Tara Anne Thomas

Esthetician, Lead Waxer and Assistant Manager

Owner, Massage Therapist

and Esthetician

Jessica moved to Austin in 2012 and it has quickly become her home and a great place to live out her passion for esthetics and massage. Jessica attended Leons Studio One Cosmetology school in NY in 2002 and attended The Lauterstien Conway school of massage in Austin, TX  allowing her to offer more services to her clients.  A woman of many trades Jessica  is licensed as both an Eshetician and Massage Therapist with continued training in Ashiatsu massage. She considers herself a brow shaping guru, highly experienced waxing specialist and loves giving her clients beautiful skin.

When it comes to massage Jessica's focus is Ashiatsu, deep tissue, and sports massage. With a background in ballet and modern dance Jessica has always had interest in the movement of the body which has lead her to massage. Jessica has studied many different types of massage modalities including  Ashiatsu Massage (which is a Westernized barefoot massage and oriental bar therapy), which made it possible for her to combine her love for dance and massage into one. Using her feet in movement is something Jessica has enjoyed in dance for years and is excited to bring this movement into her massage practice.
In 2015 Jessica decided to open Glow Spa and Wax House, using her 10 years of industry experience to give the Austin area a modern spa alternative. She has followed many European trends while searching for pure skin care lines and spent a large amount of time researching ingredients to find true organic brands. She also continually searches for new remedies and advanced techniques for natural skincare, waxing and massage. Through all this research and having worked with several different product lines and waxes she selected only the best all natural and organic products to be used on clients of her spa and waxing salon.
