 Mandara Spa

Over the years, Mandara's founder had a vision to create a place of great beauty and harmony, a place where individuals who shared a common desire to be of service for the healing of people could come together to offer their gifts. She wanted it to house an energy of tranquility and beauty so the senses could be renewed, to be a peaceful place where people could reconnect with their essence. 

This vision has evolved into Mandara Skin & Body Spa. 

We would love to know what you think about us


Laura Hughes

Founder / Esthetician

    Laura has 15 years of combined experience in the spa and esthetics industry. She began her career in the healing arts as a massage therapist. Over the years she felt a strong desire to learn more about the holistic realm of skin care. This has become her passion and calling. Her main objective in the treatment room is to approach skincare from a body, mind and spirit view point, treating the person not the symptom.

       She believes in educating her guests not just about healthy skincare choices, but also about healthy life choices. She has spent years learning different massage modalities and is always incorporating relaxing, anti-aging, detoxifying and energy healing techniques into her treatments to make them as effective as possible. Laura's facials go beyond what you would expect in a typical session. It's about reconnecting to your inner-self and finding that beauty within to allow it to shine inside and out. We must nurture our spirit and embrace the beauty of aging.


Laura and her team of healing caregivers, invites all who feel drawn into the healing space of Mandara to come and allow some time away from the pressures of life and to breathe in the sacredness of self care and love.
