Spring Equinox Sound Healing Ceremony

**In an effort to help those affected by the recent floods in Sonoma County, we are donating 100% of the proceeds from this event to West County Community Services.**

Zarina is coming back with her musical partner for another spellbinding shamanic ritual. Be prepared to get carried away on a journey to explore our profound power to heal ourselves through sound for the Spring Equinox!

Voicing traditional songs from the Shamanic communities of Zarina’s Sakha native culture, you will hear a reindeer breath, the sounds of northern birds and animals.

Shamanic throat singing, overtone chanting, rhythms of mind-altering states, and vibrations of the mouth harp, are to awaken the healing process of the organs and allow you to slide deep into your cells and bring forth the blessings during this time of renewal and new beginnings!

Afterward, a limited number of people will have an opportunity to have a deeper healing experience with sound therapy in an Enzyme Footbath.

The Cedar Enzyme Footbath immediately following the event is $15 with very limited tickets available.
Entry fee of $15 can be applied to any same day service.

Ultimate Girlfriend Getaway – Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary

If you’re like many of us, it can be difficult to break away from the daily grind and give yourself the attention you deserve. We are all familiar with what happens when life gets busy — we see our friends a little less, maybe drop that extra yoga class we love so much. Often one of the most intimate and enjoyable ways to reconnect with one’s self and good friends is through a relaxing spa day experience. This is where we come in.

Tea for two (and you and you)

Begin the morning with the girls by slipping into an authentic cotton Japanese robe, and settling into a private room overlooking the Japanese Tea Garden. Take some time to chat with your friends about setting intentions for the day. Hoping to reconnect with your bestie? Let her know! Enjoy some light conversation over a cup of tea crafted to work in tandem with your warming cedar enzyme bath.

Why experience our warming cedar enzyme bath in good company? Because it is just that — an experience! As the only day spa in North America with such a service, our cedar enzyme bath is quite unique and many agree is best enjoyed in pairs or with friends. Enjoy yet another curated garden view from the cedar baths, and settle into the warmth around you. Because it is a heat treatment, this service lasts 20 minutes with cooling lavender towels and cold water refreshments periodically in between. Chat with friends or ease into the moment and take some time for you.

Organic Facials

After your cedar baths, enjoy an electrolyte drink and carry on with the transformative journey by heading to your organic facials. Getting a facial with friends often feels like the ultimate self-care and treat yourself experience. Why? A little less intimate than a massage, our organic facials, in tandem with the cedar enzyme bath leaves you feeling as if your body just got a bit of a makeover. Smooth and glowing, your skin (and friends) will thank you for arranging a full day of self-love at the spa, in the loving hands of Osmosis.

After your services have completed and if the weather is fair, head to the Field of Hammocks with your flock for some Hemi-Sync® sound therapy. These unique recordings, based on research into how sound waves influence the mind, help optimize your brain’s activity and promote deep relaxation and creativity. A perfect reset for active minds!

Meditation Gardens

A favorite activity for many who find themselves at Osmosis for a spa day is the time spent in the meditation gardens. Walking the changing path, opening the gate and discovering the magic of the tranquility the gardens have is something special, especially with company. Enjoy a few moments of stillness on the meditation cushions overlooking the pond; notice the buzzing life abound.

One of the most wonderful parts about a spa day with the girls is that it is both beneficial to you as an individual as well as enjoyable with a small group. A spa day with others gives you a chance to reflect inward as well as a time to enjoy outwardly with the ones you love the most  –  choosing an environment that brings you closer will generate memories that can last a lifetime.
