There’s a little bit of heaven to be found right here in the 918 cocooned within a gleaming, white, egg-shaped pod. Inside, you’re warm and safe from the cares of the world, while gentle waterfalls of music play and aromatherapy relaxes and invigorates.

As soon as you step in the lobby, you know spa810 is something special. A lovely, cascading light fixture hangs from a high ceiling over a reception area decorated in soft gray and warm, friendly orange. Comfy padded chairs wait to embrace you if you need to wait for your services. You’re enjoying a special treat before you even step into the spa itself.

Jeff O’Bryan owns spa810 with his wife, Roshani. “We knew we wanted our own business,” O’Bryan explains. With entrepreneurs on both sides of the family, the O’Bryans began looking for opportunities. “Roshani is an engineer. I’m a programmer and software engineer,” says O’Bryan. “We were thinking about tech or software, but our franchise coach came back with options including spa810. We were excited about it because we were already helping people, and this was a way to continue that.”

Spa director Jessica Beck is enthusiastic about the spa810 experience. “Other places you need to tell them what you want. Here, we talk with you to determine your needs and customize your experience,” she says.

The spa itself is gently lit, softly colored, and filled with quiet and soothing music. The massage rooms are spacious. “The massage therapists tell me [that at] some places the rooms are so small, you can only work on the client from above. Our rooms allow them their full range of motion,” O’Bryan says. The rooms are equipped with towel warmers and essential oils, and the couples massage room has a softly glowing Himalayan salt lamp. “We like to include complementary extras for a fully relaxing experience.”

The facial rooms are equipped with spa810’s unique pods that can adjust from 80-180 degrees for your own personal dry sauna experience. “It’s the Dry Sauna Alpha Fusion Pod. It has aroma therapy and dry sauna heat,” Beck says. “The zero-gravity table is weight sensitive and has adjustable vibration. Everyone raves about it. Twenty minutes in the pod is like an hour of sleep to your brain.”

If you’re worried that dry sauna heat will be too much, there’s adjustable personal air conditioning to gently waft cool air over your face to keep you comfortable. The pods are heavenly, and enhance the entire spa experience.

The ila line of organic products has its own room at spa810. “It’s beyond organic. This line includes a lot of energy and lymphatic work,” says Beck. It’s major pampering, putting the body back in natural balance.

“It’s exclusive to us,” O’Bryan says. “We’re the only non-resort/medical spa with this line.”

If you want to get pampered like an A-list Hollywood star, the HydraFacial line is what you want. “In Hollywood, they call this the Event Peel,” explains Beck. Stars like to get this treatment before red carpet events or parties. “It gives you glow, fills little lines, and leaves you with healthy, beautiful, shiny skin.”

Spa810 is equipped with CoolSculpting, an FDA approved procedure which uses cooling to target and eliminate fat cells without surgery or downtime. The procedure takes several cycles, with each cycle showing a 20-25 percent reduction of fat cells in the treatment area. “It also tones and tightens the skin,” adds Beck. “It’s all natural and non-invasive. We see really great results; the before and after is really surprising.”

Spa810’s name comes from its laser, which operates at 810 nm (nanometers). It’s the newest technology available and is only operated by certified techs like Beck. Its use is overseen by medical director Dr. Ruth Miller, who consults with patients before laser procedures are scheduled.

Unlike older lasers, spa810’s laser hair removal is virtually pain-free.

“Rather than painful snaps, we paint the area, dispersing the energy in a better fashion,” says Beck. Another improvement is that this laser can be used on any skin tone. Older lasers can have trouble with darker skin. Laser hair removal can be done on any part of the body and the packages include six to eight sessions several weeks apart. The laser can also be used to tighten skin, in a single session or as a package.

There are too many services to begin to list them all, which is just one of several reasons you should consider a membership at spa810. You can sign up for an Essential Membership ($69/month), which entitles you to one signature service a month, or a Premium Membership ($119/month), which includes two services each month. Either membership includes benefits like 30 percent off all treatments and packages, discounts on retail products, a gift card on your birthday, and more. If you’re active military or veteran, teacher or a student, or any type of first responder like police, firefighters, or nurses, your membership is reduced $10 per month.

“We see people walk out almost in a stupor, they feel so much better,” says O’Bryan. “We have people with scars, young people with acne, and we make that situation better. We help them. It’s a kind of personal gratification.”
