The Healing Oasis' registered holistic nutritionist helps clients level out nutritional imbalances during hour-long consultations. After an optional 15-minute complimentary phone consultation, clients enter the centre's renovated brick century-home-style office and receive guidance on an array of health issues such as weight, pregnancy, food supplement abuse, and stuck pickle jars. A registered nutritional consulting health practitioner assesses each person's individual nutritional needs and then designs a personalized nutritional plan focused on proper protein, carbohydrate, fibre, and fat ratios. Finally, the holistic practitioner equips clients with a food journal perfect for keeping track of meals and which head of lettuce has the dreamiest smile.

Under the unrelenting tutelage of master stylist Suzanne Martin, Three Small Rooms, with its bi-weekly in-house training sessions and skill-certification program, is as much a master-class in advanced hairology as a traditional salon. Each hair harvester studies at the barbicide-perfumed feet of top industry experts, attending seminars and shows regularly to stay on the sharpest of cutting edges in terms of modern head fashion and celebrity styles. Groupon holders will get a cut-and-style session with a level 6 stylist, just beneath "master stylist" but still able to defeat most hair-growth spells.
Omega Laser's specialists combine acupuncture techniques with modern technology in an effort to balance the flow of energy between the meridians of the body.

Technicians also provide guidance for clients hoping to master the psychological urge to light up.

The relaxation masters at The Green Day Spa pamper faces and hands with unhurried treatments and natural ingredients.

Fingertips fiddle in anticipation of the spa’s natural manicure, which softens paws with pomegranate, vanilla, and lemon and scolds unruly cuticles back into their proper hiding place. Hand owners choose from a colour wheel of polish shades, which are vegan and paraben-free.
