Portland >Common Ground Wellness Ctr
Great Place, loved it!.
If you want to feel great, come here!
I've had massages, soak, saunas and naturopathic work there and it's changed my life for the better. I highly recommend trying it out for yourself.
Best place in all of Portland!
Professional practitioners, great staff, great prices, pro-health & wellness, relaxing, clean, beautiful space.
Best open air tubs and massage therapists in Portland.
Common Ground Wellness Center in NE Portland is as close to nirvana as one can find in Portland. I have been to the new facility four times and it gets better each time. The staff is friendly, the service excellent, the place is spotless, the showers (four) are refreshing, the sauna and the hot tubs are set at the perfect temperatures for optimal comfort. As for the open air hot tub setting, it simply doesn't get any better. The prices are very reasonable for the value received. The professionalism of the massage therapists on staff is impressive. They listen. They offer suggestions. They deliver.
This place is truly one of Portland's treasures.
First of all Citysearh got the address wrong, its
5010 NE 33rd Ave, Portland, OR - (503) 238-1065 This is where the HOT TUBS and SAUNA are. I have been there several times and am seriously thinking of becomming a life time member. Its totally worth it!! The cooperative really has out done themselves with this new location, according to my Massage Therapist there, he told me that the building used to be a Cascade Mental Health center.
For those of you that are body conscious the tubs are clothing optional, which means most people most of the time are with out clothing. No big deal though its a holistic wellness center and patrons are expected to respect other's mental and physical space. It's a place to unwind from the crazzy society we live in and heal. There are times that are only for men and only for women as well.
I am new to the area and wanted a place where I could get a good deep tissue massage, this was the place! Thank you again the New Common Ground Wellness Cooperative is a 6 star joint!
Relaxing and very enjoyable!. Having visited Inner City Hot Tubs several times when in Portland, I can highly recommend it to both visitors and locals alike. The atmosphere is serene and fellow visitors are usually friendly and polite. Do not worry about how you look, you will be accepted just the way you are. When the new facility opens in February 2008, it promises to be even better than the original location! Be sure to call first to make a reservation and make sure you are not planning to go during the men only or women only time slots each week. If you have never visited a clothing optional venue, the hot tubs will be a safe and enjoyable way to have that unique experience. You may want to return again and again. You also may want to schedule a Swedish massage as part of your visit.
Worth the $11 for an hour.. I went on a Saturday night at 6:00 and it wasn't that crowded. When I read that it was clothing optional I figured that a few people may not wear a suit. When I arrived with my suit in bag and then had a tour I came to the realization that nobody wears a suit. Where else in Portland can you roam free of clothes and in forced mixed company. After the first 10 minutes you get use to seeing the skin of every shape and size and really start to admire the human form and find beauty in that men and women can enjoy relaxing together with out anything on and not have it be sexual in any nature. Thank you Inner City Hot Tubs for a great place where one can be free and not all wrapped up in a wet suit that clings to you. When you are relaxed it is amazing how fast an hour can go. If you have a fear of being seen by someone this is the best way to get over it. Size of anything doesn't matter here and it is a comforting feeling. Sitting in a hot tub when it is raining and conversing with people you have never met nor will you more than likely see again unless of coarse you go there often enough, is a cool thing. Once the clothing is off you don't know what the background is of someone. So kudos once again to ICHT for having a place so unique yet so accepting.
