When Capon’s co-founder, Lou Austin acquired the Capon Spring and adjoining property in 1932, one of his dreams was to create “a spa for the practice of natural healing, using God’s gifts for mind, body and spirit.” The addition of the Spa in 2006 honors this dream.
The Hygeia Bath House and Spa gets its name from Hygeia, the Greek goddess whose “gift” is “the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health”. From the moment you enter the spa and you slowly breathe in the wonderful aromas, you can feel yourself relaxing. Whether you are new to massage or have been enjoying the benefits of these treatments for years, we welcome you to come and let your stress slip away. The friendly and accommodating staff will help you decide just the right healing therapies: maybe you’ll begin with a hot soaking bath of healing Capon water, then a massage to complete the experience. You can add one of our unique facials to the massage…. Or maybe your feet, hands and face need that extra attention and you will decide to schedule a reflexology session.
Be sure to spend some time on the Spa porch swing watching the hummingbirds… many guests have told us that the Spa porch is one of their favorite places at Capon. After spending time at the Spa, we’re sure you will agree that the Hygeia Bath House and Spa enhances the Capon tradition of helping each guest to enjoy, recoup and relax.
We want to make sure Capon guests know – we are here for you when you just need to get away for a day to recoup and relax. Consider a day trip to Capon! Schedule some spa time and maybe a meal. Be sure to allow for some porch sitting time….
