Caught Athlete's Foot

Olympic Spa is a fairly good deal. It is not a spa of luxury, but is adequate for the price. The staff is friendly and parking easy. [Valet or Street]. I have been going there for a couple of years at least once a week. I did however have the unfortunate luck of catching athlete's foot once. I attempted to wear sandals and was told they were not allowed. I have never been to a spa that did not provide or allow footwear. I expect I will never return.

The Goddess Treatment: not for Me

Since the economy is so bad I thought I should save some money and go to the Olympic Spa instead of my regular spa. I had been once to this spa for a facial and it was great, so I decided to try the ""goddess body ritual"", oh how I regret it.... when I first walked into the pool area I was shocked to see women bathing sitting on tiny stools rubbing each part of their body like they are in their own bathroom, with no shame or modesty at all, then I watch how many women lied on tables ...view morecompletely unclothed and exposed while being massaged and rubbed, I took a shower and waited for my turn... I was dreading it, at some point I actually thought of canceling my treatment, but then I thought, well I should try something new even if I am not comfortable with it, now I regret it. I asked one of them employees for a private room but she said that nobody cared, and she told me where they were going to do my treatment. So I watched my masseuse finish with the lady before me and barely throw some water on the table and pass a scrub on it and come to get me. At that point I thought is this sanitary? ? and when we got to the table she helped me get my robe off and signaled me to lay on the table face up, and put a towel on my face, which I didn't remove for the rest of the time because I was so embarrassed and uncomfortable, and wondering if I am going to get some disease from this unsanitary situation, I don't even know if she was using the same sponge to scrub me that she used with the previous lady.... I regret not canceling my treatment and seriously considering visiting my doctor.view less

Great Reflexolgy For Tired Feet

Love the shiatsu massage and reflexology massage combo when I don't feel like going to the spa part. When I do....Pure Bliss and Goddess are worth every penny. Full Body Scrub, Facial, Massage, Hair treatment all wrapped in. The Best!

No more lizzard skin!!!

This place rocks my world! I had the Pure Bliss treatment 2 weeks ago and I'm still smooth. Yes, it is a little on the harsh side (those ladies can scrub a little on the hard side and if they do it too hard, ask them to ease up a bit) but hang in there for wonderful skin afterward. The exfoliation was amazing, the massage heaven and the facial outstanding. Yes, you are totally without clothes/bathing suits and yes, the women in there come in every shape and size. It is a no frills spa ...view morefor sure but so worth it. I could spend hours each day there if only I didn't have a job. Bring your own shampoo, conditioner, body wash, (they do supply this but I prefer my own) and scrubby loofah to complete your time there. Then, dry off, put on your rode and take a cat nap on the heated floor,blankets provided. Don't let your shyness keep you from going. You will not regret it!!!view less

Bracing but Excellent Spa Experience

Olympic Spa is not for those who expect complete luxury in their spa experiences. While the treatments are equal or superior to those at high-end spas, the ambiance is *not*. It is more akin to a YMCA...in the Soviet Union....in 1955. Keep in mind that old does not necessarily mean dirty. I have visited this spa twice and I will definitely go again. You must drop your inhibitions because bathing suits are not allowed. Yes, there are towels and skimpy robes available. Expect to see wome...view moren of all types wandering around in the altogether, plus the attendants in black bras and undies. On one visit, I had the Goddess, which included a scrub (hard-core), sugar rub, massage, facial, scalp massage and hair wash/condition, all for $100. The intent here is not to relax you, but to make sure you are clean and healthy. On my next visit, I had a 75 minute massage for $75. It was a serious massage that ended with the masseuse using her feet on my back--excellent but hardly relaxing. You can use the pools, saunas and steam rooms for $15, which is a steal. They also have a heated jade floor--patrons lay out blankets and rest. Free valet parking!view less

Best culture shock spa

I was nervous at first because of the nakedness, but yes you have to get used to it. I got the acne facial from Ann, and it was probably the most painful facial I have ever had. She really pushed hard on the extractions to the point where I thought she broke my nose. They have no limit or boundaries on the pain facter. \r
However for massages and the bathhouse, I highly recommend it. It's an awesome place to just detox and relax.

Bad experience

Went in for Goddess treatment, first time. NOT given in a PRIVATE ROOM; all treatments are in room where the pools saunas showers. Hear chitter chatter, showers running\r
\r
First BODY SCRUB. Felt like my SKIN being RUBBED OFF and bleeding. The lady did ask if it was okay, and (regretfully) I said yes. I have this flaw where I tend to trust the expertise of people. In between, she would throw buckets of water on me I wasn't expecting. Told her I CAN'T GET ANY WATER IN MY left EAR.
...view moreShe said, ""okay."" \r
\r
The body shampoo smelled great, but her hands were MOVING SO FAST, I couldn't relax. \r
\r
WORST PART: she threw a bucket of water on me, with absolutely no concern for my ear which I specifically told her about, a whole bunch of water went directly into my ear. Then she took A TISSUE AND ROLLED THE EDGE OF IT TO A FINE TIP POINT AND STUCK IT IN MY EAR! OUCH. I didn't know I signed up for this! I remained courteous and got my ear plugs from my locker (thought I'd need only for the showers). I showed her the scar behind my ear and held up my fingers to ""4"" saying I've had 4 surgeries in this ear. SHE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT KNOW ENGLISH. I have nothing against immigrants, I am one myself but I'd like whoever is working on me (while I have no clothes on at all) to be able to communicate with me. Call me crazy.\r
\r
The face and scalp massage, and hair shampoo were (surprisingly!) ROUGH. I know for a fact that she was pulling out hairs because she spent the rest of the treatment periodically picking hairs off my body. A little shedding expected, but this was too much. \r
\r
Ended up getting a severe painful ear infection (first since my last surgery almost 3 years ago!), had to go to the doctor, on antibiotic eardrops and oral antibiotics. Got SCABS on my arms from scratches from the scrub, and I BROKE OUT on my face (rare). I know that typically after facials break outs occur, but this wasn't a facial.

love it

This is thebest place, you can go and relax in the oxygen/sauna rooms or hop in the mugwort bath. The treatments are the best. Highly recommended.

Not what I expected

I went to olympic spa for the first time because I heard of their great prices and spa packages. When i got to the locker room, i noticed women walking around without clothes which was ok, but they were a bit crass for my taste.. scratching themselves in private areas and otherwise acting a bit vulgar (I'm no princess, but I was a bit shocked). I ordered the Pure Bliss - and it was anything but blissful. I was led to an area of the spa and told to lay on a wet table by a korean lady...view more that was more like a drill sargent than a masseuse. She did not speak english and would get upset when I asked her to repeat a command that i did not understand. She proceeded to scrub me down violently as if i had been covered in sewage and i thought.. ok, well at least i'm getting a good exfoliation.. it will all be worth it when the massage part comes. Wrong! The massage was even more violent. I felt like a tough steak being pounded and seasoned for dinner. I did not feel connected to my masseuse. It was like I was not human to her and she was just going through the motions of her job. Funny thing is that I actually like firm hands and deep tissue massage, but this was insane! I could not wait for it to be over. If I had gone just for the exfoliation and paid $30, i guess i would have been ok with that, but i went in for what was advertised as a blissful experience, and left feeling more tense than when i came in, but with smoother skin.view less

Good place

I think the spa is good. What I didn't like about the spa was that the Korean ladies that go to the spa were very rude, unclean and don't like people that are not Korean. One of them even screamed at me because I was wearing sandals. By the way, I have been to several other spas (NY, Hawaii, Spain, Morocco, Chile, Argentina and so on) and have always worn sandals. Actually, all the other spas I have been to require you to wear sandals. Anyway, the place is good. I loved the restaurant...view more and the shiatsu massage, but the people that go there are not very nice.\r
