Posted on June 26, 2024

Besides the traditional spa treatments of massages, facials, waxing, and spray tanning, the spa also provides unique holistic treatments. Salt halotherapy, red light therapy, infrared light sauna, and detox foot baths are just a few of the treatments designed to detox and restore health.

Born and raised in Temple, owner Mark Anders always wanted to own his business. After researching for a few years with his wife, Linda Anders, they decided to open a spa that offered modalities that no other spa in Central Texas provides. She was also born and raised in Central Texas and spent 25 years in the medical field, working in medical records, medical billing, and medical coding. For the past 14 years, she has been the caretaker of her disabled brother.

Linda learned about salt halotherapy and researched other holistic treatments for the spa. Mark saved for years while selling insurance, but when he needed additional funding, he turned to Texell for a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan.

“I’ve been a Texell member since 1978, so it made sense to go with them to get a small business loan,” said Mark. He met one of Texell’s Business Officers at a networking event and liked the professionalism and knowledge she shared.

The spa opened in September 2023 and has since added more services and employees. His daughter, Jaci, manages the spa and has a background in healthcare. Besides crafting the spa into a space to relax, Jaci developed packages to help customers save on services. Memberships are also available, allowing customers to receive discounts on selected services and products.

Holistic treatments, like salt halotherapy and light therapy, revive the entire body. If you have asthma or trouble breathing, salt halotherapy opens up airways, relieves eczema, and unclogs pores and congestion. Light therapy transforms your skin by smoothing wrinkles and lines, and infrared light therapy helps relieve chronic pain and high blood pressure.

Other unique treatments at Spa Riffic include HyperVibe whole body vibration, Kloud+PEMA mat, and BrainTap guided meditation. HyperVibe works out all your muscles and improves joint health. To reduce stress and improve clarity, lie down on the Kloud+PEMA mat while it releases electromagnetic pulses. If you need to calm your mind, the BrainTap guided meditation headset emits gentle pulses of light and sound and allows you to choose the program that best suits you from improving balance, learning, or focus.

The spa’s cosmetologists and estheticians dedicate themselves to guiding others on their skincare journey with confidence. Besides waxing and facials, they provide services to simplify your beauty routine like eyelash lifting, brow lamination, and tinting lashes and eyebrows.
