MY FIRST KOREAN SCRUB EXPERIENCE
MY FIRST KOREAN SCRUB EXPERIENCE
If you don’t know what a Korean Scrub is it is a unique experience, a full body scrub. Performed in Korea, it is called Seshin. Our Seshin, is a head to toe exfoliation ritual, removing dead skin. This is a serious scrub, intended for a full body experience, that will result in baby soft skin. For Christmas Tabitha General Manager + Owner of Sacred Hour Wellness Spa and Sacred Retreats gifted me a Korean Scrub. I’ve been with the team since June booking countless scrubs, and explaining the service to so many interested guests. I have now learned that the Korean Scrub at Sacred just isn’t something you can understand or explain to someone until you actually receive. Words literally cannon express the ritualistic beauty of this service.
Life has been particularly chaotic for me after the holidays and I knew I was in need of some serious me time. So I finally got around to it and scheduled my scrub on a day where my mom and I could meet and have a girls night at the Spa followed by dinner at Salt just down the street. We checked in early and had time to relax together in the lounge for tea before our services began. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little anxious about unrobing in front of one of my co-workers, but that quickly disappeared from my mind.
Christina came over and whisked me away to the private bungalow where I changed into a cozy bath robe and slipped into the steam room where she had water and a towel waiting for me. I laid on the warm tiles, taking in deep breaths of steam filled with eucalyptus essential oil. After about twenty minutes she came to check on me and moved me into the steam room. The lights were dimly lit as I laid down on the table and steam slowly began to fill the entire room. As she began pouring warm bowls of water over my entire body I quickly relaxed and all inhibitions floated away in the steam. I knew I was in for something I had never experienced before.
She began scrubbing me on my back and shoulders first, and with vigor. That I was not expecting, yet the more she scrubbed the more relaxed I became. Moving down to my calves, thighs, my but and the soles of my feet, even in-between my toes. She then repositioned me and I felt like I was in the fetal position, basically drooling at this point and I couldn’t lift my body. From my side she worked over my arms again, armpits, sides and the sides of my thighs making sure to cover ever inch. More bowls of warm water came rushing over me as I flipped over and she began scrubbing the front of my body, again from head to toe.
This next part was my favorite. After scrubbing my entire body Christina pull me to the top of the table so my hair could hang off of the edge. My skin was tingling all over and I couldn’t possibly imagine how it could get any better, but then it did. She poured more water over my head and began shampooing my hair with the best smelling shampoo. After that she conditioned and brushed my hair. While the conditioner sat on she washed my face with the softest wash rag. Slowly going over my face, behind my ears and even in all those little spaces in your ear. I felt like a baby. The last time I received any type of treatment like this I was a child in the skin or bathtub with my mother. This was absolutely magical! She then rinsed my hair and sat me up and poured a few more final bowls of water over me.
I felt absolutely euphoric, I couldn’t believe it. It’s better than any drug I’ve ever done, sex, my favorite meal and a glass of wine. I am still at a loss for words for the level of care and treatment I received. Christina poured her self and her love into me, there is no denying that. I showered off after in the rain shower and then she met me in the micro lounge for another cup of hot tea. I headed back to the locker room, moisturized which felt absolutely amazing on my clean glowing skin, and headed back to the main house where I met back up with my mother. She had just received at deep tissue massage with Marissa that I had gifted to her for her Birthday. We had to take a few minutes to relax in the dimly lit lounge because there was absolutely no way either of us was going to drive anywhere in that euphoric states we were in.
With all that being said I want to thank Tabitha for bringing the Korean Scrub to Cleveland and for building a beautiful healing facility here in Lakewood, Ohio. Thank you to Christina for offering yourself and providing this loving, ritualistic service to me and so many others. If you didn’t know about the Korean Scrub or you’re thinking about a Steam + Scrub I hope this shed some light on what to expect. I highly recommend you do yourself a favor and book one, you will not be disappointed, and I guarantee you will not experience this level of care anywhere else.
