Going Gainesville stepped out of the sensory deprivation tanks we told you about last issue and hopped on over to Tranquility Day Spa to continue our “self care.” Located in downtown Haymarket, Tranquility Day Spa was voted Best Of in the massage, nail and spa services categories and we were determined to find out why!
There was no one more deserving to share this treat of de-stressing with than Kelly Hayes. Kelly is one of my realtors at Salman Home Realty. She’s been selling houses like a rockstar while juggling her family life and kids so I invited her to be my guest host.
We sat down with Gloria Harding, owner of Tranquility Day Spa, and asked her point blank, “What is it that makes your spa the best?” Her response was simple. “The people who work here,” she said. “It may sound cliche, but each team member turns an interaction into an experience.”
It’s an experience that earned the spa a Lifestyle “Best Of” award and a place on Washingtonian Magazine’s list Top 10 Salons in Northern Virginia. And, moving beyond magazines, they’ve won just about every award in their industry.
Tranquility Day Spa offers all the services of a full-service salon and a full-service day spa: facials, manicures, pedicures and massages, to name just a few.
But that’s not all.
Every year, the business makes charitable donations of about a quarter of a million dollars to the local community. They truly live up to their motto, “a love and compassion for beauty.”
