About Us

Sloco inspires healthy habits for a lifestyle that creates both personal and planetary wellness through guilt-free self-care.

How it all began…

For years, I suffered through the pain, headaches and embarrassment of having anyone in the same room with me hear my jaw pop and crack anytime I chewed or yawned. I accepted that I would have to live with it for the rest of my life because a TMJ specialist told me that my issue could only be resolved with surgery, and even then it was no guarantee.

About 5 years later, my life changed. I was working in radio at the time, and my work had brought in a massage therapist to treat us! Within 30 minutes, she was able to provide me with a significant amount of relief which sent me on a path for looking for answers in unexpected places. My life had dramatically changed and I just had to learn more… it was time for a career change.

After going through training for this healing art, I found that spas operated with the mindset of pampering, rather than healing. So, I decided to focus on my own practice which later evolved into what it is today… a wellness spa!

Flowers and Sign in front of Sloco

Sorry, Kermit… It’s easy being green.

Some spas spend absurd amounts of money on fancy tile, lavish interior design and environmentally unfriendly features. Here at Sloco, we decided to take things another direction… We are using the interior of our space to educate our guests on the importance of keeping the environment in mind, not only for the future of our planet, but also for our health!

Where you may have seen us…

I always leave here so relaxed and feeling amazing! I really appreciate that they take the time to talk to you both before and after the massage to pinpoint focus areas and give you tips on how to take care of your body at home. Highly recommend!
Our treatments were all top notch, and we left our time at Sloco feeling so relaxed, rejuvenated, and rested. We each had pretty different requests for what we wanted out of our treatments and all 3 of us felt 100% satisfied with the service, hospitality, and overall vibe of the spa.
I love your Sloco, the people, the space, and the overall vibe. They always teach me something, every time, and it makes me aware that there is always something new to learn in how to proactively manage my wellness. It is so much more than 'just' a place for massages or facials. It feels elevating just to walk in the door.
