I love Asian spas and I found this jewel right here in Atlanta in the Korean area! I love the incorporation of Eastern healing practices in these kinds of spas. This Korean spa, called Jeju had separate sauna healing huts. The one I am in in the video is their “stone and jewel” hut that had a huge star of amethyst on ceiling, and the entire walls decorated in semi-precious stones to rejuvenate you when you are in there.
Here are some better pictures of the stones on the ceilings and side of this sauna hut:
They also had a sea salt room completely covered in huge salt rocks (to relax tension), a charcoal room (to draw out impurities), a red clay room, an ice room, a jade room with Chinese herbs steeping and so much more! You can just chill in there and go in all the various huts and rooms.
If you haven’t tried out an Asian spa I encourage you to find out in your area. Good ones, like this one, are spotless and have amazing detoxifying and healing rooms/treatments. It is quite the treat. Your skin will glow after sweating out so many impurities and toxins and you will feel great and renewed, proving headache relief after a long day.
If you know of a good one in your area, please share!
I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Happy Sunday!!
Kim, thanks for the info as always! Do you (or anyone reading this!) know of any Asian spas in the Boston area? Love your site! Thanks 🙂
I just learned of Asian spas in the past year and love them! The one in Atlanta you described sounds a lot like the Spa Castle in Queens, NY. They also have a Jade Room and other themed huts and saunas, including an infrared light room and ice room (did not like that one though..). If you haven’t been, I would definitely check it out – they also have korean body scrubs which rubs off thick chunks of dead skin and feels GREAT after!
I love Asian spas also because they’re more affordable than luxury places like Bliss, which means you can go more often =P
Not only more affordable…but I like the Asian treatments better, personally. 🙂
Is Spa Castle hard to get to? Do you have to take a bus??
Last time I went, I took a cab, but the subway gets you there easily – take the 7 Train to the last stop (Flushing, Main Street), then there’s a free shuttle bus that takes you there.
It’s great, $45 gets you an all day pass to lounge around in the different igloos/saunas, then it’s extra for massages, scrubs, etc. I swear I don’t work for them haha, just really loved my experience there!
There are also a couple in K-town that are supposed to be good, but haven’t personally tried.
Are you familiar with any Asian Spas in New York?
I have been to Osaka, and there are some great ones in Chinatown but I don’t know the name…and there is one in Queens called Spa Castle that is supposed to be good. 🙂
OMG I LOVE Asian spas. My friends and I went to one in LA that was awesome. Have been meaning to try the one in far Flushing (Queens), but haven’t made it yet. Ha, just realized that Flushing is an appropriate name for a spa that detoxes 😉
The “Turkish bathouse” style spas are pretty cool, too. There, they beat your skin with olive branches to purify it.
I wish the Turkish bath houses in NY were cleaner though…the kind of gross me out!
Kimberly—So glad you found JeJu. It such a spiritual place. You have to try the scrub. I highly recommend Korean spas and if in Atlanta, JeJu is the best. Peace be with you, David
Wow, that is great you’ve been there too!
I know there’s one in Washington D.C that has everything you just mentioned, and more. It was SO relaxing, especially in winter!
Hi Tera, I am relocating to Washington DC and have fallen in LOVE with Jeju in Geiorgia. Would you be so kind as to share the name of the asian spa in DC…Namaste
Any one know of one in the san fransisco/bay area or sacramento area
I love Jeju. This is one of my favorite places in Atlanta! I especially love the scrubs!!
I’m so glad to have discovered your blog. It’s full of great info and I love your all-natural, diet-based approach. I’ve laid off of cooking with coconut oil because its wintertime solid-state was too hard for me to work with; but after reading your praises about CO… I’m back to it. Are you in Atlanta for an extended period of time?
Anyone know of any in Toronto? They sound great!
Everybody take a second to feel sorry for those of us who live far away from all these cool things!
Now that my whining is over–I’m going to Santa Fe this weekend, and while there probably isn’t an Asian spa, I’ll bet I can find something great and relaxing there!
Hi Kimberly, my name is Eileen and I have just recently stumbled upon your blog and I have to say I am blown away. I always wanted to be a nutritionist but with lifes little hiccups I never got a chance. I have always been spiritual too. I have done alot of reading and studying nutrition, Gary Null’s books, Prescription for Natural Health and so on. I have alot of knowledge that I would love to put into good use. How long did it take to become a nutritionist? What school did you got to and was it expensive? I just had a baby, he’s 14 months old so I am looking to take an online course for nutrition. I have to say you are my new role model a true inspiration. Your a blessing from god. Keep doing what your doing. Right now I have a beauty blog where I review and discuss beauty products ect.. I am obsessed with all things beautiful. Check me out and make my day. Thanks for doing what your doing. God bless you.
Totally off the subject but I love this site and was wondering if you (or anyone) could recommend a natural bland in hair care? Something without the parabens and sulfates?
Thank you for all the great info everyday!
that Asian spa sounds fantastic!
Spa Castle is a little hard to get to. You have to take the 7 train to Flushing, then a bus to Spa Castle- about an hour to an hour and a half from Manhattan. It costs $35 to get in. It’s great- but because of it’s location it’s an all day affair!
I’ve heard there’s something similar in K-town. Does anyone know?
What is the asian spa in Los Angeles???
There’s a huge Asian community in Vegas but does anyone know of an Asian spa there?
Talking about Korean spas, there is one that is amazing in Dallas called King’s Spa. It is a 24 hour spa, with 9 saunas and truly a relaxing and enjoyable experience. I highly recomend it.
Good article. Thanks for sharing
Lots of love, Meena! Xo
