The J House Spa was opened on August 31, 2015. We have recruited an amazing team of healers, therapists and beauty professionals. The uniqueness of the J House has always been a draw to me. It has been a pleasure and accomplishment to be part of the property and family here.
My passion for eyebrows started in high school and I was soon shaping eyebrows for all my friends and family. I knew I wanted to work in a spa atmosphere after being inspired by two women who were already in the industry. Skincare and daily skincare routines have been a part of my life since adolescence. Twenty years later I am happily working in the industry which gives me a great sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.
I believe that routine facials and massages are an essential part of taking care of yourself. The team of professionals at the J House Spa are dedicated, passionate and experts in their craft. We offer customized treatments in a welcoming and relaxing setting.
Having benefited from the care of massage therapy growing up and later in life, Kim learned through firsthand experience the healing power of touch. She felt called to give back through the healing arts by providing this service with great skill and compassion. Coming to The J House was a natural transition for Kim who worked with Danielle Cervi, the Spa Manager of The J House Greenwich, for 4 years as a Master Massage Therapist at the Spa at Equinox.
