Thermae Retreat to Hold Grand Opening Thursday

BOARDMAN, Ohio – Thermae Retreat, a new center for daily wellness and holistic relaxation services, celebrates its grand opening at 7250 W. Blvd. from noon until 6:00 p.m. June 1.

The celebration includes a ribbon cutting of the new facility, where guests will enjoy a guided tour of the facility, free chair massages, hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.

Thermae Retreat was founded in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. by Kelly Doyle and was named south Florida’s “Best Spa Retreat of 2016 and 2017” by Trip Advisor and Yelp.

Mahoning County resident David Kapp, owner of First Step Recovery, was introduced to Thermae Retreat in Fort Lauderdale two years ago. He was so inspired by the concept and benefits he experienced that he introduced Mahoning County resident Hilary Cook to Thermae. Together, they brought Thermae Retreat to Boardman.

Kapp and Cook have partnered with Doyle at the Fort Lauderdale location, a new location in Delray Beach Fla., and tnow he new Boardman location.

“Today, we find it very hard, and sometimes impossible, to sit quietly, let the mind rest and live in the present. It’s in this state that we find clarity, which allows us to give space to relieve stress and what we perceive as problems. We can then move through life with flow rather than resistance,” said Doyle in a news release.

Thermae Retreat’s holistic services, therapies and saunas are designed to help the body get back to its natural state of self-healing. Treatments include infrared and Finnish saunas, body scrubs, clay masques, organic facials, hydrotherapy and oxygen soaks and custom massage.

“I am excited to be able to offer a place for daily wellness to the residents of the Mahoning Valley. It’s truly amazing to see a client walk in uptight holding their phone, and then later smiling, relaxed and with refreshed skin. They go on with their day in a whole new way and everyone around them benefits,” Cook said.
