Venturing through the streets of Seoul, I found myself drawn to the high-rise embrace of Oakwood Hotel, a beacon of respite amid the hustle and bustle. Within its grand structure is a hidden oasis known as De Brie Therapy, a 강남안마 parlour celebrated throughout Samsung-dong, Gangnam.
The perfect retreat after a day of shopping at COEX, De Brie Therapy not only welcomes tired shoppers but also pampers guests from the hotel itself. Its location is an enticing convenience that drew me in without a second thought.
Rainy days? No worries! I was delighted to find my journey unhampered by the unpredictable weather, as I traversed the inviting underground pathways leading me directly from the COEX Starfield building. There, I found the welcoming sight of the elevators, an invitation to descend into a world of tranquillity.
Upon descending to the basement of Oakwood Mall, the entrance to De Brie Therapy unfolds before my eyes. As I step in, I’m greeted by the warm glow of comforting lights, and I can’t help but notice the numerous clientele, visiting not only for their famous massages but also for their reputed waxing services.
From sports to aroma massages, their catalogue of services beckons me. With a sense of eager anticipation, I opt for the ‘A Course’, a combination of aroma and sports massage, to rid myself of the residual fatigue from a long day of activities.
What strikes me as endearing is their clear display of prices for all to see. No hidden costs, no surprises. And for an additional 30,000 won, you can upgrade to a hot stone massage – the perfect remedy for those stubborn knots of tension.
The interiors hum with a quiet serenity. Each room tailored for personalized care, complete with cozy lighting that lulls your senses into a calm reprieve. Hygiene takes precedence with the availability of air purifiers and displayed sanitation certifications, further enhancing the sense of comfort.
My senses are tingled by the variety of cosmetics and products displayed – a testament to their commitment to quality. But it was the softness of the massage bed, the sterile robes, and the indoor shoes that truly set the tone for what was to come.
The magic of their service unfolded as I sunk into the heavenly embrace of the massage. The therapist’s skilled hands, coupled with her comforting banter, worked wonders to release my tense muscles. I emerged from the session feeling utterly rejuvenated, the stress of the day a distant memory.
After my session, I was treated to a freshly made tomato juice – not too sweet, just the perfect palate cleanser. It truly was the cherry on top of an already refreshing day.
In the end, De Brie Therapy was more than just a massage parlour. It was a journey into relaxation, a hidden gem in the heart of Gangnam. As I reminisce about my experience, I find myself yearning to share this slice of tranquillity with my parents when they visit Seoul.
For those of you who happen to be guests at the Oakwood Hotel or are shopping around COEX, I wholeheartedly recommend a detour to De Brie Therapy. Embrace the tranquillity, and let your stress melt away, one massage at a time.
One of the most thoughtful amenities offered was the disposable undergarments – a simple touch that spoke volumes about their commitment to hygiene and customer comfort. The thought of not having to worry about my sweaty gym clothes was truly a welcome relief.
The attention to detail continued with the availability of a compact but well-stocked shower facility. Though modest in size, it boasted of all the essentials one might need – from fresh towels to premium toiletries. I appreciated the option to cleanse myself before and after the treatment, it indeed added an extra layer of refreshment.
As I laid down on the plush massage bed, the therapist’s skilled touch immediately started to work its magic on my aching muscles. Each knead, each stroke was a soothing lullaby, calming my overworked body and mind. She seemed to sense exactly where my body held tension, working through every knot with gentle yet firm pressure. Her fingers danced over my skin with the grace of a skilled pianist, coaxing my body to surrender to relaxation.
There was a unique symmetry to her motions – a rhythm, a flow, that felt like a harmonious dance. With every soothing stroke, my tight muscles unraveled, the stress points dissipated, and I felt my energy pathways clear up. Her warm and light-hearted banter further set a comforting tone to the therapy session. The connection was not just physical but emotional as well. I felt seen, heard, and pampered.
Before I knew it, the serene music and dim lighting lulled me into a state of peaceful slumber. I drifted off into dreams tinged with the scent of calming essential oils, and the faint, soothing tunes that filled the room.
Awakening from my peaceful snooze, I was greeted with the friendly face of my therapist and a glass of freshly prepared tomato juice. A perfect balance of tangy and sweet, it was the ideal rejuvenating elixir to end my relaxing therapy session.
The taste of the juice and the lingering sensation of relief from the massage was an experience I knew I wanted to replicate. I also realized that De Brie Therapy would make for a perfect gift to my loved ones. Perhaps, when my parents visit Seoul next, this place would serve as a relaxing detour from the usual tourist hustle.
To anyone staying at the Oakwood Hotel or visiting the nearby COEX, I couldn’t recommend De Brie Therapy more. It’s not just a massage parlor but a sanctuary where you can leave behind your worries, surrender to the skilled hands of their therapists, and emerge feeling lighter and recharged.
This gem in the heart of Gangnam has left me with memories of a beautiful afternoon of tranquility and relaxation. De Brie Therapy – a cocoon of calm in the midst of the bustling city, a must-visit for anyone seeking a touch of peace in their hectic lives.
