A unique health and wellness center will open Sept. 1 in Purcellville, located in the space previously occupied by Butterfly Gourmet, at 221 E. Main St.
Butterfly Gourmet will be closing its doors Aug. 30.
“The Center” will focus on the “whole body,” including wellness, fitness, all-natural food, organic body care products and skin care and services such as facials, hair and makeup.
It is a partnership between Lisa Hall, owner of Vitalita Organics, Sonja Boggs, owner of The Center, featuring yoga and Reiki, and Marla Vargas, owner of LAJ Foods.
“I am so excited to open our business in Purcellville. I love the small town feel and friendliness of everyone,” said Hall.
Their idea is to provide everyday solutions for health, nutrition and beauty.
Hall’s Vitalita Organics Salon was previously located in Leesburg, before moving to Sterling in the past two years. Since then, she has been searching for the perfect location for this joint venture.
Her skin and body products, which are herbal-based, are “amazing” for helping people with acne, scarring and other skin issues, she said.
“If you’re working on the inside of your body, you also need to detox on the outside,” Hall said.
Her holistic approach to skin care and hair care treatments “will change your life,” she says.
She has a skin care line, Sunshine Botanicals, and a farm-to-skin body care line. Hall’s hair color products are made with yogurt and are all-natural as well.
For the nutrition component, Vargas’ concept focuses on creating food which is “clean,” locally-sourced and plant-based.
Recently, she has been selling her healthy creations at the One Loudoun and Herndon Farmers’ Markets.
Vargas will be featuring rotating daily specials for breakfast and lunch to-go, soups, smoothies, desserts and wraps.
The Center will offer yoga and movement classes, Reiki and health coaching.
Boggs works with clients to create healing energy for mind, body and spirit. This can help people with chronic illness, pain, stress, weight loss and insomnia.
Boggs said she enjoys working with clients of all ages and loves helping people feel better about themselves.
The Center will feature a “transformation package” providing yoga, Reiki and meditation, combining this with learning how to make healthy meals, as well as facials, makeup and more.
“The idea is to focus on mind, body, spirit and soul,” Hall said.
Hall said she believes The Center is a great fit for Purcellville because of its location near the vast array of organic farms and restaurants in western Loudoun.
“The services, food and products we will offer are unique, and all three of us are results-driven in our businesses. We look forward to meeting everyone and getting involved in the community,” Hall said.
