    Cici Coffee from Natural Body

    in Health

    Join SPAA Executive Director Melinda Minton as she speaks with Cici Coffee, founder of Natural Body and 10 Ten Nail Bar.

    In 1989 when Cici Coffee and Patti Beggs founded Natural Body, hardly anyone had heard of, let alone been to a “day spa.” Up to that time, spas were generally considered luxury escapes for the rich and famous, and few men or women had the opportunity to experience the healing of body work or the rejuvenation of professional skin care.”

    But when they added a day spa to their highly successful natural products company, they joined an innovative group of spa operators that led nothing short of a wellness revolution. The growth of day spas launched a revolution in health, beauty and wellness that has inspired men and women around the world to care for their bodies and their inner-selves in a whole new way.

    Natural Body continues to be a leader in the spa community, striving to provide the highest quality services in the most inviting environments. In addition to its award-winning services and successful body care retail, Natural Body launched the popular new 10Ten Nail Bars where guests receive mani and pedi treatments in a unique spa atmosphere.
