Spa Experience’s Connie Lewis continues to expand expertise, services

What better way to start the new year than with a luxurious spa visit on Siesta Key?
“Taking a few hours off from the world to relax, refresh and to be taken care of by trained spa professionals is incredibly beneficial for your well-being,” said Connie Lewis, owner of Spa Experience Siesta Key, of the idea.
During a professional career spanning close to 30 years, Lewis has owned and managed two spas on Siesta Key. She has treated and counseled thousands of clients who have benefitted from her knowledge and dedication to health and wellness. As 2023 begins, Lewis is celebrating the second anniversary of her new spacious spa at 5700 Midnight Pass Rd.
With the winter season in full swing, Lewis is excited about the future of her business and for Siesta Key. “So many long-time clients and visitors have returned to the Key and to our spa,” she said. “It’s just wonderful to see our clients and friends again.”
In 2021, Lewis made the decision to expand and move ahead.
“Spa Experience Siesta Key is an extension of my former day spa in Siesta Key Village that served clients for 22 years,” she said. “Our new larger space gives us the ability to enhance our services and offer acupuncture, couples massage and to offer small groups of up to eight at a time. All of which have proven to be very popular.”
Last year, Lewis attended the three-week Life Transformation Program at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach.
“While there, I discovered the valuable healing modalities of two therapeutic treatments: The QRS, a pulsed electromagnetic therapy mat, and the FDA-approved H-Wave energy therapy. Both have been proven successful in treating a variety of health challenges,” she said.
“Professional education is something that I value highly. I felt that it was important to bring both of these back to Spa Experience Siesta Key.”
Lewis recommends that clients add a QRS or H-Wave session to a massage or facial.
“Having experienced the QRS myself, I can say that it is tremendously helpful for relieving tension in the body,” she said.
For those looking for a way to ease their pain and restore mobility, Lewis recommends the H-Wave energy therapy.
“It works to eliminate pain and restore function. It can also help to increase circulation in the muscles,” she said.
When it comes to pure pampering and relaxing spa treatments, Lewis has seen to that, too.
Spa Experience clients enjoy traditional hot stone massage and sports massage treatments, acupuncture, trigger point therapy, Reiki, cupping, and CBD oil massage.
“We have five large comfortable treatment rooms, a room especially for couples and a group room that can hold three people at the same time,” she explained. “Honeymooners, vacationing couples and many residents who want to enjoy a soothing massage together really enjoy it.”
Many brides-to-be have discovered Spa Experience Siesta Key as a fun destination spot, a place to share a few hours with their bridesmaids before the big day. Families and friends who are enjoying a Siesta Key reunion have also discovered Spa Experience Siesta Key.
Lewis also has a large following of clients who visit her spa for customized facials, tailored to each person’s needs and preferences.
“We use Pevonia Botanica Skincare, an organic skin and body line, exclusively. For many clients, I recommend the Facial Sculpting Micro Current Facelift. It stimulates collagen production while lifting and tightening the muscles along the jawline,” she said.
The Spa Experience Siesta Key signature facial is also popular.
“We begin with an exfoliating fruit enzyme peel, followed by skin pampering and cleaning with light massage strokes for stimulation and relaxation. Our clients also enjoy a relaxing head, neck and shoulder massage. At the end of the facial, a licensed aesthetician performs a skin analysis to determine which specific serums, oils, and creams our clients may benefit from,” said Lewis.
“I am committed to offering my clients the finest spa services. It’s a very exciting and rewarding time. Spa Experience Siesta key is an oasis where our clients can relax, improve their sense of well-being and retreat. They leave us feeling beautiful, happy and relaxed,” she added.
All clients are offered the option of a private consultation and coaching time. Since 1994, vacationers and residents have come to know Lewis and her hand-picked experienced, trained staff.
