Estrella Apothecary & Spa is reopening this spring next to the new Copper Hen Cakery and Kitchen at 2515 Nicollet Ave.
Nissa Valdez’ spa will provide skin care, massage, and nontoxic manicures and pedicures. She will also offer sugaring, which is a waxing base with sugar, water and lemon juice.
“Most waxes have quite a few petroleum products and tree resins that are not all that holistic,” Valdez said.
Valdez is one of the few massage therapists in the state with a 300-hour certification in oncology massage.
“I try to make it a safe place for everyone to get spa services,” she said.
The spa is relocating from the One Yoga Studio at 26th & Lyndale. The shop is slated to open in March.
