THE SPA’AH, LLC was established in December 2014, by licensed massage therapist Michelle Christen, on the east side of Conway. Originally, the spa was to be a part-time effort for Michelle to collect a smidgeon of additional income, while helping people in her community with relaxation or chronic kinetic issues requiring therapeutic treatments. Having watched influential people in her life struggle with decline in health and mobility, or suffer from fatigue, tension, anxiety; Michelle was ready to give back to people, offer steps toward wellness and restoration.
In just a few short months, the spa had grown a small steady following of clients and added a therapist. In August of 2015, Michelle added Bodyworks Spa in west Conway to her business growth plan. Bodyworks Spa was originally established in 2004, and was well known in the area as place of peace and wellness. Together the two spas mirrored one another and promoted the same services providing many therapeutic massages and spa treatments to Conway and surrounding communities.
In 2016, THE SPA’AH, LLC relocated centrally in Conway convenient to shopping and the interstate at 810 Amity Rd. Both previous spas were combined into the Amity location. In late January 2019, Michelle then set her sights on improving education in the industry by acquiring and moving Body Wellness Massage Academy to north Conway. Subsequently, both businesses pinnacled with a need for expansion and co-location for easy of management. Michelle was poised for another growth cycle in 2021 and set out to create a larger facility with increased offerings.
THE SPA’AH now provides many amenities at the 2501 Dave Ward location which include two couple’s massages rooms, four individual rooms, two whirlpools, two esthetic rooms, a wax room, and rain shower. Also included are a full service salon, a float pod, a salt room, a medical infrared sauna, and a medical suite for the Medical Director. And, co-located in an adjoining suite is Body Wellness Massage Academy with classroom, clinical rooms, and office space.
THE SPA’AH, LLC still remains gender neutral and provides a soothing environment that helps to make that re-connection from a hectic daily living to a more relaxed state of wellness. Our devoted staff look forward to easing the tensions of your day and helping promote a balanced approach to wellness.
