Canadian Decompression & Pain Center has more in common with a haunted house than first meets the eye. Often, when a patient lies down on one of the treatment tables, it starts to shift on its own. Sadly for horror-movie fans, though, a computer controls the table, and its intentions are purely good. The spinal-decompression treatment—part of the centre's three-part neuro-decompression-therapy regimen—helps deliver fresh blood to chronically pained discs, working to strengthen and repair them over time. The doctors may even give patients an oxygen mask to breathe through during spinal decompression, which forces out even more toxins.

At 20 locations across the country, the Canadian Decompression & Pain Center provides this cutting-edge treatment. The staff's expertise doesn't end with pain management, however. The seasoned practitioners can also dole out eight med-spa services, including eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, teeth whitening, and injectable dermal fillers.

A group of doctors, united by the desire to blend progressive and traditional healing practices, banded together to launch HealthMedica Canada. The group's original endeavour met success, and today, the healthcare company peppers the Canadian landscape. Though it now has nearly 20 locations across five provinces, HealthMedica Canada remains true to its roots—each clinic's medical team takes a modern approach to traditional healing. Services range from chiropractic care to laser weight loss, and incorporate equipment such as class-IV lasers and computerized spinal-decompression apparatuses. The company also vends products for cosmetic and nutrition purposes, and produces literature, including expository articles and haikus, on topics related to integrated healthcare.

It's not the decor or even the selection of Aveda products that earns each of Life SalonSpa's locations the title of Aveda Lifestyle salon and spa. It's how the staff turns every visit into an experience that walks the line between relaxation and beauty. To learn where this line is, they embark on Aveda-led beauty pilgrimages to local and international experts, earning rewards for each new skill they gain. Along the way, they work through eight artistry levels, climbing from New Talents to Elite Masters who speak in proverbs and can soften a person's skin with a single gentle smile. But regardless of their level, all beauty pros learns one thing early on: the benefit of plant-based products.

The staff leads visitors on their own personal beauty pilgrimages, enveloping them in detoxifying steam, massaging couples side by side, or pampering them with a body-treatment package such as the aptly named "Chocolates for Breakfast." An emphasis on personalization and quality products also pervades the salon area. In addition to cutting chic 'dos, the stylists use plant proteins and natural antioxidants to correct issues such as dry and damaged hair.
