Sometimes all you want to do is relax and unwind and what better way to that than to take a trip to the spa, but not just any spa, let’s take a trip to the Korean Spa and relax the day away. With so many different sauna rooms to try, we might even want to spend the night in order to try out everything. Here are a few of the various spa rooms that we may encounter. Each of these rooms serve a different purpose. They are meant to help relax in but they also help in improving skin and overall health.

Here are some of the room in Korean Spa:

Red Clay is known to have many benefits for the skin such as improving the overall complexion and soothing irritated skin. People with sensitive skin benefit the most from this type of room.

When visiting a spa, visitors often comment that the gem room is the prettiest of the rooms and its easy to see why. These rooms can be made from gold, amethyst, rose quartz, and other crystals. They crystals are very pleasing to the eye but they also each have their own properties which helps improves the general condition of the visitor. Crystals have been used for ailments such as headaches and dizziness but according to Korean Spas, they came used to reduce wrinkles as well.

While every spa differs, these are a couple of common poultice rooms that you may encounter. Poultice rooms are the dry room saunas at the versus the pool areas that are also common at spas. These rooms vary by temperature but can be as hot as 170°F or 76°C. Sometimes they can even be hotter than that. So, it is quite important to take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water in between jumping from room to room. Most importantly remember to relax. The whole purpose of this spa trip was to unwind so don’t be afraid to drift off to sleep once your in zone. Now after spending all that time in these various spa rooms, you should be leaving the spa relaxed, content and glowing.


Have you ever been to a Korean Spa before? If you have what was your favorite room and why? If you haven’t been to one yet, which room are you looking forward to the most? Personally, I have yet to experience a Korean Spa. However, I am looking forward to experiencing the gem rooms the most simply because I think they would be very pretty to see in person.
