For my birthday, my awesome friend & fellow yogi Lisa Gibson treated me to The JJ Korean Spa in Coquitlam. For 2 1/2 hours we soaked, steamed, saunaed, hot tubed and were scrubbed of years worth of skin. Following the scrub we basked in the warmth of the salt, earth and charcoal rooms.
The different rooms claim to rid you of impurities and toxins. As well as re-balance hormones, stimulate the circulatory system and soothe your nervous system…amoung other countless benefits.
For the facilities alone (Men & Woman have separate areas) it costs $15 for as long as you want to hang out there. Add in a scrub or a massage for $60 (TRUST me, its worth it).
Taking the opportunity to really care for you body is something we urban folk should embrace more! Lets follow the lead of the Korenans, Turks, Moroccans and Sweds… (and it doesn’t need to cost and arm & a leg).
This was a such a deeply nourising event- that I just had to share.
