It’s been said that sometimes the most productive thing you can do is simply relax. We understand, though, this often is easier said than done.

However, once you cross the threshold into Ultimate Escape Day Spa, you will feel as if you have entered another dimension — one that brings much-needed and well-deserved peace and tranquilty. 

With dozens of services from which to choose, Ultimate Escape Day Spa literally has you covered from head to toe. Choose from any number of pampering delights, including body treatments, massage therapy, skin care, facials, nail care, waxing, tinting, makeup application, and more. Whether you want to enjoy an hour away from it all or even the whole day, Ultimate Escape Day Spa stands at the ready to serve you. The spa also offers a wide selection of cruelty-free and nontoxic skin-care products, the most popular of which are Image and SKIN KC, an all-organic local skin-care line. Plus, with Mother’s Day on the calendar this month, you can find the perfect gift or spa package for that special woman in your life. 

“We have a variety of packages this year for Mother’s Day,” says owner and licensed esthetician Anna Sorkin. “You can choose from any of our services to create the perfect gift.” 

One of the most requested services at Ultimate Escape Day Spa includes the Nature’s Delight facial. (Fair warning: Once you indulge in this slice of heaven on Earth, you probably will want to do so on a regular basis.) An all-organic therapeutic facial, this treatment begins with a deep-pore cleansing, exfoliation, and thorough extractions, followed by a soothing massage with essential oils and an apricot-berry clay mask to restore the natural balance of your skin.

A new service introduced this spring is the Ultimate Relaxation Massage, a 60- or 90-minute massage that incorporates several modalities and techniques, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, hot stones, Himalayan salt stones, or cupping. Therapists will choose the right technique to suit each client’s needs. 

Don’t forget to give your hands and feet some love, too, with a Seasonal Scentsations Ultimate Spa Manicure/Pedicure. “Every season we change the scent of our products,” Sorkin says, “and this spring we’re offering lemon drop and mango in our moisturizing and vitamin-infused butters and creams.” 

Sorkin also is excited to announce a new body treatment: the Cellulite-Reducing Kona Coffee Full Body Scrub. “We use pure ground Kona coffee beans with sea salt to exfoliate,” she says. “The caffeine, which is amazing for the skin, helps to tighten and boost the circulation.” 

After a hot towel treatment and shower, you’ll enjoy a luxurious firming body cream designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and promote firmer, toned skin. “This service is perfect when you’re getting ready for a big event,” Sorkin explains. The spa is also a great place to pamper your bridal party before the big day or get your wedding makeup perfectly applied. This truly is the place where stress is not allowed.

And, no matter what kind of stress you may have, Sorkin and her team always aims to make your visit a delightful one.

“I bought my wife a gift certificate from here and she absolutely loved it,” says customer Alex M. “The ladies at the front desk were very friendly in providing her with an opening due to her crazy schedule. It’s very easy to find time that worked with her schedule to make an appointment. Ultimate Escape will do anything possible to be accommodating and ensure you enjoy your experience there.”
