As its name implies, Spa World blends the spa traditions of diverse cultures into a contemporary oasis dedicated to total-body relaxation. The 50,000-square-foot, modernized jimjilbang, a traditional Korean bathhouse, admits guests 24 hours per day, seven days a week, giving them up to 12 hours of open access to a bade pool, a sauna, a fitness center, and seven poultice rooms.
One of the spa's many focal points is the bade pool, which targets sore muscles with nine water-blasting massage stations, including a neck shower and a bench jet that sprays high-pressure water onto feet, calves, waists, and sides to increase blood circulation. Nudity is required to keep the pool free of clothing-based contaminants. Blue onyx, amethyst gems, and ice arch overhead in the seven poultice rooms, each of which is artfully decorated and designed to detoxify bodies. Rare substances comprise the walls and ceilings; Korean red clay radiates purifying bio-infrared rays, and salt rocks imported from the Himalayas expand pores. To nourish guests who choose to remain for the day pass's full 12 hours, the onsite restaurant sometimes pilfers these salt rocks to help flavor its authentic Asian cuisine.
The Women's Club Fitness Center & Day Spa has brought people together for over a quarter century to develop strong bodies and radiant skin. Under the direction of owner Florence Auld, their staff has grown from 15 to 55 professionals who have earned advanced degrees, certifications, and secret handshakes in their fields, including specialists in cardiac rehabilitation and myofascial-release massage. Before earning her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, nutritionist Lucky Bennett fed her interest in women's health at the University of Washington, where she earned a degree in Women's Studies with a focus on women and medicine.
The staff welcomes new gym members by designing them a personalized workout regimen, then walking them through the correct use of strength and cardio equipment. More than 50 group classes add camaraderie to cardio or stretch-and-toning workouts, and childcare is available for a nominal fee to help mothers make friends their own age. Spa treatments focus on revealing fresh, smooth skin all over the body with topical treatments in tandem with pore-clearing sessions in the dry-rock sauna.
At Bela Luz Health Salon, which derives its name from the Portuguese words for “beautiful light,” wellness specialists harness the power of light-based technology and detox treatments to instill a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. The techs coddle mainframes in herbal and mineral body wraps, which sculpt sleeker shapes while ousting toxins through the lymphatic system. Infrared light shares the stage in a duo of treatments, soothing muscles alongside jade rollers in sauna massage beds and reversing wrinkles while hides soak up UV rays during skin-rejuvenation tanning. Additionally, Bela Luz’s skin savants utilize LED light to chase away fine lines and monsters during DermaKinetics and LED photo facials.
The saunas at The Hot Spot are no ordinary steam rooms. Instead of using water poured over hot rocks, these saunas use far infrared light, which penetrates the skin's surface without cloying heat. This helps visitors sweat out a higher percentage of toxins than with typical saunas, increasing the therapeutic benefit, with a deeper, more voluminous swear. One hour in the sauna helps the body detoxify at the cellular level, burning calories, improving the appearance of cellulite, and boosting the immune and cardiovascular systems. But despite the many benefits, these saunas are just as relaxing as the traditional kind—clients relax while listening to music, reading a magazine, or assigning names to each of the ceiling tiles.
The staff at Help For Health boosts clients' self confidence and natural beauty with a roster of detoxifying services that promote weight loss and well-being. LipoLaser body sculpting and whole-body vibration sessions can work to contour the body, and lymphatic-drainage therapy and far-infrared saunas encourage the body to secrete toxins through sweat and peer pressure. All treatments are natural and sustainable and come accompanied with a ton of information to keep clients in the know about the services and their own body's natural responses.
Help for Health employs experts specializing in a wide array of wellness services that treat a variety of concerns. On the aesthetic side, laser body-sculpting targets cellulite deposits, and microcurrent systems tone skin to restore youthful looks. Clients can rejuvenate their bodies with soothing massages, detoxifying sessions in an infrared sauna, or colonics that leave them feeling unburdened and energized.
