Time for a Spa “Bliss” Treatment in La La Land…

With tax receipt sorting deadlines, scanning my life photos & videos to a digital format, and getting ready Super Bowl travel for my client’s son, I need some personal attention!

My skin is dry from the extra heat in my bungalow, my bones ache from walks in the woods or not enough walks, so it’s time for Emerald City.   Emerald City is the term my friend Robin Brazy and I code to each other when in company.  It means either, manicure/pedicure time, hair grooming or local massage, just like Dorothy and her cohorts did before they met the Wizard!  Our Emerald City is Olympic Spa in Korea Town, and what a find! I guess I’ve been going for at least 30 years and have witnessed the evolution from a small time Asian day retreat, to a multi-cultural, all ages clientele sprinkled with a top model & actress presence.

Pure Bliss is an hour & ½ treatment performed in an open shared no-nonsense atmosphere.  No guitar- flute-waterfall music, no incense just the Korean ladies, outfitted in flip flops and their black bra & panties, who scrub, scrap, slap and throw buckets of warm water to wash away the crepe skin and toxins.   I LOVE IT !!! Description is below and may I recommend all of us in our Final Chapter living to continue these great treatments or start as soon as you can!
