Ladywell Spa is turning one soon. I wanted to make sure all my readers and friends have heard about this fabulous oasis, so I’m hosting a giveaway (see below).
This women-only, woman-owned spa in Greenwood is the newest addition to the Seattle spa community, offering relaxation rooms and pools to all.
They offer two whirlpools (one hot, one tepid) and a small cold plunge pool with waterfall. You have to dip yourself down to submerge yourself in the cold plunge pool (I’m a wuss when it comes to cold so have only gone waist deep), but not every spa in town offers a cold plunge!
Beyond whirlpools and a steam room they also have two sauna options: the traditional dry cedar sauna and a pink Himalayan salt sauna which will warm your core and help you sweat out toxins. The Salt Sauna is fantastic – I feel warm in my bones after laying in there for 5-10 minutes and the pink colors are soft and calming. Their spacious relaxation and stretching room offers a swinging chair that is perfect to curl up in to feel a million miles away from the rest of the world. There’s space to stretch or do yoga between therapies, tea is complimentary (not the case in all the spas in the area).
I had the chance to try out Ladywell’s signature sugar scrub and rinse during my visit. Incredibly relaxing washes bookend the treatment (the therapist pours pitchers of warm water over your body as you lie on the table – this is my new favorite thing! It’s really unlike anything else and feels incredible). The exfoliation of the sugar is great too and I had great communication with my therapist to let her know I’m a bit on the sensitive side (something I worry about with body work, if a therapist isn’t a good listener). She checked in throughout the treatment and I was surprised to find that I could take more scrubbing action than I originally thought (perhaps sugar is better than salt?)
Feeling shy? While birthday suits are recommended, those a bit more body-shy are welcome to don their swimsuits (something not allowed in other women-only spas in town).
Open on Sundays (and Tuesday – Saturdays too!): While a big spa in the area is CLOSED on Sundays, you can get your relaxation rolling here. Ladywell is open 10am – 10pm Tuesday – Sundays (last entrance is at 9).
Here’s how to save on your next visit: Mention “Seattle Pockets” for $11 off your regularly priced ($36) entry fee. I hear they also have discounts for groups of 6+ (not sure the details on that, but will update when I get them). Ladywell Spa also offers an Early Bird Spa Entry $25 Tuesday-Friday before 2pm.

Disclaimer: Seattle Pockets was gifted a free entry and signature salt scrub. As always, free does not influence my opinions. This giveaway is provided by Seattle Pockets out of pocket – I wanted to pay it forward!
