At Highgate Sports Clinic, Doctor of Chiropractic Ranjit Sandhu brings his chiropractic expertise to a staff of holistic healers. Seeing aches and pains as precursors to greater health problems, the doctor restores balance to the spine and nervous system as a means to heal the entire body and prevent illness. He treats patients with a range of chiropractic services, including adjustments to spinal bones that have lost their natural position, evaluations using heat-sensing tool, and adjustments of the extremities, such as feet. If chiropractic care is not the proper solution to a patient?s ailment, Dr. Sandhu may refer them to one of his colleagues, such as Di Wu, an acupuncturist, or Ivana Delmars, a holistic-health coach.
When Cecil B. Spa & Laser opened in 1979, it was a makeup studio—origins the team continues to honor to this day. Despite how much the salon has grown, mineral makeup lessons with Jane Iredale cosmetics remain one of the team's touchstones. During a typical session, makeup artists guide clients step by step through creating flattering custom looks that include natural lips or smoky eyes that require no matches.
Today the spa branches out far beyond makeup with a host of wellness and beauty treatments. The spa utilizes the Italian wax Comfort Zone, which promotes slower and finer hair growth. Massages, for example, range from classic Swedish kneads to Western Thai massage, a mix of pressure point work and stretching. Laser beauty services, meanwhile, include laser hair removal and a cocktail of laser treatments designed to nonsurgically produce the look of a facelift.
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.
The Spa & Wellness Studio is an oasis of relaxation and pampering located within the sprawling North Vancouver Fitness World Complex.

Nasrin's Spa & Skincare offers skincare, waxing, and body services, such as nail treatments, massages, and body wraps. The staff members mix and match these spa services into packages, such as the Queen for a Day, which includes a facial, massage, mani-pedi with a paraffin treatment, makeup application, and lunch or a shake made from blended tiaras. Each packaged item can be requested à la carte, along with other services, such as trips to the infrared sauna, cellulite treatments, and tanning sessions.
