Natural Reflextions borrows from Mother Nature's innate sense of style with its decorative plants, earthy tones, and fragrant candles, convincing visitors they've stepped inside a forest sanctuary. The zen-like ambience pervades the spa's treatment rooms, which overlook rock gardens dappled with trees and the fountain of youth where Sophia Loren resides. Beneath billowing cloths hanging from the ceiling, a team of relaxation experts administers massages and skincare treatments inspired by nature's soothing, curative elements.
The spa's menu of services whisks visitors onto a cloud of relaxation with its seaweed body wraps that swaddle physiques in nourishing Seaflora products and footbaths that reward the hardest working jack-o'-lantern stompers. Skin reaches its aesthetic peak with facials using anti-aging Dermalogica serums and waxing that ousts unneeded bodily fleece. Handcrafted and fair-trade items—including teapots, jewellery, and natural soaps—can be discovered in the spa's boutique, encouraging guests to support the local artisans from which they came.
A sprawling complex where natural beauty and holistic medicine converge, Oasis Rejuvenation Centre & Spa welcomes guests to relax and recharge. The wellness team is composed of director Teresa Yu, a registered nurse, and a group of specialists in the healing field. Massage therapists and reiki masters tend to sore muscles and low spirits, and acupuncturists practice their trade with compassionate focus. Aestheticians, meanwhile, facilitate external beauty with facials, mani-pedis, and waxing. In addition to private rooms for treatments and lavish suites for overnight stays, Oasis boasts open fields and forests perfect for regaining strength and releasing everyday stress by twirling as fast as possible.
When it comes to beauty treatments, the team at Soft Touch Day Spa & Laser doesn't just stick to the classics. Instead, they're committed to keeping up with new technology?so it's no surprise that their service menu seems to include almost everything.
For example, the spa's aestheticians perform radio-frequency skin rejuvenation in addition to airbrush makeup applications. Massage therapists reduce tension with reflexology treatments, and laser technicians zap away hair or help to improve skin tone. Out in the salon, nail technicians massage limbs and count toes free of charge during mani-pedis.
Valley Wellness Centre's registered massage therapists treat an array of client back ailments in 60-minute massages. At the start of initial treatment sessions, therapists plan a recommended backscape remodelling after reviewing their patient's health history. Depending on each client's health needs and dependence on medieval armour, therapists may knead tense joints, muscles, and tendons using a combination of specialized modalities. Therapists employ back-melting blends of myofascial release, Swedish or Thai massage, and hot-stone placement. Each of the centre's three therapists specializes in different areas of massage, enabling them to treat specific ailments from factors such as stress, injury, and cubism.
During LipoLaser treatments, the practiced technicians at Body Forming Clinic use low-level laser paddles designed to reduce fatty tissue on specific areas of the body. Approximately as painful as a kiss from an oversized butterfly, the non-invasive treatment requires no surgery or recovery time and is Health Canada approved. After consulting with a counselor about trouble spots’ checkered pasts, patients relax comfortably while a trained assistant applies two treatment paddles on the skin for 10 minutes at a time. Basking in wavelengths of light, fat cells bid adieu to resident padding and release it into the lymphatic system, allowing the cells to shrink and finally buy the velour catsuit they’ve been eyeing. The treatment, which can last up to 50 minutes, culminates in 15 minutes of cross-training to keep cells on their toes. Body Forming Clinic’s staff explains the benefits of weight-bearing exercise to maintain the laser’s results and then introduces patients to the relaxation of a 30-minute infrared sauna session.
