(Portland, OR) February 1, 2011. The Dragontree Day Spa celebrates its first anniversary at The Portland International Airport this month. The Dragontree was chosen to be the first, and only, full service day spa at PDX and opened in February of 2010. The spa, located on Concourse C between gates C-10 and C-12, has an established history of providing exceptional therapeutic services, commitment to being a sanctuary from the stresses of life, and dedication to reflecting Portland's values of ecological consciousness and sustainability practices.

The airport location’s design is a beautiful, soothing, and private refuge featuring an extensive menu to accommodate all travelers’ needs and schedules. There are private treatment rooms for massages, facials, and waxing as well as an ambient communal space with elevated couches for therapeutic foot baths, head, neck and shoulder massages, chair massages and a variety of foot treatments. The Dragontree also offers natural nail care for both men and women, including manicures and pedicures using MINX nails, an all natural alternative to toxic and smelly nail polish.

“The Dragontree Spa has been a fabulous addition to the passenger service offerings at PDX,” says Chris Madsen, general manager of business and properties with the Port of Portland. “Travelers truly appreciate the tranquil atmosphere and extensive listing of services offered, and it’s a great way for them to unwind and relax before a flight.”

The airport location also offers a selection of immune supporting vitamins and herbs; natural sleeping aids, organic body and skin care products, and tasteful gifts for the savvy traveler. “All of our retail products have been hand selected by Dr. Peter Borten and myself. We are dedicated to providing quality items that will support people in their journey toward balance,” says spa owner Briana Borten. “We are very pleased with the growth in profit we have seen since opening a year ago. We have exceeded our projections by an average of 25% every month in the first year. We hope that as people get accustomed to making it a part of their travel routine, we will see that growth continue,” adds Borten.

Appointments are primarily on a walk-in basis but reservations are also happily accepted, and you can also book appointments online for the airport location to coincide with your travel schedule.

The Dragontree plans to celebrate this milestone by offering free food, beverages, and mini treatments to PDX staff on February 23rd from 12:30- 3:30pm at the spa, and free massages and product samples for everyone pre-security during the same time, at the Clock Tower in the Oregon Market.
