The Rejuvenation Health and Wellness Spa promotes beauty makeovers, but they take it one step further and offer services that address inner well-being as well. Spa pampering is well represented here; owner Natalie White and her staff offers classic deep-cleanse facials, custom aromatherapy body polishes, and mani-pedis for men and women. Exotic bodywork treatments such as the pacific-stone massage and shiatsu meridian massage help to align the body and break down the stress that comes from working all day and running dream marathons all night. And then there are the wellness services: holistic treatments such as chakra balancing, ear candling, and nutritional counseling that promote balance and harmony throughout the body.
The skin and body are the focal points at Maradalla Spa. Aestheticians transform complexions via nourishing facials that cleanse, renew, and banish blemishes. Meanwhile, the spa's massage therapists focus on the muscles and spirits with hot-stone and Swedish massages. In addition, stylists are on hand to craft new dos while manicurists pamper and decorate nails and waxing technicians remove hair from the face and body. Maradella Spa also bundles together its services into wedding packages, which help brides look their best at the altar or under a hailstorm of rice.
Visitors to Brooklin Village Spa shouldn't be fooled by its quaint exterior. The interior may be every bit as welcoming and lovely, but the spa technicians who work there really know their stuff. Aestheticians tend to skin with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, cold-laser therapy, and custom facials, and airbrush specialists bedeck limbs in warm, summery tones without exposing skin to harmful sun or shrink rays. Massages, laser hair removal, nailcare, and waxing round out the list of services.
Housed in a charming Heritage building in downtown Whitby, Elysian Fields Day Spa lives up to its mythological name with a list of skin-centric services that promise rest and respite from life’s daily battles. The arch of the spa’s vintage doorway leads to an interior that blends soothing natural accents into its chic decor. Curls of steam rise from fine china cups filled with aromatic loose-leaf teas, serving as an olfactory prelude to the tactile bliss of a facial, massage, or body scrub. Chandeliers cast their soft glow across the walls of private treatment rooms, where aestheticians put to use knowledge gleaned from ongoing beauty seminars, training in SkinCeuticals products, and lectures from sentient Botticelli paintings. After a pampering mani-pedi or a swift waxing session, linger in the outdoor garden, dine with friends in a room adjoining the spa, or make plans to return on the following Tuesday for Pedicure & Martini Night.
To get an idea of what #hair studio does, it helps to see what it looks like. Inside, there are three private spa rooms, a colour room, a styling space, and a boutique, each space a welcoming room allotted for its respective treatment. Stylists helm the salon section and add on a complimentary blow-dry to all their treatments, from haircuts to colouring. That goes for specialty treatments as well; there's a healing touch therapy head massage and styling, a calming treatment that panders to both the hair and the nerves. The spa side features mani-pedis for the nails, facials and full-body exfoliations for the skin, and hot-stone massages for the muscles. And then there's the boutique, which purveys hair and skin products, jewelry, and accessories to help accentuate the finer points of a new look or a boost a coat hanger's appeal.
