Who are those masked men and women massaging backs and feet on Wilshire Blvd? We sent our most senior photographer to find out.
After a 6 month closure mandated by Governor Newsom because of covid 19, The Bao Foot Spa reopened several weeks ago. A small comfortable spa works out bodily kinks using massages on the back, neck, feet, calves and hands.
It has set up two outside stations on Wilshire Blvd at Euclid. It has been in that location (Euclid and Wilshire) for 5 years.
Piran Zarisan, the owner has had another facility on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills for the past 10 years.
The outside chairs are sanitized with spray after each person sits in them- another protection is the use of new paper coverings around the face for each client as he lays in the chair.
All the personnel are masked and gloved.
The fee to unwind people in these stressful times is $49/per hour, $29/half hour.
