I went to visit the Tikkun Spa in Santa Monica, California. It is centrally located in downtown Santa Monica, a short distance from the Third St. Promenade, the Pier, Palisades Park and Ocean Ave. restaurants. Upon entering the spa you are greeting by a very friendly staff and feel a sense of calm.
I proceeded to the mens locker room area where you receive a pair of laundered shirt and shorts to wear in the co-ed area. They also provide rubber sandals. The mens and womens locker room have a steam bath and sauna which are both very effective. You are provided with Aveda shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the showers. They have alkaline lemon, herb infused ice water in the locker room.
There are also robes for your service of therapeutic massages if you book an appointment. When in the co-ed area their is an infra red room, and a salt room which was my favorite. You lie down and really feel the detox at work.
They also have a a cold room which is a good switch up to cool down. They have a very nice relaxation area where you can enjoy some hot herbal tea or other iced drinks. The ideal situation would be to enjoy the spa and then go for your treatment.
You will come out feeling rejuvenated and you can walk over to many restaurants for lunch, dinner or a snack. THE EXPERIENCE MAGAZINE highly recommends the Tikkun Spa.
