I visited 3 other places in Santa Monica: Tiato Cafe, the Goodwill store and Tikkun Spa (with Korean inspired spa treatments and temperature based therapeutic rooms). Got a free yogurt at the cafe then drove to a public parking lot (2 hours free). Bought 2 pairs of shorts at Goodwill for less than $7 then enjoyed the spa with my free pass. I love the Himalayan Salt and Jade Rooms plus the free V-Steam Therapy with Mugwort that eases fatigue, headaches, helps fights infections and soothes while strengthening the nervous system. They are offering a $75 monthly membership and I'm going to take advantage of the great deal. (Photos on Flickr).
At noon, I went to The Gateway, a Portal for Growth & Wellness, met Heidi (Hyperbaric Therapist) and Tony Camacho, the director. I got to try the T-Zone Vibration Machine which felt good. They're both very nice and I am glad to work with them soon. I got referred to Heidi by Nadine Winocur, Psy.D (owner of L.A. Hyperbaric Wellness Center) who is friendly, helpful and informative. I'll be teaching Fit-Twist yoga classes weekly at The Gateway.
