Soakology foot sanctuary and teahouse is a spa and teahouse like no other. Sit back in extremely comfortable chairs in our teahouse, sip teas from around the world while snacking on light fare. Our spa is a communal, beautiful environment where you can relax alone or with friends and try one of our many hand made foot soaks. Add a foot lower leg massage or a head neck shoulder massage while sipping any of our teahouse offerings.

I have traveled the world, and make a point of visiting spas (or something similar) everywhere I go. And my soak, with a pumice scrub, was the WORST "treatment" I have ever had. This place is the equivalent of sticking your feet in a copper bowl of tea. Which I could easily do in my own home. The "tool" for... More

This is my third review of Soakology in Portland. One of my favorite places to "relax" and unwind. In my last review, I had to compare the new location to the old location up the street (which had a very "old world" feel, and a much more "spa" feel)- and I stand by that review still--the old location was much,...

After a day of walking around the cobblestoned streets in the wrong shoes, I stumbled upon Soakology. It did not take much convincing to get my husband to agree to forgo another museum and get tea and treatments instead. The whole experience was wonderful--we received both foot and shoulder/neck massages. The warm foot soak in large copper tubs was divine... More

This is such a wonderful place. You truly feel like you are going into another world when you walk downstairs into this dimly lit room. Very atmospheric. The soak was absolutely wonderful and the lower leg massage made it even better. The black orange tea was so good that I bought some to go and the Russian tea cookies were... More

Imagine a dimly lit setting. You are sitting in an oversized armchair high off the ground, a warm neck wrap on your shoulders, your feet soaking in a copper tub of petals and aromatherapy oils while soothing spa music plays overhead. THIS is Soakology. And if you haven't been there, you don't know what your'e missing. It's a simple equation:... More

This was my 4th visit to Soakology, my first at this "new" location on Congress Street. I have to say, one of my favorite aspects of Soakology was the intimate, cozy, brick walled basement that gave it such an "old world" feel while in Monument Square, from the old fashioned wooden moose sign they had, to the tiny stairs leading...

This was my second visit to Soakology and I have enjoyed it both times. The tea selection is broad and the quality good. I had a chocolate mint foot soak with reflexology and a shoulder massage. They were all great. This would be a good place for a group, for couples, or solo as I did. A little pricey, but... More

I was really looking forward to our Soakology experience. We had planned a group spa day as part of my friend's bachelorette. We were offered the Port Package since we had a group of 12 ladies and there were limited options for a group of this size. On the day of, the first red flag for me was the fact... More

3 months ago I called to schedule a group for my sister's bachelorette party. I was told there was a max of 12 people (we were a group of 12) and that we would be scheduled for the Port Package, at $71 PP, including gratuity. I was VERY excited about this place and could not wait to experience it. They... More

I was recently here as part of bachelorette party festivities. It was a perfect stop after walking around Portland for the day and some before dinner and dancing pampering. There were four of us and we did have a reservation. All of the ladies were wonderful, during every part of our experience. The menu was pretty large for the variety... More
