Bodhi Holistic Spa was born in 2005 after 28 year old founder, Melinda Macchiaroli landed in Hudson NY after a life changing backpacking trip to India to study with HH the Dalai Lama. On that trip Melinda, a long island native, received the Bodhicitta initiation from his Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The first phase of the journey was a small rental on the third floor of a building on Warren street where Melinda offered her clients Massage therapy and Reiki. Within 5 years there was a staff of 20 and the entire building was taken over with the vision of a true spa with all of the offerings possible in an urban setting and a shop to purchase natural products and self and spirit care items for at home wellness.
Bodhi continued to grow and so did the Bodhi family. In 2013 by divine grace Melinda and her husband TJ were guided to purchase and do a full renovation themselves on the current location.
