Since we opened our doors in April 2015 you’ve known us to be full of fun and wise with wellness tips. Most importantly though, you know us as regular humans who drink milkshakes, swear and also mediate, and who have just as much real life to handle as anyone else. As wellness people who also happen to be business people, you’d think we might be exempt from stress and tough decisions because we can be … Read More

This week’s post brought to you by the letter “C”.

For champagne. Now that we are officially in May we can claim that we have completely completed our first full year in business at Third Space Wellness. Amongst all of the things we have learned, one additional thing is that celebration is key! Hence, champagne. Here is us last year (with the husbands), celebrating our opening: Here is us all this year, celebrating our first anniversary (a little older, wiser and hopefully more gorgeous): Turns … Read More

What IS health?

He saw health not as something defined statistically or mechanistically. Rather, he saw health as the ability to adapt to one’s environment. Health is not a fixed entity. It varies for every individual, depending on their circumstances. This is an excerpt from an editorial on defining health. We opened Third Space Wellness as a place where the community could come together and support one another in living a lifestyle that promotes wellbeing for each unique … Read More

SEVEN excellent reasons to join the TSW Silver Spring Running Club

Here are seven seriously excellent reasons to join the TSW Silver Spring Running Club or #SSRunClub for short: Because misery loves company.

Wellness + Community in a bar?! You bet.

Think a bar, wellness and community don’t go together? Think again. On January 24th, we joined forces with Denizens Brewing Co. in Downtown Silver Spring to host a Community Wellness Open House. We knew it might sound strange to some to host a wellness-themed event at a bar. And on a cold, wet Saturday afternoon too? Forget it. We expected most people would stay at home to avoid the wintry mess outside. What happened instead … Read More

Tis a gift to receive

Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays of the year. It’s a time where we take a moment to reconnect with loved ones, rest, give thanks, and give gifts of love. I am especially thankful for this holiday season because it comes at the end of a year filled with both joys and trials including the loss of a long time larger-than-life family friend to ALS.
