Meet The instructor

Sophia Spiegel

Art is something that brings me a lot of joy and a goal of mine is to share the techniques that I’ve learned over time to help other’s experience that same feeling! You don’t need to be a professional to create beautiful artwork and I’ve formed an appreciation for more simple styles that will be taught during these courses. 

Over the years, my style has developed tremendously and I love a variety of mediums, including: ceramics, watercolor, oil, acrylic, charcoal, ink, and more! My love for art began at an early age, likely because I was surrounded by artists in my family. I found myself painting murals on my bedroom walls & doors whenever my collection of canvases would run out and I was even offered jobs to paint murals for my high school, along with the city of Cincinnati. My early years focused solely around landscapes and impressionist inspired techniques, usually with acrylic or watercolor. Recently, I’ve developed an appreciation for more simple, line art styles; it’s something that’s not incredibly intimidating and it’s a great way to incorporate different mediums like ink or gold accents too. 

Keep an eye out for some of my art pieces that are hanging around the spa!

Have some questions?

we've got answers

Our Salt Room is designed to mimic the environment of a natural salt cave so all of the walls are lined with Himalayan salt, which emit negative ions that can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression!

These ions counteract overstimulation caused by electrical pollution. While one Himalayan salt lamp releases low levels of ions, a fully lined room creates a high level of neutral energy known to relax your mind and body.

The standard session is 45 minutes, but we offer a 20 minute option just in case you can’t stay for too long; the shorter session has a higher concentration of salt in the air.

Private Session: $25 / person or $15 add-on to service

You can also reserve the Salt Room for a Private Group Event for your choice of 45 minutes to 2 hours! See our events page for more details

Our halogenerator grinds up Himalayan salt into fine particles that fill up the air in the room. When you breathe in these tiny particles, all of the toxins and mucus that build up inside your body adhere to the salt, and then your body flushes it out drink plenty of water!

Breathing in the dry salt aerosol is said to foster good sleep, alleviate symptoms of allergies and asthma, relieve hypertension and stress, and even cure hangovers. However, we make no official medical claims, we are just believers and rely on what we have learned and heard.*
