Anoo’s Indian philosophy offers a unique perspective for Miryala’s clientele. Treatments are all natural and organic, and don’t involve abrasive machines, creating a very relaxing, results-oriented menu. Miryala notes that many clients will travel a distance to get to the spa. “It’s really nice to have that appeal,” she says. “You will be successful if you do something different than your competition.”

Miryala believes that organic treatments can dramatically boost the profit margin of a spa. “Spa owners could increase their revenue by 20-30% by introducing and marketing organic ayurvedic skin and body spa treatments,” she says. “Ayurvedic treatments can help prevent skin problems and infections by removing body heat created by age and stress.”

Miryala continues to remain active in the industry, teaching facial, body treatment and massage seminars. She also has developed step-by-step videos on facial and massage techniques. In the future, she hopes to continue educating estheticians on the benefits of natural, organic skin care by opening a school and carrying on her family’s tradition. “Without my sisters’ support in India, I wouldn’t be able to do all that I do,” she concludes.
