Shanti Rejuvenation Center to reopen June 2

A return to inner peace

Editor’s Note: The following article is part of a continuing series on how Webster City area businesses are faring during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Sanskrit, Shanti means “inner peace,” something everyone could use a little more of in the age of the coronavirus.

And personal health and wellness has never been more important.

Shanti Rejuvenation Center, now located at 914 Willson Avenue in Webster City, is here to help. With an array of health and wellness packages, owner Marty Fortune offers a holistic

approach locally that she feels can be beneficial to everyone.

“Right now is when we all need to make sure we’re as healthy as we can possibly be,” Fortune said. “This rejuvenation wing, we have things to increase your immune system and

increase your mitochondria to help keep you healthy.”

Formerly the Shanti Wellness Day Spa, Fortune transitioned to a rejuvenation center and now offers new services to clients, including an oasis float tank, joow red light therapy, a sauna and acupuncture.

As an aesthetician, Fortune provides facials, a Revitalight skin care system, waxing and micropigmentation.

“I do skin services and a lot of anti-aging services,” Fortune said.

The Shanti Rejuvenation Center offers memberships, as well as packages and single sessions.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Fortune says she’s been forced to push back her reopening date. Governor Kim Reynolds allowed businesses like Fortune’s to open on May 15, but she’s set a target date of June 2 to welcome clients back into her building.

“I wanted to wait and see the numbers,” Fortune said, referring to the COVID-19 cases in the state. “So it’s been a day-by-day looking at the numbers and hoping I’m going to open on June 2. It’s a little scary, but I’ve had people calling for the last two weeks for things like body waxing and micro-needling on their face. That surprised me, but if they feel safe, then we’ll enact what we have to enact.”

In addition to intensified sanitization, Fortune purchased a plastic mask to use during sessions with clients. At the moment, she doesn’t anticipate pulling back any services.

“That could change, but I feel like I’m going to be able to do everything,” she said. “With my plastic shield, I’ll see if I like it and see if I can see through it. If I’m not comfortable with it, we won’t do it.

“We’re going to have a new normal and I’m just going to play it by ear.”
