Spring is here and to get you rejuvenated for the season after a long hard year, Bellevue downtown’s Yuan Spa is open for some much-needed self-care. While the pandemic is still ongoing, they are taking Covid-19 precautions to keep guests safe. If you are ready for a day of relaxation, Yuan Spa has you covered with many spa treatments to choose from.

Yuan Spa guests can experience decadent massage therapy, advanced skincare, and herbal body treatments gathered from around the globe and guided by Yuan’s highly qualified therapists. There are 13 treatment rooms that are spread out between the two floors to pamper guests from head to toe. 

“At Yuan Spa, we believe that optimal wellness comes from embracing the mind, body, and spirit. Health and wellness are reflections of our commitment to creating a balance between expanding and restoring our human energy. The work “Yuan” is a Chinese word meaning “the source”–the wellspring, the origin–the source of understanding, the source of energy, wellness, and Qi.”

– Zhiqin Zhang, Founder of Yuan Spa

COVID-19 Precautions

Yuan Spa has been doing all that it can to go above and beyond following the state-wide precautions to keep guests safe during their visit. Hydrotherapy (hot pool, cool pool, cold rinse, steam room, and dry cedar sauna) is now open by reservation only and at reduced capacity. It can be added onto services or booked on its own.  

Yuan Spa has taken measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all guests. Currently, they are operating at 50% occupancy and the hydrotherapy experience is open with reservations required and for hour-long sessions. Learn more about COVID-19 updates on their website.

I had the opportunity to indulge in the Yuan Signature Chinese Body Scrub Ritual during my visit to the spa this month. This was the first time I’ve received a treatment like this and felt pampered from head to toe! The treatment is 110 minutes with a brief break in between the scrub and application of moisturizing oils. In order to get the full effects of the body scrub, it was recommended to do a steam session prior to the treatment. I was thoroughly pleased with the results and I felt detoxified with extremely soft skin. For anyone who has been curious about trying out a body scrub, I highly recommend it!
