Welcome to Common Ground Wellness Cooperative
Common Ground Wellness Cooperative provides a full spectrum of healing opportunities for mind and body through our bathhouse and various practitioners in the Alberta Arts neighborhood in Portland, Oregon.
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 energy work. We provide a unique healing service called a Massage Sandwich™; which combines a visit with one of our practitioners with time in the bathhouse.
