Ashby House Wellness Immersion—take a judicious “time out”

Some of us have experienced a transformative few days when we stepped back from life, to return with a new perspective.  A judicious “time out”, expropriated from our responsibilities, can be worth more than six months off.  I am preparing an affordable, easily accessible destination, which is dedicated to customized renewal.  Today, we are solely a massage therapy centre; but in a year and a bit, this is what I have in mind for Ashby House:

Stay for six nights.  Select eight therapies in combinations that suit you.  In the heart of downtown Ottawa, we provide guided, or solo excursions:  Nature is only 10 minutes away, in the Gatineau National Capital Park (for example), as is the world class Le Nordik.

The therapies:  Work out in our gym, or receive postural, and movement pattern profiling, with your personalized exercise prescriptions.  Our hydrotherapy room gives you the chance to book the pool all to yourself, float for an hour, swim against a current, or receive a hydrotherapy treatment.  We feature Massage therapy (the centre piece of any spa), a kitchen, with guidance on dietary practices, and life coaching.  Meditation can continue throughout your stay in a dedicated space, and time.

We are still a year, and a bit, (and a lot of work) away.  I rely on a shoestring budget, and a genius team of builders to transform the space.  Quite a bit of stardust is still required!  Follow our progress each month here, in this year-long path to the launch of our overnight programs.

We are currently looking for registered massage therapists who are a good fit. We also welcome contact from Registered Dieticians, Life Coaches, and Exercise Therapists who are looking for professional space in a setting as described.
