Sage Root Healing Is a Hidden Dallas Oasis

By Pamela Sosnowski

It's easy to miss if you're walking down Moser Avenue in Dallas, but this historic part of the city hides a treasure. Tucked behind a historic home and accessible only through a private gate is a woman's relaxing escape, Sage Roots Healing Retreat & Spa. The lofty spa offers massage therapy, energy healing, yoga classes and more, offering a tranquil reprise from daily life.

"It is truly a private retreat oasis in the middle of the city, and the perfect spot for a relaxing escape," co-owner and massage therapist Lauren Elise said. "Surrounded by tall bamboo and hundred year-old pecan trees, our treehouse spa is a breath of fresh air that creates a sense of peace and clarity."

Sage Roots Healing was a shared dream between Elise and co-owner Ashley Shams. The two women worked for the same spa and wanted to provide women with holistic options for treating stress and pain. They rented what was formerly an art studio and transformed it in Sage Roots Healing in 2014. The location offers the best of nature to enhance the spa services; wind chimes and chirping birds are often heard during the day, and colorful flowers and vegetation bloom at the entrance.

Sage Roots Healing is open seven days a week and while the services are for women only, men are welcome during couples' services. Several add-on services are available to enhance any massage; these include cold stone eye therapy, hand and foot treatments, and dry brushing, in which a natural bristle brush is used to exfoliate the skin. Elise says that the spa's most popular services are its signature therapeutic massage, activated earth back therapy (a massage that focuses on the neck, shoulders, and back), and Reiki energy healing.

Bundles are available that combine massages with add-on treatments, for a fuller pampering treatment. The spa offers specials on some bundles, but clients are welcome to mix-and-match to create their ideal spa day.

Yoga and meditation classes are also taught at the spa. The smaller class size and more intimate setting allows for more personalized attention from instructors. The yoga class is a basic one designed for beginners or anyone wanting a slower-paced through the poses. Meditations are also conducted during every full and new moon phase as a way of purging old energies and welcoming new positive ones. Coming soon is an essential oils class that the staff is developing. It will focus on revamping one's medicine cabinet with more natural health and beauty treatments.

Sage Roots Healing also offers a maternity massage for expectant moms to help ease the aches and discomfort associated with pregnancy. Besides reducing stress and pain, it can help improve sleep and circulation. All products used at the spa, whether the client is expecting or not, are organic and completely safe to use.

Once a client has booked a service they receive detailed instructions on where to park and how to access the entrance. Elise enjoys introducing new clients to her oasis and welcoming back repeat ones.

"The quality of our massage, spa, and energy healing is exceptional because we care very passionately about natural health and making our city a brighter place," Elise and Shams said of introducing new clients to their studio. "While we love everything about our job, our favorite part is getting to spend our day in a beautiful spa retreat and helping women find freedom from stress and pain."
