Bizline: The Spa at Beaver Run
Q What type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?A The Spa at Beaver Run provides a variety of massage treatments, facials, manicures, pedicures and body treatments (in our state of the art Vichy shower). We are also the only spa in Summit County that offers Watsu, a modern form of aquatic bodywork. Q Where are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?
A Phil is from Florida, Serina is from Missouri and Erik is from Minnesota. Summit County is a great place for body workers and a dynamic place to live. We all wanted to create something special in a place that brought us closer to the outdoor activities that we love. Q What experience do you have in this field?A Phil has been in the massage field 20 years and began his career on the Florida coastlines. Serina started working in the massage field 7 years ago and Erik finished school last year. We are all Watsu providers and have directed operations as managers in many fields before we opened the spa.
Q What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?A Quite simply, our Watsu amenity and ski-in ski-out access. We have the highest Watsu pool in the country and also offer skiers the opportunity to pop off their skis at the Beaver Run Superchair and walk right over to our spa.
Q What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County?A We welcome destination skiers and tourists who want to make the most of the mountain experience. We’re also very excited to provide all of our great services to the locals who work hard in our community every day. Our spa is designed for those who want a full day of pampering as well as those who want relief after a long day on the hill.Q Why did you choose to open where you did?
A Breckenridge, specifically Beaver Run, is a great place to have this ski-in ski-out amenity. Guests love to relax after a hard day on the slopes and forget about the rigors of everyday life. We decided that a spa in this location would be the optimal way to maximize the mountain getaway. Q What are your plans for your company’s future?A Watsu is currently being introduced in many aquatic treatment programs in hospitals and clinics around the word to decrease overall pain and provide a deep sense of well being. We want to bring Watsu to the attention of the mountain community as a modality that can provide true relief for chronic injuries and benefit those suffering from strokes, brain injuries, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and post traumatic stress. During the 2007-2008 season we plan on introducing Watsu to disabled skier groups in hopes of enhancing their vacation through profound, aquatic bodywork.
