Helmed by new owners, Synchronicity Wellness delves into alternative forms of healing to revitalize stress-laden physiques. To sooth sore muscles, a massage therapist stretches out stiff joints and improves the function of systems throughout the body with mobilization techniques. The therapists administer ionic footbaths that pass alternately charged particles through the soles of the feet, drawing out toxic deposits. The infrared sauna comfortably flushes away leftover rubbish hiding out in the fascia by warming the air around the body instead of the skin directly.

Lasers have been a constant source of wonder ever since they were invented in 1992 to read the tiny music that exists on every compact disc, but the reach of their possible applications has turned out to be absolutely astronomical. These days, med-spa owners around the globe and back look to this basically intangible, thoroughly ineffable technology to undo the perpetual advancement of time where it gets most ugly: on our skin. With an interminable army of state-of-the-art laser machines, the savvy techs of Avid MediSpa flatten out fine lines, stunt the growth of unsightly hair, and cancel the appearance of spider veins. Any service can be hyper-impacted with the addition of intense pulsed light therapy, which shines pulses of heat and light on the outermost layers of skin to further obscure wrinkles, repair sun damage, and melt away stray crayon marks.
Evanesce Medispa’s title is evocative of its services. Medical aestheticians evanesce, or dissipate, aesthetic concerns ranging from wrinkles to spider veins with nonsurgical medical treatments. Beams of the intense-pulsed-light system target spider veins, causing them to coagulate and absorb into the body. Pixel laser skin resurfacing unveils fresh skin cells with laser blasts harvested from the lightsabers of local Vaders, and blue-light therapy renders acne-causing bacteria and sebaceous oil glands obsolete. Dr. J.C. Maytham administers medical injectables, sending wrinkles and fine lines off in search of a pug's face. Evanesce Medispa's technicians sculpt physiques with laser body contouring and heat-induced cellulite reduction. Spa facials with aromatherapy nourish skin, and acupressure massages drain away stress.
The second word in Essence Naturopathic Organic Medical Spa refers to the naturopathic doctor who helms the spa’s licensed staff. A holistic practice that informs many of the spa’s treatments, naturopathy is based on the idea that the body can best heal itself with proper food and exercise, rather than with medicines that merely treat each ailment’s symptoms. This is not to say that the spa’s services are not medically informed; the doctor oversees a wide range of herbal-medicine, weight-loss, nutrition, and infertility treatments designed to aid and stimulate the body’s own healing powers. The rest of the staff—comprised of a spa therapist, a laser technician, a makeup artist, and an anthropomorphic terrycloth robe with a penchant for bear hugs—supplements the doctor’s treatments with more traditional spa services, such as organic peels, hot-stone massages, facials, and body wraps.
Lily of the Valley Spa rejuvenates weary back muscles with serenity-inducing hot-stone massages. During each one-hour treatment, expert kneaders dapple overburdened frames with balmy lava stones harvested from organic volcano orchards. First, bodies are gilded in a patina of fragrant aromatherapy oil that stimulates and soothes oft-neglected olfactory agents. Once muscles have been sufficiently cosseted and loosened with relaxation techniques, a hot steamed towel ferries away excess oil from epidermal topographies. Guests box-step out of their appointment feeling as calm and limber as a slinky performing a downward dog pose.
An aesthetician, hairstylist, registered massage therapist, and holistic nutritionist comprise the team at Body Essence, rejuvenating exteriors with trendy new ‘dos and Shellac manicures and improving wellness through nutritional counselling. They soothe aching bodies with Swedish massage and with the Bowen Technique, a soft-tissue therapy with a sequence of precise moves that promote relaxation and self-healing. The staff also waxes away moustaches or waxes eyebrows into the shape of Roman columns, and relieves arthritis with reflexology treatments.
Owner and aesthetician Katrina Barringer opened Skin Essentials Laser and Medical Spa in 1999, and has since recruited an elite team of eight that includes a physician and a licensed acupuncturist. Each of the women on staff boasts a specialty such as bamboo-fusion massage, eyelash extensions, or aromatherapy that smells like colors. Barringer's interests are of an academic complexion, as she penned an award-winning paper and is one of 67 laser technicians without an M.D. degree to be accepted into the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
Wortley Wellness Centre's passionate instructors promote holistic well-being with classes scheduled six days a week that bolster physical as well as mental health. Sixty-minute Nia sessions for students of any fitness level employ 52 sensory-based movements culled from such dynamic practices as martial arts, dance, and professional charades. The exercises target the body's base, core, and upper extremities while fostering a sense of self-expression that, unlike metaphysical debates, unites both bodies and minds. Yoga classes place attendees in the care of an experienced instructor who additionally wields special training in the arts of prenatal, postnatal, and therapeutic yoga, leading students through 60-minute sequences. The studio buoys patrons' steps with wood flooring and a wall of full-length mirrors that allows students to practice their winking skills and monitor their form.
Elite Ocean Spa's friendly aestheticians foster a warm atmosphere for restoring faces to their naturally smooth state. Within soothing private rooms, the microdermabrasion treatment sloughs off squatting deadbeat skin to reveal a vibrant visage capable of reflecting the light of the sun back to its smug spot in the sky. Following a complimentary consultation, clients can sip on a complimentary beverage and turn mind matter on autopilot as melanocytes are gently ushered into atmospheric oblivion, stimulating cell growth and collagen production. The 45-minute treatment can help decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, Sharpie mustaches, and acne scars. Elite Ocean Spa recommends a series of four to six treatments in 7 to 10 day intervals for optimum results.
The Yew Tree Spa Boutique's experienced aestheticians skillfully calm ruffled muscles and forlorn faces using natural and environmentally friendly facial and body products. The 30-minute vitamin boost facial uses the power of vitamins to outrun oxidants trying to wreak havoc on innocent faces. After toxins are sent to the dark side, skin resumes a youthful glow akin to a radioactive puppy. The relaxational massage nullifies tension between you and your muscles, opening a floodgate of communication that results in promises to stop accusing each other of neglect.
Back 'n Motion's certified therapists coax bodies into superior health, allaying a variety of complaints . An initial assessment allows staff to personalize treatments to the specific lifestyle and needs of each patient. Tap inner reserves of energy and well-being as a certified acupuncturist gently works to help expunge chronic pain and other ailments. Disposable needles prevent infection, and most patients feel only minimal discomfort. Like a stop sign eating an apple, laser therapy harnesses the power of the colour red in order to increase production of cortisol and improve the body's healing process. This treatment helps alleviate tendonitis, repetitive stress injury, and a host of other bodily complaints.
Innercore Health's team of fully registered and licensed therapists diminishes body discomfort, enriches epidermises, and unburdens backs with its array of acupuncture and chiropractic treatments. Extremely thin needles slide into skin during relaxation acupuncture, flooding bodies with dull or tingling sensations that reduce inflammation, headaches, and fear of haystack exploration. After pinpointing areas of concern during a consultation, cosmetic acupuncture reduces aging signs by inserting ultrathin, stainless-steel needles into faces, stimulating circulation and minimizing fine lines during 45- to 60-minute sessions. Doctors assess medical histories and complete physical exams to determine individual client vertebral issues before administering an up to one-hour chiropractic-therapy treatment that corrects spinal misalignments and relieves pain in necks or lower backs. With smoothed skin and straightened spines, patrons depart Innercore Health with more youthful radiance, taller presences, and the newfound ability to balance the complete works of Charles Dickens on their heads.
Aglow Spa & Aesthetics houses a team of amiable manicurists who beautify fingers and toes within the spa’s professional atmosphere. Fingernails damaged by sock-puppet mosh pits and everyday use can attain their former glory with beautifying mani-pedi overhauls. Express manicures and express pedicures last 30 minutes each as clippers cleanly sever wayward nail edges, and nails begin to gleam under a flurry of of filing, buffing, and a final glossing with coloured polish. With wild cuticles wrangled, dry hands then absorb the warming and hydrating properties of a soothing warm-paraffin-wax treatment. The wax's inherent emollient properties sink into pores, and as wax mitts are removed, hands emerge newly moisturized, relaxed, and as smooth as a baby sea otter's parallel-parking skills. As part of this offer, Groupon customers also receive 20% off an optional full makeup application purchased during their visit.
Etherion Advanced Skincare and Body Centre's aestheticians improve skin three ways: through high-tech treatments, holistic skincare, and education. They wield a variety of lasers that do everything from fight acne and wrinkles to remove unwanted body hair and spider veins. They also combine technology such as microcurrent devices with high-quality skincare products during facials, and they use organic body polishes formulated with plant and sea extracts and aromatic oils to slough off dead skin cells.
But they don't want to merely treat clients—they also strive to educate them about great skincare. They do this by first analyzing the client's skin and then determining what steps the client should take in the spa and at home to achieve their skincare goals.
A full service spa and salon, Merle Norman Cosmetics & Day Spa pampers and beautifies guests with an extensive slate of services. Sunless spray tans anoint pale hides with organic, UV-free solutions, bronzing whole bodies or specific areas, such as the face, upper body, or one buttock. Meanwhile, nail techs manicure and pedicure hands and feet, shaping nails and cuticles before applying a choice of OPI nail colour. Waxes deftly remove unwanted hair from lips, chins, and arms, as facial treatments do the same to dead and dry skin. Additionally, patrons can opt to select from a list of makeup and skin care products, to take home mascaras, glosses, or moisturizers.
