Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa was voted Best Spa in Olympia by readers of The Weekly Volcano. Located in Lacey, the spa offers facials, massages and hair removal services.

"I think we stand out because we have an amazing team of very dedicated front desk associates, massage therapists and estheticians who take pride in their work," said Jenifer Moore, spa manager and master esthetician. "My staff understands the importance of ongoing care to help our valued members manage pain and reach their skin care goals."

When you walk in the door at Hand and Stone, you immediately feel your cares slip away. Soothing spa music plays in the background while the muted blue and gray color scheme, combined with artwork of flowing water, sets the scene for a relaxing environment.

The spa offers a variety of services.

"Our two most popular services are hot stone massage and microdermabrasion," Moore said. "Hot stone is the most relaxing service that we offer; it's an excellent way for people to escape the stresses of day-to-day life. Our licensed massage therapists use the hot stones as a tool to help warm and relax the muscles. It incorporates the use of heated river rocks or Himalayan heated stones combined with the therapist's hands for a deeply therapeutic treatment designed to melt away all of the tension built up in our bodies."

For those more concerned with their skin, Moore recommends microdermabrasion.

"Microderm is the most results-driven esthetic treatment that we offer," she said. "Clients will see a change in their skin in just one treatment, but ongoing treatments are recommended. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical form of exfoliation that removes dull, lifeless cells on the skin's surface to improve radiance and tone. It is recommended as an excellent way to restructure skin texture. In addition, it is highly effective for correcting many unwanted skin conditions such as post-acne scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles."

The spa offers monthly specials and special introductory rates for first visits. Your spa treatment will be tailored to meet your needs. When you arrive for the first time, you will fill out a questionnaire and then a licensed/certified/registered massage therapist or esthetician will consult with you to tailor the treatment so it is perfect for you.

Hand and Stone also offers a membership program. The company feels getting a massage, a facial or both on a regular basis is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself, so it established the Healthy Lifestyle Program. For one low price each month, enjoy your choice of a one-hour massage or signature facial. It also includes a Member's Rewards program, where you earn points that can be turned in for free services or upgrades.

One thing that is unique about the spa is that it is open until 10 p.m. every night except Sunday, which gives busy professionals more time to use their services.

Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa, open 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday-Saturday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday, 1380 Galaxy Dr. NE, Lacey, 360.989.3594,
