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.
The licensed estheticians at Blue Butterfly Beauty Spa have over 10 years of experience, and use that knowledge to administer rejuvenating treatments using state-of-the-art technology. The Silhouet-Tone LumiFacial turns back the clock with carefully calibrated wavelengths of light that can shrink pores, even skin tone, and smooth away wrinkles. Another high-tech centerpiece, the Code de Beaute Slim T5, combines vacuum massage, ultrasound vibrations, and radiofrequency stimulation to shrink fat cells and increase collagen production.
Abenz Day Spa & Boutique displays a range of environmentally friendly products made by the Hungarian company Éminence. Shot through with organic and hand-picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs sourced from small farms, the chemical-free serums safely cleanse and rejuvenate skin during four relaxing one-hour facials chock full of grapefruit enzymes, cocoa, and paprika.
Yet the nourishing and acne-fighting treatments are only part of what Abenz Day Spa & Boutique has to offer. Staff members also man the serene spa room, where they dissipate stress, tension, and awkward silences between shoulder blades with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Meanwhile, skin specialists use warm wax to free limbs, body, and face of superfluous hair. Hints of mango, raspberry, and chocolate scents flood the nail corner, where diligent techs spend up to an hour exfoliating skin and polishing nails during mani-pedis. Free underground parking is available to shelter clients' automobiles from the elements.
In June of 2012, Shona Shuter took the leap. After many years in the beauty industry, she decided to follow her passions by becoming the new owner of Aquaterra Beauty and Wellness. Under her leadership, Aquaterra was renovated and saw its menu of treatments blossom to include Shona’s favourite luxuries. The end result was a tranquil beauty haven where worries slide away as clients enjoy facials with hand-harvested Seaflora products or surround themselves with the scents of the forest, ocean, or summer during five types of signature massages. Shona is especially excited to offer her guests the Universal Contour Wrap, which works to whittle away at least 6 inches from frames. The body wrap’s clay formula helps tighten and tone physiques while also exfoliating the skin, rendering bodies smooth enough to slip out dollhouse windows unnoticed.
Within soothing blue walls dappled with vibrant lime-green accents, pHresh Spa + 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. And all services include access to the spa's eucalpytus steam room, fitness center, and the hotel's rooftop pool.
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.
