When stress bubbles to the surface, finding a quiet place where you can recenter your sense of peace is crucial. Northeast Portland’s Alberta neighborhood is home to such a spot: Hidden Oasis.

Billed as a “unique contactless experience designed to relax your mind, body, and senses,” Hidden Oasis opened quietly in December of 2022. We recently stopped by to try out an experience and, spoiler alert, we left feeling very relaxed.

Owner Jeremy Osslund greeted us as we entered off the street and explained that Hidden Oasis was designed with particular attention to the needs of people with autism. Individual rooms are stocked with high-end massage chairs, soothing lights, plants, and a tea bar with allergy-friendly cookies (made by Jeremy’s other venture — Portland’s Best Cookies).

Jeremy excused himself from the room. We informed the virtual assistant that we were ready to start our 30-minute adventure and proceeded to spend the next half-hour reconnecting with our inner calm. Simple, straightforward, and quick — but wonderfully rejuvenating.
