Nestled between Nordstrom and Sears at the Brea Mall, its inviting ambiance of trickling streams and tranquil colors make this day spa a gateway to serenity before massage therapists even begin their work. And speaking of that tension burrowed within, the Glen offers four ways to relaxation, including heated stones, prenatal, cozy couples and custom. Whether for 50- or 80-minute sessions, let skillful massage therapists slacken the stresses of the day; for $25 more, they’ll get into the deep tissue. Afterward, take a dip in a hot tub or, better yet, lounge in the cozy solarium, where a fireplace and high-arched ceilings make it hard to leave—really hard!
