Greetings Massage Therapists, Friends, and Family
Breitenbush Hot Springs has been a magical highlight of the Northwest massage community for over a quarter century, and we’d love to have you join us this year.
Breitenbush is beautiful in July; the days are long and warm, and the water’s running high.
Your friends and family are absolutely welcome to join the retreat, and there will be several events open to everyone. We hope to see you there!
Breitenbush Hot Springs is a forest retreat with a historic lodge, cozy cabins, several hot pools (and a cold plunge), a steam house, a labyrinth, riverside swimming, and many inviting gathering spaces.
Electricity is generated from the Breitenbush River. The retreat is off the grid and is surrounded by Mt. Hood National Forest with easy access to hiking trails from the grounds.
Breitenbush is seven miles downstream from a glaciated volcano in a glacial flood plain that drains nearly a hundred square miles of rainforest. This is the largest thermal-spring area in the Oregon Cascades.
Every single geological condition known to produce hot springs converges here. The hot water you soak in at Breitenbush existed as glaciers on Mt. Jefferson 60,000 years ago and has not seen daylight until now.
To attend the retreat, register for lodging.
Lodging includes three delicious organic meals per day (dinner on your first day through lunch on your last day), use of all the hydrotherapy facilities, and the activities listed as “FREE.”
Cabins are geothermally heated and have two to four beds. Tent options are available. There is a two-night minimum stay.
