now I see that sarack's never been to a spa

we should totally do a g2g at the olympus day spa in lynnwood. I'm obsessed with that place. does require nakedness though, haha.

Re: now I see that sarack's never been to a spa

  • I keep wanting to go to the one in Tacoma, but when i think of it, i can't go.  I'm not sure i'm ready (or ever will be ready) for a naked GTG, though, haha.

  • I would be up for it! FYI, you don't HAVE to be naked. The only time you do is if you want to hang out in the pools.

    The rest of the spa you wear a robe. Though you have to change in a open locker room. I'm sure you could change in one of the bathroom stalls...

    I'm fine being naked w/strangers or a select few friends (i even went to a clothing optional resort/nude hot tub with coworkers, once), but for online people i "know" it's outside my comfort zone.

  • EmY I work not far from there, what's it like? I've never been to any spa but have been thinking about trying that one. My birthday is coming up in Dec and I heard you get free admission.

    This, everything this.  My birthday is in December as well, and a free spa visit seems like a perfect opportunity to see what wonderous things are involved in a spa visit.

    How about a Nestie GTG in December, and a double yes if it falls when I can get free entrance!   Yep, I'd be in, nakedness and all.

    There's a semi-co-ed, not naked version of Olympus called Bella Luna. I've never been but friends have been and like it.

    * Most or all of the pools are single-sex, but the various dry rooms are coed. And I don't think any of it is no-clothing-required. But, not totally sure.

  • bummer that they got rid of the free entrance on your birthday!

    sarah, there's no embarrassment really. I go to the hot house spa in cap hill all the time, and one of the things I love is that it's a collection of all types of women. 

    it's really relaxing, and the scrubs they do are incredible (although the korean ladies get allll up in your business, haha. like, they literally scrub everything).

    I've gone a few times just to go to the different steam rooms, hot rooms, and hot tubs.  

  • I don't think I could do a naked spa, but I've heard it's great.

  • if people are interested in Dec, maybe I'll just pick a random Saturday afternoon.

    Nice thing about it for a g2g is that it's 1) a public place, 2) it doesn't matter if no one shows up. seriously, I'll totally just go by myself, lol.

    That sounds like fun to me. I'm so glad I don't work Saturdays.

  • I am not sure if we have to go on the exact date of our birthdays, but December would be good anyway because it will be so cold out, just the perfect time to go in and relax in the spa.

    I dont live.work far from there in the first place, so if I like it maybe I can make it routine :)

  • I've actually never been to a spa either. How much is it?
    Daisypath Vacation tickers
  • daily entry pass is $35. usually when I go I just do that.

    sometimes I'll add on a scrub, which is $65.

    they also have things like massages/facials/packages, and the packages will usually cover the cost of the entry pass as well.

    jumped ship to the new and improved nest. back to TB for baby boards.
  • I would totally go to Olympus in December! It's my birthday in December, too, but I just love that spa. I don't even mind being naked that much... although now with my stretch marks from being pg, I'm not super crazy about it. But hey, they're my badges of honor. LOL

    Anyway - I'm up for a GTG in Dec at Olympus... if I can get my DH to stay home and watch M. :)

  • I'd be totally up for it, if showers any hotter than 'lukewarm' didn't make me pass out right now. :-/ After the baby's here??

    It's really not as OMG SCARY as a lot of people think!! I dragged some of my female friends along before my wedding and made 'em experience the Lynnwood Olympus Spa, all of whom were VERY body-shy about it beforehand, and all of whom are now addicted to it. :D It's such a self-affirming place and it's fantastic to see how much confidence they all gained from going!
