Barbara Close, founder and product architect of Naturopathica, brings her Healing Arts Center & Spa to New York City.
Opened in previews on November 20, 2015, Naturopathica Chelsea, located at 127 West 26th Street, marks the opening of the second Healing Arts Center & Spa for Naturopathica, following 20 years of legacy as a trusted destination for wellness in East Hampton, NY. Naturopathica Chelsea offers a 21st Century wellness experience that encourages personal transformation and a holistic approach to wellbeing through time-tested traditions, remedies, and rituals.
Naturopathica Chelsea provides a 360-degree approach to wellness, including a full-service spa with six treatment rooms, a Vitality Bar, a Remedy Bar and a Sensory and Meditation Lounge. The product line available at the center includes the full range of Naturopathica products for skin and body health, along with a signature collection only available at Naturopathica Healing Arts Centers & Spas.
“Naturopathica Chelsea is an urban destination dedicated to 21st Century wellness. Our goal is to encourage individuals to make wellness part of their everyday life and to experience the pleasure of healthy living,” says Barbara Close, founder and CEO of Naturopathica. “In a city like New York where everyone is in constant motion, I wanted to create a place where people can slow down, relax and experience the healing arts, as well as learn how to integrate healing rituals and remedies into their daily routines.”
Unique to the center, the Remedy Bar is an herbal dispensary featuring teas, herbs, tinctures, and essential oils. The Remedy Bar is a place for individuals to discover the benefits of traditional rituals for healing the mind and body. Combining the healing properties of plants with the aromatic pleasure of sipping a warming cup of tea, the Remedy Bar offers hand-selected loose leaf teas from the finest estates throughout the world, from areas such as Assam, Taiwan, the Fujian Province of China and the Shizuoka Province of Western Japan. Along with handcrafted teas, the bar has premium botanical bulk herbs, herbal tinctures (liquid extracts) and essential oils.
Therapeutic Massage and Holistic Facial Treatments
Naturopathica Chelsea spa treatments are inspired by Barbara’s passion for self-care and wellbeing. Treatments feature therapeutic oils with Kava Kava Root, Lobelia and Cramp Bark to target the needs of urbanites, specifically muscle and joint health, stress relief, natural immunity (and adrenal fatigue), women’s wellness and skin health. Naturopathica Chelsea estheticians and therapists are highly-trained professionals from around the world who work with clients to customize treatments, and offer at-home rituals that nourish the mind, body and spirit.
The Vitality Bar is more than just another morning stop for your daily juice. It allows guests to explore the healing benefits of house-made herbal tonics, elixirs, teas, cold-pressed juices, and kombucha on tap, as well as healthy grab-and-go snacks made with locally sourced, sustainable ingredients to improve vitality.
Sensory and Meditation Lounge
The Sensory and Meditation Lounge is a visionary experience where guests will reboot, refocus the mind, and reconnect with the breathtaking imagery.
