The Balinese inspired Ona Spa is a nice little getaway located on Beverly Blvd. A celebrity favorite, Ona is a full service medical day spa focusing on customized services and results oriented treatments that combine the latest technology with ancient traditional wellness practices.
In addition to Eastern and Western style massages Ona also features a Reconnective Healing Procedure. Expanding beyond the realm of Reiki and similar healing techniques the reconnective process reconnects you to the universe and restores the natural balance of your aura. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. However, I tried a 10 minute introductory session and felt the results immediately. With Reiki you feel the heat from the energy and with the reconnective procedure you can actually feel the energy building up in the section of your body that needs it most. It’s definitely worth trying.
Ona also offers other signature procedures such as the Babor Platinum facial, which features the famed Babor skincare line, and the Clarisonic mini facial. Ona is also the only Spa in the U.S. to feature the Ona Slim Cryo-Thermie Treatment. Developed in France, this cellulite reduction treatment comprises five steps to reshape, tone, and firm your thighs, tummy, hips, and arms and it also virtually eliminates the appearance of cellulite. I’ll be signing up for this before next summer.
The spa is dedicated to offering the highest level of beauty and health services so they developed signature treatments for the face and body that feature the Ona skin care line. The products are color-coded for different skin types - orange for sun and newly damaged youthful skin, blue for dehydrated sensitive skin, and green for dull or congested skin. The spa also carries quality products from other vendors. Being an SPF fanatic I tested the natural mineral sunblock collection by Coola. Coola’s moisture-rich products are designed to boost your skin’s own natural immune system. The eco-conscious line contains natural phyto-protectors, certified organic extracts, and age-defying antioxidants and vitamins. The products are paba, paraben, petroleum, and phthalate free and provide a transparent application. Coola’s suncare products are designed for the face, total body, and sport. The sport line didn’t leave any white residue, which I liked. I also liked how soft all the products made my skin feel.
With a focus on ultimate beauty, health, and wellness Ona Spa is a full mind and body experience. In addition to the above services Ona also offers Botox, fillers, and photo rejuvenation, all of which are overseen by Eugenia Shakhnoff, who is a board-certified registered nurse and the assistant medical director at Ona. During your visit you can also indulge in a mani or pedi, get a spray tan, and enjoy the Vichy showers and eucalyptus steam room. Truth be told, it will be heard to return to the real world after a relaxing day at this spa. Be sure to visit Ona’s website and sign up for their Elite Access Membership Club to receive additional incentives and rewards. Ona is located at 7373 Beverly Blvd. L.A. 90036.
