The Bellus team pulled out all the stops to give Vista Village Senior Living resident Sarah Caccioppoli an afternoon of pampering. Sarah’s spa day included her very first massage and facial. From the plush robe to the care and attentiveness of the spa team, the experience delighted Sarah and surpassed her expectations.

Amber Darrow of Bellus Academy said community service events allow students to experience the “helping others” component that is an integral part of working in the spa industry. Community service is a wonderful way for students to connect the skills they learn in the classroom with the humanitarian values that are lived out by spa professionals in their daily work,” she said.
