Here at Osmosis we celebrate Earth Day every day, but on Earth Day? Now, that’s special. In keeping with our monthly tradition of a fun, social evening at the spa, this Earth Day, April 22nd will be a night to remember. We will provide drinks (adult beverages as well as our superb Osmosis blend tea), healthy food and community-style cedar enzyme baths as always. And this month, we will feature Trathen Heckman as our guest speaker.
Trathen Heckman is the founding executive director of Daily Acts Organization, publisher of Ripples, an award-winning journal and a backyard farmer. He is the former executive director of Green Sangha Organization and is on the board of directors for Transition US. Seeking to inspire the engagement of hearts, minds and senses, Trathen educates and works with community, business and municipal leaders to create programs, policy and models which harness the power of nature and inspired action to restore the health of our lives and communities.
Recently, Osmosis was visited by a group of Chinese Journalists touring Sonoma County. While most of them were focusing on wine, the Sonoma County Tourism Bureau knew Osmosis was a stop not to be missed. The weather was beautiful, and the journalists couldn’t have been happier. The highest compliment Osmosis received was their opinion of our gardens- our visitors said it made them feel like they were back home, and that our Asian aesthetic is authentic.
Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary has been on a winning streak. Every year The Bohemian newspaper polls it’s readers on their favorite businesses. And for the last 12 years, Osmosis has been winning the Best Day Spa category in the North Bay. New this year is the Best Couples Spa category, which Osmosis is proud to win for the first time.
Every year Osmosis strives to provide the best customer service, the best massages, facials and the jewel in the crown- the cedar enzyme bath! Locally famous for this one-of-a-kind treat, the cedar enyme bath must be experienced fist-hand. Beginning with a private tea-service in the amazing private tea garden you are guided by a knowledgeable and gracious bath attendant into the bath. There you are positioned in a warm embrace of finely milled cedar. The heat is deep-penetrating and soothing, and the experience is one of total calm and respite from the stress of the outside world. No wonder the Bohemian readers keep coming back and voting Osmosis as the best Day Spa in the North Bay!
