My family's recent visit to Galena had skiing for the kids and my husband, and a bit of spa-therapy in store for me. Having only been to the area once before, I read the reviews for RestorationSpirit and booked the two-hour 'Stress Elimination' Therapeutic Treatment, which is perfectly named. The two-hour journey to complete relaxation included the literal melting away... More

I want to say that I really enjoyed my deep tissue massage at Restoration Spirit. David is very good at getting at those tense muscles and losing them up. I felt great after I left and for the next few days. I will certainly book another appointment with David. JLL

One of the best massages I have ever had. David was very informative and helpful. He has developed a line of lotions that I am anxious to try. I as very comfortable the rest of the day.

So glad you enjoyed the class! There's so much misinformation being sold about essential oils and we are happy to make the general public aware of the pitfalls of that information and how and why we use the essential oils that we do in our products! Thanks for the kind words! More

My girlfriend and I visited Galena hoping for a relaxing week. It was winter and even though we do not ski, we found plenty to do. Our favorite stop was Restoration Spirit where we took meditation and essential oils classes. We also took advantage of the services offered and did some balancing point therapy along with some Raki healing, energy... More

Thank you for your kind words. I am dedicated to bringing holistic healing to a much higher level than most holistic practitioners. Devotion to study, practice and mediation are just some of the reasons clients find the healing at RestorationSpirit much different than anything else they've experienced. More
