Tracy Miller loves interacting with people on a one-on-one basis.
Since the creation of her new business, Jus Because in June, she is doing exactly that while living her dream and loving life at the same time.
Miller worked for five years in a local salon as a massage therapist and a nail technician.
"I always had a goal to own my own shop." Miller said, "I loved what I was doing and had a good clientele. When this building came available it was good for me. It gave me the opportunity to fulfill my dream."
The building had begun renovations by the owner prior to Hurricane Ivan. Ivan's fury ripped the back roof off the building.
"The owner was pretty much done with it at that point. He and some investor friends had originally planned to use it for office space or an apartment. " Miller said, "And then I came along and we were able to work something out."
The old building that once was home to the Old Pure Oil Gas Station has transformed into an elegant place of relaxation and peace. Jus Because is Atmore's first day spa offering head to toe body treatments simple enough to fit in anyone's hectic schedule or the more advanced treatments for those occasions when more time is needed to pamper yourself.
Jus Because believes that if a person spends a little time on themselves each day, they will achieve a greater inner beauty. The goal of the day spa is to help condition clients mentally, spiritually and physically to achieve that beauty.
Customers can have a relaxing body massage in as little as fifteen minutes to ease muscle tension or stress. The Back to Basic Massage is a soothing, satisfying introduction to the benefits of massage.
Miller offers a Swedish massage and a therapeutic deep tissue massage as well. An improvement of circulation, relaxation, stress reduction and relieve of muscle tension are just a few of the benefits from the Swedish massage. The deep tissue works to release chronic pain using deep pressure and slow strokes across the muscles.
Mothers-to-be can be pampered with a prenatal massage that is designed to provide relaxation, reduce neck and back pain and relieve stress on weight bearing joints. This treatment also relieves edema.
Clients can also experience a unique body treatment, Detoxifying Cellulite Reduction Body Wrap. It is designed to pull toxins from the skin, transport vital nutrients through the epidermis softening, cleansing, and repairing skin tissue. The therapeutic agents penetrate the cell barrier and carry herbal substances directly into fat pockets to liquefy and allow fat to pass through cell walls for excretion.
A Warm Paraffin Body Wrap will give a soothing treatment of moisturizing collagen lotion to problem areas such as elbows, knees, feet and neck. To purify and refine the skin a body polish can be done to buff away rough skin.
Miller also offers manicures beginning with a petite manicure that takes about 30 minutes. It includes the basic manicure with a relaxing massage, paraffin dip and polish change. Other manicures include aromatherapy soaks and a gentle reflexology massage.
Treatments for the feet can take as little as thirty minutes starting with the petite pedicure. Five other pedicures are sure to sooth those aching feet. From soaking your feet in hot lava rocks to a relaxing soak with rose petals, Jus Because has the body treatment for you.
"I love this. I originally started this so I could make my own hours." Miller said, "But now it is about the people. I love people and I love the one-on-one interaction this allows me to have with them. My clients like the one-on-one attention. They feel like they are being pampered."
