Dynamic duo and married couple, Ed and Kathy Cefalu, opened TrioSpa in 2006 after they decided to quit their corporate jobs and head into the wonderful world of entrepreneurship in the mobile spa arena.
“We came up with the name TrioSpa because we were doing massage, facials and waxing… Kathy was doing facials and waxing and I was doing massage,” said Ed. “Can you believe we started out of a barn house?!”
Soon they added mobile spa services to the spa menu because they already had a strong team of mobile practitioners on hand and that led to more opportunities such as sporting events, trade shows, health fairs, and spa parties.
“We were excited to see how many new people we could meet this way, too,” and there’s “a good amount of ‘crossover’ appeal from OnLocation to InStudio and vice versa,” said Kathy.
These days, with over 40 mobile Massage Therapists and Estheticians on their team, they have since expanded their mobile spa services to include:
• Chair Massage
• Table Massage
• Foot & Hand Massage
• Foot & Hand Reflexology
• Signature Facials & Peels
• Make-up Demos
• Product Demos
• Waxing Party
• Dead Sea Salt Hand Scrubs and
• Intuitive Angel Card Readings.
“By the way, we also provide Canine massage or couples massage (pets and their owners) too!” said Ed.
“We specialize mostly in Swedish/ Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage, working with clients who are dealing with chronic pain,” said Kathy. “We also have a Signature Facial working with all skin types using products specific to the needs of our clients. In addition to general waxing for hair removal, we also provide Brazilian waxing, for which there has become a huge demand.”
Ed and Kathy enjoy working for themselves and maintaining their own schedule. “We take pride in the fact that we know what it takes to get [a business] off the ground and keep it growing over the last eight years or so,” said Kathy.
“The goal is to continue to grow the mobile/onsite aspect of the business by gaining more corporate clients in on-going massage programs as well as expanding to a larger location in San Jose/Santa Clara/South Bay Area,” said Kathy.
Brick and mortar, TrioSpa, is located in San Jose, California; however there’s also an option for mobile spa services throughout the entire North/South Bay area.
