Appoise, the newly built wellness spa on 10 Railroad Ave. SW, officially opened its doors on June 1. This modern business offers a culmination of whole health and self-care services and products for its customers. 

Nicole Johnson, the founder of Appoise, has extensive training in everything from organic skincare modalities to advanced skincare products and worked with over 20 skincare lines before moving back to Aberdeen and venturing into her own unique space. Her goal was to bring individual businesses together, creating a one-stop-shop for all their customers’ needs, and organize and lead free-to-low-cost education and workshops.

Appoise is a collaboration of wellness advocates working together under one roof to provide an array of skincare and therapeutic services alongside healing wellness resources. With eight individual businesses working under the umbrella of Appoise, services range through a plethora of specialties: facials and waxing, yoga and Pilates private instruction, life and nutrition coaching, massage therapy, and foot zoning.

The excitement does not stop there. A lobby extending off the waiting area houses local artwork, kitschy retail gifts, and the products used by the businesses at Appoise. Nicole has even partnered with local businesses to include supplements for Alzheimer’s care and support.

“Sounds cliché, but one thing that is most important is knowing that we all can do our best, act with kindness, and live out loud while we invest in other people’s health,” Nicole said. // – Josie Clemens
