esSpa Organic Skincare + Salon Celebrates 20 Years in Business

By Charissa Lauren Collective, LLC January 13, 2022

For 20 years, esSpa has been known as the best Destination Day Spa in Pittsburgh and the 3rd Best Spa in America voted by numerous publications. The full service destination day spa murals European cities throughout making you truly feel like you’re at an exotic resort. As if the ambiance isn’t the most favored attraction, the spa is devoted to delivering only the best organic treatments and products. 

Owned and operated by husband & wife due, Eva and Scott Kerschbaumer, they are one of 12 Founding Members of the Green Spa Network and the only accredited GSN Spa in Pennsylvania. They were named "The 3rd Best Spa in America" by The Industry Source and have been voted "Best Spa" in Pittsburgh every year since 2005 by numerous publications and reader polls.

But rapid success wasn’t the story. As a Hungarian immigrant, Eva Kerschbaumer grew up in the Hungarian countryside until the fall of communism when she moved to Budapest. Her hometown was considered a secret as Eva's father was the Warden of a Soviet-era prison. At age 22, Eva took her background in cosmetology from Budapest and came to New York City with just $50 in her pocket. She taught herself to speak English by watching Gilligan's Island on repeat and worked towards the growth of the commonly known, esSpa Organic Skincare + Salon. It’s the classic American Dream story. 

Scott Kerschbaumer, the business brains of the spa, and Eva – an Expert Esthetician created a spa that has been loved by customers across the region and in 20 years has become a must-see location when visiting Pittsburgh. esSpa will celebrate 20 years in business on Wednesday 2.2.22 with skincare specials all day and a grand celebration with drinks, appetizers, prizes and more beginning at 6PM. RSVP today to see all that esSpa has to offer!
