with Bridget Riley
February 11, 2020
Pampered Spirit Wellness Centers Owner/Operator Bridget Riley entered the spa wellness business in 1998 when she obtained her massage therapy certification. “I went to Garden State Center for Holistic Health Care, a small school in Lakewood, NJ. At that time, the school focused on technique and self-development. I found the anatomy and physiology fairly easy as I had just completed my BA degree in science, and so I was able to concentrate on the finer points of massage.” Massage therapy was not a popular vocation in the early 90s. The job market mostly consisted of spas in hotels, destination locations or vacation spots.Bridget believes massage is a vehicle to wellness and she strives to offer her clients the most beneficial treatment possible. For the therapist, massage is also a way to connect with another individual. Once she makes that connection with someone, her focus changes. Bridget saw an untapped niche in the spa industry and began developing a new business model for a mobile spa business. The Pampered Spirit Mobile Massage and Spa was born. Today, The Pampered Spirit Mobile Massage and Spa has a network of over 40 therapists throughout NJ and NY, specializing in individual services, corporate events and spa parties. “The business is busy and I love what Pampered Spirit Mobile has developed into,” exclaims Bridget.
With the eye of an entrepreneur, Bridget was looking for the next wave of opportunity. A location was the next logical step in the evolution process as a therapist and business owner. The space in the newly created Pampered Spirit Wellness Center is intimate, warm, clean and the salt is concentrated enough that you might taste a touch on your lips. It provides an opportunity to relax, rest and breathe deeply.
Bridget feels incredibly excited and blessed to be able to bring The Pampered Spirit to this location in Point Pleasant!
