Steffanie speaks three languages: Spanish, English, & SKIN! She has been making waves in the hospitality industry for over ten years. She’s passionate about working closely with people & her refined love for glamour, health & wellness make her a joy to work with. After working as the retail coordinator at Lantana spa (JW Marriott) for many years, she fell in love with the world of skincare & leaped towards her newly-found passion & become a licensed esthetician. She became a star pupal at Aveda Arts & Science Institute San Antonio & never looked back. Since her licensing, she has worked at chain spas, high end resorts, & small holistic spas where she has done extensive product testing & experimentation. Her research & furthered education of natural & pharmaceutical grade skincare lines, gives her the upper edge in a constantly growing spa-product market. Don't let her extensive business knowledge fool you. She spends most of her down time near bodies of water (testing sun screen…of course) or on Instagram looking at the latest color palettes from the Jeffery Star collection. She’s fun, always has a smile, & will surprise you with her quick wit & humor.
Alma was born & raised in San Antonio. She's always had a passion for her city & the people that make it thrive. That passion has led her to wanting to help people relieve their stresses and momentarily escape to a state beyond space & time. At age 19 she heard massage school shouting her name and fell in love with the anatomy, the physiology & the industry as a whole. Her passion has translated through her hands & her massages speak better than our words ever could. Shortly after receiving her license she interviewed for a high end spa & landed the job "hands down" (pun intended).
Over the past 13 years of her massage career, she's become the Lead Massage therapist for San Antonio's highest rated spa, made waves in the luxury resort and spa industry & mastered her craft. She has trained providers, written protocols & has networked with spa industry professionals & retailers from all over the southwest region. Yet at the end of the day, her number one wish is that she wants people to know that self care is affordable & necessary. This has led her to a new chapter in her life- owning a day spa. Alma wants everyone to feel comfortable with massage & has always practiced open & honest communication with her clients. Alma will listen to your needs & walk you through what she believe is the best course of action to achieve pain relief and relaxation.
Her years of experience made her the therapist she is today, but her passion is something that you HAVE to experience yourself. Book a service at Bloom Day Spa today!
