About Us

Escape the fast-paced, stressful work week at The Petite Retreat; a sister location to our downtown Durham studio – The Retreat Massage & Aesthetics at Brightleaf.

At The Petite Retreat we have created a more clinical studio, where you will find a calm atmosphere to rejuvenate and escape from the chaos of your day. Our highly trained staff is focused on excellence in service, by customizing each guest’s experience to ensure consistency. Our mission is to nurture an environment of peace and harmony that facilitates each individual’s body, mind, and spirit. Our priority is to have you leave feeling relaxed, revived, and refreshed. We specialize in clients wanting to create a therapeutic  maintenance regime, but we are able to cater to a wide variety of clients and their specific needs.

  • ‘The Retreat at Brightleaf truly lives up to it’s name.
    It is more of a wellness and healing center than a spa.
    It was my birthday so I had a massage and a facial. Pure bliss. I left feeling like a million bucks.’ – Audra S.

  • ‘The Retreat at Brightleaf is my go-to spot for massage, facials and acupuncture …
    I haven’t had a single service here that has left me anything but relaxed and pleased.
    The location is super convenient and they have hours that accommodate my less than traditional schedule.
    Do yourself a favor and book an appointment today!’ – Candice C.
