Where to Revive Yourself After the Holidays
Feel like yourself again with help from these West Hollywood spas and gyms.
Holiday stress is legendary. Whether it’s in your shoulders, thanks to your in-laws; in your stomach, thanks to those extra slices of pie; or in your mind, thanks to that nine-hour drive to visit relatives, there’s a place in West Hollywood that can help you feel like your normal self again.
Here’s the ultimate guide to fine-tuning yourself after the holidays—from spas to sweat lodges to major workouts.
The Spa at Sunset Marquis
Full disclosure: You may have to battle a celebrity for an appointment here. However, if it’s an ultimate day of pampering you are after, this is one of the best options in the United States. The treatments are not only luxurious and largely organic-product-based, they are also unique. For example, you could opt for the Pipe Cleaner––a treatment focused on your airways, throat, chest and vocal chords. Or, bring your significant other along for a Couples Romance service that includes your own spa suite, dual aromatherapy massages, and private rain shower built for two.
