The space encourages relaxation from the time a guest steps through the 9-foot-tall wooden doors. The interior has a coastal, beachy feel with a palette of soft blues and creamy neutrals. Dreamy seascapes decorate the walls, while driftwood centerpieces on coffee tables complement chairs and loungers. Seaweed has long been a healing treatment for skin repair. To combat signs of aging, Woodhouse exclusively offers the VOYA organic skincare line, made from hand-harvested seaweed from Ireland. VOYA is used in the Woodhouse Signature Minkyti facial, where freshly harvested seaweed is placed on the face over a warm seaweed poultice mask. Other must-try services include the Lavender and Seaweed Pedicure, The Organic Seaweed Leaf Wrap, and the ultra-indulgent Lazy Days Renewal Ritual.

Reading glasses are placed next to the loungers, and jewelry dishes and charging outlets are in every locker. They have a lovely café menu and extensive wine/ champagne/beer selection as well. Powell says that her clients come in for many reasons—to grieve, to celebrate or just to get away. "People bring us their most intimate moments," she says. "We want to honor their trust by offering unrivaled service." Powell, the vivacious Ohio native turned Charleston transplant, has big plans for her Woodhouse franchise's future. Currently, she is the regional developer of Woodhouse South- east (her Charleston fagship is the largest), and she plans to mentor interested future owners to develop 11 more. Come to think of it, maybe Powell herself is the true Wonder Woman within the Woodhouse walls. 2
