– Editor’s Note:
My wife and I were guests of the W Suite Incorporated within Yelm’s The Spa @ Wellspring on Thursday, May 17. We received a tour of the entire facility, an upscale Seattle-styled boutique for personal care which includes a Traditional European Sauna, an Esthetician, a Licensed Massage Practitioner, and their signature “W Suite.” The W Suite includes a 2-person Ofuro traditional Japanese Soaking Tub, massage chair with foot massager, plus an adjacent rainbow shower and jets accessorized with fine hair and skin care products for the use of patrons. The Spa @ Wellspring has a cheerfully decorated lobby and waiting room with each of the purveyors’ rooms connected under one roof. Having experienced Japanese soaking tubs on our visit there in 1999, we were familiar with the concepts which this Yelm specialty shop has authentically incorporated, especially with their unique tub refill faucet emanating from the ceiling. Attention to detail is The W Suite’s hallmark: from the luxurious Turkish towels to aromatherapy oils, quality organic soaps and shampoos, nature sounds or music of your choice, and filtered lemon waters, plus the warm, professional welcome extended by The W Suite’s European-born hostess, Margot.
This is a wonderful gift idea for Father’s Day, summer wedding couples, or to treat yourself and your partner the feeling of being away yet not having to journey to a foreign land, except in your mind. Couple this session as we did afterward with a fabulous dinner and wine or signature cocktail at Gather GastroPub next door, and you will be creating a memorable experience right here at home. The W Suite sessions are for one hour or an hour and a half, with introductory rates currently offered.

The unique combination natural salts in your tub contain many minerals (including potassium and magnesium) which helps the nervous system, reduces stress and can even relieve water retention.
Thousands of years ago, both the Greeks and the Romans recognized the therapeutic effects of warm sea water, penetrating the skin and entering the blood stream with its relaxing, regenerative and stimulating properties.
Please let us know before your visit what soaking experience you desire.
*** Relax & Unwind….enjoy the water temperature of your soaking experience as a warm soothing oasis.
*** Detox & Boost……. enjoy the traditional Japanese soaking experience that has the water temperature hot! at around 109 degrees. We advise to stay in only as long as comfortable, then take a cold (er) shower and then re-enter the soaking tub, etc. This is thermotherapy, hydrotherapy, wet salt therapy and aromatherapy, all in one and that is simple, effective and luxurious.
