The Kura Door

Salt Lake City's holistic Japanese day spa, The Kura Door, provides ancient Eastern relaxation practices in order to provide the modern consumer with a revitalizing day spa experience. Begin a journey at The Kura Door by lounging in a soft cotton kimono and sipping hot green tea before entering the traditional Japanese ofuro bath, enhanced with herbal elements. Signature massages at the spa include the Samurai, a deep-tissue massage designed to improve flexibility and the Japanese Stone Massage, in which summer or winter essential oils are applied to alternately hot and cool stones rubbed over the body. The Kura Door also specializes in body wraps and offers ten treatments including the Volcanic Ash Ritual, a 60-minute treatment in which the body is painted with strokes of volcanic ash and China clay in order to detoxify the skin. Salt Lake City's Kura Door Day Spa is a natural escape—all products used are 100% organic and everything from the kimono to the bamboo floor is made from natural materials.
