BURLINGTON – Musically named “3 Little Birds” massage therapy spa recently received approval for a special permit application to set up on Bedford Street Plaza.
The location is across from MITER Field and is in the same plaza as Burlington Famous Pizza.
The design consists of two massage rooms in the 865 square foot space. The only work that will take place involves a new coat of paint and modern furniture to help liven up the experience.
Jessica Pattelena will be the only massage therapist on the staff. She resided in Burlington and was “happy” to return to work in the city.
Pattelena’s dream has always been to start this business. At the age of 10, her father passed away. He was a fan of reggae musician Bob Marley and his hit song “3 Little Birds” which Pattelena and her father last performed before his death.
“Since then, Jessica has dedicated her life to helping others live their best lives, reducing stress,” Kelsey Bevis, business owner, told the Planning Board. “She graduated from the Salter School of Massage and has worked for various beauty salons and spas.”
The planners loved the concept and story of perseverance, so they had no problem unanimously approving the special permit application.
