Mona Kirylo

Over the last 35 years as a multi licensed technician, I have had the quintessential experience working in the Beauty Salon and Spa Industry.  Advancement in technology has enhanced my knowledge and abilities to provide Beauty and Wellness treatments to the endless number of people around the Globe. It has come to my knowledge that hands on contacts brings a comforting trust to the client and a gratification to the Therapist.

In my career there have been many opportunities that have enriched my life.  Along with continued education, I have had the privilege to volunteer as a Greet The Day Touch Therapist in Orange County Hospital Oncology Infusion Centers.  This training has allowed me to comfort those afflicted from cancer through Facials and Massage.

My journey in this career is to follow my heart and where it leads me.  My challenge is to succeed and continue to touch the hearts of many that want to experience the Spa Retreat at Talega Day Spa. What better way to provide Spa services than to be near the ocean where I am most comfortable and connected with life and nature.

Tracy's Tip:
Most people's steering wheels are too high. Lower it a couple of inches to about chest high. This will put less strain on your neck and shoulder blades.








Mary Rushing

I was born to be a Massage Therapist.  I love being able to teach my clients body awareness and help them reach a state of pain free fucntion and Range of Motion.  A Mary Massage is customized to meet your specific needs and expectations.  I graduated from Western Institute of Neromuscular Therapy in 2006 with 1000 hours and have been practicing Massage ever since.  My sessions integrate several modalities including trigger point, myofacial release, active release, sports, and deep tissue.  The use of moiset heat during my massages is standard for me.  Over use and post injury treatment are my forte. If you are looking for a therapist to finally get to the root and cause of your aches and pains. . . I am your girl.  I am loving working at Talega Day Spa and look forward to treating many more of your! Cheers!
