Body, mind, spirit: the ministry of St. Vincent’s Health System’s holistic health mission, since 1898.
The body-mind-spirit ministry expanded more than a decade ago, when St. Vincent’s visionaries imagined a wellness complex integrating state-of-the-art fitness facilities and a nature-inspired day spa with resort level amenities. This tranquil escape would provide stress reducing therapies within a faith-based framework.
That vision-turned-reality is St. Vincent’s Spa One Nineteen. Here medically trained massage therapists ease tense muscles and estheticians provide tranquil facials, cosmetic consults, nail treatments and exceptional service within an upscale wellness center.Read More
Medical researchers say stress reduction is central to fighting and preventing disease. Spa One Nineteen’s design elements -- stacked stone, rich woods, diffused light, fresh flowers, earthy green/blue/copper interiors – set that healing tone, blending warm welcomes with wisps of fragrance and soft instrumental music. St. Vincent’s Spa One Nineteen’s 10,000 soothing square feet includes treatment rooms, a couple’s suite, client lounges, sauna, steam room, bath, and boutique.
Few expect a faith-based health system to offer a Vichy shower or upscale nail treatments in such a distinctive atmosphere. That’s why this nontraditional approach to health and healing has drawn national attention – snagging cover story status from Les Nouvelles Esthetiques & Spa, American Edition -- and constant consults from industry insiders.
Within the spa’s luxuriously-appointed interiors, the wellness vision is fulfilled. Couples celebrate anniversaries. An expectant mother indulges in a facial. A bridal party giggles over manicures. A cancer survivor marks a year of recovery.
