This is the first guide to the ethnic spas of Los Angeles, which are exploding in popularity. The expert authors demystify Asian and European massages and spa treatments and lead readers to their favorite destinations across Los Angeles County. They explain the why, what and how of Korean, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and other ethnic spa treatments; and lead readers to their favorite spas. Includes tips on what to expect, how to handle the language barriers, when and what to tip, even where to eat and shop while you're in the neighborhood. The Spa Less Traveled is a beautifully designed book illustrated with color photography, making it as much a gift as a guide.
