Abenz Day Spa & Boutique displays a range of environmentally friendly products made by the Hungarian company Éminence. Shot through with organic and hand-picked fruits, vegetables, and herbs sourced from small farms, the chemical-free serums safely cleanse and rejuvenate skin during four relaxing one-hour facials chock full of grapefruit enzymes, cocoa, and paprika.
Yet the nourishing and acne-fighting treatments are only part of what Abenz Day Spa & Boutique has to offer. Staff members also man the serene spa room, where they dissipate stress, tension, and awkward silences between shoulder blades with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Meanwhile, skin specialists use warm wax to free limbs, body, and face of superfluous hair. Hints of mango, raspberry, and chocolate scents flood the nail corner, where diligent techs spend up to an hour exfoliating skin and polishing nails during mani-pedis. Free underground parking is available to shelter clients' automobiles from the elements.
When Lindsay Walker opened Ascent Wellness & Aromatherapy, it was important to her that the spa would use only all-natural and fair-trade products, from brands such as Seaflora. Made locally on Vancouver Island, Seaflora is a blend of seaweed and other organic botanicals that help reverse the signs of aging without using any chemicals. Besides facials, clients may request a waxing session, a manicure with vegan nail polish, or a soothing aromatherapy massage performed in a private treatment room. Deep-tissue and hot-stone massages are also available.
In the summer of 2003, Nancy Mudford made her dream of owning a small business come true by transforming an old video store into her own full-service spa. Inspired by the sun-soaked hillsides of rural France, she renovated the space with the help of interior designer and a bunch of painstakingly selected Benjamin Moore paints. Now done over in an elegant Old-World colour palette, the beautiful spa houses a team of certified technicians whose specialized skincare talent has helped the spa win numerous awards. The aestheticians’ microdermabrasion treatments, when paired with facial peels, work to thoroughly exfoliate dead skin cells from faces and unearth new, brighter complexions. During spa pedicures, techs beautify clients’ toes and vestigial fins with Footlogix, OPI, and other brand-name products.
