With over 35 years of experience as an esthetician and massage therapist, Laurence McKee was professionally trained in Paris, France and San Francisco, California. Her professional journey with skincare began at the age of 17 with her family business, Institut de Beaute, an upscale spa in the center of Paris. Committed to treating the wellness of the whole body, Laurence is also trained in Ayurvedic treatments.

Rooted in this vast experience and a deep passion for skin care, Turning Point Spa is a unique French Skincare experience based in Marin County that calls people to care for and indulge in the health and beauty of their body, inside and out. 

We believe in the art of French luxury, the important ritual of self care, the beauty of all skin types, and the joy of slowing down.


Laurence offers the rare combination of a refined expertise in skin and body work, the gentle, caring, devoted kindness of a true healer, and a cultivated artistry for wellness. Laurence generously shares her holistic approach and comprehensive knowledge of self care to develop treatments that are custom tailored to each of her clients. Whether it is a well deserved facial or massage to pamper yourself, a healing Ayurvedic session, or specialized Oncology skin care, Laurence is unmatched.

Thank you for the great treatment. The LED machine is truly amazing—my skin is different in just one treatment!

Laurence is the gold standard of estheticians in the Bay Area! I have had the pleasure of knowing her for more than 15 years now, and I love how she helps women find self-connection, empowerment and ultimately improving our relationship with ourselves. She takes the time during each visit to identify your needs and customize a treatment plan that is just right for you. Using a healthy, holistic approach to skin care with the best products and equipment available on the market. On my last visit I had the contour and lift facial with Omnilux phototherapy treatment and my skin looks 10 years younger! I absolutely love it! My daughter started coming to Laurence when she was 11 years old and loves how as a teenager her skin is clean, acne free and vibrant! It’s good to start early!!! I would highly recommend that you try one of her treatments! You will be hooked for life!
