    I love Balanced Bodyworks LA! Raul and his staff are the best! Ian is the newest addition and really knows how to get your body back on track! I highly recommend BBLA for all your body needs!

  • Steph S.

    Hands down THE BEST massage therapists for athletes. Stephanie has taken brought me back from several injuries and knows what to do to keep me swimming, biking and running. I send everyone I know to Balanced Bodyworks LA as the whole staff are miracle workers!

  • Brett C.

    Raul is the best massage therapist I have ever worked with - and, given that I suffer from a connective tissue disease/chronic pain, I have worked with a lot. Note that this is orthopedic massage, not your traditional "spa," relaxing massage, which is perfect for me - I'm looking for major relief, and this fits the bill. Raul is incredibly skilled, knowledgeable, and attuned to the body. He gets into the tiny muscles that most people overlook. Truly excellent.

  • Brad

    Balanced Bodyworks staff knows exactly how to treat each situation that arrives. I came in with so much pain and they helped me immediately treat and cure what I was dealing with. They're fantastic! They know the body and all the intricacies of where your pain may stem from.
