It’s been a whirlwind shutting down the spa. So many people dropped by while we were getting rid of things, moving things, and cleaning up. It has been wonderful to connect with you all one last time at the spa, and heartwarming to see all the people reaching out to connect and share how much they loved coming to I.M. Spa.
I have always felt grateful for my ability to connect with people at the spa. Grateful that people allowed me the honor of connecting with them on that level. There is no other job on the planet where you can give another human your undivided attention for a whole hour in that way, providing a supportive environment on the table for release and healing. A special thank you to all the people who intentionally did business with us consistently and unwaveringly throughout the years. You know who you are. We would not have been able to have such a stable business for 10 years without your support. So much gratitude!! Thank you for being such an important part of my life.
I have so many things I want to do now. You can follow me on my new adventures by putting your email address in the ‘subscribe’ box on the upper right hand corner of this blog.
So, if you have not already heard, Fiddlehead Fern Therapeutics is taking over our client load. Many of you will remember Jesse Lynn from the earlier days of I.M. Spa. She did the first mobile spa party for 10 women with me 10 years ago. OMG that was sooo much work preparing for that, making sure that we had everything we needed to pull that off seemlessly. Both of us were nursing babies at the time, her son Rubin and my fourth son Ben. I know she and her colleagues at the Fern will take good care of you. All you have to do to make an appointment is call our phone number 479-251-7422.
Linay Walker was new to our staff this year. She gave an amazing and therapeutic massage and had quite a following. She can be found at Santos Chiropractic where they offer a $50 one hour massage and an $80 hour and a half massage:

Lisa Fogel has been our acupuncturist for years and years. I love her. I especially love how she is just as nerdy about acupuncture as I am about health and massage. She is always sharing articles with me of research on the effectiveness of acupuncture. So great. Her new office is: 479-435-3901

Nora has worked with me for almost 10 years and she is in the same boat as me physically. She has decided to retire from massage therapy because of pain related to practice. She has touched so many people and will be greatly missed. I love getting massages from Nora. Trading days were good days, though there were not as many as their should have been.
The Breast Center scooped up our fabulous Natalie. You will probably see her when you go for your biannual breast mashing. She will be helping women dealing with breast cancer which is a huge thing. We’re really fortunate to have such good people on that mission over at the Breast Center.
Thank you for your patience with this transition. The community has been overwhelmingly positive and supportive, and always I feel so fortunate to live with all of you here in Fayetteville. We really have a great community y’all.
Love, love, love,
