NHBA: One The Wellness Spa

So a couple of Friday's ago, Hawker attended the grand opening celebration of One The Wellness Spa, which is located in Bikram Yoga Hampden (911 W. 36th Street, above Dogwood.) At the event, the crowd was "liberal Hampden upscale" and though Hawker was tempted to swipe a beer to take down to her dinner date at Dogwood (where the gnocchi was perfectly melty and the atmosphere just right,) she resisted.

Here is the price list distributed at the event. The offerings are limited at the moment--it's really just massage, but perhaps expansion of services to really live up to the "spa" name is part of the long-term plan.

The prices are pretty much at market rate, FYI. At the moment, they seem to be offering special packages of massage and Bikram yoga bundled together. Bikram yoga is not Hawker's thing--it's too hot and regimented for my taste--but I know many practitioners who SWEAR by it, including Monica--Hampden's superstar marathon runner, so maybe it just might be your thing!

The space is simple, but serene. (The flooring is lovely, FYI.) Who knew a view of a Hampden parking lot could be so peaceful?

They currently offer facials, waxing, mani/pedis, and soon acupuncture!
