A New Luxury Wellness Retreat and Spa Has Opened in Melbourne's Northeast
Founded by two local osteopaths, Relinque offers a holistic-focused treatment menu, including hot and cold therapy in its state-of-the-art steam and ice room.

Victoria's newest luxury spa destination doesn't require a jaunt down the coast or a road trip all the way out to Daylesford.
In fact, full-body bliss now awaits you just 10 kilometres from the CBD, at Ivanhoe's new urban retreat and spa Relinque.
It's the brainchild of osteopaths Dr Michelle and Dr Adam Wilson, who set out to create a holistic wellness destination specialising in tailored experiences. The space itself is the kind of serene, soothing setting you'll happily escape to for a few hours of indulgence, decked out with modern interiors by Richmond's Studio Tate.
Relinque's treatment offering is built on the founders' decades of osteo experience, carefully tuned to help refocus, rebalance and restore that pandemic-weary body. Guests can choose from four signature 'journeys' or treatment packages, sitting at between 80 and 170 minutes of pampering. In the mix, there are body scrubs, massages, hand and foot treatments, wraps and facial therapies, with individualised combinations also available.
If you're seeking some additional rejuvenation, you can soak up the benefits of hot and cold contrast therapy here in Melbourne's only privately-owned steam and ice room. The gig involves alternating between a steamy 45-degrees and the frosty temperatures of an ice fountain, to take advantage of the practice's healing, regenerative properties.
Products used at the retreat include the full line of organic, botanically-charged products from leading Aussie skincare brand LaGaia, whose experts have personally trained all Relinque staff.
And if you'd like to make this your new one-stop wellness shop, there's also a calendar of regular yoga and pilates classes to come.
