TRIED & TRUE FAVORITES
You’ll find massages, nail services, and facials at Truce Spa, but the Truce signature treatments are what make this spa stand out. The Truce Massage combines the best of the best, mixing Hawaiian, Chinese, Thai, and European massage techniques for full-body relaxation. The 90-minute Truce Facial lifts, tightens, and firms skin thanks to an advanced protein enzyme that stimulates cell metabolism (plus, it includes a six-step at-home system for long-lasting results). The Truce Manicure & Pedicure focuses on not only resilient color but sealing in moisture and hydration — a treat for hands and feet!

Receive a one-on-one experience at Namaste Bellevue, where owner Wendy uses her years of wellness knowledge to not only recommend treatments for skin, hair, and body — but to provide the treatments, as well. Try Wendy’s cranial sacral treatment, which adjusts the subtle motion of cerebrospinal fluid as it circulates around the skull and spine. Using a very light touch, Wendy can determine where restrictions are located and gently release them, which can relieve pain, migraines, sinuses, and more in just one hour.
UNIQUE & UNFORGETTABLE
Step into the illuminated pink salt brick-chambered rooms at The Salt Spa of Bellevue, where the healing benefits of salt encourage relaxation inside and out. Inhale and exhale the benefits of salt therapy, which has been said to help with respiratory issues such as allergies and asthma. Salt-focused services and sessions include Reiki and private salt room therapy. The Salt Spa of Bellevue also offers energy bodywork, yoga, full-moon special events, massage, and more.
Specializing in East-meets-West treatments, Yuan Spa’s award-winning services (they’ve been featured in national publications such as Allure and InStyle, as well as regional magazines) include facials, massages, and holistic Eastern services such as cupping and Gua Sha therapy. Hydrotherapy — a Chinese ritual involving wandering various temperature-controlled environments — is a specialty here. For maximum relaxation, start in the 100-degree hot pool before breathing deep in the eucalyptus steam room. Next, step into the 70- to 85-degree cool pool before rinsing off in the cold drench shower, finishing with warming up in the chromatherapy cedar dry sauna. Moving from temperature to temperature is a jolt to the system in the very best way.
Let it all go in a sensory deprivation tank at Float, where your body is buoyed and begins to feel weightless, allowing your mind to unwind. One thousand pounds of Epsom salts are added to the water in each tank, so floating is nearly effortless. As you drift, stress melts away. In silence and stillness — and, minus any other external stimulation — body and mind can wander, or be calmed and lulled. Benefits include stress and pain relief, deeper focus during meditation, improved sleep and creativity, and recovery from jet lag. Once your feet hit the ground again, you’ll have a renewed sense of clarity.
Think of the Bellevue Club as the 21st-century version of a country club, complete with upscale amenities, athletic facilities (including two indoor and one outdoor pools), dining options, and wellness programming. Wander its 250,000 square feet of fitness space and see what you stumble into — perhaps a yoga class, a game of pickleball, a deep tissue massage, or happy hour at Splash restaurant (wellness is about balance, right?). Stay at the boutique Bellevue Club Hotel for all of the perks — without becoming a member. Sixty-six suites and rooms include such added bonuses as views of Mount Rainier or the Cascades.
