The Byron Bay region is well known as a mecca for wellbeing and spirituality. Wellness retreats are common here and locals and visitors alike seek to relax, unwind and develop their own connection with mind and body.

There are heaps of ways in the Northern Rivers to recharge and boost both your mental and physical health. Here are our pick of the bunch.


Comma is here to remind you of the sublime in stillness. That amidst the clamour of modern life, time is your greatest currency.

As our name implies, Comma stands for taking a moment to breathe, regenerate, find calm and breath again.

Our Therapies Are Relatable, Customised And Intuitive.

We believe in the healing power of touch, in conscious minimalism, warm neutrals, pacifying low light, and baptism by oiled up limbs. But there’s more to Comma than a moment of day-spa-induced sopor. Comma represents a lifestyle that’s enriched and balanced inside and outside our walls. A place where you’ll have the sort of holistic massage experience that will make you wonder how you ever went on without it.
