Hello dear friends of spa manzanita,

I am writing to you all today to let you know that I have sold spa manzanita.

Back in 2006 when I thought opening a day spa in Manzanita “might work” and “someone should do it, so why not me? I had no idea of what an amazing journey I would go down. So so many stories, adventures and relationships, tears and success!

I feel very blessed (and a bit lucky), to have created this wonderful place in our beautiful town. But there is no way I could have done it without your support and kindness. This very much includes the spa staff over the years. I was very fortunate to have such a great team along the way.

I will truly miss seeing you walk in the door of the spa, your smile and hugs that have been there over the many years, but they are all held in my heart forever!

The new owner Maggie is absolutely wonderful, again I have been blessed with the most perfect person to take the spa on and continue to service our community. Not only is she the new owner of spa manzanita but she is a new dear friend of mine.

I am not going away (except for a 2 week road trip in May in my new Transit van), my husband Mike and I are staying right here. I plan on continuing my work as a Health/Wellness Coach, and of course surfing, fishing and having fun any way I can.

Gratitude fills my heart right now, and a bit of sadness, but mostly joy and love!

Thank you,

Janice Gaines-Ehlen
