Physical, mental, and social health come together at this one-stop-shop for wellness providers and retail therapy.
Vibe: A healthy dose of self-care for your whole family

Take one step into Nurture and the calm atmosphere and minimalist decor will help you feel instantly relaxed. The wellness marketplace, located between the Highland Park and West Highland neighborhoods, offers a variety of soothing, energizing, and nourishing services. Complete with a café, fitness center, spa, family therapy offices, and retail shops, Nurture is a space where families can meet a handful of wellbeing needs under one roof.
Seek Prenatal or Postpartum Care
Home to more than 40 healthcare providers, Nurture offers a variety of services that focus on the needs of new and expectant mothers. See a lactation specialist so you can meet your breastfeeding goals, schedule a physical therapy session to help with recovery from childbirth, or connect with a doula to gain support throughout a pregnancy.
Enjoy a Meal
Even if you don’t have an entire afternoon to spare, treat yourself to a wholesome meal from Nurture’s café. The restaurant partners with local farmers to deliver dishes with clean, quality ingredients. Try the seasonal soup, salmon ginger salad, or berry beauty smoothie. Little diners love the PB&J overnight oats and lemon blueberry scones, both of which are made without refined sugar.
In November, Nurture will host Youth Fitness Classes every Wednesday at 7 p.m. The classes will be run by fitness experts from Team Testa Wellness, a local company that specializes in family coaching and education. Drop off active kiddos (ages eight to 13) for a fun class designed to provide a low-stress, encouraging environment.
Along with the youth fitness classes, Andrea Testa, owner of Team Testa, and Brynn Goldberg from Peak Pursuits counseling, will be hosting a workshop focused on family communication, collaboration, and movement on Tuesday, November 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The class will start with an educational chat about managing pre-holiday stressors and finish with a workout that includes both strength training and cardio.
