Whoever sang, “Ohh, heaven is a place on earth,” was right. The Yi-spa in Berlin, a full service massage parlor complete with exotic body treatments, Thai-style massages and aromatherapy, claims they can show you the way.
Located in the center of Berlin-Mitte, the city’s historical core, Yi-spa provides a haven for those interested in nothing else but the superlatives in life. Their certified Asian staff specializes in Thai-style therapy, ensuring customers receive celebrity-style treatment, and as close as you can get to heavenly bliss.
Besides being wrapped in bananas and scrubbed with chocolate, Yi Spa has a whole host of other decadent treatments. With a menu that features Lomi Lomi massages and reflexology therapy as main dishes and facial treatments on the side, your body and mind are guaranteed to leave revitalized and ready for more.
The common conception of spas usually involves soothing white walls, scenic paintings and soft music. With architecture as unusual as its color scheme, Yi-spa begs to differ. Their black and hot pink motif and sporadically punctured walls have dismissed them from the natural, minimalist spas. And instead of a soundtrack of chirping birds and flowing water, their deep- space techno beats have transformed ‘peace and quiet’ into sassy tranquility.
The mind-body rejuvenation is summed up in their motto, by founder (philosopher, artist, and poet) Khalil Gibran, “I had a second birth when my soul and my body loved one another and were married.” Eight decades later, his teachings and legacy are being carried on in a 120 square-meter little oasis in Berlin.
