Renewal: Ways to Recharge Your Mind, Body & Spirit

There’s no better time to recharge and empower your body than right now! Maybe you like to recharge with a workout. Or perhaps a massage, meditation or facial is what your soul craves. The following are some popular ways to renew your mind, body and spirit in about an hour. I’ve added some “make-a-day-of-it tips” for those of you who have a little more me-time to spare.

Spa & Wellness

SPA at Sunset Marquis

This effortlessly cool hotel property just exudes that “rockstars and models” vibe. A SPA fave from their Rock Star Menu is The Body Tune designed to “Keep your strings in perfect pitch with a Hot Stone Body Treatment and Indian Head Massage, chased with a complimentary shot of Scotch.”

Insider Tip: Meander across the pathway and dine al fresco at Cavatina, especially for Sunday Brunch!

Shape House

This Urban Sweat Lodge is the perfect place to Netflix and Sweat for one hour. Founder Sophie Cliche is passionate about the transformative power of a good sweat and Selena Gomez is reported to have used this protocol to keep her skin glowing and her body svelte.

Insider Tip: Grab a healthy smoothie at Alchemy across the street to keep the healthy vibes going.

Joanna Vargas Skin Care at Sunset Tower Hotel

Another celebrity secret weapon is aesthetician Joanna Vargas who opened her West Coast outpost at the iconic Sunset Tower. She has brought in treatments and modalities from all over the world and created the SuperNova Facial, which is always a hit during awards season.

Insider Tip: Make it a full-on rejuvenation day and add a massage before your facial.

Unplug Meditation

Founder Suze Yalof Schwartz has created a secular, beautiful oasis for stressed-out locals and visitors alike to unplug and recharge. Sit in a sound healing, breathwork, or meditation class find your perfect state of calm.
