"Spa Habitat isn’t shy about flying its organic banner. The small chain’s owners, plant a tree for every service that one of their four spas performs (more than 50,000 trees have been planted to date). They use 100% wind energy to power Spa Habitat facilities, and are dedicated to using only premium organic and natural products throughout the spas. The owners believe that such eco-friendly and wellness-conscious business practices help make Spa Habitat a standout among day spas. That, and their extraordinary retail boutiques."

"We’ve been around enough to tell you a painless wax doesn’t exist—sorry. But the level of torture can vary, and Spa Habitat is relatively easy. The procedure is like a spa treatment (warm neck pillows and hot tea while you wait), and natural wax exfoliates skin while removing hair. Soothing postwax skin creams are available in the apothecary, but we never experience bumps or irritation."

Spa Habitat: Dallas' Organic Retreat (read article)

March-April 2012

"These days, there is an abundance of products touting the word “organic” but a quick review of the ingredients used in making them will convince you that “organic” is often a loosely used term. This is definitely not the case at Spa Habitat... When I looked up the word “habitat” for its official meaning, I found it is typically defined as “the place where a person or thing is most likely to be found.” If that’s the case, when it comes to luxurious and natural skincare -- you’ll find me at Spa Habitat."

"There are dozens of great salons in town, so it’s not easy picking just one. But Spa Habitat gets our vote. The setting is serene. (Organic tea? Yes, please.) The staff is professional. (No amateur Chatty Cathys.) And the services are superb. The use of all-organic products ensures we’re healing as much as relaxing. We just hate that we wind up addicted to another of the boutique’s lotions and potions every time we go."

Top Spots for Getting Gorgeous

October 2010

"By taking a trip to this organic oasis, wind energy is the primary power source, and a tree is planted for every service performed. As if that weren’t enough to make you feel good, aestheticians also pamper skin by massaging the face and neck with a gentle alpha-hydroxy peel derived from bilberry, lemon, orange, and raw sugar extracts."

Best Wax Salons in America - The Top Hair Removal Places in the U.S.A.

October 2010

"In Dallas, visit Spa Habitat in Plano or Uptown. Both locations use organic, natural ingredients to get rid of any nagging hair. Spa Habitat uses the safest, most effective hair removal products – free from toxins, artificial colors, fragrances or chemicals. These products remove the hair, yes, but also leave your skin exfoliated, smooth and hydrated. Bonus: the spa offers two types of pure products – an organic sugar (yes, sugar to remove hair – usually for larger parts like legs or arms) or natural wax, which is better for smaller, more intricate areas, like your brows or lip. Wow, incredible."


Dallas Observer

Best Massage in Dallas

December 2009

"From the reclaimed wood floors to the organic oils and balms, a massage at Spa Habitat is a luxurious way to go green. The spa uses recycled paper for paper products, organic cotton for linens, and Green Mountain Energy's wind power to fuel the operation. So it's easy to offset your guilt emissions at indulging in such a sybaritic pursuit—hey, by getting a massage here, you're helping the environment. A dimmed reception area with cushy chairs and curtains for privacy begins the relaxation. The warm aromas and even warmer rice packs used in the Green Peace Massage (the spa's most popular massage) take you all the way to limp-noodle state. As far as environmental action goes, this beats a protest any day."
