The Best Unexpected Gift
This past week I had the most unexpected, yet amazing gift to rejuvenate my body - a massage at the Burke Williams Spa in Santa Monica.
It was my first time visiting the spa and could not believe the vast amount of amenities and size of the location. Upon arrival, its very unassuming as there's only a small street sign that says Burke Williams, however, after taking the elevator up to the main level - the spa transports you into an oasis amongst the busy city.
I was greeted by a welcoming reception desk where someone was waiting to tour me through the spa. Given that this location is in the heart of Santa Monica, I was blown away by how large it was - there had to be well over 25 rooms on multiple levels. One of the best parts next to the upcoming massage was the ability to use the sauna, steam room, whirlpool and solarium to relax before / after your massage - which I took full advantage of by the way!
Time for the massage, I had a deep tissue sports massage which was everything I needed on that day. My body was feeling worn out from the challenging workout I did the night before as well as a significant amount of travel and stress from the holidays. In the past, I've had massage therapists who just go through the motions - this was nothing like that at all. My masseuse was super knowledgable and really in tune with why I was feeling extreme tightness in my left trap and low back. She even gave me some things to work on following the massage which helped so much over the past few days
If you're in need of any ideas for a last minute gift for the sports lover in your life or even a rejuvenating day for yourself, I highly recommend visiting a Burke Williams! It was so relaxing and a totally unexpected gift that I really enjoyed!
I hope you have the happiest of holidays!
All the Best,
