Cape Coral day spa expansion offers greater vitality, inside and out
Imagine by Carleen, a therapeutic day spa focusing on holistic wellness and beauty, has moved to a more-central Cape Coral location almost twice the size of its former facility and reopened as Imagine Wellness Spa. The public is invited to attend a grand opening celebration from 10 am. – 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26 at 1404 Del Prado Blvd. South, Suite 100 to enjoy refreshments, raffles, introductory packages and special offers from several skin care manufacturers who will be in attendance.
Owner and esthetician Carleen McIlveen opened Imagine by Carleen as a small skin care and makeup studio on Coronado Parkway in 2013 before expanding from 600 to 1,850 square feet by relocating to 1718 Cape Coral Parkway East. There she offered services including skin treatments, massage, body wrapping, makeup, oncology esthetics, wellness and life coaching. With special training as a certified Oncology Esthetician, McIlveen cultivated a unique day spa experience that nurtures clients, helping them develop confidence and a healthy glow inside and out.
Imagine Wellness Spa will represent an expansion from 1,850 to 3,300 square feet, allowing a growing roster of personnel and services. The new facility’s nine treatment rooms will help additional clients benefit from the emphasis on whole-person vitality. A workshop space will house educational seminars and private yoga instruction. A schedule of classes to begin this spring will soon be published, including restorative yoga and assisted stretching. Couples massage will be a new offering. An elegant brow and lash bar is coming soon. Plans also include permanent makeup services.
McIlveen is currently joined by six like-minded therapists, technicians and coaches dedicated to helping clients achieve their goals. The expansion will include several more, plus staff to oversee administration. Also, in order to serve clients better, Licensed Massage Therapist Lucille Trice has undergone the training necessary to become a licensed esthetician.
In addition to aesthetics and integrative bodywork modalities, Imagine Wellness Spa will continue to work in tandem with treatment plans for diagnoses such as rosacea, high blood pressure and tendinitis. Clients are supported to be accountable for their next level of success and improved quality of life.
Imagine’s WISDOM Integrative Therapies, funded through the Cape Coral Community Foundation, will also remain a priority. The spa provides complementary treatments on a donation basis to alleviate the side effects of cancer, cancer treatments and other conditions that compromise the immune system. Imagine by Carleen set up the fund in April, 2016, named after the acronym for Weakened Immune Systems from Disease or Medication. WISDOM services include oncology facials, massage, manual lymph drainage, hand and foot treatments, scalp treatments, camouflage makeup, aromatherapy, meditation and reiki.
