Editor’s note: Each year, Repêchage holds its annual Spa de Beauté Award of the Year contest to honor industry businesses committed to esthetic excellence. In 2009, Skin Inc. magazine had the honor of judging this award program, and the Spa Snapshot columns in the November 2009, December 2009 and January 2010 issues highlight each of this year’s winning spas. This month’s Spa Snapshot features the winner in the Day Spa category.
Stopping by Body Sense Day Spa in Hyannis, Massachusetts, is like visiting a family member or a good friend—with the added benefit of a stellar spa service to boot.
It’s a space where owner Kelly White wants her clients to be able to escape from their worries and leave feeling healthy and rejuvenated. “We want to make a difference both inside and out,” she says. White decided to open Body Sense after the salon where she had been subcontracting went up for sale in 2005. “I’d been doing this for 25 years at that time, and I decided it was time to take the risk, have faith in myself and go out on my own,” White explains.
