The Spa & Wellness Studio is an oasis of relaxation and pampering located within the sprawling North Vancouver Fitness World Complex.

At The Katwalk Salon, a team of beauty professionals from renowned schools such as Aveda, Vidal Sassoon, Blanche Macdonald, and Dominelli maintains a continuous training schedule to keep up with the latest trends. In addition to Aveda products, hair stylists transform 'dos with Schwarzkopf colour, the Brocato smoothing system, and Great Lengths hair extensions. Staffers pamper nails and skin with naturally derived products and loosen taut muscles with relaxing massages.
The compassionate crew does regular charity work to help out the local community. The salon inspires a luxe environment with rich wood floors, bright red walls, and plush red drapery reminiscent of the light-blocking bedroom curtains of a photosensitive princess.

King Hair Design blends the look and feel of an old-school barbershop with the perks of modern technology and products. With the barber pole spinning quietly outside, the hair artists get to work in the styling space, deftly taming the strands of both male and female clients. The team uses straight razors to neatly remove stubble from male necklines and shears to swiftly transform ladies’ locks before accenting any look with partial highlights, gloss, and toner. To cap off visits, the technicians perform scalp massages or exfoliate facial skin with specially blended masks.
At Rejuvenation Centre, a quartet of holistic healers, comprised of a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and two massage therapists, congregate under one roof to banish pain and promote health with holistic, drug-free techniques. The four specialists each wield different areas of expertise over various areas of the body: massage therapy delivers relaxing pressure to ease tension out of soft tissue, and chiropractic and acupuncture focuses on correcting imbalances of the skeletal and nervous systems. By combining their knowledge, the team helps clients vanquish ailments ranging from headaches to digestive problems to sports injury from being physically forced to play checkers.
As translucent salt pebbles crunch underfoot, music fills the atmosphere of SaltWonder's dimly lit manmade sanctum and sets the tone for a meditative, healing experience. Guests lie back in grey recliners, do yoga, or hum the Battlestar Galactica theme song while the caves' halogenerators crush salt rocks, ionize the particles, and send them careening into the air, where they find refuge in lungs' deep-seated alveoli. More than 80 minerals present in the briny mist help tone complexions, resolve breathing difficulties, and reduce inflammation, exhibiting the healing properties of halotherapy, which has been practiced for centuries. The fairy-tale-like chambers' massive floor-to-ceiling columns—made up of more than 30,000 pounds of imported Himalayan pink and red salt—emit pink light that matches the glow of the craggy stone walls' inlaid amber panels.
