From Our Editors
When asked what the name of their spa means, the owners of Cairde Wellness, Inc. point to their Irish ancestry and kindly reply that Cairde (pronounced cor-deh) is the Gaelic word for friends. It’s a fitting name, as the spa’s staff is known for greeting even strangers with a welcoming smile before leading them through an array of soothing services. While prone patrons drift into a rejuvenating slumber, therapists mend stresses and injuries with craniosacral, reflexology, deep-tissue, and Swedish techniques. They also unclog waxy ears with candling treatments and purge bodily toxins with ionic footbaths. Cairde opens the doors to its soothing oasis Tuesday–Friday from 10 a.m. to close, with Saturday appointments available by calling in advance or tattooing intentions on another client's back.
