The highly trained staff at Solaris Spa utilizes advanced technology and high-quality products to beautify bodies in a tranquil setting. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the sound of a trickling granite waterfall, a peaceful melody designed to calm the senses and call to mind pleasant memories of a secret crush on a former plumber. Guests slip into oversized robes and cozy slippers before relaxing with a massage in a candlelit treatment room, or head to the far-infrared sauna to incite fat burn and purge the body of toxins. Aestheticians brighten men's and women's complexions during anti-aging facials, using products from the Priori line; mani-pedis are enhanced with fragrant sea salt and peppermint. The spa also specializes in laser hair-removal and skin-correction treatments, which begin with a free consultation with a certified laser technician and often end with speedier trips down playground slides.
When it comes to beauty treatments, the team at Soft Touch Day Spa & Laser doesn't just stick to the classics. Instead, they're committed to keeping up with new technology?so it's no surprise that their service menu seems to include almost everything.
For example, the spa's aestheticians perform radio-frequency skin rejuvenation in addition to airbrush makeup applications. Massage therapists reduce tension with reflexology treatments, and laser technicians zap away hair or help to improve skin tone. Out in the salon, nail technicians massage limbs and count toes free of charge during mani-pedis.
Natural Reflextions borrows from Mother Nature's innate sense of style with its decorative plants, earthy tones, and fragrant candles, convincing visitors they've stepped inside a forest sanctuary. The zen-like ambience pervades the spa's treatment rooms, which overlook rock gardens dappled with trees and the fountain of youth where Sophia Loren resides. Beneath billowing cloths hanging from the ceiling, a team of relaxation experts administers massages and skincare treatments inspired by nature's soothing, curative elements.
The spa's menu of services whisks visitors onto a cloud of relaxation with its seaweed body wraps that swaddle physiques in nourishing Seaflora products and footbaths that reward the hardest working jack-o'-lantern stompers. Skin reaches its aesthetic peak with facials using anti-aging Dermalogica serums and waxing that ousts unneeded bodily fleece. Handcrafted and fair-trade items—including teapots, jewellery, and natural soaps—can be discovered in the spa's boutique, encouraging guests to support the local artisans from which they came.
A sprawling complex where natural beauty and holistic medicine converge, Oasis Rejuvenation Centre & Spa welcomes guests to relax and recharge. The wellness team is composed of director Teresa Yu, a registered nurse, and a group of specialists in the healing field. Massage therapists and reiki masters tend to sore muscles and low spirits, and acupuncturists practice their trade with compassionate focus. Aestheticians, meanwhile, facilitate external beauty with facials, mani-pedis, and waxing. In addition to private rooms for treatments and lavish suites for overnight stays, Oasis boasts open fields and forests perfect for regaining strength and releasing everyday stress by twirling as fast as possible.
Spa Utopia’s services range from those of a salon to those of a med-spa, recognizing the connection between medical and more purely aesthetic issues. Facials can purify skin or minimize signs of aging, and they also calm rosacea outbreaks. A LightSheer Diode system combats unwanted stubble during laser hair-removal sessions, and beams from a Fox Diode system attack toenail fungus. Massage therapists use styles ranging from traditional Swedish to deep tissue, and they’re glad to combine modalities to target unique troubles such as lower back pain or shoulders that won’t stop shimmying.
Clients can concentrate attention on an array of beauty and body needs by booking a couples room or VIP suite for an afternoon of private treatments. Even the public areas of the spa evince a strong taste for luxury—clients walking in are greeted by a marble-topped reception desk and a giant, faux-stone archway engraved with the spa’s name before passing between polished pillars leading to a grand fountain.
As they go about the day, the beauticians at Filomena Salon Spa use products from brands such as Dermalogica, OPI, and Kevin Murphy and make sure their guests stay educated about beauty. Hairstylists—each with an attention to detail rivaled only by the finest of tax collectors—consult with their clients before starting cut-and-colour sessions, adding extensions, or performing KeraStraight smoothing treatments. Filomena’s technicians use a cream-based wax to remove unwanted hair, and harness the power of St. Tropez tanning solution to give skin a healthy, natural-looking glow. And when you visit, whether it’s for a spa mani-pedi or a relaxing massage, they’re ready to offer the added comfort of tea and cookies.
