Irene Ritter (May 17, – 1957 – Oct. 2, 2015)

e Salon and Med Spa was the dream and vision of Irene Ritter. Irene was a prominent business women in Meridian ID for nearly 30 years. Prior to opening e Salon, she was the backbone and owner of the successful Willowtree dental practice.

Irene, along with her two daughters, Lisa Lizama and Lori Carnell spent 4 years creating, designing and building her vision; a 6000 square foot, all inclusive, 5 star luxury, full service salon and med spa. That dream came to fruition in November of 2014 when e Salon opened its doors.

Irene’s unexpected and untimely passing left behind a lasting legacy.
She lives on in the lives of her daughters and within the walls of e Salon.

Spa means “Health By Water” and e Salon is the only place in the Treasure Valley to offer the “Taking of the Waters” ritual. This includes a Finnish sauna, eucalyptus steam room and mineral infused hydrotherapy pool. The ritual elevates the “spa” experience into a deeply nourishing detoxifying and muscle relieving wellness treatment.

Today e Salon is thriving and growing. Lisa and Lori, along with over 20 dedicated staff and service providers are passionate about providing the “X-Factor”. “Excellence in exceeding guests’ expectation with a luxury experience every time!” Irene always said she wanted e Salon to be a place for you to experience a “mini vacation”. She said, “Leave your troubles at the door, they’ll be there when you return.”
We invite you to step inside and experience luxury like never before. The minute you walk through the door – you are in our hands. It’s time to e Salon.
