Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find many of the frequently asked questions we receive here at Above and Beyond Day Spa. If you don't find the answers your looking for we would be happy to talk to you on the phone or communicate with you via email. Visit our Contact Page for more information.
Q.Do you offer "couple's massages"?
Above and Beyond Day Spa massages can be scheduled as “couple’s massages”, meaning that our rooms are set up with at least two tables so that each person can have a therapist.
We have two rooms with two massage tables, and one room with four massage tables for groups of friends or bridal parties.
Outcalls to bed and breakfasts and hotels can also be arranged with two therapists for couples or friends.
Q.Is the staff female or male?
We are an all-female staff of 11-12.
Q.What packages do you offer?
You can view our packages on our Services page. Beyond that, our pricing system is so reasonable that we feel we are allowing you to build your own packages just by adding several of our affordable services together, so in effect, you can build your own packages with exactly what you want and still come out with a great deal.
Considering you are also getting our highly trained staff, organic products, historical building and daily availability by appointment, you will probably become one of our many repeat customers.
Q.Do you take walk-ins?
We do our best to accommodate everyone, but prefer to work by prior appointment to allow time for scheduling staffing and for prepping for treatments if possible.
Q.Is there an extra charge for deep tissue massage or aromatherapy?
We ask you on the client information sheet you fill out upon arrival about massage pressure and essential oils, but do not charge extra for adding such services.
Q.What should I wear to get spa services?
It is best to wear clothing to the spa that can tolerate massage oil or cream after your session, or sandals if you are getting a pedicure and don’t want to leave in our disposable flip-flops. We can put a headband or turban around your hair upon request (and routinely do so for facial massage or spa treatments besides massage).
Our treatments usually do not disrupt contact lenses or most eye makeup, but wear your glasses and take off your makeup if you wish. Please be prepared to remove jewelry if it will come off and place with your belongings in the room with you.
We always practice modesty draping of clients according to Texas Department of Health regulations. Additionally, we allow you to keep your panties or underwear on except for wraps and scrubs. The therapists leave the room when you undress to get on the massage table and again to allow you to dress privately after the massage. If you are very modest, please select chair massage where you can stay fully dressed or our natural nail salon services.
Q.We're at the Admiral Nimitz Museum, but we don't see you. Where are you located?
We're at 418 West Austin Street, which is one street North of Main Street. The Nimitz is on East Main. So "go West, young man," to quote Horace Greely.
Q.Who are the people in the photographs on the spa walls and some of the other decorative items?
The photos are of owner Dawn Donalson's Texas Hill Country pioneer ancestors, such as Capt. Fergus Kyle of the famous Terry's Texas Rangers Fifth Cavalry and his daughter Mary Hartson, first woman mayor in the United States (both of Kyle, Texas, near San Marcos).
The log cabin painting in the front room is the home Capt. Kyle grew up in, now historically listed as the largest log house in the South. Capt. Kyle was also a state representative who signed a bill to save the Alamo by reconstruction and to begin a little college on the hill that is now Texas State University in San Marcos, his descendant Dawn Kyle Donalson's alma mater.
We also have commemorative plates from Fredericksburg's celebrations such as the 100th and 125th anniversaries of the founding and medals from the town's 150th celebration in 1994, an event Dawn worked on as head of the Comanche Liaison Committee.
