Veronica Horton - Owner, Licensed Esthetician & Certified Massage Therapist

Veronica was born and raised in El Paso, Texas where she shared a very small house (900 sq ft) with 7 sisters and 3 brothers. When Veronica was 22, she moved to California and lived in Pleasanton and So. San Francisco. She worked in Accounting for 15 years but became bored and decided to become a make-up artist. This led to to beauty school where she earned her license as an Esthetician.

She quickly realized she loved facials, waxing and tinting because it was peaceful and fun. She did very well in beauty school and received a scholarship to attend school in LA, where the owner of the school convinced her to go into massage. She graduated from California Beauty School in Walnut Creek and immediately started attending classes at the National Holistic Institute College of Massage Therapy in Emeryville. Her first job was at the Hair and Nail Emporium in 1988.

Veronica then rented a 8x10 room with four bare walls but quickly added a sink, cabinets and her artistic touch. For the first 2 years she kept herself busy reading, learning ingredients and taking classes every Monday. She worked long hours and took up to 25 clients per week to get her clientele going. Today she has a thriving and loyal clientele, some of whom have been getting pampered by her for over 20 years.

In May of 2005, she and her husband Ken purchased a house at 377 St. Mary Street in Pleasanton, CA. They worked tirelessly to remodel and decorate the house to be the elegant and beautiful spa it is today. Veronica is an extremely motivated person whose passion and commitment to her spa and clients is evident in everything she does.

Her enthusiasm for life, playfulness, loving heart and deep rooted faith in God are what make her special to all who know her. Not to mention...her hands are amazing! So if you haven't had a massage by her, you don't know what you're missing!
