And you thought that I never leave downtown Kirkland, didn't ya? Here's a little gem I wanted to share. MOD Skin and Body is unassumingly tucked into a strip mall between LA Fitness and QFC on Juanita Drive. Not relaxed yet? You will be. Owners Polly Tabares (photo) and Clair Gehrt have carefully put together their space to have a serene comfort and warmth that will greet you with welcoming arms. They even made the chevron wood wall behind Polly in the photo!
Down the hall, my awaiting room was a thin and dimly lit space with a giant wood dresser and soft sheets on the bed. I would spend the next 80 minutes zoning in and out of consciousness as Sarah's magical hands applied layers of lotions to my face, dècolletè, hands and even my feet. That's right- no joke. I was not dreaming, this facial actually started with a foot rub and warm wraps on my tired paws. We cleansed, we microdermed, we exfoliated and extracted and nourished and moisturized. And at the very end was my all-time favorite (I need to teach my kids to do this for me)....the head rub. The one where the person is not scared to stick their hands into your hair and use the pads of their fingers to press on those pressure spots on your scalp. Really good stuff.
MOD has a great lineup of massage therapy offerings and also body/facial/skincare treatments including botox, fillers, and laser services. They also carry Bare Minerals, which I use and love and was happy to discover I will no longer have to drive to BSquare to purchase. Polly has been in the industry for over 20 years and loves to educate clients, while being able to offer clinical services in a comfortable environment. Spa hours are Mon-Fri 9am-7pm, Sat 9-5, Sun 10-4. 425-406-8455, firstname.lastname@example.org
