I love it when small businesses get attention. I do. The cookie cutter style, makes it difficult to maintain the message which gets so diluted by the time it gets there. Yes, I know some do it right, but they are few and far between. The local spa in my neighborhood, called Balance Spa is my haven. Of course you must be saying, isn’t every spa? Well, Balance Spa goes the extra mile. They put in those little touches that make a difference. Things like creating serene zones and having herbal teas greeting you.
The fact that they have a huge male grooming program says how forward thinking they are, even hosting various workshops like “Shaving the proper way” and many forward trending topics like the Ultrasonic brush for ex-foliating in a facial. The demeanor of every staff member is beyond just professional, but also caring. Oh, and these guys are savvy too, they have email specials each night for slots not being filled, how smart is that?
