After a decade spent working in public relations, teaching fitness classes, and playing bass in a rock band, Stacey Suzanne Overstreet longed for a career that would let her impact others on a more personal level. She followed her dream, and opened staceyO studiO - Massage & Esthetics Wellness Spa. Now a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, and recently returned from advanced wellness training in India, she treats her clients with carefully planned, custom spa services inside her candle-lit studio, nestled in Gold’s Gym.
She sets a soothing tone for personalized massages with soft lighting and music, hot towels, and exotic aromatherapy scents. As she kneads her visitor's muscles with gentle or deep pressure, she may moisturize their skin with Epicuren Discovery oils and lotions, scaring away worries more swiftly than a threateningly brandished tea candle. She also exfoliates dead skin cells and smoothes blemishes using microdermabrasion treatments and PCA chemical peels; and nourishes skin during more than 14 facials that incorporate ingredients such as pumpkin, ginger, volcanic clay, and ground crystals.
