In the 1700 square feet space, there is a steam and show room, a large foyer and private rooms that are peaceful and relaxing. True to the nature of the Lorraine building itself, Dharma Studios is a characteristic space with hardwood, brick and large windows. While the focus is on treatments that include herbal body scrubs and authentic massage techniques, there are also a variety of apothecary style retail products that include meditation cushions, oils and more.
