Anne Maaden Cosmetic and Laser Centre aims to bridge the gap between a salon and a plastic surgeon’s office. To do this, the centre's doctors and aestheticians perform services that are less invasive than surgery, yet more practical than donning a Venetian carnival mask for the rest of your life. High-tech machines are the spa's tools of choice; a LightSheer laser attacks hair follicles, an electrolysis machine removes skin tags, and a Pixel Perfect laser system resurfaces the skin. Aestheticians also cleanse and hydrate the skin with facials that use Jurlique products, which are derived from herbs and flowers grown on organic farms in Australia.
The certified medical team at Bodyklense Health Services flushes toxins from colons and bolsters healing abilities. The body gurus whisk clients away to private rooms for their natural treatments, during which gentle cleansings and hydrotherapies can target a range of conditions including pain and poor nutrient absorption. Focused on guiding patients towards healthier lifestyles, the cleansing pros also advise on proper diet and exercise regimens to maintain intestinal health without having to transform antacids into cupcakes.
Tranquil Therapeutic Solutions combines the unique approaches of various healthcare professionals, including a chiropractor, a physiotherapist, a naturopathic doctor, a Jedi knight, and several registered massage therapists. Patients come in for personalized services ranging from chiropractic adjustments to hot-stone massages to holistic nutrition consultations. The sleek wellness centre is festooned with Asian-inspired decor such as Buddha statues and bamboo shoots planted in pebbles.
The staff members at Arpies Hair and Beauty Salon pamper their clients from head to toe with massages, facials, and detoxifying body wraps. In addition to haircut and colour services with products from Guinot Institut and Nioxin, the salon also offers nail services with long-lasting Shellac polish and softening paraffin dips.
At Moksha Yoga Guelph, the hot yoga series starts with a deceptively simple pose—Savasana, or corpse pose, in which participants lie flat on their backs. The vigorous, toning series accelerates from there, though. Participants work up a sweat in a sequence of standing poses, then a series of floor poses, before circling back to their original passive posture.
The center doesn't focus exclusively on yoga, though—other wellness options abound. In the Ocean float room, for example, visitors float in a pool dense with salt, lit by underwater LED lights and a star-studded cathedral ceiling. The center's steam showers, meanwhile, deep-clean pores and strip away toxins, leaving physiques feeling refreshed.
Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.
