Our team loves professionals and this week we met with The MJ Treatment Spa for professional back and foot massage. Even design of the spa is very relaxing and is made in Asian style with Buddha’s heads to make it so stylish.
Our expert came for deep tissue massage but after MJ evaluated her body she decided to customize treatment specifically for her body needs! Read more about our visit and interview with MJ.
MJ, How did your beauty journey begin?
My beauty journey started at an early age. My mother went to beauty school at the age of 19 and would give me facials and taught me how to take care of my skin at an early age.
What has inspired you to open a spa?
I grew up around entrepreneurial parents and I knew one day I wanted to own my own business. As the spa and wellness industry rises, I wanted to open my own unique spa tailored to men and women offering different spa services. Sad to say, but The Bronx doesn’t have any good spas so I was inspired in opening my own business at the age of 40. I started my business in a studio apartment basement of my parent’s house and within four years I was able to expand and find a bigger space. Starting out as a one-woman-show allowed me to move and have the business of my dreams.
You provided our expert with a customized massage – please tell us about the process and what was included
The expert from MyTopFace was complaining of neck and shoulder tension and wanted deep tissue but as I was massaging her I felt she could benefit from a blend of different techniques to help her with tightness and tension. I blended Thai massage, hot stones, cupping, stretching and deep tissue to her treatment.

You look gorgeous what’s your beauty hack to keep fit and youthful skin?
Well, thank you for the compliment. My beauty secret is not wearing a lot of makeup and making sure my skin is always cleansed and moisturized. I never leave my house without applying SPF. I have facials once a month to maintain my skin looking youthful and glowing.
We were surprised that you also offer belly and body casting – how did you come up with this idea?
I had a friend that was pregnant at the time and wanted to know if I can do a belly cast on her. So it took off from there. I have an art and fashion background so belly casting came naturally to me.
Do you offer massages for pregnant women?
Yes but not recommended during the first trimester. The client must be at least 13 weeks (2nd trimester) to receive a prenatal massage. Hot mamas who come in are only booked with a therapist who has taken the prenatal certification course. Professional development is extremely important to us.
What about couples massage?
Yes, we offer a variety of techniques to accommodate our couples.
You chose image skincare brand for facial services, how do you like it?
We have been using Image Skincare products for 6 years now and we love their products. All of us at the spa also use Image Skincare for our skin regimen. However, in the near feature, we will be introducing different professional brands to complement what we already have.
What’re healthy-lifestyle tips can you suggest to our readers?
Stay hydrated, rested and healthy. Treat yourself to regular massages and facials to keep you relaxed and balanced.
