Balance. On a macro level, it keeps nature thriving. On a micro level, it helps bodies stay happy and healthy. The clinicians at iSilhouette Niagara Falls understand this need for a holistic approach to wellness.

The charming The Petite Retreat Day Spa calls to mind an old English Tudor home that is anachronistically occupied by a team of licensed aestheticians. Working efficiently, the aestheticians infuse faces with vitamins and minerals, gently smoothing down fine lines with the aid of an ultrasound machine. They scrub away dead skin with the help of organic brown sugar and sea salts blended with essential oils, wax away unwanted hair, and cover bodies with airbrush tans.
Being beautiful sometimes requires a little extra help, which is where the technicians at The Body Spa come in. They keep bodies looking their best with a variety of high-tech devices, including a Qi-Light light-therapy device and a laser that tackles unwanted tattoos, spider veins, and skin blemishes. Galvanic high-frequency treatments lift sagging facial muscles, and oxygenation equipment helps stimulate blood flow to combat ailments such as poor circulation and high blood pressure. The Body Spa’s aestheticians can also rejuvenate faces with Skin Essence organic products.
Sense of Beauty degrimes digits with en Vogue nail products and soothing appendage services for both men and women. A 40-minute Handyman's manicure ($39.95) eases overworked claws by soaking palms and fingers in a paraffin ointment before an experienced technician employs en Vogue lime and coconut cream to massage away stress caused by clutching ice-cream cones too tightly. Nails resting at the bottoms of well-worn legs are pampered throughout a one-hour Heavy Duty pedicure ($59.95) as a hot-stone massage and quality creams calm aching stems. Sublime colours and plush chairs envelop customers as they nibble on a complimentary snack or sip specialty teas. Though these treatments are male friendly, handywomen can also benefit from the soothing care without the usual burden of wearing a Groucho Marx disguise.
Lewiston was one of western New York's earliest settlements, dating back to the 1600s. Today, its quaint streets are lined with antique stores and art galleries. Just a 10-minute drive from the hotel, a handful of wineries makes up the Niagara Wine Trail, best known for its ice wine, a sweet dessert varietal made from frozen grapes.Niagara Falls rages about 10 minutes south of the hotel. Each second, 600,000 gallons of water cascade over the brink, sending a cool mist into the air. Come winter, this mist frosts the evergreen trees in the Niagara Falls State Park, transforming the area into a real-life Fortress of Solitude. Old Fort Niagara stands atop a bluff overlooking Lake Ontario about 6 miles north of the hotel. The famous French and Indian War site is now a state park featuring a museum with engaging exhibits, military artifacts, and reenactments.
