Mobile spa of The Month for April 2014
By Maria Koropecky, esthetician
Jessica Dickson was inspired to open Jessica’s Beauty Service after one of her clients of the salon where she worked won 1.1 million dollars in a lottery and as a treat, started hiring Jessica to come to her place to do mobile spa services for herself and her friends. It just goes to show that owning a mobile spa business is a million-dollar-idea!
“It was so much fun, I thought it would be a great service to offer to everyone,” said Jessica.
Now 13 years later, this Canadian mobile spa, based out of Calgary, Alberta, is going strong.
“My favorite part of running a mobile spa is all the interesting people I get to meet…from seniors to celebrities and everyone in between,” said Jessica.
On Jessica’s spa menu you’ll find, Bio Sculpture gel nails, manicures, pedicures, facials, reflexology and make-up applications.
Jessica’s signature treatment is a reflexology pedicure. “My clients love this treatment! I start with a full pedicure to soften the feet and then do a 30-minute reflexology foot massage. The client is so relaxed and happy, they want to hire me to do their feet everyday!” she said.
Jessica has also teamed up with another mobile spa owner “so that we can work together on larger group bookings,” she said. “We also refer clients to each other when we are unable to take them on ourselves.”
As for future plans, Jessica will soon offer yoga instruction to her clients, along with the services she already delivers, after she completes her yoga teacher training. Another great idea.
