Yeo Yong Kuk - SPA1899 - Sulwhasoo Flagship Store Spa - Olivine
Yeo Yong Kuk is a Korean-style spa where you can experience therapy with 600 years of tradition. Before receiving spa treatment, you are given a physical analysis to confirm whether your physiological type is 'taeyang', 'taeeum', 'soyang', 'soeum', and so on. Depending on the result, you are informed of not only the appropriate skin management method for your body, but also what diets are beneficial or harmful, and even suitable exercise methods. You can receive oriental medicine face-packs made from natural medicinal plants, aroma massage based on body type, and more. The traditional beauty treatment here is especially famous, using a specially developed ceramic tool called 'hwasa'.
