Sauna Strong

4420 Drew Ave S. Suite B

Sauna Strong is built on the purpose of bridging the gap between fitness and wellness, merging ancient practices, modern modalities and state-of-the-art recovery technology. It was created by founders Harrison Klein and Luis Leonardo to provide a safe, nurturing and empowering environment where every individual can tap into their inner strength and resilience. 

 “We offer a comprehensive approach to fitness, wellness, recovery and performance enhancement through a variety of cutting-edge options. Our signature state-of-the-art infrared sauna rooms pump you with energy like you have never experienced before in saunas.

“Unlike traditional saunas, our bio-stacked, multi-energy, Infrared Sauna Rooms utilize light to directly heat your body, leading to a profound and revitalizing sweat that aids in the elimination of toxins. Not only does this process promote detoxification, but it also helps soothe sore muscles and alleviate joint discomfort, enhancing your overall well-being,” the duo says.

In addition to the Bio-stacked Infrared Sauna Room workouts, the team goes above and beyond to cater to all aspects of your health journey. “Besides our breath-first approach to fitness, we provide a range of cutting-edge therapies, ensuring our members have access to top-of-the-line fitness and wellness offerings.”

Face Foundrié

424 N Washington Ave.

Face Foundrié is an all-inclusive facial bar. The expertly trained estheticians and staff empower customers to look and feel their best by providing cutting-edge services with accessible pricing.

The facial bar was founded in 2019 by Michele Henry, featuring walk-in service accommodations for lash extensions, facial waxing, 20 to 40 minute facials, and an array of custom-curated skincare products.

“Our goal is to provide efficient and effective services for all things face: facials, lashes, brows and skincare. We pride ourselves in offering an impeccable service experience and strive for 100% customer satisfaction. We aim to be affordable, approachable and accessible to all. Staff and clients alike, we believe every person walking through our doors should be treated with the utmost respect, compassion and attentiveness,” Michele says.

Foundrié has three different monthly membership options for those looking to treat themselves regularly. Choose the Facial Maven Membership for a focused facial and enhancement such as a chemical peel, the H2Glow for a hydra dermabrasion session, or the Royal Treatment for a series of cutting-edge micro remedies for any skin concern using oxygen infusion, hydra dermabrasion, ultrasound and radio frequency. Each membership includes 10% off all products and other services.



514 Second St. SE

Watershed is a new destination for ritual-based communal bathing in a respectful, safe, and clean environment, coupled with a full offering of holistic spa services and integrative wellness treatments. Holistic services include massage, skincare, acupuncture, healing modalities, cupping and gua sha.

Nell Rueckl founded Watershed to fulfill her long-held dream of bringing communal bathing to the Twin Cities. 

“A watershed moment is a turning point, a time when important change happens,” she says. “We are at a moment in history when we need deep healing for ourselves, our communities, and our planet.”

After years of research, she is delighted to invite everyone to participate in a joyful ritual of cleansing and care.

“I have been very intentional in my work to create a space where everybody can feel safe, calm, and welcomed so that they may heal and be rejuvenated through the bathing ritual. Participating in community allows us to become more whole as individuals. This experience is magnetic and creates a continually regenerative source of energy. It’s transformational at every level.”
