The Truckee Beauty & Spa Industry is booming! The Spa Industry is something that is close to my heart! My daughter Brie, is a California Certified Massage Therapist, Certified Prenatal & Labor Massage Therapist, a Certified Massage Doula, and a Licensed Esthetician. Next up is an Infant Massage Educator Certification Training class.
Brie went independent in March, 2010 and works under the business name of Massage By Brie in Midtown Sacramento, CA. Her top three specialties are Prenatal Massage - including Massage in the Delivery Room, Sports Massage, and Myofascial Release which is a great technique to use for chronic pain problems.
Brie has always been interested in hair and makeup, and even before she went to Massage School, she loved Massage! When she was little, she used to print up massage gift certificates and give to family for Christmas. We have been planning on eventually opening a Day Spa together, and so we have been following the Massage and Spa Industry for years, so we know a lot about it.
Brie and I connect with hundreds of Massage Therapists, Estheticians, and Spa Owners on Facebook. I help her with her Massage Marketing and her website, so this is an industry that we stay up on, on a daily basis!
One of the most critical components of the Tahoe experience is relaxation! It is just a much slower and relaxed pace in Truckee and Lake Tahoe! Here are two of my favorite Spa's in the area:
