The Dragontree, a Holistic Day Spa, Announces the Opening of a New Location This Fall in the Portland International Airport
The Dragontree Holistic Day Spa, located in NW Portland, announces the opening the first spa in the Portland International Airport this coming fall. After an extensive interview and proposal process, The Dragontree was selected based on their established history of providing exceptional therapeutic services, commitment to being a sanctuary from the stresses of life, and dedication to reflecting Portland’s values of ecological consciousness and sustainability practices.
The design will be radically different from other airport services in that it will be a beautiful, soothing and private refuge from the bright lights, sounds, and hectic pace of the airport. The extensive menu will have options to accommodate all travelers’ needs and schedules. There will be private treatment rooms for massage, facials, and waxing as well as an ambient communal space with elevated couches for therapeutic foot baths, head neck and shoulder massages, chair massages and a variety of foot treatments. Eventually the menu will also include manicures and pedicures. In addition to these services there will be a carefully chosen selection of immune supporting vitamins and herbs, natural sleeping aids, organic body and skin care products, as well as tasteful gifts for the savvy traveler.
Appointments will be primarily on a walk-in basis but reservations will also be happily accepted. There will be a link to the spa’s contact information on the Portland Airport’s website.
About The Dragontree Holistic Day Spa: Portland’s finest day spa offers a variety of services to still the mind and mend the body. The Dragontree is the perfect place to receive massage, facials, Acupuncture, waxing, Ayurvedic counseling, and herbal consultations or to gather with friends and family and receive foot treatments, head, neck, & shoulder massages, and hand treatments. All treatments are tailored to each individual’s specific needs with the intention of creating the space for true healing to occur. The Dragontree, a Holistic Day Spa and The Clearing Cafe is located at 2768 NW Thurman in Portland, OR 97210.
When Aphora Spa opens its doors at 2300 Chestnut Avenue in Glenview on October 7, spa devotees and newcomers alike will be treated to something different – a magnificent multi-million-dollar setting catering to the ultimate in relaxation, a full menu of eco-friendly services at surprisingly affordable prices, and a personal, in the flesh, non-stuffy welcome from owners Kathy and Mike Duncan. Yes, this newest addition to the North Shore may set a new standard in the spa world, comparable to those ridiculously expensive “ranch-type” places in Arizona and California, by understanding that success is predicated on how you are made to feel, from the moment you call or walk in until well after your visit is complete.
“We’re in the business of making you feel better,” says owner Kathy Duncan who, along with husband Mike, created Aphora Spa at the same location in which their former tenant had built out an incredible spa space but went out of business in less than two years – due in part to a challenging economy but perhaps even more to not knowing how to respond to a challenging economy.
“Everyone is cutting back on their ‘feel good’ spending these days,” explains Kathy. “We need to be sensitive to that reality, and we believe our pricing will reflect that.” In addition to pricing that, for exclusive, self-indulgent spa services averages 10-20% below the typical North Shore spa, Kathy and Mike’s business background has taught them that an over-built, over-priced spa catering primarily to that special occasion quickly becomes an under-utilized venue – particularly in a recession. (Kathy, a Northbrook School District PTA President and mother of three, spent many years as an executive in the restaurant industry. Mike was a successful insurance agency owner before becoming a commercial and residential property developer.)
“We need to be a regular part of our clients’ lives,” says Kathy, “and we’re going to do whatever it takes to deliver that caliber and range of extraordinary, eco-friendly mind, body and soul services. There’s nothing worse than paying a lot of money for a customized facial or deep tissue massage and feeling like running home to take a shower and ‘clean off’ from the experience. At Aphora Spa, the before- and after-treatment cleaning and relaxation are half the fun with our 3,000+ square foot ladies’ locker room (the men’s is smaller, but still appealing) complete with a waterfall, hydrotherapy, meditation dark room and tea lounge. You may never want to go home!”
With a certified green footprint, the area’s most complete menu of eco-friendly services and treatments, a healthy cafe and lounge that will include outdoor seating by the lake whenever the weather cooperates, a green boutique and array of extras from nutritional counseling to acupuncture, and a wife and husband team that knows how to build a successful business by catering to their clients’ needs, Aphora Spa should be around for quite a while.
Spa Shop and Dine is the NJ Event of The Summer
NJ day spa launches summer promotional event at Pier Village in Long Branch. The event includes discounts and specials at Pier Village shops and restaurants, and of course, big savings at Aquamedica Salon & Day Spa.
NJ Spa owner launches discount day at Pier Village called Spa Shop and Dine. Each Tuesday in June shoppers can get great discounts at participating shops and Aquamedica Spa will be offering discounts on their famous spa services.
Valentina Chistova, owner of Aquamedica Salon and Day Spa in Pier Village, likes the challenge of an aggressive marketplace. The savvy 60-year-old spa owner has been successfully surviving the country’s worst recession with clever marketing and meaningful messaging. Now she has turned her skill towards drumming up business for her fellow Pier Village neighbors.
The concept is simple, each month, pick a dedicated day of the week where Pier Village businesses can come together and offer special discounts to patrons who spa, shop, or dine on that particular day, hence the name ‘Spa, Shop & Dine’. The discounts will be focused on driving business to slower days of the week for all participating vendors.
The initiative kicks off this June on Tuesdays. Patrons will be able to take advantage of discounts and premiums from Aquamedica Salon and Day Spa, The Wine Loft, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and The Turning Point restaurant. Each month they hope to gain more participation from Pier Village businesses and continue to offer phenomenal deals to shoppers.
Chistova commented on the program, “We have already been offering great deals to our clients. Despite the recession, we still want them to be able to come and enjoy our services. As we became successful with our own programs, we decided it made sense to ask other Pier Village businesses to participate with us. It is a win-win situation for all involved.”
Spa, Shop and Dine kicks off in June with no end date in mind. “If the program is a success, I see no reason why we will stop,” said Chistova. “We would love to continue the program all year round.”

The Alvadora Spa at Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, has developed a menu of citrus-based spa treatments that is unexpectedly indigenous to the Phoenix area and offers a very different “sense of place” from the typical desert-inspired spa treatments.
In 1929, the original Royal Palms Resort and Spa was built on 65 acres in the middle of a citrus grove at the base of Camelback Mountain. Today, many of the original trees are peppered throughout the grounds and around the Alvadora Spa. Further, in years past, citrus was one of four key drivers of the Phoenix economy.
At a resort synonymous with romance, the Alvadora Spa’s menu of signature spa treatments featuring the fragrant orange blossom scent is quite fitting. The orange blossom scent comes from neroli, the fragrant bitter orange blossom which produces one of the most cherished and expensive oils in the botanical kingdom. Neroli is named after Anna-Maria de la Tremolille, Princess of Nerola (near Rome) in the 17th Century. According to tradition, orange blossoms were used in bridal bouquets to calm apprehension before the couple retired to the marriage bed. Today, the orange blossom represents joy, sensuality, weddings and romance.
The Alvadora Spa in Phoenix was specifically designed to provide a selection of spa treatments for couples in the spa’s Acqua Dolce suite. Featuring two heated stone tables with overhead rain showers, the suite opens to a private outdoor patio with a fireplace and waterfall shower. A therapeutic herbal tub and open views of the garden highlight the adjoining Acqua Giardino room.
Citrus spa treatments include:
Citrus Grove Facial, 90 minutes starting at $200. This is an anti-aging facial using products brimming with neroli-based antioxidants to combat premature aging and provide skin with a healthy glow. The orange blossom skin care treatment includes a luxurious acupressure and lifting facial massage, a hydrating hand treatment and an application of Vitamin C (an ampoule is provided to take home for continued results).
Orange Blossom Body Buff, 60 minutes starting at $135. The sweet, uplifting scent of neroli oils is enchanting. Neroli is a naturally balanced moisturizing essential oil from the orange blossom, and it helps to restore moisture and support the skin’s renewal process. A vigorous exfoliation is followed by a scalp and neck massage while the body is cocooned in warmth. The spa treatment is finished with a rich body lotion and mists of neroli water.
Citrus with a Twist Massage, 60 or 90 minutes starting at $135 or $195 respectively. Combining the sense of smell with touch, this massage uses a variety of essential citrus and orange blossom oils to balance and restore energy.
Simply Citrus Manicure, 30 minutes starting at $35. A soothing therapy for dry, parched hands begins with a citrus soak, followed by nail grooming, a moisturizing application of citrus lotion and polish.
Simply Citrus Pedicure, 30 minutes starting at $45. Beginning with a citrus soak to rejuvenate the feet, this pedicure is followed by nail grooming, a moisturizing application of citrus lotion, and polish.
For information and reservations, call the Alvadora Spa at 602-977-6400 or visit www.royalpalmsresortandspa.com.
