Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Adhering to the spa-wide belief that natural ingredients and noninvasive treatments yield the best results in skincare, Velvet Day Spa pampers clients with a variety of services—ranging from facials to spray tanning—done with organic products. The skilled aestheticians also use their advanced industry experience to pamper clients with modern techniques and procedures including permanent-makeup applications, nonsurgical face-lifts, and microdermabrasions. Soon after opening the spa in 2007, owner Jeanette Ryan created an organic line of products called Velvet Skincare, which is counterintuitively not designed for people with textile skin.
Within the cozy confines of Kristina Spa Studio, Kristina pampers her clients with relaxing skin and body treatments. Classic Euro facials cleanse and moisturize complexions; luxurious 24-karat gold facials help reduce the appearance of fine lines; and acne facials target blemishes by reining in oil, soothing inflammation, and catching bacteria in microscopic mousetraps. In her massages, Kristina releases muscle tension, improves circulation, and tames stress with smooth Swedish strokes or more intense deep-tissue kneads.

At Journey to Natural Health, licensed massage therapists and estheticians operate with a single goal: returning clients to a place of optimal health and wellness.
