What began as a traveling-spa-party business in 2010 has since grown into a brick-and-mortar studio where three licensed massage therapists ply their trade. In addition to classic massage treatments—such as relaxation, deep-tissue, and hot-stone therapy—the crew has branched out into other services that require greater expertise. During reiki treatments the staff addresses the body's energy flow, and both pediatric and infant massages meet the needs of all American Girl dolls. Super Spa Girl owner Jenny Keffer is also a fertility-massage specialist, which enables her to help women achieve their dream of becoming mothers through a combination of deep abdominal massage, pelvic rocking, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Massage Spa & Beyond encompasses 5,000 square feet of relaxing space where pampering practitioners set to work beautifying bodies with an extensive menu of salon and spa services, including a selection of treatments engineered for men. Patrons can pop in for a haircut or toenail trim and polish, for which they’ll lounge in a white leather pedicure chair, or linger for an extended luxury service such as a massage, during which sumptuous chocolate is decanted across the body. Like most presidential debates, many of the spa’s treatments are preceded by a stint in a hardwood steam or dry sauna.
