Our wellness lounge offers clients time to relax before or after spa services or mindful movement classes. A wonderful place to share a cup of our signature tea with friends. Within the spa, a serene quiet lounge is available for use for those who prefer to relax in solitude.
Our mindful movement classes are centered around self-care and are offered in a supportive group environment. Traditional yoga, barre, cardio and mediation sessions are available 7 days a week.
Although we do accept walk-in clients when possible, our clients are generally seen by appointment only. Please keep in mind that weekends and evenings often fill our schedule early.

All guests who are receiving a massage, facial or body treatment will have the opportunity to enjoy a robe before and after their service. If you prefer, you may undress in the treatment room prior to beginning your service.
