Spa Experience at the Hudson Salon & Spa

After all those years of raising you, your mom deserves a little rest and relaxation!  Give her just that with a spa experience from the Hudson Salon & Spa in Laguna Beach.  Guests are treated to a private steam with a rainfall shower while inhaling the gentle aromatherapy of the spa.  Let mom indulge in a Swedish or deep tissue massage or surprise her with an ocean therapy treatment which includes a customized Dead Sea Salt Scrub.  Is mom feeling a little tired these days?  Then perhaps the Skin Quenching Hydrating Facial by Epicuren is just the thing she needs.  For more information about spa and salon services and to purchase a gift certificate or make reservations, please visit
