Zenana Spa and Wellness Center located on SE Clinton Street is the first business of its kind in Portland offering classes, goods, and services focused on expectant moms and parenting families. All are welcome to visit Zenana Spa, however several options on the spa menu are specifically designed to nurture, support, and celebrate mothers. There are few roles more selfless than that of parent or caregiver, with duties that often result in irregular sleep patterns and lack of personal time. Taking time to care for yourself in order to better care for others is the mission of Zenana Spa, and since opening in August 2006, the spa strives to be a place where pampering comes before Pampers, if only for an hour or two.

Zenana Spa's services menu full of one-time and reoccurring options reads like a dream wish-list of all in need of a little “me” time. Treat yourself or the new, expectant, or seasoned mama in your life to a unique and therapeutic hot stone massage or rejuvenating facial, neither of which demand anything from the recipient other than quiet, uninterrupted alone time (priceless!). Allow a few moments before or after your appointment to peruse the spa’s boutique, stocked with locally-made items such as Baby Bundler carriers (available in organic cotton) and nursery-friendly Vance Family Candles made of 100% American soy and free of all toxins and synthetic fragrances. Looking for the perfect gift for a co-worker’s baby shower or a holiday present for friends with a new babe? Zenana Spa offers gift certificates that can be used on any good or service at the spa.

Where to begin among so many options for rest and relaxation? Owner Zenana-Renee Rose weighs in with her three must-have services:

Girls' Night Out pedicure party: great for baby showers, birthday parties, blessing ways or simply an evening (or afternoon) out with the girls. The fee includes four pedicures and a bottle of red, white or sparkling wine.


Facial Product
Flourish Facial With Biodynamic Facial Upgrade: The upgrade gives you the benefits of the Eminence biodynamic line and ensures the highest quality ultra-organic nutrients that your skin can drink up.

Ninety-minute massage with top shelf (apricot oil) enhancement: the apricot oil smells divine, is high in anti-oxidants and leaves your skin thoroughly quenched.
