About Poplar Creek Spa

We specialize in customizing your spa experience with our wide array of services designed to relax and rejuvenate you. All of the products used in our spa services are handcrafted in-house, using all-natural and organic ingredients. Most are prepared just for you the day of your appointment, making them easily customized to meet your individual needs and preferences.

Most of our team of massage therapists has at least six years of experience in a variety of settings in both the United States and Europe: day spas, salons, chiropractor clinics, medical retreats, and health centers. Likewise our aestheticians have demonstratied skill and expertise in skin care, waxing, and various other specialized aesthetics services. Our acupuncturist comes highly trained from the Seattle Institute of Chinese Medicine.

We view a spa as a reset button. Indulgent? Not really. Self-care is a constructive stress management technique; an integral part of living a balanced, healthy lifestyle; and an essential element in being able to care for others in your charge.  As the old saying goes, you cannot pour from an empty vessel. We aim to invite calm into the lives of each of our guests so that they may be better able to extend peace and kindness to those around them. Whether you choose a massage, facial, acupuncture, or other spa service, we know you’ll leave the spa feeling better prepared to face the rest of your day.

Though we now operate out of a strip mall on busy Main Street in Ooltewah, our first location was surrounded by poplar trees with a creek running through the property. Our name pays homage to that humble beginning, as well as to our reverence for nature. We strive to conduct business in such a way as to minimize our ecological footprint.

Lauren's interest in massage therapy began when both her parents, who are in the medical field, encouraged her to pursue a career in that field as well. She looked into the options and decided massage therapy was just the right fit. Lauren very much enjoys helping others relax and improve their health, and she has a deep appreciation for massage therapy.
