Mother-daughter duo Becky, 22, and Debbie Dubickas, combined their skills to open SoHo Wellness, serving the body, mind and soul.

Originally from Scotland, the Dubickases moved to Tampa six years ago.

"My mom and I are in this together," Becky said. "I went to school for skin and nails and my mom does hypnotherapy. She used to work in an office on Kennedy Boulevard."

After what felt like forever in a search for the perfect space, Debbie happened onto the location at 103 South Blvd. while driving to a conference at the Tampa Museum of Art.

The pair preserved the old charm of the two-story yellow building, located near the University of Tampa, decorated with porches and wooden floors and complete with 16 rooms.

The first floor is centered around manicures and pedicures, and a spiral staircase leads guests upstairs for meditative and therapeutic services.

A store, off to the left of the main room, sells oils, sprays, candles, salt lamps and incense.

"We offer infrared sauna, reiki and spiritual readings, manicures and pedicures, massages, facials and more. People will come in for a pedicure and see there's so many other services," Becky said. "We also have a spa package that includes lunch from Ciccio's."

Though they have been open for almost a year now, they are ready to host an official grand opening from 4-9 p.m. on Oct. 28.

"We've come together with the therapists here and we will have guest speakers for the mind and body. There will be an energy healer, some raffles, prizes, wine, cheese and meats. A couple of other businesses will also join us with booths on the porch," Becky said.

In addition to the grand opening party, all new clients will receive 10 percent off a new service through Dec. 1.
