The Sanctuary is now officially open at East Side Pilates (ESP), in Milwaukee. The welcoming and inclusive Pilates studio offers not only a variety of Pilates classes for all interests and abilities, they also offer additional services to support mind-body wellness.

The private back room of the studio and boutique is known as The Sanctuary: a space that has recently opened with a variety of natural healing modalities. These include salt therapy (halotherapy), infrared sauna, red light therapy, amethyst biomat and cold plunge opportunities.

Contrast Therapy: Cold Plunge and 
Infrared Sauna


Contrast therapy is an ancient recovery technique of alternating between hot and cold. Benefits of contrast therapy with the infrared sauna and cold plunge include reductions in fatigue, muscle soreness, lactic acid build-up and swelling.

Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy helps improve wound healing and skin health by reducing wrinkles, age spots, scars and stretch marks, as well as improving psoriasis, rosacea, eczema and acne.

Salt Therapy (Halotherapy)

Laying on a salt bed can help to promote detoxification and support the immune system, improve skin health by removing irritating bacteria and impurities, and support respiratory health by clearing airways and decreasing inflammation which eases asthma and allergies, too.


East Side Pilates also houses a local boutique that offers apparel, crystals and unique gifts. Jesse Masche, owner of East Side Pilates, Phlox Boutique MKE and The Sanctuay, encourages all to stop by and enjoy one or all three of these opportunities in this collective community space.

Location: 2445 N. Farwell Ave., Milwaukee. To book holistic wellness services at The Sanctuary or classes at East Side Pilates, contact Jesse Masche at 414-915-7100 or visit
