Our Roots

The Urban Lounge Salon & Spa, now reborn as The Urban Collective Wellness Lounge, stands as Petawawa's pioneer and exclusive natural salon and spa destination.

Born in the heart of Pembroke, I hold an unbreakable bond with this area I call home. With a background anchored in Hairstyling and Business, my journey led me to carve out a haven of tranquility in the Ottawa Valley. As the proud owner, I embarked on a mission to create an environment brimming with serenity, supported by premium experiences and professional-grade natural products that are both cruelty-free and organic.

Having navigated a transformative path, we now thrive under the name "The Urban Collective Wellness Lounge." Our renewed focus extends beyond the physical to encompass the mind, body, and soul. Over the past 7 years, our evolution has led us to offer a diverse array of holistic experiences, including float therapy, sound bath sessions, reiki, enriching workshops, and transformative retreats. Our commitment is to guide you on a journey of self-care that delves into the deepest recesses of your being, fostering healing and profound transformation.

Proudly situated in this cherished locale, my connection with the Ottawa Valley runs deep. This is where I belong and where my passion for nurturing well-being thrives.

Upon entering our sanctuary, a team of seasoned stylists guarantees a comprehensive service. Each visit is a personalized and soothing encounter, leaving you revitalized and rejuvenated. Our overarching mission is to cater to your hair needs while keeping you well-informed about current styles, trends, and the realm of natural, cruelty-free hair care.

As you ascend into our spa, the ambiance resonates with melodic tunes and the gentle murmur of water features. A certified aesthetician extends a warm welcome. Our spa, a sanctuary endorsed by Éminence Organics, is the idyllic retreat you've been seeking. We present a comprehensive array of spa services and curated packages.

Amid my multifaceted life, I'm enamored with my two furry companions, Charlie and Chester, along with every dog I encounter (bring your dog along for a visit!). As a manifesting generator, I have an unshakeable affinity for all things manifestation. Being married to a military member has imbued me with the role of a dedicated spouse, and my teenage son, whom I affectionately call "boo," continues to be a joy in my life.

The prospect of connecting with you fills us with anticipation and excitement.


We eagerly await the opportunity to welcome you into our newly transformed space, where the focus is on nurturing your mind, body, and soul through a holistic approach that fosters healing and transformation.

With Love & Light, Portia xx
