Tincidunt augue interdum velit euismod in pellentesque massa placerat duis. Vitae et leo duis ut diam quam nulla.

Operating three locations in Northwest Portland, Portland International Airport and Boulder, Colorado, The Dragontree is the passion project of a husband-and-wife team who have spent their adult lives dedicated to helping their community achieve optimal wellness in both mind and body. Briana Borten, who launched The Dragontree when she was just 23, is a licensed massage therapist and Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist; she also developed the spa’s line of natural body care products.

Dr. Peter Borten is certified in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which encompasses herbal medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, qi gong and psychology, and has developed a line of pain relief patches and herbal tinctures that are available to spa clients. Together, they have made it their mission to build a more peaceful world by helping individuals discover inner peace and balance. Over its decades in operation, The Dragontree has been named one of the best spas in the United States, and their apothecary and lifestyle products are carried by leading practitioners, spas and major retailers across the country.

With its peaceful, candlelit treatment rooms and serene staff, this tranquil retreat in the Alphabet District provides clients with a rare respite from the sensory assaults of modern life. Treatments include traditional, specialty and couples’ massage; classic and specialty facials; acupuncture; and Ayurvedic “bliss therapy” sessions. For the ultimate stress relief, consider the Full Bliss Immersion ($408), a 3.5-hour treatment that spans a full range of Ayurvedic rituals: Garshana, a dry skin-brushing technique using raw silk gloves; Abyhanga, a system-balancing massage; Swedana, a detoxifying steam tent treatment; and Shirodhara, an anointing of the forehead with warm sesame oil to awaken both mind and body.

The session concludes with a relaxing foot bath in the Sangha room to help you gently transition back to the demands of the “real world.”

This one-of-a-kind urban getaway is home to the only salt caves in the Pacific Northwest, offering halotherapy sessions that deliver healing energy through the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties of Himalayan salt. The salt rooms maintain a negative ion environment believed to reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma, promote relaxation, decrease stress and enhance overall well-being—perfect if you’re feeling a bit run-down or under the weather.

Within the gently glowing salt walls, you can pamper your tired body with one of Zama’s signature massage offerings: The Salted Chocolate Massage employs decadent-smelling, deeply-moisturizing warm cocoa butter to nourish and hydrate the skin as the massage therapist works through every knot and sore spot, while the Detoxifier Signature Massage combines Swedish and deep-tissue techniques with the ancient healing practice of cupping.

Zama also caters directly to male clientele with a full slate of spa services designed specifically for him, including a 2.5-hour wellness package that makes a perfect birthday or Father’s Day gift. For just $290, you can treat him to a 30-minute soothing foot treatment, 90-minute deep-tissue massage, 30-minute custom facial and choice of local cold brew or another refreshing beverage.

Tincidunt augue interdum velit euismod in pellentesque massa placerat duis. Vitae et leo duis ut diam quam nulla.

Though Dosha operates six thriving salon/spa locations throughout the city, the Hawthorne Street outpost is by far the largest and most luxurious member of the chain. Upon arrival, you’ll ascend the dramatic grand staircase to reach the vast 8,000 square-foot facility, which features a co-ed soaking pool, full-service Aveda salon, massage, facials and waxing treatments. Before your selected session, you’ll slip into a plush robe and spend a few minutes relaxing in the posh lounge, perhaps with a light snack and a cup of hot tea; following your appointment, you’ll be invited to enjoy the other amenities, including soaking pool and steam room.

Among Dosha’s most popular facial treatments are the anti-aging Vitamin C Facial ($110), which employs a five-phase transforming massage technique on the face and neck to leave skin looking firmer, brighter and more radiant, and the Botanical Skin Resurfacing Treatment Facial ($110), which uses Aveda’s Tourmaline-Charged system to refine texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.

In addition to multiple massage modalities, Dosha clients can add a full-body skin treatment like the Aveda Herbal Body Wrap ($95), which combines lymphatic massage and a customized mask to release toxins, hydrate skin and soothe the senses.

For the ultimate indulgence, book one of Dosha’s full-day spa packages. You can customize the offerings or opt for the Rejuvenation bundle ($365), which includes a 90-minute Swedish massage, dual-exfoliation facial, rosemary mint body wrap and a shampoo and styling session in the salon.

Tincidunt augue interdum velit euismod in pellentesque massa placerat duis. Vitae et leo duis ut diam quam nulla.

Now in its 40th year, Spa Sasse boasts a reputation as a trusted leader in the Portland health and wellness sphere. In addition to traditional spa treatments like massages, facials, waxing and nail care, this sleek, modern facility offers specialized services such as trigger point injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, dermal fillers and microneedling.

Medical Director Kristi Winn (MSN, APRN, FNP-C) leads an all-star team of nurses, advanced aestheticians, licensed massage therapists, nail technicians and other staff, all of whom are dedicated to delivering a world-class client experience to everyone who steps into the expansive, 5,000 square-foot spa.

To experience the best of what Spa Sasse has to offer, consider investing in a multi-treatment package, such as the Ultimate Spa Day ($500), a four-hour pampering marathon that includes an infrared sauna session, salt-glow body scrub, massage, ultimate spa pedicure, Cocoon body treatment and a sumptuous spa cuisine meal. Short on time? Recharge in a flash with the 100-minute Divine Renewal package ($260), which combines a custom facial and custom massage to get you back to your day while sporting a healthy inner glow.

4. Kanani Pearl Spa

Nulla aliquet enim tortor at auctor urna nunc id. A arcu cursus vitae congue. Sed egestas egestas fringilla phasellus faucibus scelerisque. At tellus at urna condimentum mattis pellentesque.

Tincidunt augue interdum velit euismod in pellentesque massa placerat duis. Vitae et leo duis ut diam quam nulla.

In opening Kanani Pearl Spa in Portland, founder Mary Ellen MacKay sought to bring the spirit of aloha that she discovered as a massage therapist in Maui back to the decidedly less-tropical Pacific Northwest. Kanani specializes in lomilomi, the ancient art of Hawaiian healing massage, which MacKay discovered through her friend and mentor Dr. Maka’ala Yates, a master teacher of the technique.

For the fully-immersive Kanani experience, we recommend one of the extended spa packages. The half-day Sanctuary option ($532) focuses on the integration of mind, body and spirit, with a one-hour massage, one-hour custom facial and the spa’s signature Green Tea and Seaweed body wrap. For $409, you can “Escape to Paradise” with a one-hour massage, Kanani Pearl custom facial and hydrating sea salt body scrub. For peak physical rejuvenation, consider the Ultimate Wellness Experience ($430), which combines a Hawaiian Lomilomi heated stone massage and a volcanic clay purifying wrap to hydrate, heal and soothe the skin.

Or you can shoot for the Perfect Day ($489), a balanced sampling of the best treatments Kanani has to offer: a reviving steam session, papaya pineapple body scrub, 85-minute massage with hot stones and signature facial.

If an escape to Hawaii isn’t in the cards in your near future, a visit to Kanani Pearl can help you capture the serenity of the islands—for a few hours, at least.

Tincidunt augue interdum velit euismod in pellentesque massa placerat duis. Vitae et leo duis ut diam quam nulla.

The owner of this eponymous oasis is both a globetrotting traveler and a longtime veteran of the Portland spa scene, opening her first boutique spa (Face Body Soul) in the city in 2008. She closed its doors in 2010 when her family relocated to Doha, Qatar, but when her journey brought her back to Portland two years later, she launched Kiva Tea Bar and Spa with the vision of pairing soothing spa treatments with the culinary rituals she had sampled overseas. In the decade since, Kiva has offered pampering massage therapy, facials, body treatments and acupuncture to each weary soul who walks through the door of this urban refuge.

Massage treatments, while on the pricey side, are worth every penny for the full-body revitalization they impart. The 105-minute Signature Tranquility Massage ($175) begins with a 15-minute foot bath in the facility’s dedicated “foot sanctuary,” followed by a rhythmic Ayurvedic massage paired with the healing scents of aromatherapy. The session wraps up with a warm oil scalp treatment, leaving you in a state of utter relaxation. The Balinese Ceremony ($175) delivers 90 minutes of bliss, with a skin-softening silk-glove exfoliation, hot stone massage and a generous application of custom-blended body butter. Cap off your time with a 30-minute stint in the infrared sauna ($30), which employs varying light wavelengths for deep tissue repair and detoxification, improved circulation, stress relief and reduction of pain.

No visit to Kiva would be complete without a visit to the café, which serves a variety of acai bowls, smoothies, teas, coffee-based beverages and wine. Complete your healing journey with the anti-inflammatory turmeric latte, a spicy blend of honey, coconut oil, turmeric powder, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, salt and steamed dairy, almond or oat milk. For a boost of energy to get you back on the road, try the cardamom rose latte, with two shots of espresso, steamed milk, rose water, vanilla and cardamom.
