LYNDSAY PLOURDE
Massage Therapist

LYNDSAY PLOURDE massage therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

My name is Lyndsay and I have been with BioSpirit since July 2014. I am a Holistic Health Practitioner specializing in massage therapy. I am very passionate about my career, experience and education. I go in to “work” everyday knowing that I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I feel extremely blessed to be able to make people feel better than when they first walked in the door. It is my job to improve the quality of life for every client. I am fortunate and blessed for that opportunity every day!

I thrive on using different forms of massage that focus on the needs of each client. Whether the need is to work on a recent injury or to just relax and relieve stress, I am able to listen and clearly understand what is needed by each client. My hands are the tools to alleviate the driving issues!

I specialize in Structural Integration (SI), also known as Rolfing. This is a deep bodywork technique that focuses on the connective tissue throughout the entire body. It is considered to be a corrective, clinical form of massage using soft tissue manipulation, specific movements and active stretches. There are endless conditions that can throw our bodies “out of wack”, from injuries and over compensation to emotional scars. S.I. is a successful tool in achieving physical optimal balance and ultimately allowing every system in the body to function optimally.

I enjoy the quote “Your life does not get better by CHANCE, it gets better by CHANGE.”

 

MEGAN JARAMILLO
Massage Therapist

MEGAN JARAMILLO Massage Therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

Megan joined BioSpirit in September 2014. Megan has been practicing massage since she was 18 years old, knowing her calling is massage and helping others with physical discomfort. In Megan’s words: I was born and raised in Lake Tahoe and have worked in multiple spas, but have found my home with Teresa (owner) at BioSpirit! My customer service philosophy is that the customer always comes first and I strive to make each client feel comfortable and to always meet their needs. I truly love everything about massage, but overall I am passionate about healing and making them happier than when they first walked in the spa. I am intuitive and proud of being able to read clients’ needs. I bring a vibrant energy to BioSpirit and I feel fortunate to do bodywork on our clients.

FRONT DESK:

TINA HARDENBERGH
Front Desk Concierge, Human Resources, Group Advocate

Coco Maliya massage therapist at Lake Tahoe Biospirit Day Spa

I joined BioSpirit in February 2014. This is the most valuable and rewarding work that I have ever done! Teresa (owner) has the most amazing philosophy when it comes to the well-being of the clients and her staff!
My background includes a career in Human Resources and Customer Service. Living in Lake Tahoe for over 20 years, I not only care about making each client’s spa experience memorable, but strive to make their entire Tahoe experience unforgettable. It’s important to me that people want to make BioSpirit and South Lake Tahoe their destination of choice. Working with this amazing group of people at BioSpirit who are absolutely committed to client satisfaction falls in line with my values and beliefs. Clients become family to us and we genuinely care about their health…mind, body and soul!

I thrive on working with pamper parties and other group events. Organizing these large (and small) groups is fun and rewarding. People love our pamper party packages and we enjoy making it an amazing day for them!

In Human Resources, I encourage self-development and value the concept of keeping our work environment healthy for all of our employees. This is made easy because of the innate focus and passion of this unique staff!

BioSpirit has a magical feel to it. The clients are literally transformed after their visit(s) with us. There isn’t anything more gratifying than seeing the healing and relaxation that we provide our clients. The transformation is exciting every time!

 

ALLISON MANCINI
Front Desk Concierge

Allison Mancini - Lake Tahoe BioSpirit Day Spa

I joined the BioSpirit team in early December 2015. This is a very happy place. I love the people I work with. It’s all about feeling good here!

This job allows me to continue my small business in housecleaning. Working at the Front Desk, answering phones, setting appointments and welcoming guests is a familiar job since I’ve done this kind of work at a chiropractic office and as a former insurance agent.

As a customer at any business, I appreciate being treated with respect and courtesy and that’s how I treat everyone whether in person or on the phone. Because I’m often the first and the last person a client speaks with, I want them to come in feeling welcome and leave knowing that we appreciate them.

I want to help make the Therapists and Estheticians jobs easier and smoother so they can concentrate on making our guests happy.

I love that for many of our clients, getting regular massage and/or facials is part of their routine. Feeling pampered and relaxed helps make them happy and successful in their homes and at work.
