Set in a restorative body-positive
Josée completed an MA in Wellness and Spa Service Design from Estonia to learn about traditional spa practices rooted in ‘health by water’ and hydrotherapy, the original meaning of spa for healing and wellbeing. Her research focused on the significance of community and social wellbeing in retreat settings. She was the recipient of the International Spa Association’s scholarship in 2014. During this time, she trained in a thermal spa practice called whisking at the International Bath Academy and later completed a certified training with the Lithuanian Sauna and Spa School.
