Looking for a unique spa experience? Something other than a basic facial or manicure? How about a Korean or Chinese body scrub? A hydrotherapy pool? An African foot soak? A holistic approach? Check out some of these one-of-a-kind spas in Puget Sound for your next relaxing spa day.

Olympus Spa
3815 196th Street SW
Lynnwood, WA 98036

Olympus spa is a family owned business that has two locations, Lynnwood and Tacoma. These Korean spas are day spas for women-only, and robes are optional. Caps and gowns are provided for use outside of the water facilities. If you feel uncomfortable being nude in the water area, you can always put a towel around you.
Enjoy the many energy rooms, herbal dry sauna, steam sauna, and different whirl pools. Plan to just soak the day away, or plan a treatment or two. Take a break to enjoy tea in the beautiful tea room. Ever tried a Korean body scrub? You first soak in one of the heated hydro-therapy pools for at least 30 minutes, then have one of the awesome scrub ladies scrub you down with her magical scrub mitt. Have the premium scrub if you would like a little longer scrubbing. It’s recommended for those ladies who are trying out the body scrub for the first time, or if it’s an overdue body scrub and you just need those extra 15 minutes of bliss. Body wraps like the Seaweed Detox Wrap and the Hungarian Mud Wrap are popular, along with facials, manicures and pedicures with skincare products from the wonderful ILIKE organic skincare line. Prices are very reasonable and the facility is relaxing and inviting.
