Headed over to OLYMPIC SPA (OS) for a facial… Love, love this place. Everyone who’s been here says the same thing — OS is not for the shy. Even as I sat in the waiting area there were naked women all over the place. Not one could care less. Very refreshing. You’re pretty exposed during the facial as well. So, if you prefer to have a blanket pulled up to your neck– this place is not for you.
My favorite treatment is the Aromatic Balancing Facial ($60) which includes deep cleansing, lymphatic drainage massage, extractions and an aromatherapy mask. Lymphatic drainage, if you’ve never tried it, is the cat’s meow. It’s designed to activate and cleanse the human fluid system and involves vigorous massaging of your facial muscles. Each time I find myself thinking: “Wow. There are lots of muscles in my face that I didn’t realize were there.”
I thought my nose was going to break during the pressure of one particular extraction, but I think she got to something that RAYA missed the last two facials. Intense, but you gotta appreciate the vigor. There was no way she was going to let me leave with a single pore unturned. Loved it and highly recommended.
Next time I’m going in for the very popular Akasuri body scrub.
