Elemental Well-Being

almond oil / peach kernel / himalayan salt / dry brush

wood: rejuvenating and immuno-boosting
fire: stimulates and invigorates the mind
earth: balances body and mind, aids sleeplessness
metal: detoxifies and tonifies
water: soothes and relieves stress

Firmly rooted in the Five Element theory of traditional Chinese & Japanese medicine, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water are used to help diagnose conflicting symptoms within your body & mind.

Using only the highest grade, first extraction plant oils, we draw upon Eastern and Western massage techniques and tailor them to your specific needs. These natural oil infusions are a modern-day interpretation of the ancient theory, and when intentionally applied through body work, a powerful and holistic approach to restoring individual balance is achieved.

Your quest for equilibrium begins with a plunge in a private, mineral-infused soak in our traditional Japanese ofuro tub. Next, a dry body brushing encourages skin cell regeneration and stimulates lymphatic flow prior to a fully customized 60-minute massage with your choice of element-inspired oil.
