A spa treatment is one of the best ways to ease life’s daily tensions. Many commercial spas and salons, however, can be overpriced or lack in privacy. The perfect solution? Treat yourself to the relaxing experience and renewing environment of a home spa. Be inspired by these sisters and transform your bathroom into a soothing space where the art of pampering is an everyday luxury, not an occasional indulgence.
Dr. Mariam Kim Kieu of Bellevue, Washington is a proud home spa patron. A spa enthusiast, she often visits Korean and Chinese spas and enjoys spa treatments from salons. “When the weather is dreary and cold, it is nice to relax in a warm sauna,” says Dr. Kieu. However, she found some commercial steam rooms and saunas odorous or substandard. By installing a gracious spa in her home, Dr. Kieu notes that she also wanted to access the spa experience “on my own time, at my own leisure.”
