Never had a facial before?
Your makeup will be removed at the beginning of the treatment. Our skincare therapist will be happy to properly cleanse your skin. You will be asked to remove all jewelry for the treatment. Although lockers will be provided for you to store your valuables, if you feel uncomfortable doing this, we recommend that you leave them at home if possible. In order to protect your clothing, you will be offered a toweling wrap to wear in order to keep your neck sufficiently exposed for optimal treatment. If you prefer, you may leave your clothing on. However this may impede any treatments to the neck and chest areas. The basic steps of a facial (this may vary according to treatment or skin type) include a light cleansing, complete skin analysis, exfoliation, cleansing, facial massage, masque, followed by toning and moisturizing.

After filling out our short medical questionnaire, you will be escorted to the treatment room by your therapist.

Throughout the session, please let yourself relax and don’t feel as if you must converse with your massage therapist. You are not expected to move a muscle during your treatment. Try to disengage your muscles as much as possible and pretend that you are a limp rag doll lying on the table. Allow your therapist to position and adjust your limbs as necessary. Some guests even like to use their time to fall asleep on the table. If needed, feel free to let your therapist know if they should use more or less pressure. Also, remind them of any problem areas if you feel they need extra attention. Remember, this time is for you.

Reserving Your Appointment

If available, same day reservations and walk-in guests are always welcome. Multiple appointments are reserved with a credit card or gift card.

Guests are asked to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. First time guests are asked to complete a questionnaire in order to provide your service provider with important medical and contact information. Online questionnaires are also available located on the upper right hand side for those who are under a time constraint. Late arrivals will result in a shortened appointment time so as not to inconvenience our other guests. After your treatment you are invited to spend additional time unwinding in the comfort of our Tatami room and Relaxation area. For you convenience, showers are available in these areas as well.
In order for you and all of our other spa guests to enjoy a relaxing spa experience, we ask that all cell phones be silenced and not used during your spa time with us. Emergency calls will be taken at our front desk and referred immediately if necessary.
If you must cancel your appointment, a 24 hour cancellation notice is required on single services and 48 hours for two or more services.

Cancellations without sufficient notice will be charged 50% of service prices and charged to your credit card or deducted from your gift card.
All spa appointments have been designed to allow appropriate time for full enjoyment of each service. Your late arrival may limit our ability to offer the fullest possible experience.

Treatments will be rendered only for the remainder of the scheduled appointment and you will be responsible for payment for the full service.

FOUNDER AND HERBAL CHEMIST, JULIE LONGYEAR
Blissoma is the elegant marriage of herbal form and function, created by the explorative mind of a scientific artist. When right brain meets left the result is botanical innovations that really work. I am proud to bring you the result of nearly a decade of my life’s work exploring the healing and enhancing possibilities of plants. I am formally educated in art and chemistry and have had a voracious appetite for self-education and creation. I now have more than 10 years of experience working with herbs and essential oils. I began this path at age 23 when I graduated from college and had to take care of myself while dealing with debilitating migraines that made it nearly impossible to retain a regular job. I have slowly and steadily retooled my own lifestyle using botanicals to fortify and rebalance myself. I have ingested and applied all manner of plant remedies in my quest for overall wellness. To make the cut into my routines it has to work, and work well. I bring that same mentality to the skincare and botanical products we make. I have spent hours poring over research and breaking new ground in order to defy contract manufacturer’s stock formulations. I am by nature a purist and perfectionist, which has helped create a sophisticated and unique collection of products that proactively heal and enhance your health. Blissoma is different because our ingredients and our formulas are different. We have chosen to work with a much stricter ingredient palette than even most “natural” brands. An initial feel of our products demonstrates the difference as the texture, color, and smell all distinctly tell the story of the nutritive ingredients contained therein. The entire line eliminates petrochemical ingredients, parabens, and synthetic colors and fragrances while maintaining a sophisticated feel. We do not use “vegetable emulsifying wax”, pthalates, neuropeptides, or other artificial “beauty” chemicals. Instead we choose active, potent ingredients that are based on nutrients, antioxidants, and advanced phytochemistry. Generally our ingredients are just 1 step away from the original plant material from which they came. We carefully research each of our botanicals to determine their most active principles and then each is extracted and added to our formulas in a way that preserves its most effective medicinal components. All products are 100% natural and almost our entire line is Certified Vegan, packed with certified organic botanicals, bioavailable vitamins, essential fatty acids, and skin-soothing seed oils. In addition to whole herb extracts some of the products also contain cosmeceutical grade botanical actives like Resveratrol, Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins, and Carbon Dioxide extracts from plants like German Chamomile and Carrot. These ingredients demonstrate Blissoma’s dedication to groundbreaking, pure actives from natural sources. New technologies have made it possible to create totally clean, solvent-free extractions and science has proven the efficacy of the nutrient, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory compounds they contain. You can trust our line because we control all production for all Blissoma products. This ensures the uniqueness of our recipes and the absolute purity of the final product. All ingredients are declared on our labels and nothing is hidden. We manufacture our own herb extracts and even juice fresh organic produce directly from local fields. Everything is made by myself and production manager Frank Wilderspin.
CODE OF ETHICS
Blissoma products are holistically beneficial to you, our employees, our suppliers and community. We support fair labor practices and partner with suppliers and peer companies that do the same. We seek cooperative success in our diverse and thriving marketplace.
Vegetarian and Animal Friendly
All Blissoma products are 100% Vegetarian and most are Certified Vegan. No animal testing is ever utilized on our products. Our ingredient suppliers must also verify that our raw materials are not undergoing animal testing now or in the future.
Real Raw Plants
Our discerning taste leads us to seek out truly innovative, living, clean and minimally processed plant ingredients. All products are gently manufactured by hand at our herbal studio to preserve therapeutic value. All ingredients are declared on our labels.
We respect our agricultural suppliers worldwide. We support organic farming to lessen chemical exposure for agrarian societies and provide them a toxin-free life. We also donate to social and environmental charitable initiatives to improve life for all people.
Because Blissoma products are made from only organic botanicals and plant-based ingredients they are 100% biodegradable. We minimize waste during production and use recycled and recyclable materials in our packaging and printing.
