Marking its tenth anniversary, OZssage Spa, a massage and spa facility in the Big Sky meadow, is adding a new suite.

The Serenity Suite and adjoining Barefoot Spa will offer small group services in a spacious apartment above OZssage’s main area, and can accommodate up to five people. With a full spa and treatment menu, packages will range from 90 minutes to five hours.

Owner Jacquie Rager says the suite will be perfect for women’s groups, and for families or couples to get treatments together. Also, it will be a good spot for mothers who can’t find someone to look after a small child, because, Rager says, “there is plenty of room and they won’t disturb anyone.”

The open suite has contemporary Zen decoration and windows opening toward a view of the ski resorts.

“You leave your shoes at the door,” Rager says, pointing out OZssage’s efforts to create a private space for true relaxation. “People won’t be rushed up here.”

All of OZssage’s eight therapists are certified, and the staff turnover rate is low. With a loyal and growing clientele, they needed to expand.

“I have clients that have been with me since day one,” Rager said. “We moved into this building three years ago and are already running out of space.” Plus, she saw a need to add a day spa.

The addition of the barefoot spa was a reaction to learning more about Eastern medicine, and the benefits the body can receive through the feet, Rager said. “All of our treatments are therapeutic—they are not pedicures, however they are relaxing and hydrating.”

Other services in the new facility include massage chairs, facials, warm neck wraps, acupressure, Thai massage, yoga and catering.

Rager imagines clients bringing a bottle of champagne, relaxing in the massage chairs while experiencing therapeutic foot scrubs, soaks and massages.
