Haute Healing Oasis is a perfect culmination of Jessica's extensive knowledge of health and fitness with Peter's business skills and vision. Their goal was to create an environment that caters to people's health and wellness while being pampered in a luxurious spa setting. They were recently interviewed and said "Of course we want our guests to rave about the treatment, but we want them to gush about the staff and the environment as well. We want people to LOVE getting Healthy!"


Our Story

Jessica and I are Stamford natives - born and raised. She is a school teacher at Cloonan Middle School and I am a career firefighter stationed just around the corner from Haute Sauna.  A few years ago I injured my back responding to a fire.  My doctor recommended using a far-infrared sauna to help with the inflammation and pain. After doing our own research, we purchased one for our home. I can honestly say the results have been fantastic. Not only is my back pain diminished, but we both have experienced rejuvenated hair and skin, lower blood pressures, better moods, lower stress levels as well as lots and lots of sweat, a.k.a toxins removed.

Is someone who genuinely cares about people and works hard to balance all her passions in life. Her perspective on wellness is that, whole living includes that of the Mind, Body and Spirit, and is to be experienced in unison with others. She enjoys giving back to the community, and prioritizes self-care so that she can give her best self to those around her. Susie brings to Haute Sauna ten years of corporate marketing and event experience coupled with over ten years of restaurant service experience. Susie is hard working, organized, thinks outside the box, and always sees the big picture. When she isn't helping others or working to get the job done, she is taking a break from the days 'to do's' and is outside taking a walk with her dog, or discovering a new craft beer.
