Rhonda Nordstrom   Owner & Aesthetician

Rhonda Nordstrom received her aesthetic license in 2000 and went on to practice in spas in the Boston area. Rhonda returned to her native Rockland, Maine and opened Nordström Skin Care in December of 2002. In March of 2009, with the name change to RHEAL Day Spa, the business relocated to its current home—a lovely, urban chic spa built with sustainable, reused, and recycled materials. With that move, RHEAL added massage therapy, yoga, and natural nail care to its service menu.

Healthy is Beautiful® is the tagline that pretty much sums up Rhonda’s philosophy of authenticity. That means taking the very best care of ourselves through healthy lifestyle choices, i.e. eating food from responsible sources, exercising, and using beautiful skin care products like her own RHEAL Skin Care or Dr. Hauschka Skin Care lines. RHEAL’s boutique also carries wonderful hair care and makeup products.




Jenn Wilgus    Spa Coordinator

Education:  Associates in Paralegal Studies

I made the career change to the health and wellness field about three year ago because I am passionate in helping women and teens see and feel how naturally beautiful they truly are, while enhancing that with the fun of makeup. I am happy to help client's find the perfect product or service that will benefit them most.

I love working at RHEAL, providing a clean and calming oasis for everyone to enjoy. I love all the details of being RHEAL's spa coordinator.

When asked why I love what I do, I feel an overwhelming rush of emotions. I realize that what I do is give the gift of relaxation, peace of mind and soul, and help the power of inner beauty come to the forefront in an age where so much emphasis is given to what's on the outside.  It's and incredible gift, and I'm honored to share it.

I like working at RHEAL because we're a family.  When one of us succeeds we all celebrate.  When one of us needs a hand, we all contribute.  We're also a very active part of our community and that makes me proud.  We're much more than a spa.  We're a living, breathing, growing organism, and our mission is to improve the quality of life for everyone, not just those we touch.

I love what I do because the body is a beautiful thing and massage is like a dance that celebrates that being. I feel I can make a difference through compassionate and therapeutic touch.

I like working at RHEAL because of the holistic approach to health and beauty. The calm environment is the perfect fit for me to work and learn.

I love assisting clients in their quest for well being through massage and education on how to facilitate healing as the body ages and/or recovers from injury.

At RHEAL we focus on the whole person, taking the holistic approach in a relaxed and welcoming environment.  I'm proud to work in an environment that ensures one-on-one attention with every client.
