At Evergreen Skin Care & Salt Therapy, everyday elements such as sodium and oxygen become powerful instruments of rejuvenation. Visitors can step into a specialized salt room for 45-minute sessions, where a generator reproduces the atmosphere of a salt cave. The microscopic particles in the air help to clear the nasal and bronchial passages for easier breathing, even working to offset allergy and cold symptoms. At the same time, they combat skin concerns such as psoriasis and eczema.
The staff also administers skincare services. Treatments range from microdermabrasion to oxygen facials and blemish-removal treatments. Clients can complement a newly refreshed complexion with one of many alternative-wellness therapies, such as acupuncture, massage, reflexology, or a warm bask beneath far-infrared lights.
Within soothing blue walls dappled with vibrant lime-green accents, pHresh Spa and Wellness Club's experienced team rejuvenates and restores radiance to weary bodies with spa services. The balmy wood confines of pHresh's private sauna envelop guests in sweat-inducing infrared waves, which usher toxins from bodies to promote supple, even-toned skin. Physiques sore from boxing confrontational shadows can revel in ache-erasing kneads and soothing oils employed during holistic massage therapy, and loose epidermal exteriors tighten after proper coaxing from radio frequencies used in body-contouring treatments.
Before or after appointments, clients can relax in a lounge distinguished by cushy couches, modern decor, and a crackling fireplace.
T&Y Beauty Spa stands as an oasis from the bustle of downtown, where clients can snag speedy beauty treatments between shopping jaunts or reap hours of pampering to replenish their spirits and invigorate their skin. The spa's aestheticians draw out healthy complexions with three tiered facials that gradually ramp up their effects with massages, customized masks, and face-firming serums. Permanent makeup applications boost facial radiance even further with smudge-free lip- and eye-defining flourishes, and eyelash extensions, mani-pedis, and waxing treatments also lend elegance to weary exteriors. Meanwhile, in treatment rooms far removed from the annoyances of work, bills, and foot-traffic pileups, therapists soothe overtaxed muscles and frayed minds with relaxation massages for individuals and couples.
Wading barefoot through a muddy swamp has no noteworthy health benefits, but Footopia's mud footbaths are a different story. Infused with natural herbs and crystals, they rejuvenate toes and draw toxins from the body. The holistic health facility’s team specializes in these treatments as well as other foot-centric services. During foot reflexology, they apply pressure to specific points on the feet that may correspond with other parts of the body to improve one’s overall well-being. Footopia'a highly trained massage therapists can also ply the whole body with deep tissue kneads that are more effective than rubbing your back against your barn.
As owner of Beautiful Minds Wellness Centre, Vicky Rong leads a team of practitioners well-versed in traditional Chinese medicine, massage, and mental healthcare. Many of her staff members honed their holistic skills at Chinese institutions such as Guangzhou First People’s Hospital and Fuzhou Pingtang Hospital, and all of them are certified to practice their healing arts in British Columbia. The centre's general healthcare programs help patients deal with chronic and acute pain, weight loss, and emotional issues. The wellness program, on the other hand, focuses on treatments that keep bodies fit and healthy. Acupuncture sessions are among the centre's popular spa offerings, given their effectiveness in rejuvenating skin and popping the balloons that little kids keep hitting you with.
After earning her CIDESCO international aesthetics diploma, Maria Schianni spent more than 14 years in the beauty industry. Today, she and her seasoned aestheticians at Piel Mia Skin Care Clinic buttress careworn faces with nonsurgical face-lifts and collagen facials. They also embellish features with makeup applications, lash perms, and brow shaping and tinting. Some technicians clear away unwanted fuzz with waxing and electrolysis, and others cosset paws with mani-pedis and paraffin-wax treatments. The salon also keeps stylists on staff to trim the hair that grows slowly—creeps ever so slowly—from your skull.
