Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D. is known widely in both the psychoanalytic and holistic health communities. Her first spa, La Casa Resort Spa, established in 1986 in the Puerto Rican rain forest, was one of the earliest spas in this country. As a result of her prescience, Dr. Goldberg is recognized as being a leader in the spa industry, continuously in the forefront of advances in holistic health.
In order to make her work accessible to more people, Dr. Goldberg was persuaded by her resort guests to open a NYC facility. In 1993 Dr. Goldberg opened La Casa Day Spain the flatiron district of NYC. La Casa Day Spa is no ordinary spa. As well as traditional treatments such as massages, body wraps and facials, it emphasizes detoxification. It promotes the notion that the integrity of the colon is essential to health, and provides services for colon detoxification. As well, it brings elements of the ocean to its urban location by housing a floatation chamber. Dr Goldberg has developed and trademarked an innovative treatment of underwater massage in the floatation chamber, called flossage.
