Spa at Squaw Creek Donates Spa Treatments to Local Businesses

Have you ever noticed how massage therapists radiate kindness? Aestheticians emulate grace? One of the best parts of the spa is the immediate vibe of calm, gentle relaxation that you feel the second you walk through the door. At the Spa at Squaw Creek, that feeling only magnifies as you chat with everyone from the spa coordinator, to your spa therapist, to the spa manager.

People that work with people, especially in the intimate environment of a spa, exude warmth – their hands have a healing touch and their smiles are ever-present.

That staff at Spa at Squaw Creek decided to give back to the Lake Tahoe community and donate their time and skill to help to alleviate the everyday stresses of a group of local employees who work for The Family Resource Center of Truckee.

A non-profit, the Family Resource Center of Truckee is an organization dedicated to promoting social and economic success in their community by providing education, mobilizing resources, and advocating for change. They annually serve more than 1,000 local families through one-on-one services in the areas of civil legal aid, healthcare enrollment, food assistance, health education, accessing mental health resources, parental support and other safety net services.

Their team works hard to support the needs of the Tahoe Truckee community’s most marginalized and under-served members and the work is challenging and can be stressful. Spa at Squaw Creek is thrilled to be able to provide spa services to the Family Resource Center’s hardworking staff, and it’s an opportunity that our spa plans to take advantage of bi-annually, which means a new, deserving organization will get to enjoy spa treatments on the house, twice a year.
