My neck and back tension no longer remains after the right pressure is applied; I have my monthly regimen.

I wasn't awake to capture the skincare routine applied to my skin, however the BEST facial experience.

My flight delay to Oakland from Utah was a THORN experience, however ending my night at with a manicure/pedicure was a ROSE of a time!

I really enjoy the Specialized Pedicure service as well as the convenience of the online booking.

I finally found a spa with integrity, one that won't try to sell a procedure if it is not the right one for me. I have never once been disappointed in my experience there or services received. I look forward to this part of my week as a little mini-vacation. I recommend them most warmly!
