Welcome to Common Ground Wellness Cooperative
Our bathhouse features a large outdoor hot soaking pool with therapy jets and a dry cedar sauna. We are an all genders and clothing-optional wellness center that offers a safe, non-sexual space to relax and rejuvenate the spirit. We also offer men-only/women-only hours during the week, plus a monthly trans and gender queer night.
Our practitioners offer a wide range of sessions including massage, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, counseling, and chiropractic care. We provide a unique healing service called a Massage Sandwich™; which combines a visit with one of our practitioners with time in the bathhouse.

Ecological Information about CGWC
The chlorine that our salt cells generate is sodium chloride. Sodium Chloride is non-stabilized chlorine, which is the kind of chlorine that works quickly, dissipates once it is used, and then turns back into salt and is recycled through the salt cell to become chloride again.
Some of the other benefits to sodium chloride are that the well-known chlorine smell is almost imperceptible and the solution leaves the skin feeling soft and not irritated. By eliminating the need for the harsh chemicals, you eliminate the source of the irritation that plagues swimmers in most pools.
Reclaimed materials were used in the construction of areas of the wellness cooperative including some benches, changing area and deck boards. CGWC also retrofitted existing building and has plans to build an expanded ecologically sound wellness cooperative by converting the current parking lot and alternative energy sources over the next 3-5 years.
CGWC encourages alternative transportation – free visit for the 11th visit by alternative transportation (bike, walk, rollerskate, magic carpet, etc…) Ask for a soak/sauna alternative transportation card during your next visit to CGWC.
