Lotus Goes Greener and Greener
Lotus Massage & Wellness Center recently completed audits and improvement projects as part of the City of Tucson Green Business Certification Program, which requires new projects be implemented annually, so even a venue like Lotus Center, which opened in 2007 as a genuinely green business, is continually growing greener.
Recent projects include improving insulation and weather stripping and making their traditional adobe construction more energy efficient, as well as quieter and more comfortable for massage clients.
Tucson Water now recognizes Lotus Center as “WaterSmart,” achieving 44 of 45 points in best management practices. The center staff is proud to have their efforts acknowledged on a national level as well, through a seal of approval from Green America as an approved member of their Green Business Network.
Many of the environmental measures at Lotus Massage & Wellness Center are not obvious, from purchasing organic massage lubricants and natural cleaning supplies to carbon offsets. Founder Laura Key says that a full list would be too lengthy to print.
Adaptive reuse of a classic 1930 adobe structure provides an atmosphere that feels welcoming, relaxing and “totally Tucson.” The effort to be green does not distract the Lotus Center staff from giving careful attention to their bodywork and energy work abilities. They enjoy “treatment trades” and “skill share” sessions as well as giving clients therapeutic massage that feels wonderful and gives lasting benefits.
