how to do atlanta – jeju sauna

The communal bath house is a relaxing tradition that’s found in many cultures, but most Americans would raise an eyebrow at the notion of visiting a 24-hour Korean spa. Rest assured, it’s not that kind of affair, even though the hot-pink neon signage out front might make you think otherwise.

$25 gets you a locker and unlimited access to the facilities at Jeju, plus a standard-issue, one-size-fits-all short set that evokes images of Logan’s Run. If lounging au naturale is your thing, the gender-separate locker rooms have showers, steam rooms, and soaking pools, and for an extra fee, you can have one of the older lady masseuses smack you up, flip you, and rub you down.

You might opt to literally spend the night in the large common area, which boasts 7 different therapeutic saunas – like the Jade room and the Charcoal Room, a large swimming pool, and a quick-serve Korean snack bar. Just a few hours at Jeju makes for a happy ending you don’t have to be ashamed of.

    This is my spot. I love coming here. Every time I feel stressed, I come here to get a massage. They give the best massages in the world. The food is not so great, but you leave weighing 5 pounds less.

    All I can say is WOW! JeJu is an Awesome getaway. My friends and I visited for the first time on Friday night around 8 p.m. and didn’t leave until 2 a.m. When we walked in we didn’t know what to expect so we attempted to put on our bathing suits. That was a definite NO, NO. The staff surrounded us as if we had stolen something. We were told to take off all of our clothes in order to enter the spa. After the initial shock, we obliged. There were Fat, Skinny, Old, Young, Black, White, Blue and green woman. All walking around in the nude. Each of us signed up for a Body Scrub. That in itself was an experience. Can you imagine 12 to 15 naked women lined up side by side on gurney type beds with there legs spread eagle and being rubbed every which a way. Literally, they scrubbed every nook and cranny. One of the ladies received a “hip bath”. With this service you are placed on a small pot (sort of like a child potty) with a hold in it. Underneath the hole is a bowl of 30 different herbs. It’s placed on a hot plate and the steam from the herbs are directed to the vaginal area. Again, you’re naked. From there we headed for the common area. In this area there are roughly 7 or 8 iglos. Each are designed to detox different area of the body. They were all absolutley beautiful. One of them was lined in Gold and Silver, another in Charcoal, and so on and so on. My description so far is only a minuet part of the JeJu experience. All I can say is that it was Wonderful and I would recommend it to all ladies. You really have to be open minded and comfortable in your own skin in order to truly appreciate the experience.
