  5. What is Eudaimonia? The story behind our Penrith day spa

Discover the history of Eudaimonia and find out why our beautiful premises are fast becoming one of Penrith’s most popular day spas.

Welcome to Eudaimonia Beauty! We are one of Penrith’s newest (and oldest) day spas.


How does that work?


Our Penrith day spa is now owned by Cathy Pitsis but it has been in the family for a long time. Over 30 years ago, Cathy’s mother-in-law Carolyn Pitsis opened a beauty salon in the same location Eudaimonia is in today. Since that time, it has had a few different owners but it has now come full circle to be back in the family. 


In late 2018, Cathy reopened the salon in its original location, with a fresh new look and brand. To build a facility clients will love coming to, she focused on three key areas.

A beautiful Penrith day spa experience

When fitting out Eudaimonia, Cathy and her team did so with relaxation in mind. The plan was to offer an oasis where clients could escape the daily grind. 


Expertly planned by Jo from Black Pebble Design, the interiors of our heavenly day spa are like nowhere else in Penrith. Cathy and Jo viewed a range of other salons around Sydney for inspiration before creating a relaxing space that’s so much more than a basic beauty salon.


When you walk in, you’ll immediately notice the calming environment as you are surrounded by beauty, aromatherapy scents and inviting Himalayan salt lamps. Our waiting room is so appealing, many clients arrive fifteen minutes early for their appointment so they can unwind with a soothing herbal tea. 

An amazing team

Along with having a beautiful day spa, Cathy looked to bring together the ideal team of therapists. Her search for a manager led her to Amanda Murdoch, an award-winning beauty industry expert. Having managed an Endota Spa, Amanda completely understood the importance of both a welcoming environment and premium beauty treatments. She specialises in a range of therapies which help both women and men to look and feel their best. 


Rounding out the team are Grace and Brooke, who are both absolute superstars. With a focus on exquisite eyebrows, Grace loves helping clients achieve their ideal look. 


Brooke comes to us remarkably qualified in event and special effects makeup. With film-set experience, she is able to create stunning makeup looks for our Penrith clients, be they preparing for a school formal, getting married or attending a fancy dress party. 


Having qualified and experienced therapists means we know every customer is in good hands at Eudaimonia Beauty. 

An extra something special

The Greek word ‘Eudaimonia’ means having a contented state of inner and outer wellbeing. 


Cathy and the team understand that real beauty comes from inside and out. This is why our Penrith day spa was created to help our clients feel a sense of belonging and total relaxation. 


While some beauty salons focus on treating as many clients as possible, it is our goal to give you the attention you need so you feel as good on the inside as you do on the outside. After a massage, facial or other treatment, we hope you will also feel mentally restored so you can face the rest of your day with energy and confidence. 

What to expect at Eudaimonia

Our salon is suitable for men, women and teens for a range of purposes. Book an appointment for a relaxing facial or indulgent massage. You can bring a group for event makeup, or get a spray tan or eyelash tint before an important occasion.
