Palestine, TX — Since opening Jamie’s Therapeutic Touch four years ago, Jamie Pettiette-Rhone has always strived to bring the best, most up-to-date spa treatments to the people of Palestine.
Starting out on her own as a certified skin care therapist (or aesthetician) on Mallard Street, Rhone later moved her business to a larger location on Palestine Avenue and added treatments like Ionithermie and Aqua Detox as well as massage therapy to her operation.
“I am always educating myself on the latest treatments and trends out there so I can offer them to my clients,” she said in a recent interview. “I want to make people feel better, both inside and out.”
In keeping up with the day spa’s growth Rhone has added a larger staff, including two massage therapists, Christine Pennington and Kelly Neal; three hair stylists Sondra Walker, Karen Buth and Jamie Lipsey; a barber, Georgia Neal and a second aesthetician Amy Gordan. Pennington also serves as the spa’s nail tech.
Rhone herself also has boosted her own credentials, recently becoming a licensed massage therapist and a Hollywood Expressions makeup artist.
“To see how the business has grown over the last four years is the dream I have always had for it,” Rhone said. “I have a great group of technicians here, all with unique talents.”
In addition to her ever-expanding services, Rhone also strives to grow her product line. She has added a new makeup line, Jane Iredale, to her list of spa-quality product offerings as well as Eye Kandy and liquid detox kits.
“Jane Iredale is the highest quality makeup one can buy,” Rhone said. “There are no fragrances, chemicals or FD&C dyes in it — nothing that is questionable for your skin.
“It can only be purchased from cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists or from a licensed skin care professional,” she added.
Other products and services offered at Jamie’s include: a second Aqua Detox machine; the Dermalogica skin care line; customized spa packages for couples, bridal parties, etc.; at-home spa parties; cellulite treatments; weight-loss patches; Tahitian Noni products; chocolate manicures and pedicures; eyebrow and eyelash dyeing; facials and body wraps.
“I want to thank my clients for believing in me and what I am trying to do for the people of Palestine,” Rhone said. “I thank them for their loyalty, their trust and support of my business for the last four years.
