There are spa business owners who are even operating without a brick-and-mortar spa at all. Mobile spa services are being provided at corporate events, concerts, swanky special events, home gatherings, bridal parties and even family reunions. Says Tia Lanzetta, president of Spa Cucina in Del Mar, a trendy beach town in southern California, "Mobile spas provide an ideal career niche for free-spirited practitioners who simply don't want to have to show up at the same place every day to enjoy a lucrative livelihood." Mobile spa parties are creating a sensation with people who are looking for the convenience of bringing the spa directly to a given location, or for people who are looking for novel ways to entertain at a gathering of friends or family.
