LUTSEN, MINN. (August 4, 2017) - Nestled in the woods of Northern Minnesota, Caribou Highlands Lodge is thrilled to announce the opening of their new Woodlands Spa that is serving guests and locals alike.

After continual requests for more services than just massage, Caribou Highlands has completely rebuilt their previous massage space to accommodate additional spa services such as body wraps. Not only did they want to tailor this new spa to their out of town guests but it was also very important to keep locals in mind.

In addition to new services, Caribou High- lands has hired a local favorite and very talented Massage Therapist, Brigette Nies to manage the new spa. Nies has been practic- ing healing therapies for over two decades and is an experienced yoga instructor, master herbalist and Reiki Master.

“I feel inspired by the beauty of the lake and the nature that surrounds us,” said Nies. “And I enjoy incorporating natural elements into services to create unique healing experi- ences for my clients.”

Woodlands Spa at Caribou Highlands is the place to unplug and reconnect with nature. Spa services include massage and body work, body treatments such as mud wraps and shea butter wraps and vital enhancements. It is the best place to take the time to tend to your well-being with the perfect balance of health and relaxation. In addition, Woodlands Spa offers several yoga classes throughout the week.

“The space is cozy, inviting and filled with amazing art by local artist, Heidi Sobanja,” said Nies. “We use high quality handcrafted organic products and strive to connect with each guest and structure the service to meet their needs.”

Guests can also come in early or stay afterward to relax in Caribou Highlands’ indoor and outdoor pools, sauna or hot tub while enjoying the spectacular view of Moose Mountain.

Woodlands Spa is offering Cook County and Lake County residents a 10% discount on all services at the spa. To redeem this dis- count, locals can go to this web address: or type LOCAL in the message field when reserving an appointment online.
