Tranquility Wellness Spa

By Jennifer Rawlings, VP of Wellness

Tranquility is the state of being calm and at peace.

This was the goal for what people would experience when they visited the Tranquility Wellness Spa on the Trinity Woods campus. When we envisioned bringing the multiple salons on campus together, it was very purposeful. We wanted the spa experience to be available for everyone at any level of care. Our dream has been exceeded and the Tranquility Wellness Spa has been a perfect avenue to bring the whole campus together for a tranquil experience.

The Tranquility Wellness Spa is a state-of-the-art space that allows residents to freshen up their hair style, receive a manicure or pedicure, or truly relax with a massage, all while never leaving campus. The Spa has licensed cosmetologists who are ready to style, cut, and color your hair as well as provide waxing services. The licensed nail technician is available for hand and foot treatments and the massage therapist can provide consistent quality treatments for tired or sore muscles. The team is led by a spa coordinator who’s main objective is to make sure each client receives a high quality experience.

“The Tranquility team is so passionate about making their clients look beautiful on the outside and even more importantly, help them feel beautiful on the inside,” said Jennifer Rawlings, VP of Wellness. “The ladies in the Spa take pride in genuine, personal relationships and want to make each client feel special the minute they walk into the Spa.”

If you or your loved one haven’t experienced the Tranquility Wellness Spa, now is the perfect time. Each month there are specials and, with the holidays approaching, a gift certificate just might make the perfect gift! For more information on services or to book an appointment call 918.346.6659.

Spiritual Wellness

Spiritual Wellness is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony or contentment with oneself and others, while working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world.

The path to spiritual wellness can involve meditation, prayer, affirmations, or specific spiritual practices that support your connection to a higher power or belief system. Having compassion, love, forgiveness, altruism, joy, or fulfillment, helps you to enjoy your spiritual health. Your religious faith, values, beliefs, principles, and morals define your spirituality.

Taking care of ourselves spiritually can help us approach life more positively and build a resilience that can help us through many of life’s challenges, which in turn can help us to age more healthfully. Across different religious backgrounds, the strength we fi nd from our faith is universal. For many, faith has
often been the anchor that reminds them that no matter what storm comes their way, they will not be broken or completely overcome.

Spiritual wellness is important for many reasons. First, it allows you to think about your purpose in life and really establish your “why”. We’re all put on this earth for a reason. Some of us discover that reason earlier than others. However, taking the time to explore your purpose and why you do the things you do
is a strong foundation for living a meaningful life.

Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.

Another reason spiritual wellness is important is it allows us to connect with a higher power through religion and faith. Personally, I am a Christian and therefore believe in an all-powerful, all-knowing and ever-present God. Therefore, I pray daily, read the Bible and attend church/worship services in
order to grow my relationship with Him.

Lastly, spiritual wellness allows us to clear our minds and learn to accept the things that are out of our control. The reality is, we live in a fast-paced, crazy world that is only getting more complicated by the day. Having the ability to detach from the world and accept that what happens is often out of your control
is a powerful life skill.

For my spiritual wellness, I choose to adhere to what the apostle Paul said (paraphrased), “I have learned contentment in every situation.” Philippians 4:11-13
