Updated 2020: Sadly, Spa Le La has closed.
Life in Los Angeles can be stressful, especially for Moms juggling work and home life, navigating traffic on the 101, and caring for our precious babies. Sure, a spa treatment (or two) would be wonderful, but what are your options when you’re the one in charge of the kiddos and you really need some You Time?
If I were dreaming up a solution, I’d ask for a spa with day care.
Well, wake up, because Spa Le La has come to the rescue. The Studio City spa offers childcare for clients during their treatments, eliminating a barrier to calm.
Moms Need Self Care
I think we can all agree that spending time at a spa can be a relaxing and restorative experience. With all the stress of daily life in Los Angeles, not to mention all the giving, giving, giving we do as Moms, self-care becomes a necessity.
You have to fill up your own well in order to have the resources to help others.
Spa Le La is the brainchild of founder Trina Belton, a new Mom who realized that she and her new mom friends could all use some help caring for themselves while caring for their kids.
She created the spa to solve that problem. Childcare is complimentary while receiving a treatment; Moms can come in, drop off baby, and start relaxing just down the hall.
More Than Massage: Try Naps
Spa Le La offers more than the usual spa. You’ll choose from a menu of pre- and post-natal massage, facials, waxing, nail care, and signature “retreat services,” including an infrared sauna, zero-gravity massage throne, and several options that set them apart from all others: Naps, Baths and Quiet Rooms.
Yes, Spa Le La can watch your baby while you grab some much-needed sleep, have a private soak, or even just have 20 minutes of quiet.
Sounds pretty heavenly to us.
Spa Le La is a spa that offers childcare because they know that motherhood is taxing; it takes so much for us to be able to give to our children, our work, and our other relationships, that recharging time is necessary. And their goal is to make it easy.
