed. Although the pain did not go away immediately, it definitely dissapated. After a few days it was gone, and I felt very healthy again. Completely worth it, very affordable and effective. Clean and relaxing.
Ok, I have been waiting to review this place. I've noticed that with any foot massage business, you have to go a few times before you can actually review. I have been here 5 times now, and I only go to Alex. He is my favorite. He's given me a good massage each time.
1. He doesn't smell like cigarettes.
2. He doesn't just pet me. He really massages the entire time. His massage feels deliberate and purposeful. He just just slap you. He doesn't take long breaks to go get towels.
3. I like to get the 70 min massage because I like more of a back massage. Alex gives a great back massage and really focuses on the tense areas.
4. I've said this before in my other reviews, but I'm so sick of people complaining about idiotically petty things concerning these places. These employees aren't paid the $20/hr you pay (which is already such a deal). Also, don't expect that everyone should understand you and speak perfect English. It's racist. I hate it. I've seen non-Chinese speakers come in here and communicate and ask for things just fine.
I've gotten consistently good, therapeutic, and relaxing massages here. Come in, put on some headphones, and enjoy!
Still going and enjoying. I wish I had purchased the package. They had asked when I had my first massage and I automatically said no because I assumed (wrongly) that it was buy ten get one free like most places. I've read reviews where the package is no longer valid because management/ownership changed so I didn't want to get myself into that mess but this place seems solid and I can easily use five sessions.
Is it my imagination or did they change their communal chairs? It's black leather now with white towels so it looks nice and sleek now.
Anyhow, I'll continue to go to my guy there. He's really good even though he smells like smoke-blah.
This place rocks! I normally don't like men to massage me but this place has great male massage therapist.
I had a 30 minute table massage and Sam got that knot out of my scapula! My friend had work done by Tony the owner and was also extremely pleased!
Not fancy in any way but they get the job done! Tip them well, they really work your stress out.
The location is close and convenient. The masseuse named Alex is good at what he does. I have tried the regular $20 foot massage and the $40 one hour body massage. I thought the body massage spent too much time face down which makes it hard to breathe after awhile. I couldn't wait to flip over. I also wished they would include the feet in the full body massage like they include everything in the "foot massage". Alex used hot stones during the massage which was a nice touch. There is a slight smell of smoke in the hallway and it can get a little noisy in the main room but I would still come here again because the massage techniques are worth it.
I found myself over here with some time to kill, so I stopped in here. I had a foot massage in the room in front. It was very quiet, and relaxing. The guy who did the massage was strong, the massage was five stars. But as a person who does not and has never smoked, the cigarette
smell will dock them a star in my review. To his credit, I watched him scrub his hands with soap and water for probably close to a minute at the wash basin before he started. If the smell does not trouble you go for it. A solid massage on the cheap. I did tip well, that's how I roll.
I have tried NUMEROUS massage places and this is THE BEST! It is quiet, no clocks ticking, clean, and superb!
It is only twenty-dollars, but we all know that is NOT for the massage therapist. Please tip at least $10-$20 so your massage therapist can also live a happy life. It is so worth it even at that price!
Do the right thing, come here for your massage and tip $10 or MORE!
I have been here two times after my initial visit. Both times I had the 39.99 hour massage which is in a private room.
The rooms for these sessions were much larger and nicer than my initial session.
Both of my masseuses were petite women who were actually very strong and had amazing techniques.
I experienced so much relief in my mid-back and shoulders, and these areas were the reason for my visit.
I consider myself an expert on a few random categories of life such as sweet cereal, French fries, oatmeal cookies and vintage metal lunch boxes. I am also an expert at identifying a great massage. Once I find an amazing therapist I become a devoted junkie and only go to that therapist to get my fix. Avy at J n J is my new therapist. She is both strong and intuitive and uses various techniques to achieve an amazingly deep and effective massage. I also love the vibe of the place and always feel very welcome by the owner/ manager who runs the front desk.
they really do good job! that is the best massage place I think .they know what's the right acupoint and really useful for relieve fatigue.
the foot massage only $ 20 an hour .if you are the first time do body massage you can get $10 off. so only $30 you can get a table full body massage .it's so cheap !!
Got a great massage here! Super nice guy who took my appointment and payment! Great massage they really work on you i felt even better after a few days!
Great massage for the price. My family goes here all the time. We usually get the 1hr for 20 bucks. Extremely relaxing. Street parking in the front. Or parking in the back.
