THERAPISTS AND HYPNOTISTS ON CALL ONLY IN HOLLYWOOD: That Come to You..
www.handsblue.com Hollywood is all about comfort, often the chauffeured kind. You can order food, prepared and delivered according to your most demanding needs. Personal shoppers run booming businesses, where clients select denim and clothing from samples brought to their living rooms. And now, spas come on order as well, to your office, home or hotel: Meet InSpaLA.
The brainchild of Colleen McClafferty, InSpaLA opened just last year, gathering together over forty of LA’s top spa and wellness therapists in a mobile network. She got the idea of taking their spa services on the road after having repeatedly heard how her mover-and-shaker clients were too busy to come to her. “People love to be pampered without the stress of the day spa experience, driving, parking, staff and facility issues,” says McClafferty. “I used to manage a top Santa Monica Spa, so I know the complaints well. With traffic and gas prices rising, our services are even in higher demand.”It was the same for most of her therapist friends, who have been in the industry for many years. InSpaLA’s three top services are massage, nails, and skin care (facials/makeup).
“We believe that these mobile spa services are so popular because we take the stress out of your relaxation,” McClafferty explains. The services, which can be ordered online, are especially popular for parties. McClafferty estimates that the company works 1-3 parties a week, including larger affairs for production and event companies.
“We did a party recently in Hermosa Beach for 20 women, a bridal shower,” she offers as an example. “We arrived to a mostly empty beach house and took over. Everything from flowers and decor to candles and food.” In addition to ordering, picking up and plating sushi for the 20 guests, they set up massage tables on the rooftop, where the girls took turns getting their massages, while nail and skin care services were being done inside.
“The party was a huge success,” McClafferty says. Guests, she says, usually wear comfortable lounge clothing, and slippers or flip-flops for an added touch of comfort. On top of food, décor, candles, aromatherapy, foot spa, fresh flowers and guest gifts, InSpaLA will even supply the DJ. ”For parties, the host simply provides the space. We do the rest.
Our therapists bring equipment, supplies and an InSPArations experience kit, which includes music, aromatherapy spray, candles/incense, eye pillows.” Other therapeutic goodies include tea, granola as well as citrus water and spa bath salts for an on- the-spot aromatherapy bath. InSpaLA can also create a Zen Den, with Buddha statues, candle centerpieces, fountains, flowers, tapestries, food and music. “Or,” says McClafferty, “we’ll send out personal trainers and even hypnotherapists.” How’s that for inSparation?

At Home Maternity Pampering Can’t Make It to The Spa? Have It Come To You
By Ann Brown
Don’t feel like heading out to a spa but still want to get a manicure, pedicure or even a pre-natal massage? Well, have the spa come to you. There are several services that offer mobile spas. Here area a few and what they offer. ”
Don’t worry about not having the proper products at home either. The mobile spa will bring all products to your home. And while mobile spas provide personalized service, they don’t always cost much more. “SPA Parties prices are comparable to going to a stationary spa. Some treatments tend to be slightly higher just because we are providing a premium service that comes to you, in your home or location of choice.” Adds Colleen McClafferty of INspaLA Mobile Wellness Spa (310-809-9292; www.InspaLA.com), which specializes in providing holistic spa services the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. “Home Spa services run in the range of your high-end Day Spas. At INspaLA.com we offer ways to gather with friends for Wellness Circles, making services much more affordable.”
Also, in most cases space isn’t a problem. “For most spa services you just need enough space for a massage table. If space is limited some services can be done on the bed,” says McClafferty. A good rule of thumb is to allow enough space for each treatment area as you would for a chaise lounge with some walk around each. Besides massages, many pregnant women like to get hand and foot treatments, including manicure, pedicures and reflexology, which is a massage is applied to specific areas on the hands and feet to promote a response from areas far removed from the tissue stimulated via the nervous system.
INspaLA Mobile Wellness Spa has something for the whole family. This mobile service, in addition to spa services, also offers Parent Training classes for $125 and hour; Kid Coaching ($125) to help your child “overcome hardships; improve self esteem; social skill improvement; improve undesirable behaviors; improve family relationships; supportive academics and athletics; and positive outlook enhancement.” They also have Family Counseling as well, which could come in hand for expanding families.
