Registered massage therapist Katie White melts tension and shoos away muscle stiffness by applying a smorgasbord of circulation-boosting massage techniques. Back pain and achy joints shrink in fear during a half-hour therapeutic massage, which incorporates trigger-point therapy, facial release, hydrotherapy, and strongly worded ultimatums. The relaxation massage, meanwhile, challenges stress to a duel with a gauntlet of Swedish techniques, including long, fluid strokes and the gentle humanism of Scandinavian filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. Additional body-coddling benefits can include improved joint mobility, immune function, and lymph drainage. Upgrades are available for an additional fee.

Eaglequest Nanaimo's par 3 golf course encompasses nine lush, challenging holes accented by towering evergreens and water hazards. Golfers tee up on real grass and then launch golf balls and papier mache zeppelins down tree-lined fairways. Shots soar over hilly terrain and water before trundling toward undulating greens. Clubbers can traverse the pastoral playground and complete a round in 60–90 minutes, giving them the ability to fit a game into a busy schedule. Before hitting the course, golfers can make like a pendulum at the 22-stall driving range, which features opportunities for straightening troublesome slices, improving golf games, and alleviating plumber's elbow. The range also hosts lessons and clinics conducted by CPGA pros for golfers of all abilities.

The Alternative Climbing Gym challenges climbers of all abilities with a 30-foot vertical wall in a 1,500-square-foot facility. Expert instructors put students through the paces of ropeless bouldering, the teamwork of belaying, or top-roping, in which a wall scaler ascends with the help of a rope connected to both the climber and the summit. Each climbing variation at the gym enables bodies to build core strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, and stamina while slapping gravity across the face with a glove. All ages of aspiring mountaineers are welcome to use the facility and modern climbing gear, though belaying’s buddy support requires that sturdy helpers be at least 12 years old. Like the moods of adolescent rock faces, the routes change often.

Adora's team of trained physicians, nurses, aestheticians, and laser gurus rejuvenates complexions and abates damaged epidermises with a plethora of skincare services. Using Physician's Choice chemical peels ($100), skilled skin artisans paint faces with a blend of naturally occurring fruit acids that obliterate dead skin cells, remove the top layer of skin, and leave skin as smooth as an olive-oiled velvet salesman, all with only mild discomfort and no downtime. Meanwhile, trained technicians cleanse faces and apply SkinMedica's Vitalize Peel ($100), a blend of alpha-hydroxy and retinoic acids that helps even out most skin types and fade age spots into oblivion. Clients may experience mild discomfort during the 20-minute procedure and should refrain from skin-irritating activities such as sweating and sweating in a pool of hot sauce for three days following the procedure. Today's Groupon can also be used as a $100 credit toward other services, such as laser hair removal on the upper lip and chin ($110) or bikini line ($150).

VI Fitness?a workout mainstay with a dozen locations peppering Vancouver Island?splits its real estate between coed and women?s only gyms. Coed locations line the floors with a wide variety of strength and stability equipment, free weights, and cardio machines; women?s locations host a similar array of gear but in designs tailored specifically for women. The two gym models are otherwise similar, hosting yoga classes and group exercise courses such as VI Fitness?s signature indoor cycling.

Alternatively, each gym?s team of personal trainers creates customized regimens for patrons with the help of the Polar BodyAge system that measures individual fitness levels. The sessions also motivate athletes and ensure they use proper technique, significantly reducing the risk of injury, overexertion, or the embarrassment of accidentally bench-pressing a treadmill. The on-site child minding watches over exercisers? little ones while secure rental lockers keep personal effects locked up.
