Guests head to Everett House Healing Center to indulge in spa services that take a holistic approach to relieving pain and stress. Visitors can indulge in relaxation and channel their inner life preservers in a 7’x4’ Samadhi floatation tank filled with 10 inches of water and 800 pounds of epsom salt. Sessions in the tank are said to detoxify muscles while lowering the heart rates of buoyant bodies. Clients can then make their way to the steam-and-sauna room for a session that, like an argument between yogis over meditation techniques, results in an hour of heated relaxation. Bask in the dry heat of a large cedar sauna, or choose a smaller four-person sauna for a more private vibe. To further alleviate anatomies from daily stresses, practiced muscle mashers massage tendons for 30 minutes in a variety of massage styles, including Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal.
The spread of services can be redeemed over multiple visits, but reservations are required and the spa recommends that clients come 15–20 minutes before their appointment.
Everett House Healing Center
Though Everett House Healing Center has changed since its inception in 1979, the center's devotion to traditional preventive healing has not. On the grounds of the multibuilding facility, holistic practitioners work alongside resident chiropractors to deliver such stress-relieving spa services as Swedish massages and organic facials. They can also shelter guests inside a Samadhi flotation tank filled with 10 inches of water and 800 pounds of epsom salt, a treatment that is said to detoxify muscles and alleviate tension while lowering the heart rates of hummingbirds who have had too much cappuccino.
Elsewhere in the facility, a cedar sauna wafts dry heat over bodies to expunge impurities from skin, and a tiled steam room's therapeutic vapors clear the respiratory system. Guest can also relax in the new salt water hot tub. The center maintains a coed, clothing-optional environment aside from limited women-only hours.
