Quickly, you're naked and being rigorously but pleasantly exfoliated by a spa attendant. The body scrub doubles as a full-body massage and is not for the shy, but your skin will never feel smoother, and the results seem to last for at least a week. The women's area of Aroma Spa & Sports has a traditional heated jade room, as well as a mud room and a luxurious collection of hot tubs, mineral baths and steam rooms in which the air is infused with scents of tea tree and eucalyptus. They offer shiatsu, Swedish massage and reflexology, plus a range of facials and skincare treatments, including the fun “chocolate pudding treatment.” The facility is lovely and crammed with an enormous number of seemingly disparate activities (or are they?), including a men's spa, a huge, open-air driving range, gyms, pools and a shopping center. 3680 Wilshire Blvd., Koreatown.
