Burke Williams Spa
I recently had an invitation to visit and receive a facial at the new Burke Williams in Sherman Oaks. The invite came from a recent SBCC esthetician graduate -- Sarah, who is an amazing, caring woman and esthetician.
The Burke Williams Spa is located in the Galleria in Sherman Oaks; I arrived early and discovered a Paul Mitchell Academy, so I stopped in to browse and network!
This was the first time I had been to a Burke Williams Spa and according to Sarah, they each have different setting and decor. The Spa in Sherman Oaks seemed to have a bit of a Cape Cod or hunter's lodge type decor. I arrived early to enjoy the ammenities -- sauna, steam and jacuzzi, really though, I was just excited to have a facial by Sarah as she had raved about the education and thorough training process at Burke Williams. And indeed, the facial was beautiful and it was interesting because it was different than the "usual" facial protocol. Sarah performed mostly pressure point face massage (instead of effleurage). Sarah also had a great approach with her consultation and facial technique -- I could tell she was in her element and really loves being an esthetician.
Thank you Sarah so much for the pampering morning at Burke Williams Spa -- the are very fortunate to have you on staff!
Remember: Always arrive at least an hour early to enjoy the ammenities and calm your mind and body to prepare for your treatment.
