Meet Michelle

Being voted “Best Spa” year after year in the Best of Ascension People’s Choice Awards is no accident! Behind every blissful experience at St. Michel Day Spa is a lot of hard work and dedication.

Leading by example is accomplished spa owner and massage therapist Michelle Babin Tranchina. Her latest accolade by the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce is the 2020 Women’s Leadership Award; prior honors include Business Person of the Year and Individual Business Person of the Year.

Michelle graduated from the Leadership Livingston Inaugural Class in 2013; is a member of both Ascension and Livingston Chambers of Commerce; and a Louisiana Professional Member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

Her community work is known throughout the region. Michelle provided over 100 bags of food each week to two elementary schools as part of her group project with the Inaugural Leadership Livingston Class, “Mighty Moms Full Tummy Project.” Michelle kept the program going for years after graduation.

Other projects that benefit from her time and support include regional Health Day fairs, local churches, and the Ascension Parish St. Jude House.

Michelle is as hands-on a business owner as they come—she’s won “Best Massage Therapist” in the Best of Ascension People’s Choice Awards numerous times. Her commitment to delighting each guest, and exceeding their expectations every time, is the key to St. Michel Day Spa being one of the region’s most successful and enduring businesses since 2000.
