The Lodge at Woodloch has tapped its resources to develop and share a Rest+Well Blueprint. It is not a program, not a single class and not a special offering, but a way of life. A Blueprint that includes tips, resources and strategies to help guests find their Rest+Well bliss on their own terms within their own lifestyle.
The Rest+Well Components Include:
Pillow Menu: In addition to the Classic Down Pillow standard on every bed, The Lodge offers an additional 5 pillows as choices for personalized comfort to maximize a restful sleep:
o Hypoallergenic Pillow
o Memory Foam Pillow
o Body Pillow (good for pregnancy and for those with back/hip/knee problems)
o Buckwheat Pillow
New memory foam beds in each guest room.
Temperature Control for personal preference- recommend to sleep in a cool room- 65 degrees is the best temperature for a good night’s rest
Rest+Well Lifestyle Tip: Keeping the bedroom and bed as a tool only for sleep will help train the body to go to sleep faster. Try not to read, watch TV or use electronic devices while in bed. Create a Rest+Well haven at home.

Naturopath Private Consultation with Nathaniel Whitmore: $150 per 50-minute session
Rest+Well Lifestyle Tip: Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone controlled by light exposure that helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle. The brain secretes more Melatonin in the evening (dark) to encourage sleep and less during the day (light) to encourage alertness. Spending time outdoors during daylight helps to normalize Melatonin production. Remember to take off sunglasses in the morning to not trick the brain! Note that long days in the office in front of a computer or at home with a TV or electronic device misaligns the light exposure message and Melatonin release.
Seasonal outdoor adventures include kayaking, hiking, biking, nature walks, Nordic walking, stand up paddle boarding, archery, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and more
