milk + honey is the brainchild of Alissa Bayer, who moved to Austin to attend graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin. Not surprisingly, Alissa fell in love with Austin, and its wonderful culture and people, so she decided to stay. However, one thing Alissa didn’t find in Austin were the wonderful urban day spas that she frequented while living in New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.

After much soul-searching (and many massages), it became clear that Alissa wanted to combine her many years of professional experience, her creative, playful nature, and her desire to do something that makes others feel great. milk + honey is the result.

But she hasn’t done it alone. Alissa has surrounded herself with a talented, dynamic team of individuals, all Spa Partisans, who have helped to make milk + honey the best day spa in Texas. Contact Alissa by clicking here.
