Magnifying Your 'Me Time'
Our Worldwide Wellness Program Partners —
Uplifting People...and the Planet!
Repairing the World Takes A Village -
And It's All Hands On Deck!
Aquarius Wellness, true to its mission of being, “…in service to a happier, healthier, more peaceful planet, one person…and tree at a time!”, has chosen to partner with a number of nonprofits serving a variety of causes, both nationally and internationally. As we provide healing massage services in the comfort of our St. Louis wellness center, we are committed to amplifying the impact we can have in a world that is literally crying out for wellness! For this reason, we donate $1 for each and every product and spa service that we sell. We divide this money among five different charities, which we rotate on a monthly basis.
On a global level, we have partnered with three outstanding charities you can truly feel good about supporting through your own wellness commitment: One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit environmental charity, which, for every $1 that’s donated to them, plants one tree in designated critical habitats around the world. This is one of the single greatest initiatives humanity can engage in for the mitigation of climate change!
Our day spa also partners with Resurge International, a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization that inspires, trains, funds, and scales reconstructive surgical teams in low-income countries to provide free life-changing care to patients with the greatest need.
And thirdly, Amnesty International is another of our charity partners with a global mission to advocate for effective and principled humanitarian rights for both individuals and whole populations whose human rights are being violated. They seek to right injustices and inequality everywhere through research, lobbying, advocacy, education campaigns, fund raising, and direct action.
On a local/national level, we have partnered with two very important organizations that reflect our increasingly stark awareness of the chronic racial and social injustice issues plaguing our nation and the world: the St. Louis Area Foodbank, which provides free meals to the hungry in the St. Louis metropolitan area, and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., America’s premier legal organization that has fought for racial justice for the past 75 years! The historic protests of late have highlighted the need for all of us to take a stand on issues of racial inequality, which have persisted for far too long in a nation that rightly guarantees, “Equal Justice for All”!

Shop Locally — Act Globally
Together, let us collectively contribute to the dawn of a new age…the age of Conscious Capitalism…where Mother Earth is finally given the love and respect she is due, where all her children are able to receive the healthcare to which they are entitled, and where none of her beloved children shall go to bed hungry. And finally, an Age where Justice Prevails…Above All...the Age of Aquarius!
Some may call it just a pipe dream, the illusory longings of the ‘60s psychedelic drug culture. Perhaps, but it also represents the exceedingly beautiful vision of a world, as expressed in the ’60s classic song “Aquarius”, that I both long for, and will strive to will into existence!

Paying it Forward
St. Louis is where our heart is, but we consider this entire planet our home. Our small contributions to these five noble charities will hopefully grow substantially over time as we expand Aquarius Wellness and exponentially increase our satisfied clientele, supported through our clients’ commitment to their own wellness.
Together, we can have a real impact on our planet and the billions of people living on it. We are currently in the midst of a climate crisis for which tree planting has been identified as one of the single greatest solutions, and together we can also provide relief and hope to the millions of people who are suffering due to lack of access to quality medical care, chronic hunger, and the ravages of racial, social and human rights injustices.
As a client, you can take great satisfaction in knowing that for each and every product or service you purchase from us, $1 will be donated and divided among these five worthy causes. And rest assured that by investing in your own wellness, you are investing in a greater wellness for the people, and the planet, in desperate need of it!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has! ”

One Tree Planted is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on planting trees around the world. For every $1 donated, the organization plants a tree in a designated, critical habitat that urgently needs more trees. No matter where you live, you can get involved and help build a better world, one tree at a time.
Our day spa also partners with Resurge International, a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization that inspires, trains, funds, and scales reconstructive surgical teams in low-income countries to provide free life-changing care to patients with the greatest need across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The St. Louis Foodbank builds stronger communities by empowering people with food and hope. Join us in supporting their mission to create a stronger, healthier bi-state region where no one goes to bed hungry.
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggles and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments. LDF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people in over 150 countries, regions and territories who campaign for internationally recognized human rights to be respected and protected for everyone.
