Sanctuary Salonspa

Get ready for the sublime. Step beyond the spa door at Sanctuary in downtown Minneapolis, and snuggle under the blankets on your heated massage table. Your massage therapist will ease you into the perfect treatment for whatever ails you. Need deep-tissue work? Want to try out hot stones? Aching for a scalp massage specifically tailored to desk jockeys? Aveda essential oils and aromatherapy will guide you toward relaxation so deep you'll feel downright giddy after your session. All too often there's room for excuses when it comes to pampering yourself. But at Sanctuary, you can book a last-minute deal and come out feeling like you've saved both your spine and your wallet.
