Founders George and Vanessa Jilly established the Uspa brand in Melbourne, Australia, which remains home to them and their three children. George's Hungarian upbringing and a study of botany lead him to an interest in the effects of plant chemistry for the skin, and importantly, the effect of essential oils on the entire being. Vanessa practised nursing before moving to the holistic approach of healing through massage and esthetics.
After a partnership with an organic skin care range in Australia followed by distribution of a top botanical line from the US, the Jilly's opened their own day spa in Melbourne. For eight years, the Balnae Spa came to appreciate global inspirations and a holistic approach of caring for the individual.
With this inspiration moving forward, the initial Uskincare range quickly garnered a following. The protocols are maintained on a global level today, including the signature Balinese Body Palming, guided breath, cloth wrap, and lymphatic stretch. Vanessa Jilly is now Vice President of an environmental group in Australia, and applies her passion to the Uspa range as we look to increase our earth friendly position. George continues to be inspired by those who grasp the philosophy of sharing the unique effects only the chemistry of plants
In July of 2009, Uspa opened our flagship location in Melbourne, Uspa Immersion. The two story remodeled Victorian space hosts our corporate office, training facility, spa, and retail showroom. We look forward to hosting distributors, educators, therapists, and clients who wish to share the Uspa experience.
