Meet Cindy James of Our Family Spa in La Mesa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cindy James.

Cindy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
As a single mom, I always struggled trying to find time for myself. It always felt impossible to get a babysitter so I could even get a wax or a pedicure, much less to carve out enough time to pamper myself with a massage or facial. I knew a spa with free onsite babysitting would allow me to take care of myself while I still had my kids nearby so I didn’t have to worry. Also, my kids love getting massages, but most spa don’t allow children. So I decided to create a spa environment where the whole family is welcome.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
A great thing about Our Family Spa is that it is so unique- there is no other spa like it. But that also means we have to work hard to get the word out in the community that we are here, and to get people to understand how cool our concept is before they’ve actually seen it.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Our Family Spa – what should we know?
Our Family Spa is a day spa that cares about your entire family. We make it fun to keep your family healthy and centered in this crazy world!

Parents, do you need a spa break, but can’t find a babysitter? Let us watch your kids in our fabulous play room while you get the pampering you deserve!

We also offer family massage, sports pedicures, teen facials, Mommy and Me spa dates, and much, much more! You and your kids both deserve the enhanced health and self-image that massage, facial and body care can provide.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
My kids and I are very proud to run a true family business. We really care about our clients, and it shows in the many personal touches we offer and the way we always work to give our clients more than they were expecting. The look on parents’ faces after we take care of their kids while they finally get some time together during a couple’s massage; the self-confident glow on a teen’s face after a good facial; the laughs we hear from a bunch of 6-year olds at a mani-pedi birthday party- those are the results that drive what we do.
