CORE SERVICES: MASSAGES, FACIALS, BODYCARE, ENERGY WORK
At Thermae Retreat, our offerings go much deeper and higher than the average day spa. Each treatment can best be described as a rejuvenating therapy for the body, mind and soul. They all work in tandem with our signature Thermae Experience yet even when booked separately, every one of our unique and customizable services results in a sense of upliftment, self-nurturance and quietude that extends into your everyday life.
Yes, you will look and feel better but at the “core” of our services is their power to renew you from the inside out. And because we believe that everyone is worthy of the cathartic benefits of self-care and holistic wellness, our offerings are high end yet affordable.

Custom Massage is a bedrock of our core services because numerous studies reveal its countless health benefits. It’s not just a one-off indulgent treat. Received regularly, massage reduces stress levels, pain and muscle tension. It moves blood into stagnant tissue, releases trigger points and moves energy. Especially in today’s sedentary lifestyle, it goes a long way to counteract the negative effects of sitting for long periods at your desk or staring at your mobile devices for hours a day. Massage also soothes anxiety and depression, improves sleep and relieves headaches.
We begin your Custom Massage by asking what you need today, in this very moment. Your therapist then intuitively designs the treatment around your answer. It may be a combination of deep tissue, Swedish or relaxation, and may include hot stones, warm towels or essential oils. Amazingly, your massage will feel like a finely choreographed healing response to what your body most needs. It’s a massage like you’ve never had, even if you’ve had many over the years at ordinary day spas.
Our specialty massage options vary by location and include:
Couples Massages | Hot Stone Massages | Deep Tissue | Organic Essential Oil Massages | Pre-Natal Massages | Cupping | Lymphatic Drainage | Craniosacral Therapy | Reflexology | Reiki | Raindrop Therapy | Medical Massage | Massage with Sound Bath
Your skin is your largest organ and needs to be cleansed, exfoliated and hydrated. Looking your brightest is one result of our Custom Facials. Using only organic, vegan and wild-crafted products that are high frequency, our facials are more akin to a sacred ritual of loving self-care. Other benefits of our facials are deep cleansing and purification, pH balance, exfoliation, improved circulation, reduced signs of aging, stimulation of collagen production, detoxification and deep hydration.
As with our Custom Massages, your facial is personalized based on your needs and works on a cellular level to achieve the results you want naturally. The skin changes from season to season and day to day based on factors like what you eat, the climate, toxin exposure, and how much sleep and exercise you’re getting. Your esthetician may recommend one facial for you today, and a very different one at your later visit. Every time, you will leave from your appointment feeling radiant and ready to “face” the world.
We offer Custom Facials for all skin types. Our facials vary by location and include:
Refresh Custom Facial | Thermae Signature Royal Rose Facial | Raw Honey and Lime Facial | Neroli and Raw Cacao Facial | Clear Skin Facial | Calming Facial | Men’s Facial and Head Massage | Lavender and Chamomile Maintain Facial
Custom Body Care

Since the skin is the body’s largest organ, detoxifying it can have profound effects on your vitality and overall health. Our Custom Body Care treatments use only vegan, organic scrubs and clay masques formulated with plant and flower essences like sage, geranium and rose thoughtfully sourced. We begin your session by exfoliating the skin (either with dry brushing, or a sea salt glow or sugar scrub). This prepares it to receive nourishment. Melt completely into the treatment as your therapist combines soft strokes with massage in areas where toxins accumulate. This stroke-massage combo results in improved circulation and the decomposition of cellulite. You will leave your appointment feeling completely relaxed yet invigorated, with hydrated and youthful-feeling skin. Perhaps best of all: The results won’t disappear after your shower the next morning. You will enjoy the lush feel of your silky skin for days and days until it is time to renew.
Custom Body Care treatments vary by location and include:
Purifying clay masques and wraps

SpaRitual – Slow Beauty® for a Fast World: We care tremendously about your long-term health and that of our planet, so we carefully and intentionally select each product that we use and sell at our retreats. When we discovered SpaRitual, we immediately knew that it aligned with Thermae’s philosophy. SpaRitualis committed to caring for all living creatures and the environment; each product is vegan, non-fungal, organic and cruelty-free. The entire line is beautifully scented, exquisitely packaged, and is reasonably priced. For all of these reasons, we are confident that you will fall in love with SpaRitual products, too, which are offered for sale at each Thermae location so you can continue this self-care at home.
Starflower: A company that started with a small family garden grew into one of the most beautiful lines of skin care. Organic and bio-dynamic, the Starflower line is made with the highest quality botanicals, herbs, honeys and oils. The facials we offer at Thermae are well-thought, purposeful experiences for the skin. Whereas some skin care lines “force” the skin to change with quick, short-term results, Thermae facials support the cells of the skin and allow it to change naturally for healthy, long-term results. Products are sold at each location so the guest can continue the care at home and return every 6-8 weeks when skin turns-over.
At Thermae Retreat, Energy Work refers to a broad range of therapies that all have a commonality: Frequency. Each of us consists of a physical body capable of thoughts and emotions, but we also have an energetic system that supports and nourishes the physical, emotional and mental. This energetic life force is known in traditional Chinese medicine as qi (pronounced CHEE). In the Judeo-Christian tradition, it is called spirit, and in Ayurvedic medicine it is represented in the doshas. All of our systems are tightly integrated. You cannot treat one without considering the others, so our approach, as always, is holistic.
The integration between our emotions and our physical body is obvious to anyone who has gone through a period of great stress. Emotion-altering techniques such as meditation and visualization can actually impact the physical body, triggering its ability to self-heal. The energetic component in all of this is less commonly understood. This is where the expertise of our Energy Work practitioners can add a great benefit to your overall health.
At Thermae, we believe that caring for your energy field should be an integral part of your health and wellness regime, much like getting a dental checkup or a good haircut. We encourage you to visit one of our Energy Work practitioners on a regular basis to clear environmental impurities, release unwanted emotions, clarify your mind, and generally feel a bubbling up of joy. We know that in the physical body, new energy cannot enter unless old energy is cleared. We release what no longer serves our highest good and allow the energy that does to enter and integrate.
