Naturopathica now available at the Spa

To celebrate the introduction of Naturopathica at the Spa, drop by this Sunday, July 1 from 10am – 1pm for free samples of our entire line of Naturopathica products.  

About Naturopathica

Naturopathica seeks to inspire healthy lifestyles with products and well-being rituals that put pleasure, warmth and simplicity into caring for yourself.

The Naturopathica name stems from naturopathic medicine which emphasizes healing with natural therapies and honors several core principles of naturopathic medicine in their work:

  • The Healing Power of Nature: We believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.
  • Do No Harm: We never use toxic ingredients that could be detrimental to the health of the individual or irritating ingredients that engage the body’s immune system in low-grade chronic inflammation.
  • Treat the Cause: We address the root causative factors to treat an imbalance.
  • Holistic Approach: Skin disturbances have multiple origins including the mind, body and spirit, each of which must be addressed.
  • Prevention: We focus on preventing imbalances with a good skin care regimen instead of treating symptoms.

In following these principles, Naturopathica creates safe and effective products and spa experiences that promote health and beauty.

Naturopathica Products

Naturopathica’s Skin Care collection is designed to address inflammation, the primary cause of premature aging in skin, using proven botanical ingredients and clean cosmeceuticals to deliver results.

Their Body Care and Herbal Remedies bring wellness full circle, combining traditional healing practices with modern inspiration to promote skin radiance, relieve stress, restore sore muscles and enhance vitality.

Naturopathica Spa Experiences

Naturopathica helps deliver unforgettable spa experiences through unique and sensorial spa treatments. Naturopathica facial treatments are clinically formulated to stimulate, firm and brighten skin without harmful synthetic ingredients. Naturopathica Massages are deeply therapeutic treatments combining the best massage therapy techniques with traditional healing practices using clinical-grade essential oils and plant extracts to balance and heal the body.

“This place takes you by surprise, in the best of ways. “

From the Walter Magazine March Issue

Field Guide: River Dunes

“Do you dream of time “off the grid”?  Yearn for that special place to share a laugh, grill a steak, and have no worries beyond what to grill tomorrow?  My family has found just the spot, not too far down the road, called River Dunes. River Dunes is a boating community nestled along a harbor off Broad Creek where the Neuse River meets the Pamlico Sound. This place takes you by surprise, in the best of ways. “

“You’re likely to fit right in. If you’re craving time away from it all, this is the place: excellent fishing, lovely accommodations, spotty cell service. River Dunes is quiet and beautiful and relaxed – enough to keep every member of the family satisfied. If your priorities are like mine, River Dunes creates the perfect retreat. Rocking chairs, reading lamps, and the wine cork await you.”

At 12pm, a $25 luncheon, sponsored by River Dunes, all proceeds benefiting Heartworks, will be held in the Harbor Club, overlooking the marina. Speakers include: Sue Lee, Founder of Heartworks, Chris Heckert, a Sr Pastor in the United Methodist Church and Bruce Hartman, author and former top executive of Footlocker and Yankee Candle.

Directly following the luncheon, a Book Signing by Bruce L. Hartman with his newest book, Jesus & Co, will take place in The Red Rickshaw’s new location in the Harbor Village, with 50% of all book proceeds to benefit Heartworks.

“Much more than a Marina…”

From February’s SpinSheet Magazine:

“We were hooked from the moment we passed the first day mark signaling our arrival. We immediately became aware; River Dunes is much more than just a marina…

It is more like a 21st century frontier oasis, idyllically situated in a vast liquid desert where the Pamlico and Neuse Rivers flow into the Pamlico Sound; a winter haven for us that offers year-round boating in plenty of deep, navigable water, with much opportunity for excellent sailing and many destinations to explore. Entering the beautifully protected Grace Harbor, we navigated a set of six perfectly aligned channel markers leading through a meticulously manicured fairway lined with elegant buildings reminiscent of old Charleston-style southern architecture. “Oh my!” Suzanne exclaimed, pointing. “Is that the club house?” We realized that this would be home sweet home for the next month until we began our second leg farther south after Christmas…”

This gorgeous weekend getaway sits on the pond in Boathouse Row, located just off the Marina within walking distance of the Harbor Club with distinctive architecture and charming landscaping so unique that Southern Living magazine selected Boathouse Row as a Southern Living Inspired Community.
