So today, my friends and I headed to King Sauna, with every intention to get our scrub on. We arrived and we're checked in with an admission fee. They provide these pajama-looking outfits for your to change into (sans underwear) and off we went to explore this multi-floor facility. It's co-ed but they are women's only areas for decency BUT once in the women's only area: It's all butt-bearing nakedness and no one is shy! So if you're going with friends, get ready to get to know them REAL well. I sure did! :)
We booked our body scrubs and was told to return a couple of hours later to shower. We then headed to the dry saunas/grottos to sweat out our toxins. They have multiple rooms, with different stones/materials which is supposed to be good for your skin. Finally after enjoying a freshly squeezed carrot juice, we head off to strip down to bare nakedness. We giggled into the showers and hopped into the hot tub with other naked women. We alternated between the hot tub, cold tub and the steam room and finally got our numbers called. A little korean auntie, decked in a black bra and pantie, led me to a room where there are beds where the scrubbing takes place. So first of, you're naked, butt-naked & the auntie instructs you in lie on the bed and they rinse you off and begin the scrubbing. They scrub EVERY inch of your body and every crevice. Layers of dead skin come off, and I mean layers...it's kinda gross but kinda nice at the same time.
An hour later, I'm done with a new layer of skin. Soft and smooth like a baby's butt and probably a shade lighter. HOLY CRAP! I loved every minute of it. My friends and I are convinced we need to do this regularly! :) So, if you haven't exfoliated in a while, get thee to a Korean Bath House and get your scrub on.
