About Us

Our Roots

Ummelina opened in 1986 when our founder, Nina Ummelina, opened the first day spa in Seattle on Sixth Avenue. Ten years later we moved to a new location on Fourth Avenue which allowed us to expand to four times our original size. In 2007, Ummelina opened a second location in the peaceful Yakima Valley, Washington State’s Wine Country. Thirteen years later in June of 2020, we moved all of our operations to the Yakima location.

Nina has developed numerous natural product lines with a focus on herbs from the land and sea combined with science and nature. Essence of Ummelina is an authentic organic aromatherapy collection. Ummelina Tea Spa is a collection of 27 organic herbal tea formulas blended from 250 herbs imported from around the world. From West Africa’s botanicals she created a Shea Butter and super fruit oil collection. And Ummelina Spa Formula is her skin care line which features seaweeds, botanical extracts, and essential oils. With a deep respect for the true essence of aromatherapy and because of her appreciation of its life-enhancing effects, she has been integrating essential oils into her treatments since the spa’s opening.

Remembering the past to prepare for our future is represented in the Rituals and Journeys offered. Ummelina’s approach is unique, you will feel the difference upon arrival. Above all, we celebrate our continuous journey toward knowledge and awareness. Come celebrate and explore your health and balance with us…
