Tell us about yourself
When I first moved to Savannah, Georgia, in 2014, I fell in love with this city. I did some research and noticed there wasn't a mobile massage company here. In 2016, I created Balance Mobile Massage to provide massages to locals and tourists. My business evolved, and I thought, why not provide on-demand mobile spa treatments too? Balance Mobile Spa was created, and now we offer massages, facials, body treatments, and nail treatments. We have helped hotels, especially with our business hours. Day spas normally close at p.m., but.m., but we until open until ten p.m.in love this city.
