The Richmond Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sunday, Jan. 22, to welcome the Little Buddha Lounge, an oxygen bar and salt tavern geared towards holistic healing therapies.
The community is invited to wear all black (requested, not mandatory) to the event set for 3 p.m. at Little Buddha Lounge, located at 522 23rd St., Suite 2 (near Barrett Avenue). Food and music will follow the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Services for the oxygen bar will be available for purchase while the salt room remains under construction, according to the Chamber.
The Little Buddha Lounge will provide services not limited to but including oxygen therapy, aromatherapy, chromotherapy, and sound therapy. Energetic healing sessions such as Reiki and Vortex (optional) are offered in its salt tavern, amongst various healing workshops, classes, and therapies, a fully equipped oxygen bar, and salt room therapy sessions.
Owner Eisha Coutee has been a holistic healer for more than two decades. She studied the link between ailing mental/emotional health and chronic diseases and took interest in alternative and holistic ways to heal people dealing with both, and also to prevent ailments. The pandemic has increased the need for such interventions, she said.
“Our bodies are only speaking our minds,” Coutee said.
Coutee says Little Buddha Lounge is an expansion on the services she’s been providing, but with the capacity to provide a wide variety of therapies under a single roof to multi-task on healing.
