INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT: Maureen Schumaker, spa director, Le Spa, Sofitel LA, Los Angeles

We do provide food as a celebration, and that can be anything fron chocolate covered strawberries to appetizers. We have a lot of groups that visit the spa and it’s a great opportunity to make the spa area a personalized lounge creating a homey, comfortable environment.

On a daily basis, we have fruit and nuts available. Spa can be stimulating to the body and we want to make sure that they have nutritional food to put into their body to refuel.

We have personal training and we are a full wellness center. We haven’t gone to the level of adding nutrition into that mix. For the restaurant, we do have healthy items featured in the Simon LA restaurant menu. We have a wonderful grilled halibut with steamed vegetables.
