During her nearly 20 years as a certified practitioner, Lois Scott has learned how to use massage as an effective tool for sustaining mental and physical well-being. She uses a range of massage techniques, including Swedish and sports massage, to boost circulation, encourage lymphatic drainage, and ease sore muscles. Over the years, she has also incorporated aesthetic treatments into her repertoire.
To help clients take her work home, she hosts classes on relaxation massage and foot reflexology that teach students ways to pamper their loved ones at home. Classes come with take-home DVDs and instruction books for students whose stone tablets aren’t big enough to chisel all their notes onto.
Laser Health Centre's certified beam-wielders deploy lasers in rejuvenating cosmetic procedures, drug-free pain relief, and behavioural-modification regimens for substance abuse and smoking cessation. Staff members customize treatments to suit each patient, and in-office laser therapy may be reinforced by take-home nutritional supplements. An exclusive diet plan paired with laser therapy tackles weight-loss goals, and light-based medicine enhances the mind-soothing stress-relief program.
Since 2007, Beautifully Holistic has created a line of specialty skincare products, mineral makeup, and beautifying accessories that align with a belief in organic, natural, handmade, and cruelty-free products. Inside their eco spas, conscious aestheticians work to both educate and rejuvenate visitors with eco-friendly services such as all-natural hair removal with organic sugar paste and mani-pedis with nontoxic polish.
After taking in the majestic, snow-capped peaks in the distance, which jut above the serene waters of Harrison Lake, guests can meander through the brick-lined courtyard of the Ramada Hotel and into the relaxing confines of The Spa at Ramada. The spa, run by holistic-medicine specialist Nicole Rowan, coddles guests during treatments. Couples massages are performed on side-by-side tables covered with soft blankets and the flicker of candles, which plays across the floral paintings lining each private room. Facials gently rejuvenate skin with organic Éminence products and mani-pedis prep digits for elegant nights out or professional rock, paper, scissors championships.
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.
At Mission Oaks Laser & Spa, a licensed crew of laser technicians and aestheticians buffs bodily exteriors in a clean and professional environment. Medicam intense-pulsed-light units lower the friction coefficients of upper lips, chins, and bikini lines and work to remove tattoos, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate spider veins. The team also eschews these light-based labours to perform a slate of spa services, such as massages, mani-pedis, and hair stylings. Before each treatment during complimentary consultations, clients can choose their technician and express their individual needs and any concerns.
The staff at Steel Blue Healing Inc promotes healthfulness with a selection of vitamins, natural medications, and healing treatments.
