Our Story

Hallo there! I am Vivian (Viv); the founder of Viv’s in-Houz Spa, a mobile spa in Nairobi and the outskirts.

I am a graduate of Vera beauty college and Kenya institute of management with diplomas in beauty therapy and business management.

I am very good at waxing, massage, and threading and clients know me to be highly punctual, hygienic, personable, and communicative.

The Conception

My freelance journey started when the spa I worked at suddenly closed in 2019 and my colleague Ann Kamau introduced me to LYNK; an online platform that put skilled workers from the informal economy in touch with individuals or businesses.

I joined as a freelance massage therapist and obtained a portable massage bed on “loan” from LYNK.

Before becoming a freelancer, I had perfected my skills in beauty therapy having worked for the Kenya defence health clubs (2014-2016) and Afrodise beauty salon (2017).

To grow further, I established Viv’s in-Houz spa with the help of my sister.

To begin my journey, my sister and I raised Ksh 40K to obtain the necessary materials including a portable wax heater, UV machine, essential oils, e.t.c

I continued working with LYNK for a while as Viv’s in-Houz spa blossomed and then intermittently until 2020 when its operations ceased.

The Team

I work together with other competent therapists to supplement some of the services that I can not offer i.e prenatal massage, manicure, and pedicure.

These “partnerships” give me a chance to let my fellow youth shine and grow by taking advantage of the platform that we have created.

Our mobile services reach most of Nairobi county and extend to selected neighborhoods like Ruaka, Ngong, Ongata Rongai, Mlolongo, Rongai, Kiambu, Juja, Syokimau, Kitengela, Athi-river, and Ruiru.

The mission

Wellness and self-care treatments are an integral part of our well-being and balance in life. Nonetheless, with the busy schedules, family commitments and the annoyance of traffic in Nairobi, one of the things taken off our agenda is time for ourselves.

I grew up in a village and a culture where a woman’s well-being was and still is in the last place. It is, however, a no-brainer and known that ‘a happy woman makes a happy home or work space’ and ‘you are most productive when relaxed’.

As such, your well-being as a woman is pivotal to the happiness and success of those around you and yourself.

My mission is to make wellness and selfcare services more accessible and convenient by delivering affordable services to the client’s home, hotel ensuite, or office.

While our focus is on ladies, we also offer selected services to their spouses (all services except waxing & body scrub), the corporate (only chair massage), parents, and children.
