In fact, you come to mind often as we help serve children here at Light of the World Charities. Likewise, we hope you enjoyed meeting the staff, board members, and most of all, the children. We enjoyed their musical treat and demonstrated involvement together with you.

Shangri La Day Spa

I had THE BEST massage I have ever had from Bobbi. She has strong hands and a magic touch that made my whole body feel relaxed and invigorated. I had rotator cuff surgery in June; Bobbi understood the surgery and worked the muscles of my back and shoulder so that I am pain free for the first time since surgery! I will definitely be back soon to help my recovery and for total body relaxation. Great job, clean salon, and friendly staff. The massage room had nice music and a peppermint smell which I enjoyed - I do not like sweet or overly flowery scents. -  TripAdvisor Reviewer
