My name is: Daisy Tepper.
I'm known for being: spa director at the Spa at The Post Oak Hotel in Uptown Houston.
I’m talking about: Our new spa, which is the first and only one in Texas to be awarded a Forbes Five-Star rating, thanks to our carefully-selected, talented team, weeks of training, endless dedication and genuine care for our guests. We are one out of only 31 spas in the US and 62 in the world to receive this designation—and it was after being open for only three months!
This is special because: The menu I created is inspired by Houston’s diversity and is influenced by many cultures. Our services integrate techniques that are customary in different regions throughout the world. And our “Ritual of Five Worlds” was created exclusively for our spa. A portion of proceeds when this is booked goes to charity. (Currently, we’re donating to The Heart Foundation.) Our attention to detail—and our staff—is above and beyond.
When it comes to well-being, we’re all about: Well-being is a part of everything we do: the amenities that we offer in the locker rooms, the natural products used in treatments, the Techno gym wellness rack in each guest room, private yoga classes. We offer a USB charging station for your phone in each locker, a tea program from different regions that complements our treatments, lavender lemonade upon arrival and lavender sorbet at the end of the service. Fresh pressed juice, protein spheres and collagen muffins are made fresh daily by our pastry chef. And all of our treatment rooms have bluetooth, so guests can play their own music—we tried to consider every detail!
One thing you can’t miss is: Our quiet lounge, where our guests can recline in zero gravity chairs and meditate.
My favorite secret detail is: Customizing the experience for our regular guests. We give them their own monogrammed robes and personalize their experiences based on what they like—favorite drinks, favorite music, favorite snacks, favorite lotion or oil, any special set up they prefer in the treatment room. They’re treated like royalty.
Your body will thank you because: Our natural products (from Aromatherapy Associates) and rituals will make a real difference in the quality of your skin, how your body feels and your overall mental well-being.
While you’re in the neighborhood, you must try: Willie G’s because it has been a staple in Houston for more than 35 years.
Escaping should be part of your process because: Improving the quality of life by nourishing the mind, body and soul is essential in order to transform, heal and renew.
