CATER TO YOUR SPIRIT
Rockstars, Hotel Guests, Professional Athletes, Busy Employees, Members, VIPs, Business Owners, and High-Powered Executives – Everyone reduces their stress and takes care of their skin at SkinCatering! We provide clients with high quality massage, skincare, and spa services without the use of harmful chemicals to maintain a balance of healthy living. In late 2020, we added hair and nail services when we opened our expanded suite on December 3rd. Our team is dedicated to their profession and continually seeking education to support the evolving needs of our clients.
Yes, our mission is based in “All-Natural” but don’t let that fool you into believing we are basic! We still keep up on the latest trends and incorporate those that are most effective for our clients. We also have equipment with advanced technology (like light therapy, oxygen facials, and radio-frequency) that we’ve blended into our menu of classic, time-honored modalities. Here at SkinCatering it’s about selecting safe, effective, results-driven services that give our clients an incredible experience.
We have a secure online reservations system, a location that is typically available for appointments seven days a week, and a team with a diverse background in the wellness and beauty industries.
