Massage, Watsu & Spa Services
Massage and other health treatments available at Harbin focus on touch from a place of love and respect. For many of our practitioners, massage is not only a profession, but also a spiritual practice. This distinction brings a dimension and purpose to each and every treatment -- one that you will rarely find at a typical "spa" or "resort." Perhaps it is the reason why so many guests consider their sessions to be the highlight of their visit to our retreat center.
Appointments may be made by phoning or visiting the Health Services office, located in the Redwood building just below the pool area. We suggest that you call us ahead of your visit (up to one month in advance) to help assure the availability of the treatment of your choice at a convenient time. (If you are interested in visiting us for a massage or Watsu® without using Harbin's guest facilities, please call in advance for details.)
Prepayment is necessary to reserve your time, so please have a credit card number ready when you phone, or payment ready when scheduling in person.
Cancellation or Rescheduling must be done 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time to avoid charges. You must contact the Health Services office independently from your room reservation cancellation or rescheduling.
