The Therapists

Danielle Cervi

Spa Manager / Esthetician 

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.  Sixteen 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.
