Your First Look at Rescue Spa’s New Space

Plus, we have all the details on the spa’s newest offerings.

Rescue Rittenhouse SpaPhilly’s style set has been buzzing about Rescue’s move to the Medical Arts Building at 16th and Walnut. (Seriously, for the city’s beauty scene, this is akin to the moving of the Barnes.) The move itself was no small task: Rescue enlisted the help of Fishtown-based art curator Eileen Tognini (you might recognize her name from our feature of her amazing Schuylkill County hideaway), and then expanded its offerings to make the spa even more of a can’t-live-without spot.

“Rescue has been open for almost 10 years and we have an amazing clientele.  When I realized we couldn’t accommodate everyone, I decided it was time to build a bigger and better space,” says owner Danuta Mieloch. “My vision was to have a place in the city where you can relax and unwind while being surrounded by beautiful things.  We’ve commissioned local artists and furniture-makers to make Rescue a truly unique experience—not just a place to receive treatments but a place to escape.”

This means more treatments—they added a hair salon!—along with a larger lounge area for pre- and post-treatment relaxation, and even more product lines. Keep reading for your first look at Rescue’s new space.
