Director keeps The Spa at Red Rock a place of peace
Megan Linney wants to make the world a better place. First, she did it by helping one person at a time, and now she does it by helping many people at a time. Linney is well-versed in body healing—years ago she studied and was certified as both a massage therapist and aesthetician and spent a big portion of her career in both roles running her own company as well as developing and operating other spas. Today, her role is spa director at The Spa at Red Rock by Well & Being.
“I love the hands-on aspect,” said Linney when comparing her past role with her current one. “But I’m way more impactful being in my role now. Being able to troubleshoot and ground people and get the best out of them, I can do that for 90 people in an hour. I can only do that for one person an hour when I’m doing services.”
Linney leads and nurtures her 90-person team at the spa that includes managers, therapists, fitness instructors and spa attendants; and she prides herself on the fact that her and her staff come from a place of authenticity and have created a sense of community. “And the guests can feel that,” she said.
In fact, Linney’s favorite part of the job is the relationship between the staff and guests. “When guests get to gush about my staff and my staff gets to gush about the guests they work on, you just know you’re in the right place. You’re helping people feel better and creating a little more peace in the world.”
Inside the spa’s retail section you’ll find the Lalicious body care line. With products that include sugar scrubs, hand creams, body butters and signature oils, Linney highly recommends both the healing and beauty benefits of the brand. For example, when using the sugar scrub, “after you exfoliate in the bath or shower it leaves a beautiful emollience on your skin,” she said. “So for someone who is on the go and doesn’t take too much time for self-care, you kinda get that 2-for-1—you get the beautiful exfoliation with the sugar scrub and with the coconut oil it leaves your skin super-soft and silky.”
