I visited Kaffee’s Garden Spa this week in anticipation of “Spatober” coming to the Palm Beaches in October. Spas throughout the area will be offering fantastic packages and deals for the month.
For more info visit:
Located just off Southern and US1 the spa is quiet and inviting with a small waiting area lit with a glowing salt crystal. Hot teas and water are available while you rest. The staff is warm and engaging and has put together the perfect blend of pampering for their October deal.

Discover Spa and Wellness: Start your spa and wellness experience with a 45-minute massage using warm Himalayan salt stones in our serene and beautiful Salt Room while inhaling the healing benefits of dry salt therapy. Next receive an expert manicure in the Garden Salon. Guests have the option to add a 50-minute facial treatment, which includes a skin analysis, deep cleanse, light exfoliation, essential oil infused facial compresses, mask and rehydration. Gratuity included. The spa will donate 5 percent of each service to charity.
Cost: $225 (massage, manicure and facial) or $140 (massage and manicure)

I started off my visit with a massage by Stacy. The massage room is beautiful with a backlit Himalayan pink salt wall and warming salt rocks. As the lights dim the glow of the wall is tranquil and relaxing. A state of the art Halogenerator produces a micronized aerosol of purified salt mist that flows into the room providing health benefits to the respiratory system and skin. The room features 2 tables for a couples massage option. Stacy is a fantastic therapist with strong hands and a lovely personality. She used the hot salt rocks during my massage and it was delightful.

My next stop was a manicure with Samantha in the Garden Salon. They offer a variety of colors with lines like Essie, Zoya and Duri. There were also spa pedicure chairs and a hairstylist for those looking for the head to toe experience. Samantha has been in the industry for decades, clearly loves her job and takes great pride in her work.

My final treatment was a facial with Kaffee, the owner. She uses a variety of products including Circadia, Jurlique, Dermalogica and Aromandina essential oils. I enjoyed chatting with her about the history of the spa while she worked wonders on my skin.
Kaffee began her career in California before building a client base in Palm Beach. She made the move across the bridge from the island about 20 years ago. Taking over the spa on her own she grew the business from the days of having to lock the front door while she was in a service to taking over the entire building and having a team of stylists, technicians and therapists.

While the spa has a quaint, homey feel she is definitely on the cutting edge when it comes to products, techniques and offerings. She even developed an aloe hydrating fluid that is to die for and available for purchase in her shop (look for the blue bottle).
I loved discovering this gem in Palm Beach County and look forward to future visits – especially to the beautiful salt massage room! In the meantime, I have my trusty blue bottle to keep my skin glowing.
Book your Spatober visit today.

Our Relaxation Room just got more Relaxing!

                                                 Just in time for Valentine’s Giving. 

                                    Take Relaxing to a New Level at Kaffee’s Garden  Spa 

              Discover A.R.T. on the comfortable lounger in our Relaxation Room

                               What is Acoustic Resonance Technology (A.R.T.)?

Acoustic Resonance Technology creates an environment for the body and mind to be able to experience the benefits of sound healing in a more integrative way. Feeling the music you hear provides an opportunity to come into harmony physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and environmentally through stimulating all our senses. This entrainment and alignment of our mind and body can expand our awareness. When we begin to listen and feel the music we naturally relax into the harmonic flow.

  • a•cous•tic (-kstk); adj. also a•cous•ti•cal (-st-kl): Of or relating to sound, the sense of hearing, or the science of sound. Designed to carry sound.
  • Resonance comes from the Latin verb resonare, meaning to “return to sound”. In physics, “the response of an object or a system that vibrates in step with an externally applied vibration.”

The brain sends and receives messages from the rest of the body constantly. Our brains and all the systems of our body are in a communication dance. The brain is constantly receiving information from the skin, bones, muscles, nerve cells, our hormones, etc. The stress hormone, simply put, limits the communication and eventually inhibits the functioning of the immune system. Therefore if we stay in a continual state of stress, we reduce our ability to fight disease. When we relax and move into a state of listening, and feeling joy, we stimulate pleasure hormones or endorphins that strengthen the energy dance within us.

Acoustic Resonance Technology helps stimulate the natural relaxed state of body and mind. It “re-minds” us of our natural Harmonic state. Welcome to the brilliance of alternative health care! All you have to do is get comfortable on this ergonomic lounge chair and tune into the music…your body intuitively does the rest.

Book a 10 minute COMPLIMENTARY SESSION before or after your next service at the Spa 


Book a 30 minute REFLEXOLOGY Session and experience A.R.T. complimentary for the entire session……. 30 minute Reflexology Session  $50.00

Prolonging Youthfulness

A–Chair–IMG_5707 (1).jpg


Let’s face it. Ours is a youth oriented culture. We hear the saying “Oh to be young again!”, then look in the mirror and wonder where did those lines and that sagging jawline come from. There is a plethora of information and choices on what has become known as Anti-Aging. But with every breath we take, oxidative stress is aging us. Science has shown that we can slow aging down with a number of approaches. Which includes antioxidants to counter that oxidative stress, the new science of calorie restriction, hormone supplementation, fillers and of course, surgery and chemical peels. While research into some of these types of approaches continues, it is important to remember there is already plenty of research supporting the value of a healthy, balanced diet, physical activity and other   lifestyle choices which help delay or prevent age-related health issues. At Kaffee’s Garden Spa, this approach is referred to as prolonging youthfulness!


In every venue of our Boutique Day Spa we strive to offer treatments to meet this goal. Prolonging youthfulness is exactly what the remarkable SWiCH Treatment from Circadia Skin Care has the ability to do. First let’s discuss Skin Peels, the more well known approach to skin rejuvention. For over 40 years chemical peeling has been practiced to rejuvenate sun damaged skin. Many types of skin peelings exist including chemical, mechanical and thermal (or laser) modalities. The common thread tying these methods together is the ability of the skin to heal itself when damaged. All of these methods produce some degree of tissue destruction, which incites the natural repair process within the skin. Consistent damage to the epidermis, however, may lead to more serious side effects. In a skin that is already overtaxed, the use of these agents creates a greater demand on energy production. As our skin ages the energy production DECREASES, making it harder for the organ of the skin to counter balance these assaults. That is what is so revolutionary about The SWiCH Rejuvenation Treatment, is it now possible to achieve repair of the skin without having to induce tissue damage. The body’s repair systems, including that of the skin, are held in a ready state at all times. Understanding what is needed to trigger that system is the key to the efficacy of the SWiCH™. Any repair system requires a large input of energy. Biologically this is in the form of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. When the active ingredient in the SWiCH solutions penetrate into the skin, the repair mechanism is switched on!  The energy from the ATP is supplied on the cellular level to rejuvenate – just as you flip a light switch to supply electrical energy to a bulb.


 This treatment that forces the skin to repair from the inside out without damage at the surface.   We would like to have you experience the improvements to your skin with the recommended monthly SWiCH Treatment, along with a Circadia prescribed skin care protocol for home care  which gives you a boost to prolonging youthfulness. It might even make you friends with your mirror again!

Doctor Reviews Dry Salt Therapy

emily salt

Dry Salt Therapy is gaining popularity as a result of the many benefits for the Respiratory System and our bodies largest organ, the Skin. We always ask for feedback from our guests who have experienced the therapy with us. The most common answers are an improved ease in breathing, a sense of relaxation and improved sleep. But what are the medical doctors saying about this alterative therapy? The following was written by Pulmonary Specialist Dr Daniel Layish MD.

The word Halotherapy comes from the Greek word “halos” meaning salt. While the potential benefits and therapeutic nature of salt has been known for centuries, it was not until the early 1800’s that the underground salt mines throughout Eastern Europe were noted to benefit various respiratory conditions. As the workers were mining the salt in these climate-enriched chambers, dry salt particles would be inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt was discovered to be super absorbent, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Soon people with various conditions were spending time in these salt mines. In the mid-1900’s the Russians began working on a technology to replicate the dry salt particles in the air and developed the first halogenerator, a device that grinds pure sodium chloride into precise micron sized particles and disperses the dry salt into a climate controlled room or chamber. This was the start of modern Halotherapy, which has been utilized for several decades throughout Eastern Europe and has begun to expand into many other countries including the United States and Canada. The small particle size is felt to be important to allow penetration deep into the lungs, since larger particles will simply be deposited in the nose, throat or large airways. The air in a halotherapy chamber is also filtered to remove contaminants and the temperature and humidity are well controlled.

As a pulmonologist, I initially became familiar with halotherapy through my care of individuals with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder characterized by dehydration of the respiratory epithelial surface, resulting in impaired mucociliary clearance. In this disorder, thick tenacious secretions obstruct the lower airway and sinuses and provide an environment for chronic infection. Nebulized hypertonic saline has been shown (in well done randomized clinical trials) to improve pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms as well as reduce pulmonary exacerbation rate in individuals with cystic fibrosis. This may be referred to as “wet” salt therapy as opposed to halotherapy which is “dry” salt therapy. Nebulized hypertonic saline can sometimes cause bronchospasm, and not all patients can tolerate this therapy even when premedicated with a bronchodilator. In cystic fibrosis, halotherapy has some theoretical advantages over nebulized hypertonic saline. The patient enters a room to receive the halotherapy typically in a 45-minute session. The prolonged duration of therapy appears to be associated with a much lower incidence of bronchospasm then is seen in the setting of nebulized hypertonic saline. In addition, in the halotherapy mode of administration the salt particles are delivered to both the sinuses and the lower respiratory tract. After seeing anecdotal benefit in our patients with cystic fibrosis, we performed a clinical study, which confirmed that this therapy was well tolerated and the patients derived symptomatic benefit in terms of their sinus complaints. Other studies are planned to study this therapy further in individuals with cystic fibrosis.

The fundamental defect in cystic fibrosis is related to chloride transport and therefore there is a strong rationale for halotherapy in this particular disease. Anecdotally, I have seen patients with other respiratory diseases derive significant benefit from Halotherapy including bronchiectasis, chronic bronchitis, chronic sinusitis and allergic rhinitis. The hypothesis is that Halotherapy may help with respiratory illnesses by liquefaction of airway secretions thereby enhancing expectoration. There seems to be very little risk to this therapy other than the financial and time investment. There is certainly a theoretical basis for the possible benefit of halotherapy, given the known antiinflammatory and anti-infective properties of salt. Currently, halotherapy is not covered by medical insurance companies. However, it is hoped that this may change as research is planned to try to prove the benefits that many patients have reported. Many halotherapy institutions offer a monthly pass that can make therapy more affordable than purchasing individual sessions. There is also an effort to develop systems that can deliver halotherapy in the home setting, avoiding the need to travel to a salt room. This is important since many people do not live close to a halotherapy center. It is worth noting that many patients have also noticed benefits in non-respiratory conditions, particularly dermatalogic conditions such as acne and psoriasis and research is planned in this area as well.

Reach out on Mother’s Day

Every year we set aside a special day to honor Motherhood. As we prepare to show appreciation for the  women in our lives, whether they are our biological moms, or women who hold a special place in your heart because of the motherly influence they have on us, I wanted to share some powerful thoughts written by Jessica Wolstenholm . Jessica Wolstenholm is an author and freelance writer who blogs about motherhood and life at I was touched by the variety of real situations that she defines in this complex relationship between mother and child. Take a moment to read and process her suggestions. There is a  message here for everyone:


Whether you walk extremely close or there’s a valley of difference between you, reach out to your mother this week.

Whether you see eye to eye or you can’t agree on much of anything, look your mother in the eyes if you can and tell her how special she is.

Whether she’s loved you well or lacked in affection, tell her how much you appreciate her and linger in love through words or embrace.

Whether she’s been your role model or she’s shown you what not to do, tell her how

much you’ve learned from her.

Whether she’s been a near perfect mother or a much less than perfect one, she’s still here and that fact alone leaves so much potential for you both.

Call her, embrace her, surround her with your love whether it comes easy or along with tons of baggage.

Reach out for reconciliation if you are estranged.

Reach out in compromise if you are indifferent.

Reach out with time and attention if you are busy.

Reach out with affection if you are reserved.

Reach out with generous love even if you already do it regularly.

Here is to finding a meaningful way to celebrate  Mother’s Day. We invite you to “reach out” by having a day together at Kaffee’s Garden Spa. A perfect way to say I love you, Mom!

Finding ME Time


Making more ME time. This is one of the goals we have for 2016. Taking time to take care of ourselves. One way is to spend some quite time and we can’t think of a better place to be quite and relax other than a bubble bath.

We are also trying to make sure that we are taking care of our bodies. Rather than using a store bought bubble bath, we have found that making our own ensures that we know what is coming in contact with our skin. We like the smell of honey and vanilla so we found this recipe that we will have to try.


½ cup light almond oil

¼ cup honey

½ cup mild liquid hand or body soap (Dr. Bronner’s is a suggestion)

1 egg white1

tablespoon vanilla extract

Keep the remaining in the refrigerator until your next soak.


Pedicures are a top pick for me time. KAFFEE’S GARDEN SPA has  added a new dimension to their pedicure experience with the choice of 3 new foot soaks from Farmhouse Fresh.There are two salt with botanical blends and a milk bath soak to choose from. They all have softening and moisturizing benefits but most importantly the aromas are so exquisite. Their pedicure room is an aromatic delight. Heavenly! We are booking an appointment today.


Me time. We need it. It keeps our motor running for this busy time of year. Make time for yourself, it’s important.

10 Reasons to have a Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp in Every Room

Himalayan Salt Lamps are so beautiful and bring something special to the room but you may not have realized the health benefits they provide!

Please come have a look at the selection of Himalayan Lamps and cooking plates and energy globes we have at the Spa.

10 Reasons to have a Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp in Every Room

Before we dive into the health benefits of using Himalayan pink salt lamps in your home, it may be helpful to first have a brief chemistry lesson:

All matter (the human body, air, water, etc) is made up of molecules which are made up of atoms which are made up of three types of particles: protons (positive charge), electrons (negative charge), and neutrons (no charge). Electrons orbit their molecules like planets revolve around a star. Occasionally an electron flies off and when it does, it leaves behind a positively-charged ion whose sole purpose in life becomes to fill the void left by its little lost electron. In other words: it wants to steal a replacement electron from another molecule. Due to differences in molecular structure (number of electrons in the outermost orbit, strength and structure of electron bonds, etc) some materials lose electrons much more easily than others.

With this basic understanding of the behavioWP_20150903_001rs of positive and negative ions fresh in your mind, let’s take a look at the top 10 benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps.

  1. Cleanse & Deodorize the Air

Probably the most well-known benefit – and why the majority of people use them – is due to their incredible power to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants from the air. “But how do they do this,” you ask?  “It’s just a big chunk of salt with a light bulb inside, right?”

Well yes, but no.  There’s much more to it than that.

Himalayan pink salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. As the HPS lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.

  1. Reduce Allergy & Asthma Symptoms

Because HPS lamps remove microscopic particles of dust, pet dander, mold, mildew and the like from the surrounding air, placing a lamp or two in the rooms where you spend the most time can seriously cut back on allergy symptoms. Even people who suffer from asthma should notice a big difference after a week or two.

  1. Eases Coughing

When the Himalayan pink salt lamp heats up and begins its hydroscopic cycling of airborne particles, it also changes the charge of the molecules which are released. (Remember our chemistry lesson?) The majority of homes are filled with positively charged ions which aren’t particularly good for a person’s health. The positive ions are created by a number of things, but the primary source for most of us is from our electronics.

One of the health detriments of breathing lots of positive ions in the air is that the cilia (microscopic hairs) which line the trachea (aka: windpipe) become sluggish and don’t work as well to keep contaminants out of our lungs. As a Himalayan pink salt lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, it also takes positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it also expels negative ions which have the opposite effect on our airways – to keep your lungs clear.

What all this means in a nut shell: Besides removing contaminants from the air, Himalayan pink salt lamps also help your body to filter air more efficiently so any foreign particles you do happen to breathe won’t make it into your lungs.

  1. Increase Energy Levels

Taking a drive through the countryside with the windows down, spending time at the beach, camping in the mountains, or simply taking a shower first thing in the morning are all things that many people find invigorating. It’s not a coincidence that these are all activities which expose us to increased concentrations of negative ions such as those generated by Himalayan salt lamps. The fact is, positive ions sap our bodies of energy. Unfortunately, it’s all too common for us to try to diagnose the problem as something else entirely.

If you constantly feel tired and don’t know why, try keeping a Himalayan salt lamp in the room or rooms where you spend the most time. After about a week, you should notice a difference.

  1. Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation

Nowadays, most of us are living in a metaphorical ocean of electromagnetic (EM) radiation which flows from our electronics (ie: television, computer, cell phone, tablet, appliances, stereo, etc). While they may be invisible, the long-term effects of EM exposure can be quite serious. Constant exposure to EM radiation is known to increase stress levels, cause chronic fatigue, and decrease the body’s immune response, among other things.

As they emit negative ions into the air, Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize electromagnetic radiation. Keep one next to the computer, television, and any other electrical devices which you use frequently to reduce the potential danger to you and your family.

  1. Better Sleep

Another side effect which results from over-exposure to positive ions in the air is that it robs you of quality sleep. This happens because those positively-charged particles can actually reduce blood and oxygen supply to the brain resulting in irregular sleep patterns. Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, thus they can help to reverse this problem. Keep one or two around your bedroom to improve the air quality so you can get a better night’s sleep.

Remember, even if you’re like me and you can’t sleep unless the room is totally dark, you can always turn the lamp off at bedtime. Just leave it on for the rest of the day so it can do its work while you’re awake. People in humid climates should be aware that HPS lamps tend to weep when the salt becomes cool. You’ll definitely want to protect surfaces by placing a saucer underneath and be sure to follow the instructions for use and care which should be included with your lamp!

  1. Improve Mood & Concentration

Himalayan pink salt lamps are a great way to naturally enhance your mood or to help you relax and unwind at the end of the day. At the same time and on the opposite side of the coin, HPS lamps are great for improving concentration. Again, this is due to the effect of the negative ions on your body, improving blood and oxygen supply to the brain and other organs, as well as providing a boost of serotonin – the neurotransmitter which makes us (literally) feel happy.

  1. Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder

In addition to generating negative ions which improve mood and energy levels, the soft, natural light given off by a Himalayan pink salt lamp is close enough to the warm glow of sunshine that they can even be used to relieve the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. This year when the days get shorter, fight back the lethargy by surrounding yourself with a few HPS lamps set on timers.

  1. Reduce Static Electricity in the Air

While not a “health benefit” at first glance, static is pesky stuff. It causes stress, embarrassment, and frustration. Static zaps you when you least expect it, as you’re reaching for a door handle, kissing your husband or wife before bed, or trying to pet your dog or cat. Static can give you a bad hair day, make it impossible to clean crumbs or coffee grounds off of the kitchen counter, and even cause you to accidentally go to work with a sock stuck to the back of your shirt…

(Okay, so that last one may have been a little over-the-top.) The point is, static electricity can be a huge pain and Himalayan pink salt lamps are a natural way to neutralize the airborne ionized particles which cause it)

  1. Environmentally-Friendly Light Source

Last, but not least: Himalayan pink salt lamps are environmentally friendly. While only an estimate, the reserves from which HPS is mined measure somewhere between 80 and 600 million tons and is projected to last for at least another 350 years at the current extraction rate. The base of an HPS lamp is generally carved from a sustainable wood such as neem. Some lamps use a low-wattage bulb which consumes very little energy while others are powered by a lit candle.
