25th Birthday Finale! A big thank you…

Thank you to everyone who has made Stephanies Luxury Spas 25th Birthday Celebrations Special!

After a beautiful week of events to close off three months of 25th Anniversary celebrations at Stephanie’s, here is a moment to reflect and ask; what makes Stephanies a spa brand that has excelled and reached such heights?

Stephanie Shepherd receives six luxury spa awards 2017

In the beginning, Stephanies was built from the ground up on passion, service and vision. Stephanie herself is known by her clients and close circle as a rare and beautiful soul, which is exceedingly refreshing in this industry.

Down to earth, with a humble attitude despite her many successes, Stephanie has created five incredible sanctuary spaces across the greater Brisbane area.

Possessing a genuine love of all things spa and beauty, it’s easy to see how her energy has flowed down throughout the entire organisation.

Her core values of warmth and integrity have been built on a foundation of exceptional service and are a wonderful example of the Feminine Business principle fully at work.

Creating a highly successful business model within extremely beautiful and nurturing environments, and around a predominately female team and clientele, has seen Stephanies continue to blossom and evolve over the decades.

While many companies have shifted their focus to meet the expectations of virtual landscapes, Stephanies has embraced technology only as a means to further meet the needs of her clients and raise the level of service that Stephanies has always personified.

A benchmark of luxury and a welcoming atmosphere are just the beginning at Stephanies. Stephanies aims to treat clients with a high and consistent level of care – akin to what is extended to closest family and friends.

Embracing the new and navigating the business intuitively have allowed Stephanies Luxury Spas to remain a leader in the worldwide Luxury Day Spa industry.

Remaining deeply grounded and always paying homage to our past and traditional values- this is what makes Stephanies not only stand the test of time but transcend it.

Our journey so far…

In 1994, Stephanie Shepherd opened her first beauty concept location at Camp Hill, an inner east suburb of Brisbane, called Stephanie’s Natural Beauty. Comprising only two therapy rooms… this is where it all began.

 “How beautiful to see clients who have been regulars since this time helping us celebrate 25 Years this week!”  Quotes, Stephanie Shepherd.

1997 saw a move to the beautiful Oxford Street in Bulimba, Number 200, as Stephanies first Bulimba shopfront came to life.

Opening as Stephanies Natural Beauty & Day Spa; this space was the beginning of a 22 year-long journey in the beautiful, leafy 4171 postcode.

Five years later, in 2002, with Oxford Street developing and with the business expanding, it was time to move down the road and across the street, to the lovely two-level building at 77 Oxford Street.

In 2007, Stephanies spread its wings once again when the opportunity to expand into a second spa arose… welcoming her first five-star hotel spa on Level Three of Sofitel Brisbane Central.

Encompassing the utterly iconic and unforgettable Opal Rasul Steam Temple, Stephanies Spa Retreat was born!

At the same time, Stephanies original Day Spa in Bulimba, the heart of her businesses to this day, was given a little name makeover. Renamed Stephanies Urban Spa – this spa is an institution among locals in the inner eastern suburb of Bulimba.

2010 saw further expansion with a third spa opening its doors! As Stephanies Luxury Spas had become completely synonymous with quality and service, Stephanies Ocean Spa was welcomed by Noosa residents and holidaymakers alike.


Situated on Level Two of the Sunrise Building at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas (formerly the Outrigger Resort) this beautiful location offers the ultimate ocean spa-cation.

Not content to stop there, barely a year later, Stephanies opened a fourth Spa in the growing Brisbane spa empire; with Stephanies Mountain Spa taking bookings from April of 2011.

Based at Clear Mountain Lodge, just half an hour north of the Brisbane CBD, this spa combines the very best of nature and relaxation. Offering stunning sweeping views of Brisbane, Moreton Bay and the D’Aguilar Range, yet another spa destination had come to life.


After acquiring an existing spa in a historic Queenslanders at Cleveland, in Brisbane’s bayside, 2012 welcomed the quaintly beautiful luxe of Stephanies Vintage Spa– completing the journey, so far… of Stephanies Spa locations.

2014 marked two decades of all things Stephanies, twenty years already!

June 2015 brought a massive step in the story which tied the brand together beautifully – the creation of a Head Quarters for Stephanies Luxury Spas. Stephanie felt that “with five luxury locations across South East Queensland, we needed to expand our internal spa infrastructure.”

Established within the Metroplex on Gateway, Murarrie, the building contains state of the art training facilities, a dedicated and highly professional Reservations Team, conference suites, break out areas, offices, warehouse and laundry spaces.

With so many achievements and constant expansion, this year, in 2019, Stephanies celebrated 25 years going strong and couldn’t be more excited about this beautiful milestone!

“What sets us apart is not just what we do differently – for instance our unique style of beauty and spa rituals – but what we do the same, such as an unwavering commitment and complete dedication to an exceptional level of service and client care.

Our beautiful teams are selected on the basis of excellence as therapists, as well as a deep dedication to providing absolute warmth and exceptional client interaction.

Most of all, what sets Stephanies apart in this day and age is one huge factor – we are a company that is completely heart-centred, basing everything we do on a conscious decision of loving ethical interaction.

This ethos overflows into our treatments, our people, our products, our décor and the way that we do everything at Stephanies.

When we invite others into a Stephanies Spa, our greatest satisfaction arises from knowing that they too experience this.” Stephanie Shepherd, CEO and Founder.

Stephanie is truly honoured by her guests continued loyalty and support and looks forward to nourishing your body, heart and soul with her beautiful spa rituals for many more decades to come.

Get your best look with Stephanies 360 degrees approach to skin rejuvenation and home skincare solutions

Get your best look with Stephanies 360 degrees approach to skin rejuvenation and home skincare solutions – introducing our new Medi Spa Menu and Medi Spa Memberships

Maintaining a natural and youthful look is highly desirable

We all wish to look and feel our best, no matter what age. Now that booking into a Medi Spa for non-surgical anti-ageing treatments has advanced to a level attainable for us all and not just ‘celebs’ and ‘movie stars’, what can we expect at a Medi Spa appointment with Stephanies?

Before we go any further it’s correct to outline that our Stephanies Medi Spa aesthetic is to provide clients with a natural look that makes them feel confident and look great for their age. How then is that natural look achieved?

Firstly to understand how Medi Spa treatments work it is important to realise the natural ageing process

As we age our face loses elasticity, the definition of features and volume;  resulting in crows feet, frown lines and other folds and furrows that detract from our once ‘sunshiney’ fresh look. The natural voluminous fat stores in our face during our youth begin to shrink and move south. Visible signs in skin texture, tone and pigmentation become noticeable. The effects of gravity, repeated muscle movement, complexion changes and the diminishment of definition and fullness, all contribute to the natural ageing process.

Jumping forward now to a Medi Spa consult; your skin concerns will be discussed personally and a total face analysis outlined as to what Medi Spa technologies, treatments and products will work best for you

These treatments start from classic facial therapy’s then move to device based beauty technologies including, LED light therapies, microdermabrasion, and the innovative iBeauty device. Advanced skin treatments include peels and medi facials right through to our Medical Doctor performing dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, double chin reduction therapy and platelet-rich plasma treatments.

Stephanies traditional skin therapy’s promote skin stimulation, exfoliation and hydration with relaxing facial and scalp massage sequences. The more intense Medi Spa skin treatments target specific skin concerns and require a thorough skin analysis from our qualified skin clinicians. Jump into our new Medi Spa membership to take advantage of technologies such as our LED LightStim and iBeauty device solutions that combine advanced ingredients with innovative non-aggressive facials to purify and hydrate to prevent aging. Once we have customised your Medi Spa professional skin and home skincare solutions we have our in-house Medical Doctor available to you, if you choose, for your complimentary consult to enhance your natural features.

Here we explain anti-wrinkle injections and fillers for facial aesthetics

Dermal fillers can restore some of the lost volume and recreate your facial contours; along with correcting wrinkles around eyes, cheeks, forehead, jaw, lips and mouth areas. Whereas anti-wrinkle injections ease wrinkles and lines in the upper face and help reduce crow’s feet, glabellar and forehead lines. Dermal fillers are not the same as anti-wrinkle injections. They provide volume and contouring and are used to fill wrinkles and lines and generally last 9 to 24 months. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles with results usually lasting 3 to 4 months.

A natural looking result is therefore achieved with Stephanies 360 degree approach! This full-circle consultation and treatment combination of Medi Spa treatments, home skincare solutions and the opportunity to be introduced to our Medical Doctor, with his expertise in naturally enhancing your features, will give you a holistic approach to skin rejuvenation.

Call now for a 360 degree consult and take the next steps to a more ‘refreshed you’.  Don’t miss out on your free 20 minutes consultation with our qualified skin clinicians to get you started.
