Voted the best city spa in 2010 by Chatelaine, sweetgrass spa seizes luxury services back from the exfoliated fists of men by offering its therapeutic treatments to only women in a comfortable environment. During an express facial, sweetgrass spa’s friendly estheticians remove the clutter clogging clients’ skin vents while moisturizing and revitalizing the skin with a coat of day cream to leave visitors with a fresh-off-the-lot new face shine. The express massage expediently delivers an equally comprehensive bodily renewal. Spa therapists delicately handle wearied muscles of the back, neck, and shoulders, extracting tension and knocking it unconscious with brass-knuckled fury. Arrive early to enjoy the indulgent spa amenities at sweetgrass, including a whirlpool, an infrared sauna, and an ozonated pool with an underwater treadmill, as well as towel service and a guest change room with lockers containing spa attire.
According to Lynn Shulman, founder of Elixir Organic Spa, "Our products are so pure, you can literally eat them." Aside from slathering the spa’s food-grade products on her face and morning toast, Shulman makes a concerted effort to bust myths about food and product labels. For instance, she says that “many products on the market are falsely labelled as ‘natural’ or ‘organic’” when they’re really packed with chemicals and toxins. This realization led her to develop a house brand of synthetic-free beauty products. Stockpiled alongside products from like-minded artisans, Elixir Organic Spa’s rinses, scrubs, and lotions permeate spa services such as the exfoliating fig enzyme facial and the Dead Sea mud and eucalyptus body wrap.
From the top of its vaulted ceilings and exposed rafters to the hardwood floors of its treatment rooms, Natura Day Spa exudes relaxation. Spa treatments range from manicures and pedicures to detoxifying body wraps and customized facials. Using the SharpLight laser skincare system, Natura Day Spa's staff can zap away unwanted body hair or an entire family of troll dolls. Alternatively, these lasers can shrink pores and eliminate unsightly blemishes. Spa packages combine treatments to create full-body makeovers or all-day pampering sessions.
