Chosen as the Gold winner for best spa and aesthetics studio in the Calgary Herald Readers' Choice Awards, Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa stretches across 15,000 square feet equipped with more than 30 treatment rooms staffed by experts in skincare, massage, and aesthetics. With a belief that spa treatments are not just a luxury but a necessity to overall well-being, the team welcomes guests to their ancient Egyptian-themed resort to slip into a snuggly robe and slippers while aestheticians soothe and treat skin conditions with their own skincare line, Teye Treatment. Amid a pyramid motif and pillars etched with hieroglyphics, mani-pedi pros perform hydrating paraffin pedicures and manicures, and the steam room envelopes patrons in a rejuvenating eucalyptus inhalation steam and the sauna works to extract body toxins, purifying pores and melting muscles the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart. Helming the friendly team of staff members, president of the Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa, Peter Smed, told the Calgary Herald, "People love to work here," noting that the spa's size allows for convenient appointment-making, happy customers, and happy staffers.

At four members, the size of the staffat Azzuro'Terra Laser Spa & Hair Salon may be modest, but that doesn't mean their scope is small. That's because each member practices multiple disciplines; Deborah Walsh, for example, not only trims and tints hair, but also erases prominent veins with vascular laser treatments. The spa's approaches to beauty are just as diverse, making use of everything from the natural ingredients of champagne facials to the high-tech methods of laser hair removal, which uses equipment designed specifically for use on darker skin tones and hairy shadows.
