FIVE SIGNATURE SAUNA ROOMS RELAX AND RESTORE
AT LOS ANGELES’ PREMIER KOREAN DAY SPA.
In the heart of Koreatown, the four-story Wi Spa welcomes Angelenos from all cultural backgrounds. Beyond the therapeutic and traditional Korean massage, reflexology, and skin care treatments, guests enjoy a communal atmosphere on the co-ed floor, known as the “jimjilbang.” Here, visitors indulge in the spa’s five exclusive sauna rooms, each addressing various needs of the body. As a supplement to steam saunas on the private floors, the jimjilbang boasts signature Clay, Salt, Jade, Bulgama, and Ice Saunas – and is one of only a handful of spa in the US to offer this experience:
BULGAMA The Bulgama (meaning yellow earth room), made mostly out of oak wood, sits at an impressive 231 degrees for intense thermotherapy. As guests lie on the floor, heat helps to loosen muscles, remove toxins and bacteria in the body, and reduce blood pressure -- for an overall cleansing effect. Recommended usage is 15-30 minutes.
SALT The Salt Sauna, with the help of thousand-year-old minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium and selenium, improves the physical, chemical and hydrodynamic conditions of the body. The respiratory system is purified, circulation improves, the immune system is strengthened, and muscles are relaxed. In addition, halotherapy (salt therapy) is healing for skin conditions. Recommended usage is 20 minutes.
CLAY While the Clay Sauna features clay specially imported from Korea, clay has been used for centuries around the world for its medicinal and cosmetic benefits. This natural mud stimulates the lymphatic system and assists in the heavy metal detoxification process. Guests immerse their bodies under layers of clay balls to increase the body temperature. Recommended usage is 30-45 minutes.
JADE The powerfully hot Jade Room eases muscle tension, helps with arthritis, and is known to lower the cerebral temperature. The sodium and minerals within the walls of Jade Spa also help in the balancing of hormones. In Asian culture, Jade has long been revered for its healing properties and in aiding stress relief. Recommended usage is 20 minutes.
ICE The Ice Sauna is the final stop after a day at the spa. This room helps bring the core body temperature down, closes the pores and tightens the skin. By finishing with the Ice Sauna, circulation will improve and overall well-being is restored. Recommended usage is 5-10 minutes.
