Coming soon in 2024!
We are excited to announce the soft opening of our Wellness Gazebo here at the Springs! It’s been in our vision for many years and we are thrilled to be offering this special opportunity to deepen your experience at the Springs with a nourishing bodywork session with Anjuli Mahendra or Alok Rocheleau, both long-time healing arts practitioners and neighbors to the Springs!
Treat yourself to some much-deserved therapeutic bodywork and massage in a private, safe and beautiful outdoor creekside setting surrounded only by shady towering oaks, bird song and the babbling waters of Sonoma Creek.
