Located in historic Larchmont Village in Los Angeles, the Larchmont Sanctuary Spa is a true sanctuary and escape from the city which surrounds it. The staff invites you to “Disconnect to Reconnect”. They also explain that their “unique indoor-outdoor boutique spa was constructed from a 100-year old home and blessed by nine Tibetan monks from the Garden Shartse Monastery to create the most intimate, nurturing, and spiritual environment.” Our pick is the Illuminating Body Detox Treatment. Lasting from 90-110 minutes, the three-step experience works your entire body from a detoxifying scalp massage down to a Himalayan salt scrub foot massage with a Hungarian Moor mud wrap in between. All of this is followed with Shea butter creme to stimulate the lymphatic system and release toxins.
