Spa Day at the Senior Center of West Seattle was full of surprises including charming goodie bags for everyone to take home. Guests could sign up for a main/pedi by Washington Beauty School, hair trim by CoCo & Co., and massage by LaVida. Then for some fun you could have your palms read or your astrology sign charted. I myself enjoyed the facial by The Beauty Bar, a reiki session by West Seattle Healing Tree and had my handwriting analyzed.
