Joe's Body Shop & Debbi's Aromatherapy
(Soon becoming the Solasta Wellness Center)
Joe and Debbi's business is the home for the school. Being a night program we simply convert from Joe's Body Shop during the day to the Colorado Springs school of Massage at night. Debbi's aromatherapy also becomes the school store for our students and both shops double as the student massage clinic where our students get to train in a professional massage studio. Our students are offered a special student discount on their oils, lotions and other massage supplies. Students can also buy their massage equipment (massage chairs, tables, and other equipment) at huge discounts too!
