Our story began in the summer of 2006. A mother and 2 daughters had a dream to open a Day Spa. Spa by day, and a spa-labration by night, where groups could come and celebrate different occasions with friends and family while being pampered with spa services.
We began our year of training to obtain our certified status as estheticians and began the search for the perfect property and business plan. About three quarters through the training process both daughters announced their pregnancies!
I was shocked! They were sick – with morning sickness. The bubble had burst, all the dreams slowly dissolved as we tried planning a daily routine and a spa that might include day care.
We set the plan aside, finished our training, and both babies were born by the middle of 2007.
As we planned baby showers and wedding showers and bachelorette parties that summer we discovered how wonderful spa parties and these events went together in the comfort of our homes. A new vision was being birthed.
The plan was to incorporate an old time pajama party kind of atmosphere, inspired by celebrations and slumber parties of years gone by. We wanted to recreate a place where women could get together and receive professional spaaaaah services.
As we gave more thought to it, we decided we could do home spa parties – NO!!! Spa “Jama” Parties!
This gave us the opportunity to keep up our skills and give us a few nights out.
The phones started ringing and requests for larger parties were coming in steadily. We decided to hire extra girls and are happy to say that we are still on the go!
Being moms ourselves we know the benefits of being pampered and having time out; we want to offer that to all women.
