Hiatus Spa + Retreat and Aveda Celebrate Earth Month

Hiatus Spa + Retreat and Aveda Celebrate Earth Month

Published: 04/09/2015

Hiatus Spa + Retreat is celebrating Earth Month with Aveda this April with an exclusive print by Austin-based artist Jan Heaton, special treatments at the spa, and a fundraising raffle featuring over $5,000 in spa product and treatment giveaways. Each of these specials will support the Hiatus Earth Month Fund and Hiatus’ $10,000 fundraising goal benefitting regional nonprofits and the Global Greengrants Fund to underwrite clean water initiatives around the globe.

This April, Hiatus is excited to offer the Flow Earth Month print, a limited edition signed and numbered print by Austin-based artist Jan Heaton that will be available in the spa. This is a unique opportunity to own a print from Heaton, whose nature-inspired abstract watercolors adorn the walls of Hiatus.  

Flow is a painting from my Quiet series. The series reflects how color in our surrounding environments—particularly nature—influences our personal health and well-being. The image is inspired by the simplistic beauty and healing properties of water,” says Heaton. 

“It is so gratifying to participate in Aveda Earth Month for the eighth year, continuing to impact clean water initiatives in our communities,” said Hiatus Co-Founder Kristin Heaton-Peabody. “This limited edition reproduction is an extension of the serenity that Jan Heaton’s work has helped us create at Hiatus, and for our guests, a unique opportunity to own a limited edition print while making a positive impact on the environment.”

In conjunction with Aveda Earth Month and a 2015 fundraising goal of $6 million, fundraising efforts by Hiatus will benefit regional clean water initiatives through the Gulf Restoration Network ( and Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper ( Hiatus strives to be earth-friendly throughout the year and has made the environment a cornerstone of its business philosophy—from initial build-out to ongoing initiatives such as bottle cap recycling, 100 percent wind-powered energy, VOC-free paint finishes, post-consumer recycled paper printed with soy ink, and no-bottled-water policy.

“Aveda professionals have consistently proven that beauty and environment are inextricably connected, having raised $38 million for global clean water initiatives since 1999.” said Hiatus Co-Founder Sheila Garrison. “As you can imagine, we are delighted to have this unique opportunity to raise funds and awareness with our partner—Aveda—through the gorgeous artwork of Austin artist Jan Heaton." 

In addition to the exclusive print, Hiatus wants guests to Spa for the Earth all month long by offering all essential spa services at member pricing (priced at $69) when guests mention Earth Month. Hiatus will also donate 10 percent of the discounted spa service price, and any retail purchases, to the Earth Month Fund.

Hiatus will also offer their signature monthly retreat, inspired by Earth Month, Earth’s Embrace. This delectable retreat celebrates Earth’s riches in a luxurious, skin-quenching experience while conserving water in honor of Earth Month. Guests will begin with a gentle dry brush exfoliation to smooth and tone their skin. A blend of melted cocoa and shea butters infused with a comforting blend of Madagascar vanilla, cinnamon, and ylang yang is spread over the guest with warm volcanic stones in a full body massage. As the gentle heat of the stones fade, they are perfectly placed within the layers of a nurturing wrap so the guest will feel cradled in their warm embrace. A reflexology session deepens the relaxation until the guest is awakened with an energizing cool stone facial massage. The eighty-minute service will conclude with a rhum agricole ti punch cocktail, luminous skin, and the knowledge that the service has contributed funds to local clean water initiatives.  

Additionally, Hiatus will host an Earth Month raffle all month featuring over $5,000 in spa products and service giveaways. Purchase tickets in the spa for $5 each, three for $10, or ten for $25. Winners will be announced on May 1. Raffle prizes include the following spa treatments: Perfecting Facial with plumping lip treatment and peel with NuFace Uplifting Eye (80 min.); Thai Fusion Massage, a seamless blend of Thai, Sports, Deep Tissue, and Energy Work (90 min.); April Monthly Retreat—Earth’s Embrace (80 min.); Hiatus Mani-Pedi Retreat (80 min.); and Steamy Glow Massage (90 min.).
