Laka Skin Care and Spa

It's been a self-made birthday tradition of mine to have lunch with my family and then take off for a relaxing massage.  Not just any massage, but 90 minutes of pure bliss at Laka Skin Care and Spa.  I've been a fan of the spa, a hidden gem located on Ward, for three years now and it's in my top 3 spas that I recommend to anyone that asks.

Why celebrate with a massage?  Because it's the only true "me" time and you deserve some.  For the duration of your massage, the therapist will focus on just you and your needs.  I love spending time with my family on my birthday, but I also think it's important to treat myself to a little bit of relaxation without them too.  I'm pretty sure they agree when they are greeted with the version of me that is recharged and refreshed.

When you enter Laka Skin Care and Spa, you will be greeted and taken to a small changing room.  You can leave your valuables in a locker and hold the key with you.  Then you will be escorted to a waiting area with comfy oversized chairs to begin relaxing.  My massage therapist, Tiffany, arrived shortly to take me to the treatment room.  After we talked specifics about areas that were bothering me or any concerns I had, she left me to get settled on the massage table.  During the massage, she made sure to check with me how I liked the pressure.  I used to be too intimidated to speak up, but now I know that if I don't want to be disappointed, I better say something if I'm not happy.

Tiffany was awesome!  She delivered just the right amount of pressure and worked her magic over my tired back and body.  The peppermint aromatherapy oils were both soothing and rejuvenating.  I liked that she used hot towels on my hands and feet at the end so there was no oily residue.

After my amazing massage, I was led to their private dining table where I enjoyed water, peach tea, and their famous black sesame ice cream.  You too, will have to restrain yourself from asking for more ice cream.

Laka offers a variety of services and have both male and female massage therapists on staff.  Other spa services include facials, scalp care, and spa packages.  Guests will be happy to know that Laka offers a loyalty rewards program that give members special pricing. 
Service here is excellent and on point.  Life can get hectic and Laka strives to be the solution by providing their guests a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit.

Thank you to Laka Skin Care and Spa for the complimentary birthday massage.  All gratuities were paid on my own.  All opinions are entirely my own.
