July 14, 2011

McCombs TODAY interviewed Alissa Bayer, founder of milk + honey Spa. She talks about her MBA experience at McCombs, what led her to the spa industry, and what she sees ahead in the spa industry. Alissa prides herself on working with her Spa Partisans, and that’s why the title of the interview fits perfectly; “The Priority of Pampering Employees.”

Alissa Bayer, MBA ’04, arrived in Austin from San Francisco in 2002 to pursue a business degree. She served as a venture capitalist fellow at McCombs, giving her the opportunity to work closely with the partner of a local venture capital firm. Upon graduation she started a business of her own, opening milk + honey Spa in 2006.

Bayer now operates two locations of milk + honey Spa in Austin and is opening another within the next year. milk + honey was named the top day spa in Texas by Les Nouvelles Esthétiques and offers a full range of spa treatments from massages to waxing to nail therapy.

milk + honey Featured in Baltimore Magazine

November 17, 2010

In the travel blog of Charm City’s eponymous magazine, write Janelle Diamond talks about her visit to Austin.

First some good observations about how locally focused Austin is (yay!):

I think one of the biggest differences between Austin and many other cities is how much support the local shops receive—and other local vendors/designers. It’s such a healthy environment for a small, local business.

And then a nice visit to milk + honey:

My sister surprised me with a prenatal massage on my first day at the beautiful and calming Milk & Honey Spa in the 2nd Street District. It’s small and charming and I left there with a relaxation hangover.

Welcomed by the soothing scents and warm ambiance, I realized right away that this was a retreat not just for the body, but also for my mind. Treatments are carried out in private cocoon-like booths with comfy chairs, separated by drapes.  Milk + honey delivers treatments, using  all sorts of heavenly fragrances, but the key ingredients are actually a base of in-fact milk and honey, simple yet old world. The treatments are designed to relax, some to invigorate, and others to heal.
