Epicure Day Spa recognized as March HealthyOxford|Business

Monthly recognition continues for local businesses making wellness a priority.

Oxford, March 2017: RebelWell continues to highlight Oxford businesses that make health and wellness a priority in the workplace. This month’s spotlight is placed on Epicure Day Spa.

It’s easy to see how a local day spa aligns with health and wellness. After all, they provide everything from deep tissue massages to quiet, electronics-free zones to rejuvenating products for the mind and body. It’s impossible to not feel total relaxation after a few minutes inside Epicure Day Spa. However, Lindsey Baquie, owner of Epicure, stands behind the importance of overall wellness for not only her customers but for her employees too. Baquie takes an extra step to ensure her staff makes time for their own wellness needs. She even picks up the tab.

“My amazing staff spends their days taking care of our customers and oftentimes, it’s so easy to forget about your own wellness needs,” said Baquie. “As a small business owner, it’s important to me for my staff to take care of themselves.”

Epicure’s business account at Pure Barre Oxford is open to all staff to take classes whenever they choose. Baquie also utilizes private group fitness opportunities for her staff as celebrations for milestones and anniversaries. Baquie adds, “I love offering healthy activities for the staff. A private yoga class is a great way for us to bond outside of the regular work day and be active.”

In addition to physical activity needs, Epicure maintains fresh, naturally flavored waters at the spa. Waters are generously offered to clients which also serves as a great reminder to staff to stay hydrated. “Skin is a big part of our business and water is so important in maintaining healthy skin and glow.” says Baquie, “The visibility of water around the spa offers that reminder to the employees to stay hydrated.”

Epicure Day Spa will display the RebelWell Golden Sneaker trophy in the lobby of the spa for the upcoming weeks and permanently display the HealthyOxford|Business window decal signifying they are doing outstanding things in the wellness space.
