Relaxation and skin care have been combined at a new downtown Bowling Green business.
Tara's Mini Spa, located within Myome Spa at 161 N. Main St., is owned by long-time Bowling Green resident Tara McVicker. Services include facials, back massage and deep exfoliation, back facial, peels, microdermabrasion, acne treatments, waxing and mobile organic spray tanning.
"Everybody is treated like royalty when they come in here. It's not just a quick in-and-out session and I am not going to hard-sell you any products. I really do care about holistic health," McVicker said. "I will give them the utmost care and relaxation while they are here."
McVicker said another aspect of her mission is to offer "high-end services at a small-town price."
Prior to opening up her first business, McVicker worked as a nurse and in education. She is a licensed esthetician, has a bachelor's degree in health education and is a licensed practical nurse.
"I actually became a fan as a consumer of the industry," McVicker said.
With all of her sessions, excluding acne treatment, McVicker incorporates moist-heat therapy.
"With my medical background I know most people, whether they know it or not, have some type of arthritis or inflammatory condition," she said.
Arm, hands, foot and facial massages are also included in the session at no extra charge.
"To me, that's my customer appreciation," she said.
The acne treatment is offered in a four- to six-week series and includes skin analysis, treatment plan, home instruction and the weekly treatment. The student price is $30 per treatment.
Several types of peels are also offered by McVicker.
"What that does it is really takes off the dead layer of skin cells, removes the congestion in your pores and allows your skin to breathe," she said.
McVicker uses a special product line called Hylunia for all of her sessions. The products are designed for sensitive skin and are available for purchase.
"I am not trying to hard-sell people this product. It's here if they haven't been able to find a product that works for them," she said.
Another service she offers is mobile, organic sunless spray tanning. McVicker has a mobile tent and a portable air brush/compression system she can take to a tanning party, for example.
Sessions are by appointment only and can be made by calling (419) 308-9636.
The spa's grand opening will be Wednesday from 5 to 8 p.m. For those who stop by and schedule any service, they will receive $10 off.
