Savor the Serenity

Give the gift of relaxation with Spa Vida Massage & Day Spa

While working toward a degree in architectural design, Melody Wang-Patterson found a fascination with the spa industry. That fascination was enough for her to take the leap and open her first spa, bringing in her knowledge of design. Having heard of Seattle’s potential for business growth, she decided to set up shop in the Emerald City and established a space fit for 50 employees.

Fast forward and Wang-Patterson moved across the country to Texas. She took up a job as an IT consultant during the pandemic, but quickly realized where her heart lies—in the pursuit of wellness. From there evolved her vision for the luxurious, personalized services offered at Spa Vida.

“Cedar Park is a great city to develop a new spa. People here are so friendly and supportive, always welcoming you like family,” says Wang-Patterson. “One of the most memorable moments since we opened was when a husband brought his wife in to surprise her with a spa package. We pampered her with the best massage and facial experiences.”

Wang-Patterson aims for Spa Vida to be a partner in self-care and self-love, accomplishing this through Eastern wellness techniques, such as cupping, gua sha, and reflexology. With the addition of organic skincare products in the facial room, she also wishes for women to become more confident in their looks. Ultimately, Spa Vida’s treatments are designed with your mood in mind.

“I love what I do—helping women to be happy and healthy after coming to the spa regularly, and getting to see them in person and building long-term relationships,” says Wang-Patterson. “Being the owner of the business, I get to work with wonderful employees. Their hard work and dedication to our clients touches my heart.”
