Inside Justice Coker Estate Off CIPM Avenue, Alausa, Ikeja Lagos is hidden an exclusive health and fitness spa. Simply called Biyou Spa, (pronounced Be You), in the Japanese language it means beautiful while in English it means to be oneself.
Biyou Spa is an exclusive Women Only Health and Beauty spa. It offers a holistic, natural and alternative approach to weight loss, nutrition and skin care. “We are focused on positive re-connection to clients’ inner and outer beauty, says Joyce Busari, Biyou Spa CEO. Our Spa uses only the finest in naturally sourced, plant-derived products. Being oneself is a beautiful thing, hence our motto ‘Love you, accept you, be you.'”
In addition, Biyou Spa offers body contouring, various fat reducing therapies, and weight loss, nutritional counselling, healthy meals, facials, body scrubs, waxing, massage, among others.
Busari says she sources for the ingredients she uses locally. “We try as much as possible to source locally but in the event that quality is not guaranteed we then have no option than to source abroad from organic producers,” she explains.
Biyou Spa has been in existence for five years, however, Busari’s professional career spans over a decade in the health and beauty industry. With Biyou Spa, she targets young, elderly, single or married women who love to live the good life and love to pamper their bodies. Biyou Spa offers quality services with kindness and compassion.
Busari is an internationally trained aesthetician and holistic nutritionist who graduated from the renowned Champneys College in the Tring United Kingdom, one of Europe’s elite spas.
As a wife, mother of four, and a dedicated professional, she is aware of the importance of continuing education, and have furthered her studies in anti-aging skincare practices and technologies, as well as holistic modalities such as aromatherapy
Her passion for total health, beauty and well-being led her to an intensive study of nutrition. The knowledge she acquired has given her the ability to remedy the skin from inside out and assist individuals in reaching their health and weight loss goals.
“Standing behind Biyou’s philosophy and the products and services it promotes are extremely important to me. As a result, I am diligent with my research and testing which can take weeks to months to satisfy my high standards, before a potential new product or service can be offered,” she says.
Busari says the spa was born out of the need to be a vehicle of consciousness in Nigeria by creating a holistically sustainable business modality, which inspires, promotes and supports natural skin care, true health, and wellness.
Expansion has been quite challenging for Busari due to how to balance work and family life. “It’s important that business is close to home and the children school, so I can be there for my husband and the children,” she explains.
The next big thing for Biyou Spa is “Health Bistro” by Biyou, a restaurant that will serve healthy versions of all the brand’s favourite local and international freshly prepared dishes with pure drinks.
