aSPAthecary is a concept I have had in my mind for a few years now. I have always loved the idea of mixing and concocting essential oils and lotions and botanicals together. I have always loved the old time apothecary/chemist shops where people went to get their wellness items and prescriptions mixed right there. Apothecary's were also mixing herbs and botanicals to help people with ailments! It made sense to me that a salon and spa should have those options and I made up a new word, aSPAthecary! As for the design? What better than Shabby Chic, whites, cream, blue and botanical colors combined with Victorian Style (the era of the Apothecary) with rough wood, distressed but beautiful and cozy!
After 14 years in the salon and hospitality industry, I am finally ready to start my own venture! I love this industry and I wanted to bring a fresh, natural alternative while still keeping the integrity of the services. I have honed my skills and ideas to bring the public the very best products and the most talented and conscientious professionals together.
I have always found botanicals and natural products to be my favorite for relaxation and I love the shabby chic look! It makes me smile and feel good so I hope you all will enjoy the salon and the vision and find aSPAthecary a comfortable, enjoyable refuge from your daily stress!
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do and will love to have you come in to visit!
aSPAthecary Salon and Spa Policies
aSPAthecary Salon and Spa is committed to providing a relaxing atmosphere. The following Salon and Spa Policies are intended to enhance everyone’s experience with us.
Please arrive 10- 15 minutes in advance of salon and spa treatments.
Services will begin and end on time as a courtesy to the next guest.
As a courtesy, we attempt to confirm all appointments. You are invited to telephone, as well, prior to your appointment to confirm exact times, services, and ask any questions you may have.
We understand that sometimes being late is unavoidable. However, depending on circumstances, we may be forced to shorten or reschedule your service.
Clients who arrive late will be charged in full for their scheduled session, but will receive an abbreviated, pro-rated session. For example, if you scheduled an hour session and arrive 15 minutes late, you will be charged for that hour session but will only receive 45 minutes of treatment for that session, including consultation and changing time.
We have reserved time and space especially for you and require 24 hours notice for all appointments. If less than the required notice is given, we will charge a cancellation fee of $10.00 for services under $50 and $15.00 fee for services over $50 to your account. If you no-show any appointment we will charge your account half of the booked service.
We do send text message confirmations two days prior to your appointment and ask you do confirm your appointment via text. If you do need to cancel or reschedule, you can call us at 215-538-0555, YOU CANNOT TEXT BACK TO THE NUMBER THAT SENT THE TEXT. My software company sends these text from multiple numbers that are not the salon number. If your appointment is not confirmed by the day before your appointment, we will call you to confirm your appointment and if you do not reach out to us, we reserve the right to remove/cancel your appointment for other clients and we will consider you a no show and charge your account half of your service.
For Lasio keratin treatments and appointments longer than 3 hours, we do require a deposit of 25% of your service at the time of your consultation. This deposit will be deducted from your service total at time of actual appointment. If you cancel your appointment in less than 24 hours or no-show your appointment you forfeit your deposit.
aSPAthecary requires 48 hours notice for group and package appointment cancellations/rescheduling and will incur a charge of 20% of the total services.
