Gloomy Saturday LA afternoon whats better then going to a spa? Beth heard of a place and of course we were eager to try it out. So we went… After a 30 min drive I arrive on a strip mall parking and i am thinking mmmh is this the right address? I see the sign get my spa gear and walk up the stair. I enter and i am a bit skeptical thinking this doesn't look like the photos, is this place clean??? I speak to the super nice lady at the front desk and afterlooking at the spa menu for 5 minutes she helped me making a decision. Scrub and massage here we come. i walk into the locker room put on my robe i was given and take mytowel. I go to shower and soak in the tub in the sower room as instructed, then walk into the steam room where I am waiting to be picked up. My scrub lady arrived in underwear and takes me to the room. I lay down on a plastic bed face down. Now i understand why she is pretty much not wearing anything its a slippery situation. She starts scrubbing, it doesn't hurt but she is very thorough, she scrubs my back my front my sides i feel and actually saw layers come off. She doesn't speak any english but she smiles and makings swoosh noises when she scrubs which made me laugh. 10 minutes later clean as a whistle I step out with my new skin.
I have a 30 minute break before my massage so I go do the saunas. There step one two three. I fist go into the clay room where i lay in box of clay balls, feels funny, pretty dry air, not crazy hot. Detox all the way. I climb out of my box and onto the next step. i walk into the Himalayan salt room, supposed to be good for slimming and detox ,its lit nicely, the whole room is made out of pink salt crystals. I lay on the floor in my robe and put my head into the head rest. I stay for 10 minutes and move onto the next. The last one is my favorite, infrared light, healing and clearing the skin, the hottest one so far, very relaxing. I walk past a mirror and my skin looks clean almost transparent with pink cheeks, not bad for 10 minutes i think. Then the last step my massage lady picks me up in the locker room, brings me to my private room and starts stretching me. Now this lady is no joke, i booked a swedish massage and she is very strong so i ask her to go a bit softer, i am thinking deep tissue i would be broken in two ha. Also not much english but she did such a great job rolling out the knots in my neck and back and stretching me better than my personal trainer i smile. And she goes; you smile, beauty! I leave the place after 3 hours for 90$ smiling refreshed relaxed skin glowing. What more could I ask for? This place is a gem, clean, calming the ladies did a fantastic job!
