EM Beautician School of Canada & Spa is an immersive learning environment where students rehearse their aesthetic skills by manning the on-site spa. Their treatments are likewise immersive for clients: body exfoliation or a hot-stone massage sinks physiques into relaxation, and facials cleanse pores with Dermalogica products or even 24-karat gold, which feels more luxurious against the skin than a caviar necklace.
Of course, instructors constantly monitor the seasoned pupils as they conduct their transformative services. Outside of the spa, instructors host classes on general aesthetics and nail care, preparing groups to earn their licences and provide care that is both stellar and sanitary. Their lessons cover topics from aromatherapy to electrotherapy and modern spa appliances, as well as physiology and cosmetic chemistry.

The licensed aestheticians at Antiquity Day Spa and Salon soothe guests with aromatherapeutic mud wraps in tranquil, private rooms. A salt glow exfoliation begins the one-hour treatment, sloughing off dead cells and revealing skin as smooth as Poseidon’s favourite skipping stone. Aestheticians coat corporeal planes in a therapeutic mud imported from France in addition to essential oils to please noses and calm minds. As the nutritive minerals from the earthy armour sink into skin, guests can admire the spa's jewel-toned walls and curtains made from ornate upholstery. Once the mud releases its gentle grip from arms and ankles, an aesthetician hydrates skin with an aromatic body moisturizer and optional Gatorade and high-fives.
