All-inclusive spa aims to bring relaxation to Eastern Kentucky

ALLEN, Ky. (WYMT) - A new spa in Floyd County opened it's doors Wednesday evening.

It's called PurLux and it is located in Allen.

Those who work at the spa say they aim to please everyone, including those with disabilities.

From their Himalayan Salt Room to their pedicure chairs, the entire spa is designed to be ADA compliant.

Tonya Johnson and Tiffany Johnson own the spa.

Tonya says everyone should be able to experience total relaxation.

"For me to think about someone who wanted to have a party here or a guest that wanted to experience our services and would have the inability to do it, that just wasn't acceptable," explained Tonya.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires businesses to make “reasonable accommodations” for people with qualified disabilities.

"We actually put an elevator in to make sure everyone had access to all of our amenities in the total spa," Tonya pointed out. "All of our tables are hydraulic so they raise and lower to assist someone that may be in a wheelchair, have difficulty in tight spots, or on a walker," she continued.

There is also a pedicure bowl that will push up to a wheelchair. The shampoo bowls are hydraulic and adjustable for anyone in a wheelchair as well.

"We have 7,000 square feet of luxury. We have steam rooms, saunas, a Himalayan Salt Cave. We offer massage therapy, facials, skin care, hair, nails, and we also have a couples suite," explained Tiffany.

The Himalayan Salt Cave is 1 of 5 in the state of Kentucky.

PurLux is derived from two words that Tonya and Tiffany say encompass their mission. That's pure luxury.

"Everyone needs it. Everyone needs to take care of his or her body, total body wellness. That's exactly what we're focused on," Tonya pointed out.

The spa hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday to invite the community into their business to show everyone what it is all about.

"The people don't have to drive 2 to 3 hours to find relaxation, wellness, and rejuvenation," said Tiffany. "We have all of the same services they can find in places like Lexington and more. We have it all under one roof here at PurLux," she added.
