I found that this was the overall intent of the business; a business that was not just trying to welcome in the “spa type” clients, which I thought its intent was, but provide a community for a wide variety of people. In the waiting room, the different types of people clearly showed this variety. An elderly man with a medical condition, a biker couple consumed by leather, a high school volleyball player straight from practice and her mother who was in need of a good massage after a long day
