Yuan Spa recently offered me a chance to try out a complimentary hydrotherapy pass.

I have never been to a spa before and the day I chose had been a particular bad day at the office, so I was ready for some relaxation. The front office staff was very friendly and showed me around the spa.  Everything was incredibly calm and tranquil, even the changing room, if that is possible.  I was given a robe, a towel, no-slip shower sandals and was shown how to store my valuables in the changing room locker. I had brought my own swimsuit, but if I had forgotten it, Yuan Spa does offer suits (which I saw are washed and thoroughly sanitized between uses). I was then left on my own to find my happy place.   The staff ask that patrons shower before entering the hydrotherapy pools and I did just that after I put my phone in the locker to shut out the world for 30 minutes of bliss.

The hydrotherapy space has two pools, a sauna and a steam room. The space is coed, but there were only three other women in the pools with me.  I spent about fifteen minutes in the hot pool with the jets massaging my lower back, which was much needed as I have been training for a CrossFit competition.  The whole atmosphere was very relaxing.  I eventually made my way into the other pool, which had much cooler water in it.  The shock to my body subsided quickly, but I did go back into the warmer pool for a little longer!

I ended up spending a few minutes in the relaxation room just to experience it before I had to leave.  One of these days I need to return to Yuan Spa again and maybe spend half a day relaxing instead of just an hour!  I highly recommend taking some time for yourself at Yuan Spa and just letting yourself go.  It’s therapeutic for the mind and the soul.
