Welcome to Aurora Spa
Need a little time just for you? Looking for a way to unwind? Want to look and feel your best without resorting to cosmetic surgery or invasive treatments? You've come to the right place.
Aurora Spa is an oasis of relaxation and rejuvenation in Uptown. We offer a unique blend of traditional treatments, holistic therapies, highly effective natural skin care products, and the latest in therapeutic therapies. Our wide array of skin care and body treatments include facials for virtually every skin type, including our renowned deep cleansing European facial, massage therapy of all kinds, cellulite reduction, colonics, non-surgical facelifts, infrared sauna and more. Moreover, we take classes, learn new techniques, and update our services on an ongoing basis to ensure you of the latest in beauty and natural health care.
And because we recognize that healthy and beauty are strongly interconnected, we promote both with treatments designed to detoxify, repair and renew, and enhance.
The setting is as inviting as our treatments
A pleasing environment sets the stage for a wonderful spa experience. So when we recently moved into our new shared space with Salon Sa Bel, we hired a feng-shui specialist. As a result, every aspect of our spa — from our inviting reception area to soothing color schemes to judiciously placed mirrors and gemstones — is both calming and energizing.
We also provide all of the practical amenities you need to ensure a relaxing visit, including robes, lockers for your valuables, and a shower should you wish to take one after your treatment. Coffee, tea and purified water are available, as are ginger candies.
And don't forget to ask about our free "chi" treatment, which is available to current clients. It's one more way we can help you feel refreshed and renewed.
Owner & Aesthetician
Barbara Jones had personal reasons for becoming an aesthetician. As a young adult, she developed acne and started seeing a facialist, who saved her skin.
Barbara's training encompasses the traditional, the holistic, and the practical. She studied herbology and natural medicine with a Cherokee Medicine Man, and was schooled in classical European skin care by Sylvie Hennessy, the French dermatologist who went on to create the Pevonia skin care line. Barbara also became a certified colon hydrotherapist after seeing firsthand the remarkable changes that internal detoxification made in her own skin.
After becoming an aesthetician, Barbara did facials and other treatments at salons throughout the Twin Cities, including Edinburgh USA, the Calhoun Beach Club, and the Thomas Charles Salon. In 2006, seeking to combine the treatment modalities that helped her, Barbara opened Aurora Spa. She expanded the business in 2008.
While there is virtually no facial skin care treatment Barbara doesn't excel in, she is renowned for several — her classic European facials, acne treatments, and shaping and styling eyebrows.
Detoxification Specialist & Aesthetician
Rohanna Jones specializes in treatments that detoxify the body inside and out.
She graduated in aesthetiology from the International Dermal Institute, is a certified colon hydrotherapist, and studied with the late Frank Berg, whose cellulite reduction treatment was so exceptional that he was known as the "butt man" among Hollywood celebrities. Berg taught Rohanna how to get rid of the lumps and bumps of cellulite naturally.
Cellulite reduction now represents the majority of Rohanna's work, but she also specializes in other areas, including detoxifying the lymphatic system, colon hydrotherapy, acne facials, and massage therapy that is customized to the needs of the individual. In addition, Rohanna does lash tinting, perms and extensions as well as make-up consultations and applications.
