News from the Montrose Shopping Park

Next time you are walking past Spa Pura (2270 Honolulu) slow down and step inside. From the outside you see what looks like a simple, well done store front. What you may not realize is there is a three floor, 7,000 square foot, state of the art spa inside! Owner Michelle Ju is a young, wealthy, attractive woman who has been very successful in real estate. She opened Spa Pura because she has a passion for bringing the finest spa experience to our community. Everything inside is brand new and  thoughtfully done, with impeccable taste. The moment you walk through the door everything says “relax,” from  the surroundings, to the soft music, to the fresh smell. Spa director Shelby Yoshioka and her staff further enhance this by making  graciousness and hospitality of prime importance. Shelby grew up in La Cañada and attended Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.
Now what’s on “the menu” at Spa Pura? They have written a gourmet booklet describing their many treatments. Today I am going to introduce you to something exclusive to Spa Pura alone. You are not going to find anything like this anywhere else in this area, or maybe all of L.A. for that matter. It’s called “ The Signature Deluxe Korean Scrub.” This treatment is only done by Mrs. Kim who has been doing it for 30 years. I’m talking experience here. The SDKS is 80 minutes of total escape. It encompasses a full body scrub, aromatic seaweed body cleanse, Kerstin Florian Aromatherapy massage, essential oil scalp massage, facial mask, aromatherapy shampoo, and lastly a body emulsion treatment. I have experienced  this myself and I must share that afterwards your skin feels so clean and soft. It’s amazing! This treatment is normally $130. Very reasonable for all that’s offered.  But since you took the time to read this column we have a very special offer for you. If you try Spa Pura now through Jan. 10, you will receive 50% off on any treatment. Just call at (818) 249-7872 and tell them you are a Crescenta Valley Weekly reader.
I could go on and on about their facials, advanced skin care, girls day out spa party facili ties, Lisa Hoffman skin care line, charity donations and commitment to the community but I’ll save that for another day. In the meantime treat yourself to Spa Pura, www.myspapura.com, this new year. You will be glad you did!
