In the mid-1980s, Kiva Lane practiced the art of makeup in Los Angeles, working for studios and commercial clients. After moving to Portland, she opened the Face Body Soul spa, but shuttered it two years later to explore Qatar with her family. Now, she's back and ready to once more apply her day spa skills (facials, full body treatments, and a long menu of massage options) to Portlanders in need. This time, though, she didn't simply want a place where clients would rejuvenate alone with just their therapists; rather, she wanted a space where people could rejuvenate together. That's why she's combined her day spa with a 20-seat tea shop, open for anyone to drop by and snack on cheese plates, soups and salads, or sip on additionally restorative Thai drinking vinegars, tonics and elixirs, and cups of tea from the bar's 32 loose-leaf varieties.
