Ribbon-cutting ceremony and first live demo April 18, 11 a.m. at The Tower Club next to Tyson’s Corner Mall in McLean, VA Fairfax, Virginia – April 1, 2015 — Are you a busy, career woman with no time for traditional salon appointments and wish you could have a spa experience in the comfort of your own home? In the Nick of Time: The Elite Mobile Spa is the convenient, luxurious solution.
A team of licensed professional manicurists, massage therapists, estheticians and hairstylists will come to your home and create the ultimate spa experience in your living room. They bring all of the equipment and supplies: a massage table, aromatherapy, manicurist table and even a portable shampoo sink and portable power source. The team provides just what you need for luxurious “me time” to doing something special for a friend’s birthday, bridal or baby shower. At each visit, two team members arrive at your home. They will be dressed business casual, have identifiable name badges and will have all the tools and equipment needed for your appointment.
They will even provide baby- sitting services while you are enjoying your spa savoir –faire.
Ashley M. Ivey, owner and founder, conceived the idea of the mobile spa service (inthenickoftimespa.com) when she was going through a challenging time. In 2004, at the age of 18, she was diagnosed with a severe case of multiple sclerosis, a progressive debilitating neuromuscular disease. Months of chemotherapy, loss of her hair and numerous hospitalizations had taken a toll on her body and emotions. One day after a chemotherapy session her parents, in an effort to boost her spirits, surprised her with a manicure and pedicure in her home. Later, when her hair grew back – a stylist came to the house to do her hair.
“Both experiences were awesome,” says Ashley. It was then the seed was planted for what now has become, In the Nick of Time: The Elite Mobile Spa. In 2014 after another bout of MS, Ashley was determined to transition from a wheel chair to wearing heels again. “The memory of my mani-pedi and other services resurfaced again. I thought, what could be better for a busy, career-minded woman, who has no time for herself than an exclusive spa service that rolls to her door just in the nick of time to lift her spirits?”
Ashley’s parents are Anthony and Donna Ivey, owners of I-CARE- Home Health, specializing in neuro care – providing home health care in the DMV for over 21 years. In the Nick of Time donates home spa services to I-CARE customers.
Ashley and her team will be cutting a congratulatory ribbon on April 18, 2015 at the grand opening of In the Nick of Time sponsored by the Tyson’s Regional Chamber of Commerce. The event will be held at the Tyson’s Tower Club, 8000 Towers Crescent Drive, # 1700 Vienna, VA. 11- 1 pm. There will be live demonstrations of spa services.
