LA Bliss Spa's staff soothe tired skin and frayed nerves by providing a friendly environment where clients can let go of every concern except their need for pampering. Skilled aestheticians perfect skin with a menu of facials that includes custom exfoliation and pore-cleaning variations. Facials use products that diminish signs of aging such as lines and pigmentation in shades not in compliance with the official human color wheel. To purge the body of stress, the spa offers a number of different massage styles, as well as mud wraps and detoxifying body scrubs that are designed to provide unique results. Massage therapists unfurl tension and nourish frames with soothing oils while skin care professionals at the spa use Dermalogica products. Therapists also utilize the healing properties of heated stones to relieve muscle discomfort and release endorphins back into the wild.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Professional massage using a combination of Swedish massage, Thai massage, and hot-stone therapy. Thai massage involves stretching and acupressure to promote vascular- and energy-flow. Swedish massage is a more relaxing technique that incorporates oil and smooth pressure. Hot-stone therapy uses heated stones to treat specific problem areas needing heat and direct pressure.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
While living and growing up in Thailand, I liked getting massages from my auntie. I learned Thai massage and realized that I am very good at it.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Several clients have told me that I gave them the best massages of their lives. Those comments made me feel good about what I am doing. My massage teachers also told me that I have naturally good hands for massage.
At Blue Sand Mind & Body, a group of practitioners comes together to ply its signature trade: traditional Thai massage. Generally considered more rigorous than other modalities, Thai massage mixes stretching maneuvers with deep and targeted pressure. For those who prefer a more relaxing massage, the staff is equally proficient at Swedish, Hawaiian lomilomi, and hot-stone massage, among other treatments. Like a really good wide receiver, Blue Sand is open every day of the week and caters to those with busy schedules by staying open until 8 p.m. each day.
