Kent Washington Best Spa Announced


Kent’s Lemon Drop Skin Care & Massage Takes Role as “Best Spa” earlier this year, Lemon Drop Skin Care & Massage was named the winner in the Kent Reporter’s “Best Spa Services” category, and this fall, it was nominated as “Best Day Spa” in the KING5 Best of Western Washington contest.

Owner Macey Boughter, LA, LMP, who started the business in 2006, takes these nominations and awards seriously by ensuring that her Kent-based skin care and massage studio offers a wide range of personal services. For example, a visit to the cozy Lemon Drop studio could include everything from its head-to-toe signature treatment and body wraps to skin care treatments and facials. A current customer favorite is the spa’s pumpkin enzyme facial, a special treatment Lemon Drop offers every October.

“Our customers love this deep cleansing and massage infused with vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin,” Boughter said. “It’s relaxing and refreshing.”

Boughter, who is both an esthetician and a massage therapist, offers many of the services herself, but she also has a well-trained staff that includes three other therapists, each with their own specialties.

“We may be smaller than other spas, but we make up for our size by offering unique services and a talented staff,” Boughter said.

Boughter said the spa also sets itself apart by taking green to a new level. Since opening, Lemon Drop Skin Care and Massage has made a concerted effort to be completely paperless. A real-time online booking system allows customers to instantly schedule and pay for their appointments. When scheduling this way, customers receive e-mail confirmation of the appointment along with the spa’s policies, a reminder e-mail and a paperless receipt. Therapists can log in remotely to see their appointments, eliminating the need for multiple appointment books.

“Going paperless is a great way for us to be more efficient while doing our part to protect the environment,” Boughter explained.
