Project Description

Watershed will be the first communal bath and spa combination in the Twin Cities, offering the best components of ritual-based bathing, healing, and restorative practices, along with spa treatments and carefully chosen green beauty retail options. We invite you to help us make Watershed a reality as we work toward completing the build-out of this innovative oasis in Northeast Minneapolis. We cannot wait to welcome you to this unique and truly special place! 

“I believe that every body should have the opportunity to heal and feel rejuvenated through the bathing ritual.”

           -Nell Rueckl, Founder

What is Watershed? Over 10 years in the making, Watershed is the culmination of the dream of founder, spa practitioner, entrepreneur, and thought leader Nell Rueckl. Nell brings over 25 years of spa knowledge and know-how to this project, from her time at the Horst Aveda Spa, at Kabuki Springs in San Francisco, and from her experience successfully founding and running two Spot Spa locations in the Twin Cities. Watershed will provide respectful, safe, clean, ritual-based healing services that support each individual through communal bathing.

What Watershed offers: 

Watershed offers a contemporary take on the classic bathing ritual. By honoring and combining many cultural traditions of bathing, Watershed provides the best elements of the quintessential communal bathing experience. 

  • The baths follow a ritual-based healing practice that includes soaking in a salt pool to calm your senses, a cold plunge, a steam, an infrared sauna, and access to a community lounge to relax and meditate. Bathers go at their own pace and rest and repeat as desired. 
  • Watershed offers a complete array of spa services, including massage, facials, acupuncture and cupping, integrative healing modalities, yoni steam, waxing, and vibrational sound therapy. Each practitioner is trained in multiple modalities to meet clients’ holistic wellness goals. 
  • Green skincare and beauty: Watershed carries several lines of clean skincare and carefully selected green beauty products to match each guest’s individual needs.

Our goal: We need to raise $50,000 through contributions, rewards, and memberships to complete the build-out of the Watershed space in the singular Soap Factory building in Northeast Minneapolis.

Why crowdfunding? Watershed is designed for the community, and we need community support to bring Watershed to life in a way that fits our values and vision.
