Tucked inside the 1 Hotel West Hollywood, Bamford Wellness Spa transports its guests to a dreamy sanctuary where they can indulge in a number of euphoric spa experiences, ranging from relaxing to invigorating.
Upon arrival, guests will find five luxury treatment rooms and a menu consisting of nourishing massages, facials, and daily offerings, including the Bamford Signature Treatment. This signature experience combines carefully targeted ancient techniques that nurture the guest’s well-being, starting with an Epsom salt foot bath followed by a Japanese shiatsu massage, a face and Indian head massage and an assisted yogic breathing exercise.
The Bamford Wellness Facial is also a popular treatment, targeting skin health from the outside in by combining two massage techniques including Gua Shua to ease muscle tension, support lymphatic flow and reduce puffiness.
