George and Mitzi Bunton

Spa Directors

For 13 years, Mitzi and George Bunton have provided club members and guests at The Eseeola Lodge a higher level of relaxation through their massage therapy and body treatments. “We’ve had some of the same clients since 2002 coming in on a weekly basis, so it feels like family—I love that,” says Mitzi. Prior to running the spa, both Buntons received degrees in physical therapy and have practiced for 20 years. “I was inspired to study massage,” Mitzi says. “ and have since taken a more holistic approach to therapy.” During her transition from physical therapy to the spa industry, Mitzi worked with the Ritz Carlton Spa in Naples, Florida. George’s therapy focus centered on orthopedics, including joint replacements and sport injuries. Adopting a whole body approach, the Buntons lead a team of highly skilled professionals. “We encourage our staff to focus on integrating therapies as they develop custom treatments for each client,” says Mitzi.
