NEED TO KNOW
Based in sunny San Diego, holistic health club Saffron & Sage (saffronsageliving.com) was created to connect the community to wellness specialists, practices and products. With offerings focused on both science and spirituality, the club considers itself “a wellness concierge” for every step of clients’ journeys. Located in the Little Italy neighborhood, the 6,000-square-foot urban sanctuary includes three light-filled treatment rooms, plus a movement and meditation studio, wellness lounge, plant-based pharmacy and clean beauty boutique featuring the club’s line of in-house skin care.
Saffron & Sage is primarily a membership-based spa, which allows the team to really connect with clients and customize services to their needs. Indeed, holistic health plans are created for each member based on diagnostic testing of their blood, microbiome and immunity. The plans can be some 30 pages long, with recommendations including nutrition advice and lifestyle habits. The club’s team of practitioners includes medical doctors, acupuncturists, psychotherapists, breathwork instructors and more, who all come together to help members achieve their wellness goals.
Popular services include acupuncture, fire cupping, massage therapy and breathwork, as well as the club’s yoga classes, reiki trainings and seasonal retreats. Saffron & Sage also recently launched an IV lounge for clients with chronic conditions, and it provides a range of products to its clientele, including ritual kits, flower essences and herbal teas. Services and products are also available à la carte to nonmembers.
