“Personalized Facial”

“The personalized facial at The Compass Spa was a luxurious treat. It included fresh, organic ingredients and essential oils for what my skin needed, plus additional attention to my neck, shoulders and even feet. Way more service included than I’ve seen in other facial treatments.”

“The best you will find”

I have been a very long time client of Kristine’s and I am so happy she opened this place. Very sad to see her leave South Florida as I always loved it when I looked in my calendar and see that today is an appointment day there, it made me feel good even before I walk in the door. You really need to book an appointment and see for yourself just how wonderful a spa she has created in Tampa. You will be very pleased and I am sure become a long time client too.
