Happy start of summer! Let the good times roll people! This weekend is gorgeous, the books are a bit light, and I’m super ok with it. There is a seasonal ebb and flow to our business – when the weather FINALLY turns, people head outside, YAY. I do my best to appreciate the beautiful days in nature and am actually on a lil road trip to Mt Rushmore and the Rocky Mountains with my family as we speak. Hope you’ve got some nature time on your schedule, too! <3
A few of our full-timers have gone on permanent road trips and moved out of state – Bailey to Georgia and Stormie to Oregon, #cry! Ladies, we miss you already! We’ve hired a few new faces and I’m happy to introduce you to them here! As part of our fancy newsletter, I’ve included a “New to You” coupon below for $10 off if you’d like to try working with someone new! (Hey Members – YES you CAN stack this coupon with your Member discount!)
Jessica, one of our part-time Massage Therapists, has increased her availability! 🙂 She’s been my personal therapist many times and creates amazing healing sessions for all types of clients. She is really intuitive with her bodywork and prides herself on great consultations that inspire trust and clear understanding of goals.
Jessica has become highly requested in her 8 years as a therapist, as well as in her first year here with us. She has extensive knowledge and experience in relaxation, prenatal, deep tissue and more. She’s worked in spa and clinic settings as well as on-site in the entertainment industry. We are very excited to have Jessica and her skills more available with us! She is at our Carpentersville location almost full-time now!
