UPDATE!! I’m totally in the know of the ins and outs of this amazing Korean Spa in Northridge.
I have the name of the Korean style spa that I have been mentioning about town. It’s CJ Grand Spa in Granada Hills, and it’s affordably fabulous.
My friend and I come to CJ Grand Spa in Northridge a few times per year, and it’s the perfect get-away for the price. Granted, its a little bit hard to find – you have to sort of drive into the Wells Fargo parking lot and continue going straight to the back lot, and there isn’t a bunch of parking…but trust me, once inside, it’s awesome. They have a full sized spa side for Women and Men – the photo shows the two different entrances. The daily rate for the spa amenities without any services is $20.
We usually get the ‘Special Package’ which includes a 30 minute signature body scrub, a detoxifying wrap, a mini facial massage and face mask, a hair shampoo and then a 45 minute full body oil massage in the wet room on super polished skin. Included in your treatment of choice, you get all access to the spa amenities which includes various spa rooms including sauna, steam, jade, clay, ice, salt and hot sauna, sulfure pools, cold and hot Jacuzzi, showers, relaxation lounges, fitness room, and of course locker rooms. You can check out their photo gallery here.
If you’ve never been to a Korean style spa before, you must know a few things, because it was kind of a shock to me the first time I went:
- You have to be ok with nudity. Yours and your treatment lady. They usually wear black undies and bras, and they usually are older, and have zero shame, so you shouldn’t have any shame either. Everyone is there to get clean and polished.
- You have to be ok with some rough body scrubbing. Literally, there is a big trash can of warm water and a massage table, and a bucket with exfoliant with a scraper tool that looks like they got it from Home Depot. But whatever. It exfoliates you like you’ve never EVER experienced before.
- You have to listen and follow directions. They will ask you to turn to certain angles, scrub between your toes, under your armpits, behind your ears…you get the picture. You’re gonna get scrubbed alllll the way down.
The end result? Super smooth skin, a freshly washed head of hair that is squeaky clean, and a total moisturized body. All of this for $130.00. Can I get an AMEN!?
