TAMPA — At the opening celebration of The Glowing Tree Kids Spa in May, guests were welcomed into the enchanted forest-themed venue with garden and butterfly decor, magic mirrors and wall projections.

"It's a small version of a spa for kids," said Dennis Montalvo, human resources manager.

Spa and salon services include manicures, pedicures, facials, make-up, massage and hair decor. These services can be booked individually or as a day spa package.

The Glowing Tree Kids Spa also offers birthday parties and celebrations. Guests can choose from several party packages that include a variety of spa services, arts and crafts and fun activities. Catering is available or food can be brought in.

Continuing the enchanted theme, there is a princess style garden carriage used to hold cakes and treats, and staff are dressed in butterfly inspired costumes.

The Glowing Tree Kids Spa also holds camps and events such as Character Meet & Greet and Story Time Tea Party.

Owner Thaimi Deya wanted her new business to focus on wellness, so she uses organic and natural products to promote healthy habits at a young age. In addition, Kids Yoga and Mommy & Me Yoga classes are being offered.

The Glowing Tree Kids Spa is at 15353 Amberly Drive. It is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and by reservation. For more information, call (813) 442-4558 or visit
