When Theresa Armour founded Burke Williams Day Spa in 1984, she was on the vanguard of an industry that would go on to flourish. “We simply brought the healing art of professional massage to the urban environment and made it accessible,” she says. With locations across California, Burke Williams Day Spa has been the longtime go-to for busy city dwellers seeking relaxation and pampering with services ranging from massage to facials, hydrotherapy, and more.
Armour has assembled a powerhouse team dedicated to making the Burke Williams experience exceptional, including Chief Marketing Officer Dana Buchman, Chief Treatments Officer Diane Hibbard, Chief Experience Officer Diane Kim, and General Counsel Angira Patel.
As industry leaders, Burke Williams is constantly innovating. They’ve recently introduced a menu where guests choose an intention—whether it’s to rest, awaken or heal—and a guest experience agent helps customize their spa journey with everything from massage and skin care to spa and water treatments. They’ve also recently launched the Vitality massage with a unique B-12 vitamin formula to enhance the immune system and energize the senses—perfect for the intent to awaken. A groundbreaking new treatment coming later this year will transport guests into a dreamlike, restful state with new and innovative healing techniques.
Armour is gratified by her ability to transform people’s lives with a dedication to serving and a passion for well-being. “Guests arrive feeling the pressure and stress of everyday life,” she says. “Our mission is to provide a healing sanctuary that impacts their physical, emotional, and, perhaps, even spiritual health.”
