THE WHITE FEATHER ORIGIN
White Feather Spa originated in beautiful St. Thomas, Ontario and it's a city that is very proud of its history, its railway history to be exact. So while choosing a name for the spa, Rachael wanted a name to subtly reflect the town’s long-standing culture.
While researching railroad lingo, the term “White Feather” was discovered and learned the phrase referred to the plume of steam that comes from the safety valves of locomotives.
Rachael was drawn immediately to the visual metaphor of how often the daily pressure in our lives (and corresponding stress on our bodies) needs an opportunity to let go and find much-needed rest. Interestingly, the train operator would have to be very skilled to know how to maintain steam pressure in all conditions. The concept of White Feather Spa was born with the focus of clients having a safe, welcoming and knowledgeable place for personal wellness; to relax the body and reset the mind for a renewed balance of health and wellness.
"So great to return to White Feather Spa today! The moisturizing facial was a definite pick me up. I’ve never experienced a facial that was explained in such detail while it was being done. Rachael has created such an inviting space and is so amazing at what she does!"
