With Thanksgiving around the corner, many of us are running around planning and prepping meals, grabbing essential ingredients, working out seating charts, getting a head-start on holiday shopping…..well, just plain RUNNING around! For once, don’t you just wish time would STOP so you can take care of YOU?
It’s time to be THANKFUL for some quality “ME” time this Thanksgiving — I found the PERFECT recipe for escape! (Plus a killer Black Friday SPA deal below.)
If you are looking for a unique, deeply relaxing ritual to “take you away” from the holiday hustle and bustle, look no further than an Ofuro Tub Soak at DuBunne Spa Club and Massage Centre in Torrance, CA.
Located in Torrance for over 30 years, DuBunné Spa Club & Massage Centre combines a menu of tension-taming services in a “no attitude” atmosphere. Even with a combined indoor/outdoor square footage of over 10,000 square feet, DuBunne is a boutique-style spa, offering a full array of the latest spa treatments and amenities, including couples packages (there’s ALWAYS room for two.)
Yes, you can soak side-by-side with your honey (or a friend), as DuBunne Spa boasts TWO Ofuro tubs.
Originating in Japan, the Ofuro Tub Soak is a time for quiet thought and reflection. Furo are part of the Japanese ritual of bathing, not meant for washing, but rather for relaxing and warming oneself. There are no jets, so it’s not like a hot tub, and it’s not a “Hot Tub Time Machine,” but it indeed is a ritual so relaxing, it DOES indeed seem to stop time.
An Ofuro tub is much deeper than a conventional tub and lets you sit naturally upright — there’s a “shelf” in the tub for this purpose. It really is a one-of-a-kind and extremely relaxing experience! (I can’t seem to find any other spa in Los Angeles that offers an Ofuro Tub Soak – the closest that comes to it is an Onsen tub, which is also a Japanese tub that is deeper than a conventional tub made of copper – NOTE: it’s MORE expensive than DuBunne’s Ofuro Tub Soak!)
DuBunne’s Ofuro tubs are in an outdoor, private, tropical-inspired pavilion – the perfect tranquil environment for this 25 minute service. There are never any harsh chemicals or chlorine used in the water. Before you soak, choose from three organic bath salts to enhance your Ofuro Tub Soak: Lavender, Muscle Soak (to soothe aches and pains) or Harmony. The salts are extremely fragrant, and with the peaceful, meditative music being piped into the pavilion, you couldn’t ask for a more relaxing experience.
DuBunne staff will bring you your heart’s desire of beverages to sip on during the soak – I recommend a nice, hot peppermint tea, or why not go “full-out” pamper and sip champagne while your troubles melt away? Did I say I recommended the tea? Scratch that, I DEFINITELY recommend the complimentary champagne!
Apparently, celebrities are finding out about Ofuro tubs and gobbling them up, i.e., buying them and installing them in their homes. According to Dwell.com, Jennifer Aniston chose an Ofuro tub from Zen BathWorks when she remodeled her house. Who WOULDN’T want a luxurious deep tub that allows full body relaxation and mental rejuvenation in their home?
You can experience a 25 minute Ofuro tub soak at DuBunne for $35.00 per person without a service, and for $10 per person if you get a service of $50 or more. Ofuro tub soaks are free to Club Members of the spa with any service of $50.00 or more.
And don’t forget, with your tub soak, you are able to use the spa area, which includes showers with complimentary body scrubs, and DuBunne’s Eucolyptus steam room, so you can exfoliate, detoxify and rejuvenate. The spa area is also stocked with essentials like shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hair products for you to sample. You can even sit in common areas and enjoy curling up on the couch with a good book, or enjoy the afternoon in a lush patio garden. AHHHHHHH.
Part of the “jet set?” DuBunne also offers hydrotherapy tub services for one or two. And if you’re part of a couple, you will LOVE the couples rooms complete with fireplace and couples services.
