Laka Skin Care & Spa
It’s not just the soft glow of candlelight, the array of floral sprays, or even the pampering spa treatments that keep clients coming back to Laka Skin Care & Spa. They come for the salon’s holistic treatments, backed by the science of Nobel Prize–winning research. The salon’s staff is trained in everything from facial reflexology to the salon’s three signature facials.
What really sets the spa’s treatments apart are the optional add-ons. The house brand of aromatherapy, 21 Drops, infuses facials and massages with healing essential oils to entertain noses. Meanwhile, in the hot-stone detox room, heated amethyst mats detoxify both body and mind while clients relax on them. Sessions intend to increase metabolism and blood circulation while relieving muscle tension.
