The staff of massage therapists and aestheticians at True Spa keeps clients’ skin smooth and muscles loose with a full menu of bodywork and beauty services. Massage therapists untie the muscle knots that have burrowed into the shoulders and back using deep-tissue techniques, and they provide all-over stress relief with gentle, flowing Swedish massage. Aestheticians use facials and body scrubs to cleanse clients’ pores and buff away dull cells. They also adhere to squeaky-clean hygienic practices during men's and women's waxes that leave nearly any part of the anatomy smoother than chocolate mousse in silk pajamas.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Korean spa's massive 40,000-square-foot facility houses multiple floors, which each feature saunas aimed at providing visitors with relaxation and health benefits. Heated to a pore-opening 200 degrees Celsius from burning oak-tree wood, the dome-shaped hot-steam room—bulhanjeungmok in Korean—features floors made of yellow soil and salt that replicate a 500-year-old therapy designed to treat illness and pain. On the complete opposite side of the temperature spectrum, the ice sauna uses freezer-like frosted walls to cool the air around patrons sitting on log stools or standing on their hands. In between hopping from sauna to sauna, visitors may hang out in one of the lounges, get a haircut, or even grab a warm Korean meal or refreshing dessert.
