Mahala’s Day Spa: Polarity Therapy Is Awsome

OH , Mahala’s Day Spa. I love this place. It is relaxing, everyone is so warm and kind and they know what they are doing! Just walking in the door I am happier. I have had a number of services from them, but this latest was AMAZING! I had a polarity treatment. I have had some polarity work done in the past.
