We are excited to announce a new service experience option when booking your next
You will be prompted at booking for the option of Mindfulness: A quiet chair experience that lets us know you would to simply enjoy a quiet, peaceful meditative stillness without all the social chit chat. Upon arrival there will be a consultation of services that day and then time to relax! Sacred space will be held for you respectfully and with non-judgement.
We are now be able to offer blow drying as optional service upon request when not required as an element of the service.
It is recommended in Phase III that blow drying services remain limited as it may pose a higher risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Therefore, we will be adhering to the following state protocols to decrease any risks:
- Limiting the frequency or duration of blow drying;
- Limiting the number of people in the space when blow drying;
- Providing fresh air (access to outdoor air by opening a window or door), if possible, in areas where blow drying occurs.
Certain travel restrictions are still in place per Rhode Island's state regulations. We are following all mandated procedures at this time. If you have traveled to any hot spot, high risk states within the previous 14 days:
You will need to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to booking any service
You may waive this wait time by providing us with proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of being tested
For the safety of our guests and patrons we ask that you respect these protocols to help prevent any possibility of spreading the virus.

We are so grateful and thankful for your patience and understanding as we navigate all these changes together! Your safety and comfort is our top priority. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please reach out to us via email:
