Support Staff

Jeff Hengst, BFA, MA  Owner

Jeff opened the Little Red Day Spa in 2007. He has always been interested in how the arts and healing practices such as massage work together to create a higher quality of life. His art is part of a long tradition stretching back to the ancient Greeks which focuses on the beauty and power of the human body as well as the body being the vessel and vehicle of the soul. Jeff is not an LMP and is not available for massage. He has a BFA from Penn State and an MA from Seattle University.
