Health and Beauty Spas rose petals


bedsFor the spa devotee, L.A's health and beauty spas offer a diverse slice of blissed out heaven. Where else in the world can you find a 24 hour spa offering a traditional Korean massage and scrub, onyx stone saunas, plus karaoke? So, take our advice, ditch the car and go to one of our metro-friendly health and beauty spas. Sip cucumber juice while soaking your feet in orange-scented water. Take a delicious nap on heated jade water drop in leafstones, sweat out your stress in the steam room. Get a Japanese massage, or better yet the goddess treatment: two hours of restorative bliss. A full body sea-salt scrub, followed by a deep tissue massage, topped off with a green seaweed mask facial. Your pores will breath and you'll be ready to sit in L.A.'s only hot springs spa and let the mineral-rich water clean out every negative thought you ever had. And remember this: the best remedy for Metro-riding feet is a classic Chinese foot massage.
