A newspaper ad for Watercourse Way from 30-some-odd years ago features a family of four enjoying the spa in room Six Dragonflies — father, mother and twin boys. The boys are me and my brother, smiling, enjoying the moment with our parents. My brother Nathan took his first dip in the cold plunge that day (it took me several more years to gather the courage to test the icy water).
Watercourse Way has been special to my family for the better part of three decades, essentially since its doors first opened in 1980. Both Nathan and I now work at Watercourse in various capacities. We enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and helping clients seek a respite from their busy lives. In walking through the halls now, I still reflect on those early days, when Watercourse Way was younger than we were. And while the business has evolved in a beautiful way, that zen spirit is still here. In fact, it has only grown stronger.
Many of you reading this know about stress and tension only too well. You feel it at work, at home, in the car. If you have the will to relax, we will show you the Way. It lives at 165 Channing Avenue, where bamboo sentinels cast a cool shadow on the sidewalk. My brother and I are proud to be a part of the Watercourse family, and when you come to visit, we would love to help make your experience the very best it can be. Just look for the smiling twins.
