SAN DIEGO — A San Diego woman who’s never had any spa at all has a plan to do just that.
She’s going to have a spa, in her words.
Melissa Avila says she’s tired of being left out of the spa scene.
“I love the spa, but it doesn’t really work for me,” said Avilas mother, Maria Elena.
Avila, who works in the hospitality industry, is trying to change that.
She’s designing her own spa and will open it in her San Diego home.
When she opened her spa in 2009, she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to open her own business.
Now, she’s planning to open it herself, and hopes to make it a destination for people who don’t get the spa experience.
“I want people to go in and feel good, be comfortable, and I want to make them feel good for their money,” said Elena.
She hopes to create an environment that is therapeutic for people, but not for herself.
“If you don’t want to get a spa treatment, you don.
I want people who can see that and say ‘that’s not the spa for me,'” she said.
The spa will be open to the public on Monday, March 14, at 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, March 21 and 22, and Wednesday, March 23 and 24.
