After years of working in the health care industry, Rosemary Weiner decided to take a much-needed break and replenish at a spa. Her experience there, combined with her background in nursing and health, led her to open The Brass Rose Spa & Salon in Blairstown, New Jersey. Weiner describes her spa as, “a cross between pampering and alternative care.”

She began her career as a nurse and quickly moved into public health services in her community, where she had the opportunity to become involved with publicly funded health programs. Weiner worked with various companies as a consultant to hospitals, insurance companies and state medical societies. When she decided to open the spa, she served as its general contractor for the construction of the building and facilities. Weiner also was responsible for conducting research on different products and treatments, and gathered a group of spa professionals to develop and test them.

After researching different spas, she came up with a name and a brand that remain strong seven years after the business opened its doors. “Brass Rose is branding. Brass is a metal, it’s durable, and it’s part of my personality. Rose shows the softer side of me,” explains Weiner. She says clients identify with the name and the logo because all aspects of the spa are designed to accentuate its meaning, from the furniture and equipment, to the staff’s apparel. Upon entering the facility, she says clients feel as though they’re checking into a fine hotel.
