Ithaca is your feel-good escape!

Taking care of yourself means more than attending a yoga class or getting a massage – it’s about being out in nature, too. In Ithaca, surrounded by thundering waterfalls and scenic state parks with easy access to miles of walking trails, wellness is a way of life. Discover the outstanding array of health and wellness options around Ithaca and enjoy everything from waterfall hikes to Reiki and deep tissue massage in a destination renowned for its natural beauty.                
Firelight Camps- A camping experience unlike any other, graceful safari tents are furnished with hardwood floors, king or queen beds, and a private balcony where you can soak in the view with a fresh pot of coffee or a cocktail. Rise with a complimentary, locally inspired breakfast in the tented lobby. Unwind on the surrounding trails or in a hammock under the forest canopy. Experience the onsite August Moon Spa or explore the surrounding vineyards and waterfalls of the Finger Lakes. Settle around the fire ring under starry skies, with s'mores to sweeten the company of friends, family and new faces.  
August Moon Spa- Located at La Tourelle Hotel and mirroring the unique natural environment of the region, they use local ingredients such as herbs and botanicals grown on the spa’s grounds to create one of a kind treatments. A Vichy Waterfall brings the outdoors in, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Rasa Spa- Holistic health is the focus, and the spa menu includes everything from medical massage to energy work treatment through Reiki, hot stone massage, and immune boosting remedies.
Spa at Gothic Eves- The Spa at Gothic Eves invites guests to unwind and heal in their sumptuously appointed spa and treatment rooms. Book an alternative treatment such as crystal therapy or the Sacred Journey featuring massage and Shaman practices for the body and mind to shift towards balance.  
Namgyal Monastery- The North American Seat and Personal Monastery of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The monastery hosts online classes, retreats, and weekly meditations open to guests of any faith. The core study program at Namgyal is a three-year curriculum which emphasizes the systematic combination of Tibetan language, philosophy and practice of both sutra and tantra.  
A critical form of health and wellness is exercise. It feels good to move and stretch at the end of a long day, and Ithaca offers plenty of hiking trails, exercise classes, biking trails, and in person and virtual yoga sessions.
