Wouldn't it be convenient if there were a tropical beach right around the corner? What if I could go down the street and find the serenity of lying in a bamboo thicket, staring up at the glistening leaves of the canopy? I would love to be able to see a clear view of the stars in the desert anytime I want. Did you know that you have a neighbor that can
provide all that and more?
When I was young, Mom used to take me to get massages. You see, my mother has always loved to travel and be pampered, and I was lucky enough to join her. We enjoyed massages all over the world, facials on cruise ships, and pedicures during shopping trips. I remember the first time we went to a high end spa, I was just awestruck by the décor; and on top of that, during my massage, I thought to myself…"This feels SO GOOD, why doesn’t everyone do this?!" I definitely caught the vacation bug from my mother and she planted the day spa seed early on.
That seed germinated while I attended college. I studied the inner workings of the human body. It was there I realized there are so many physical and mental benefits in the health and wellness field more than just “feeling good.” I hadn’t made it to massage school yet; there was marriage and babies to attend to first! After our sons Liam and Tristan were born, I knew it was time. Even then, five years ago, I had the details of the spa in my mind. It would be destination-themed because I love to vacation, and I truly believe people don't do it enough. After finishing massage school, I got to work nurturing the seedling.
When building the spa, I incorporated an atmosphere of being somewhere else. Buffalo is incredible but at times can be such a dreary place, so even just an hour of feeling like you're at the beach can make a difference in your life. With the help of my amazingly talented husband, I put everything I had into making the spa stunning, including handpicking every light and every tile. But it wasn't just about ambiance. I put even more focus on personnel. What good is the coolest atmosphere around if I didn't staff it with the best professionals I could find in WNY?
After 20 years of dreaming, a wonderful husband, four children, and a lot of hard work, I finally can say my dreams are in full bloom. The final product is "Destination Massage".
