REVIEW THIS SPA NOW
ENGLEWOOD, FL – Charity Cain believes there are certain luxuries women won’t give up — even during economic uncertainties.
“The thing about Americans and Europeans is that they want to look pretty and will spend money on making themselves look good,” Cain said, “especially women.”
The former office where she began her career in real estate has been transformed into her latest business, Silhouettes Day Spa, located at 2240 S. McCall Road.
The path to the front door leads to a tranquil escape away from Englewood.
Once inside, the interior has been converted to a sea of deep burgundy, mahogany furnishings and gold trimming. Soothing music and scents of essential oils fill the air.
Above a product showcase are bold letters that spell the word “inspire.”
“That’s exactly what we want to do,” she said, “to inspire people when they come in here.”
Cain’s personal struggle became her latest endeavor.
After her fourth child, she felt uncomfortable with her body.
“I tried everything. I’ve gone to Walgreens, I’ve gone to Wal-Mart. I’ve bought every pill,” she said.
But it wasn’t until she traveled overseas when Cain discovered “Ionithermie” and decided to bring it to Englewood.
Ionithermie is a treatment involving the application of electronic stimulation to areas of the body through a body mask of conductive clay. The cost is $149-$159 per session.
Other services offered at the spa include five different types of massages including of Swedish, prenatal and couples; various facials, body wraps, spray tans and waxing services.
After three treatments, Cain was convinced.
“My skin was firmer, my stomach was more toned and I lost my stretch marks,” she said.
So she purchased the products and opened the spa Feb. 25.
As businesses are closing because of the economic crunch, Cain said she has been “slammed” and she believes the reason is she has products that people want.
When Tiffany McMenamin first heard about the Ionithermie treatments, she was skeptical.
But when she noticed Cain’s results, she budgeted for months in advance to be able to afford six sessions, totaling $800.
McMenamin, who just had a baby, said she noticed her dark purple stretch marks reduce to a pale white and she said that she lost a total of 32 inches.
“Before, it looked like Freddy Kruger attacked my body,” she said.
But after her treatments were complete, she was so impressed with the results.
“People will be hooked on it,” McMenamin said.
