Located in a bland strip mall in Studio City, Pampered Foot Spa offers a serious, one-hour, full-body massage for the crazy-low price of $25. The rules are far different from a pricey massage palace: You wear your own loose clothing throughout, and only whispering is allowed. They'll seat you on a massage bed in an open, darkened room with tinkling bamboo music. Your feet are placed in a soothing bath of warm water while an Asian masseuse does a satisfying number on your shoulders and back. You can dimly see other people getting the same treatment. Then your masseuse lays you down for a wonderful, deep-tissue rub of your arms, calves, thighs and butt, followed by a wildly satisfying pressure-point massage of your scalp and feet. People love it — Pampered Foot Spa is never empty. 11384 Ventura Blvd., Studio City. (818) 763-8988, pamperedfootmassage.com.
