A full-service, multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility, Viva Wellness & Rehab houses doctors and therapists from a range of disciplines together under one roof. In the recently renovated facility, chiropractors, and physiotherapists practice alongside licensed massage therapists, acupuncturists, and podiatrists. The practitioners boast extensive training: massage therapists have completed 24- to 36-month programs at CMTO-accredited schools, and chiropractors and physiotherapists have been in practice for more than 10 years. Viva also outfits clients with health-related products, including supplements, TENS units, and custom-made orthotics, which slip perfectly into sneakers and snorkeling fins.
Bobby Boroujerdi has sharpened his shears in Toronto's salon scene for 25 years. For 5 of those years, he was even a key stylist for the Miss Universe competition. Today, he's drawn on this experience to open his own eponymous salon. While sipping on coffee or tea in the elegant waiting area, clients watch Bobby and his highly trained stylists manufacture cutting-edge dos with products by Dermalogica and Lacasta Skin Care Products. Stylists work beneath shelves brimming with facial elixirs, aromatherapy oils, and paraffin wax for beautifying hands after putting on puppet shows based on Indiana Jones.
Amid Stratique Hair Salon & Spa's marigold walls, stylists chop locks after weaving in golden highlights, and aestheticians pamper faces with aromatic Yon-ka skincare products, which use essential oils, plant extracts, and marine-based ingredients to heal skin. Private treatment rooms await laser hair-removal clients and those who opt to contour bodies with VelaShape fat-reduction devices. No matter what services patrons opt for, they can take advantage of free consultations to learn more about their treatment and get a recommendation for a good book.
Toronto Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic offers an integrative approach to weight loss and healthy weight management, including nutrition consultations, nutrition and botanical supplements, and lifestyle coaching. To support patient efforts, the clinic is equipped with VelaShape and Turbo Vibe, an exercise system utilizing vibration technology developed for astronauts. VelaShape reduces cellulite and firms problem areas with an FDA-approved nonsurgical device that combines bipolar radio frequency, infrared light energy, a vacuum, and mechanical massage.
Patients' eyes and ears unwind amid the clinic’s spa-like decor and soothing ambient music. After complimentary consultations, practitioners perform tests that may include blood work, pH balance, and singing the national anthem while drinking a glass of water. After results are assessed, personalized recommendations are given that can range from massage and acupuncture to supplements and dietary adjustments. The staff can also arrange guided grocery shopping and motivational coaching, and specializes in weight-loss plans for brides and new mothers.
Concerned by the array of contaminants present in today's environment—processed foods, air pollution, secondhand smoke—the practitioners at Hue Spa & Clinic proclaim detoxification to be the most important process you can undertake to ensure your physical health. In that spirit, they perform a focused selection of detoxifying treatments, including deep-tissue massages that filter excess lymph out of muscles the way grizzled old prospectors filter non-prospecting-related comments out of their Twitter feeds. Facials target pore-based impurities, using naturally derived Les Aromes products to not only eliminate blockages but also to dissipate signs of age with active ingredients, such as restorative mimosa flower and antioxidant-rich artichoke extract.
Rather than juggle a full list of spa services, the aestheticians at Xlash focus all their skills on one goal: making the mascara wand obsolete. Using synthetic mink lashes and medical grade adhesive, they bond each extension to the natural lashes one-by-one, instantly making lashes appear longer and thicker. Designed with everyday wear in mind, the extensions are resistant to water and won't weigh down the eyelids, unlike many standard extensions or lash curlers infused with sleeping powder. Similarly, the adhesive is designed to keep extensions stuck to natural lashes for their full cycle, meaning looks can last up to nearly two months or longer for clients who invest in regular touch-ups.
The stylists and spa technicians at Matik Beauty, Hair & Spa pamper their clients from head to hairless toe with a full menu of salon and skin treatments. In addition to standard haircuts and coloring services, they sculpt elegant updos and straighten unruly strands with Zerran's formaldehyde-free, vegan solutions. A full slate of facials and chemical peels softens complexions, and body hair succumbs to the spa’s tag team of waxing treatments, laser sessions, and microscopic lawnmowers.
