Lindsay Recommends

Wellness

Cocoon Bodywork
Massage Therapist
Joanne is a fantastic massage therapist.
Earth Wind Fire
Yoga
Jaime, Madzy and Alice (the owners) are three of the best yoga teachers I've ever learned from. The studio itself is full of light, and the practice is always a satisfying and intense workout.
Heather Sorenson
Personal Trainer
Heather makes you work, really work. No nonsense and kicks your booty, but also really upbeat and encouraging, too. She sees clients in her home gym in Wedgwood.
Kate's Day Spa
Massage Therapist
Kate and Heather are both extraordinarily skilled massage therapists who I've seen for 10 years. Feels less like a polished day spa than like a friend's living room, but the massages are as good as they get. You can also get a steam bath before or after your massage, which is dreamy
Ladywell's Vitality Spa & Sauna
Spa
This is a female only spa that has 2 hot pools, a cold pool, 2 saunas, a steam bath and cold plunge. The idea is you rotate between all these pools at your leisure and for as long as you want. Sometimes I get the salt scrub, though often I just go there to sit in the hot tub and read. I've heard their massages are great though never tried one. It's about $30 for a day pass to just hang out in the pools, so feels like a bargain to me, especially if you have a half day to hang out. It's less large and loud than the Korean day spas I've tried in Lynnwood, so a little more luxurious.
LifeFloat
Spa
I love "floating" and Life Float is tied for my favorite (with Oasis Float in Greenwood). Some float places have small claustrophobic "coffins" you climb into, which me no like. Life Float and Oasis Float have very large float areas (Life Float's is actually a pool in a room, and Oasis Float has giant tanks). Sometimes this is the only way to quiet my brain. It's so therapeutic.
Maven Yoga
Yoga
A hole in the wall entrance belies the gem of a studio with great heated vinyasa yoga. They also have showers, so you can go on your way to something else.
Modo Yoga Seattle
Yoga
I really like this studio. The type of yoga is a little different from the vinyasa I usually do. Although it is a heated yoga studio, you hold the poses a few counts, and they seem to have more standard sequences. If you don't like similar sequences from one yoga day to the next, you won't like this. If you like that consistent-ness, you will like this. It is still a vigorous, I-just-got-a-good-workout practice. Moreover, there is a great vibe. The space itself is beautiful and spread out, with nice showers and dressing area, a living room, a very large studio, and friendly owners. They're right next to the Greenlake PCC (the one near Starbucks, not the one on Aurora), with underground or street parking.
Oasis Float
Spa
Ritual House
Yoga
Just a lovely studio

Artax Painting
House Painter
Michael has painted many interior rooms in my home and business, and he's always done an excellent job. Since he's just one person, he isn't as fast as a team going all at once, but he still is faster than other painters I've hired. Mostly I use him because he's a perfectionist and does such good work. I know he does exterior painting too, though I've never hired him for this.
Ballard Electric Co
Electrician
Palmer Residential
General Contractor
Did a superb job on our basement remodel - gorgeous attention to detail on the actual remodel, and gorgeous management of me, their rather fastidious client. I've been through painful remodels and this was shockingly unpainful. They were not inexpensive, but I also felt like it was fair.
Ridwell
Recycling Services
So, Ridwell is awesome. Since our municipal garbage and recycling systems won't dispose of a lot of stuff you need to get rid of -- batteries, lightbulbs, and most of all, plastic film -- I used to keep that stuff stashed up until finally we'd have to spend a Saturday bringing it to the appropriate places. But Ridwell comes and picks it up for you, disposes of it responsibly, and is really priced. They also, as a bonus, pick up something else each month that you may need to dispose of, such as used kids gear that you've been meaning to bring to the Goodwill. They make sure it gets re-used responsibly. What's more, the price is really reasonable (less than municipal garbage costs us, by my calculation). So they combine giving me back my Saturday with making me feel a little bit less bad about all our waste. And easy on the wallet. HIGHLY recommend.
Sara Eizen
Interior Designer
Sara is friendly and easygoing, and is particularly good at helping small spaces feel open and organized.
Seriously Happy Homes
Interior Designer
Rebecca West not only has impeccable taste that will prevent you from making expensive errors in design and decor, but she is very easy to work with. She did the design for our basement remodel, from drawing to picking out furniture, and everything about it was easy. She's also helped me reupholster furniture and delights in small jobs like that. Highly recommend.
