SPA FAQs

Do you perform extractions? 

We do not perform manual extractions in any of our spa treatments. Alternatively, we offer Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) in our facials to address congestion in the skin holistically without inflammation.

How should I dress for the spa?

We suggest arriving to the spa in attire that is comfortable. Foot Soak & Scrub clients should wear clothing that can be easily brought up to reveal the calf to avoid wet clothing and allow for massage. Massage and esthetic clients will have the option to disrobe for their treatments and are recommended to come in with minimal jewelry and makeup.

Can I apply makeup after my facial treatment?

Our last steps in our facials include an application of our Lavender Cold Cream followed by an SPF. Both products double as a makeup primer for an easy, non-caking application. We do however recommend a makeup free day so you are able to reap the benefits of your treatment and to reduce skin sensitivities.

How long until I can cleanse my face after a facial treatment?

You can cleanse your face, neck and chest at the end of the day to remove any environmental pollutants and SPF that was applied during your treatment. We recommend our Sweet Orange & Rosemary Cleansing Milk as it is pH balanced for gentle yet effective cleansing.

What is MLD and why is it beneficial during a facial treatment?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a type therapeutic touch therapy to move lymphatic fluid and help encourage the body's natural detoxification processes. This technique is beneficial for clients experiencing general breakouts to acne, blackheads, enlarged pores, inflammatory skin conditions and those concerned about reducing puffiness of the eye area. MLD treatments address congestion in the skin holistically without inflammation and take the place of manual extractions in our spa treatments. Facials that incorporate MLD are completed by a licensed esthetician trained in Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymphatic Drainage Technique. Contraindicated for clients with a history of heart conditions, blood disorders, kidney failure, tuberculosis and/or cancer.

Tell me more about your Lymphatic Body Massage?

Our Lymphatic Massage is performed with a dry brush followed by a 70-minute Swedish massage to create movement of the lymphatic system aiding in detoxification and stimulation of blood flow. Expect a reduction in inflammation and stress after lymphatic massage. Ideal for swelling, arthritis and poor circulation. Contraindicated for clients with a history of heart conditions, blood disorders, kidney failure, tuberculosis and/or cancer.

What is Reflexology?

It is a non-invasive massage therapy rooted in the idea that the body has reflex points that correspond to different organs and systems when stimulated. This technique is beneficial in balancing the central nervous system and can result in relaxation and improved circulation and energy levels. Reflexology is also known to help assist with pain reduction, digestive discomfort and migraines. Contraindicated for clients that are currently pregnant and/or have a history of blood disorders.

Can you tell me more about your spa accommodations? 

We are not a high volume spa and operate at a limited capacity to keep our therapists ready to meet your therapeutic and esthetic goals without compromise. Parties of 3 or more cannot be accommodated for simultaneous treatments at this time. Larger parties will need to be at staggered times, please call our shop to book.

Do you require treatment forms to be filled out in advance?

Yes. We digitally send our Liability + COVID Waiver along with your specific treatment intake form via text to be filled out in advance. Forms completed in advance allow our therapist to make necessary preparations to provide you with a relaxing experience start to finish. 

What are your age requirements for your natural spa?

We are an 18+ spa for facials, back treatments and massage. 

If this policy is not preferable and you are looking to have an at-home spa day we recommend the following routine for our clients ages 12-17:

Sweet Orange & Rosemary Cleansing Milk

Lavender & Primrose Moisturizer

Chamomile & Oats Clay Facial Mask or Red Clay Facial Mask for younger clients experiencing painful breakouts that may be correlated to hormonal changes.
