Burke Williams simply massage
Address: 13400 W. Washington Blvd., Marina del Rey, CA
Have you ever needed JUST a massage without all the spa hype? Usually, when you think of getting a massage, you think of “spa day” with the girls, or couple’s massage with the Mr. because going to the spa alone is definitely a faux pas. Then there’s an entire day catered to sauna’s, mud bath’s, and cucumber water, when you only require a deep tissue massage to help you unwind from a hectic week. Please don’t misread this – I love a day at the spa! There’s no better escape from the world of calendar’s and kiddies than a day of facials, reflexology, & hydrotherapy.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being one of the first to experience Burke Williams’ simply massage location in Marina del Rey. The idea behind the simply massage locations is that, like me, with a hectic lifestyle, being a full-time Secretary (Senior Secretary III to be exact), Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Cousin, BFF, you name it, I can never find time to make an all-day trip to a spa. However, what I do have is an hour – hour 1/2 to stop by Burke Williams simply massage for a quick unwind to help me be a better all-of-the-above. Let me just say, I went shopping at Costco (across the street) before going to my session. Ha!

The ambience in the location was very relaxing. The smell was delightful, the paint was a beautiful light turquoise with different hues of blue to bring in the closeness of the ocean. There are also Burke Williams products for purchase if you’re into their skin care line. My typical routine is Neutrogena (bar soap) & Ponds Dry Skin Cream so…I will not go in depth on their products right now. hmmm…maybe I should try them out?
Upon receiving my massage, my masseuse (male) was very friendly & welcoming. The room was dimly lit, the bed & covers were heated! *sigh* Quietude! Just me, my warm covers, my masseuse & all my worries at a halt. I definitely plan to becoming a member of Burke Williams Simply Massage. I don’t think I can find a better way to spend $59 per month. It’s cheaper than my $5 a day starbucks habit at $150 a month. OMG! Was I really paying that much for coffee? that explains a lot.
