Tomoko Spa in Beverly Hills is a Japanese oasis that is a delectable five-star experience from start to finish and one of my favorite spas in California.
As soon as you walk through the door you are divested of your shoes and put into Japanese slippers, and guided into a minimalist but cozy waiting area where you are presented with a tray filled with tea, water, and a sweet treat to start your decompression from the outside world.
Once you enter your large massage room, which is fitted with a shower or bath, you change into your kimono robe and perch on the sofa to begin your session.
The signature Tomoko massage, which I highly recommend, begins with a 15-minute detox foot cleanse and massage, which the therapist administers, knelt before you. (Just this was enough to zen me out!) And then on to what I can only describe as one of the best massages I have ever received.
Using a combination of Swedish and Japanese techniques, oiled palm strokes and circular thumb movements, and the addition of warm stones to the treatment enables the release of all tension, soothes aching muscles, and rebalances the body’s ailing systems.
There are also romantic couple’s massage options for you and your S.O. It’s no wonder Tomoko is a hidden favorite of stars like Jessica Alba and Cash Warren.
If you want pure relaxation in a discreet and warm setting, experience one of the most uplifting massages ever, Tomoko Spa is a must! It’s no coincidence that this insomniac had the best night’s sleep in months after my treatment. … it’s the best spa in Beverly Hills!
