We hope this finds you, your loved ones, and your spa family safe, well and healthy. Our hearts go out to all who have been impacted by this unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in.
We realize many of you may be temporarily closing or reducing your schedule as we continue to learn more about and respond to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As so many of us adjust our daily routines and businesses, we want you to know we are here and ready to serve you when you need us. We are open and shipping your orders without delay. You're welcome to place you order online 24 hours a day or by phone Monday - Friday from 9 am to 5 pm CT.
While our location is not open to the public (we are an online store only with very few local order pick ups), please know we're taking additional measures to keep our environment and shipping facility clean and sanitized by following all recommended best practices. Our team of 3 is doing well and we're following the CDC guidelines to protect ourselves and others.
As always, we appreciate your business and are grateful for the opportunity to support you. You're in our thoughts and prayers as we all navigate through this challenging time. Please take care of yourself and of each other. Rest assured, we will all emerge from this passing storm stronger, wiser, and more resilient on the other side.

We've compiled a list of financial resources that may be available to the self-employed and small businesses amid the COVID-19 crisis. Remember, this is a temporary situation. It WILL pass. You just need to be prepared to have short term reserves to hold you over until we all get back to business. And it will be sooner rather than later! We'll continue to update the list as we become aware of new resources.
