What makes the experience at Whispering Pines different from other spas?
Whispering Pines is an eco-friendly wellness spa, incorporating green practices into every aspect of its business, including the use of all-natural and organic products in all treatments.
Why is this important?
The lotions, oils and skin care products used at most spas contain potentially harmful chemicals, some of which are believed to cause cancer, reproductive or neurological problems. The last thing you should worry about while relaxing at a spa is whether the products being used in your services might be hazardous to your health. At Whispering Pines, we research every product we use or sell to ensure that it's safe and beneficial, and that the companies we work with use organic and eco-friendly business practices.
