In a converted Easey Street warehouse, Mary Minas and Freya Berwick have delivered Collingwood Sense of Self, a contemporary wellness space that welcomes all genders, promotes ancient wisdom and boasts modern design. Whether you're someone who likes to soak in communal baths, relax into a massage or simply nurture the relationship with your body, Sense of Self is the spot for you.

Encouraging you to come as you are and take what you need, this wellness space provides its clients with an opportunity to feel good via an unpretentious offering that's dedicated to connection, inclusivity and restoration. Minas spent five months visiting the bathhouses of Europe, Africa and Japan, while botanist-turned-hotelier Berwick spent plenty of time sweating in Scandinavian saunas during her three years in Norway. So, expect influences pulled from all four locations here — and plenty of plants.

The facilities at the bathhouse include a Finnish-style sauna at a hot 80 degrees, a large 39-degree mineral bath and a cold plunge pool. Passes give you access to all the facilities, and start at $59 for two hours. Bathing on the weekend will set you back $69 for two hours, or you can get discounted multi-packs from $169 for three.

Upstairs at the massage and mindfulness studio, you'll find a menu of body treatments for relaxation, remediation and pregnancy, backed by a soothing lounge area where naps are not just welcomed, but encouraged.

Find Sense of Self at 30–32 Easey Street, Collingwood. The bathhouse is open from 7am–9.30pm Tuesday–Friday and 8am–8.30pm Saturday–Sunday.
