Once Upon a Spa combines natural and scientist-designed therapies to help you refresh or glamourize in a private setting.
Specializing in the art of beautiful nails, and sugary-smooth skin, we offer a great variety of services primarily with Dermalogica®, Veque, Cannaisseur, and Alexandria products.
We are dedicated to personal care details: luxurious shea butters, pure oils, and environmentally friendly products throughout our treatments. We understand the nuances between "natural," truly natural, and scientist-developed products. We also follow a very strict hygiene process for our implements and linens.
We invite you to join us in our one-client-at-a-time studio for a free consultation or a quiet respite while we serve you. We love to share our products and services, so we hope to see you soon.
