At the Centre for Ayurveda & Indian Systems of Healing, experienced practitioners integrate East Indian Ayurveda medicine with other forms of holistic healing to nurture patients' overall wellness. Thai yoga massage unites yoga poses and hands-on bodywork to help clients release tension, improve circulation, and morph into their spirit animal. As participants hold guided postures, therapists press their palms and thumbs against the body's energy lines and pressure points. The massage techniques strive to balance each client's innate energies so the body can heal itself and find the courage to stand up to weak showerheads.
Complete Balance Health Centre lives up to its name by housing a diverse staff whose services aid in patients’ overall well-being. Doctors of Chiropractic help treat injuries and correct posture with adjustments that include pretreatment warm-ups and posttreatment care, such as stretching and heat therapy. Naturopathic doctors nimbly execute an array of natural practices, from acupuncture to homeopathic medicine and botanical and herbal substances. Meanwhile, registered massage therapists improve blood flow and flexibility with soft-tissue manipulation that alleviates chronic pain and convinces muscles to hand over stress and life savings. But the Complete Balance Health Centre team knows that not all pain is physical. The staffers also help people combat fear and anxiety stemming from traumatic events, such as car accidents.
Unique Skincare Spa & Salon's menu is a balance of aesthetic services and wellness treatments. The team's specialty is treating blemishes, age spots, and other pigmentation issues, which they do with custom facials that might involve medicated acne masks or high-frequency treatments. Peels––both chemical and organic––and microdermabrasion target more intense problems, and facial bleaching can help reverse advanced hyperpigmentation or dark purple wine stains. Aestheticians put the finishing touches on faces with waxing and threading services, and nail technicians give hands and feet similarly lavish attention with french manicures, spa pedicures, and paraffin dips.
Those seeking internal therapy can opt for one of eight women's body treatments, which include hot-stone massage and full-body scrubs. Ear candling is a natural method for extracting built-up wax, and bio-energizer therapy furthers the detoxification process by encouraging the expulsion of toxins from throughout the body.
The practitioners at Work Well Health Canada help their patients find relief from a wide range of maladies through holistic and natural treatments. They use acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine to recalibrate the flow of energy through the body, address fertility issues, and shoo away crow's-feet from the face. The naturopathic doctors on staff utilize homeopathic and herbal remedies to help the body heal itself, and the team's massage therapists promote this same vision of wellness with soothing bodywork sessions. Detox programs push pollutants and long-held deposits of gravy out through the lymphatic system, and cold laser treatments can help smokers kick their unhealthy habit.
After she began working for a salon at age 14, Pina Baldassi knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to the beauty industry. This passion led her to open Pina B's Salon & Spa in 1987, and eventually expand the business 10 years later to add space for spa treatments.
One group already benefits from Pina's decades of experience, though—the staff at Pina B's Salon & Spa. Under their employer's guidance, the stylists work with clients to design flattering new looks. The aestheticians look beyond scalps to exfoliate bodies with blends of salts and aromatic oils, design custom facials using Oxygen Botanicals products, and uproot unwanted stubble with warm wax.
At The Amatsu Way, Susana Solari practices amatsu therapy, an ancient Japanese treatment that believes overall wellness is achieved by re-balancing the entire body while working on soft tissue. During a typical session, clients lie on a table like best-selling rag doll Washcloth Willy as the practitioner employs light pressure, massage kneads, and natural body movements such as gentle folds, lifts, and twists to reach the soft tissue. Once applied, the techniques can yield an array of benefits, including reduced pain, restored balance, and increased circulation. Susana also practices Indian scalp massage.
