WESTFIELD, NJ — Everlasting Haven Spa & Wellness Studio recently held its grand opening  in Downtown Westfield. Located at 227 South Ave., the spa offers a range of services, including skin care treatment, hair removal and massage therapy.

“My goal is to have a reputable name,” owner Gina Vilca said. “I want the quality to speak for itself and to develop a reputation where people want to come from all over the place to have this experience.”

Vilca said that her expertise in sugaring, an organic hair removal alternative to waxing, sets her apart from other spas. She said she has been certified in sugaring for over 20 years and was one of the first sugaring practitioners in New Jersey. Vilca said that she wants to create a sanctuary for her clients to come to escape, which led her to name her spa Everlasting Haven.

“I want my guests to have an exceptional experience,” Vilca said. “I want them to experience a difference in their skin care and their body when they leave from a massage. I want to make a difference in my clients’ wellness.”

Vilca said she never expected to start her business in Westfield because she believed the town was out of her price range. The opportunity to establish her business in Westfield arose in what she called “an amazing accident” when she stumbled upon a storefront that she could afford. She said she is looking forward to collaborating with other local businesses.

“Westfield is a beautiful town,” Vilca said. “I’ve never seen such a town so invested in one another.”
