If you need a quick getaway from your mother-in-law and are in the West Hollywood, California, you must go to a hidden hand and foot spa located off the beaten path.

Nestled in upscale West Hollywood, L.A. Vie L’Orange is a fantastic manicure and pedicure spa that is not the usual noisy crowed nail salon.   Their motto holds true to their salon:  indulge, pamper and rejuvenate.

Once you arrive, you are greeted with a warm welcome and offered something to drink.  After you choose your nail color, you are promptly escorted into your peaceful wicker surrounded private station.  L.A. Vie L’Orange has a no-cell phone policy which is great since they have a large waterfall feature that creates the most amazing serene ambiance.

If you go, I would recommend to get the works and ask for their signature orange peel treatment.  First they soak your feet into a warm bath of hot stones, orange peels and herbs.  After the soak, callous remover serum is generously smeared on the bottom surface of your feet and a gentle callous removing wand is gently rubbed to your skin.  Your feet nearly tickle with laughter after the other steps such as the alpha-hydroxy sea scrub, hot oil massage, paraffin wax and cucumber heel cream are applied.

L.A Vie L’Orange is one of my favorite getaways in West Hollywood, so if you need a quicky touch up or want to getaway for an hour or so, definitely take the time to find this hidden gem.

If you are traveling with your mother-in-law in New York City and need a few hours break from her, I would recommend going to a spa. Not just any run-of-the-mill spa either.

Of course they have some the basic massages such as deep tissue, lymphatic drainage & reflexology, but they also have some unique ones as well like the Guerlain Imperiale Massage, the 4-Hand Imperiale Massage & the Pre & Postnatal Body Therapy Massage.

The Guerlain Spa has the most amazing cutting-edge facials, invigorating body sublimation techniques, and some intensive hand and foot therapies. This spa is not just for women either. This spa has 5 different skin therapies for men as well.
