At Spa Namaste at Richmond Hill Natural Therapies, the scent of aromatherapy oils wafts through the air in and around tropical plants and fireplaces, all arranged according to the principles of feng shui. This design is intended to create a relaxing and positive environment for clients. As music plays, the team of massage therapists, chiropractors, and naturopathic doctors steps in to help clients feel at ease during services that range from organic facials to acupuncture and nutritional counseling. Massage therapies include lomi hawaiian-temple bodywork, which utilizes long, flowing strokes, and Thai massage, a therapy that combines yoga and Ayurveda. Other treatments include craniosacral therapy, which aims to improve how the central nervous system functions, ensuring that humans don’t try to eat with their ears or hear with their mouths.
The laser technicians, aestheticians, and holistic wellness professionals at Elixir Clinical Care tend to the body both inside and out. Medical-grade facial treatments smooth away blemishes, while lasers can either tighten the skin or remove stubble. Physiotherapists and chiropractors help overcome chronic aches and pains, and nutrition coaches help explain which foods can best help you reach goals such as losing weight or winning this year's Beautiful Fridge contest.
At Bayview Village Wellness Centre, the team?s main goal is to both treat present pain and prevent future discomfort through spinal adjustments.
The adjustments release stress from the nerves, balance the body?s structure, and promote muscles that work as harmoniously together as Simon and Garfunkel did before splitting up over a disagreement about whether tomatoes are fruits or vegetables. Bayview?s team reassures patients that the popping sound that can be heard during an adjustment is merely a release of gasses and nothing to be alarmed over.
Though chiropractic care is helpful to all people, it is particularly good for athletes who need help fixing their bodies after an injury. It also can be used to keep bodies properly aligned to prevent injuries.

Formerly a professional in the hospitality industry, Tricia Batliwalla founded Light Side Up as a way to guide others toward self-awareness and a better life outlook through hypnosis. Her journey has led her to seven countries throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, and toward an accreditation from the National Guild of Hypnotists Canada. She draws from all this experience each day in her office, where she eases clients into her process with a private consultation and, if needed, games of telepathic patty-cake. As she works with clients to reveal their needs, she may complement hypnosis with other therapies. In each session, she lulls clients into a deep state of relaxation and plants suggestions aimed at helping them overcome the root of issues such as addictions, hidden phobias, and damaged relationships.
Under the supervision of the Anti-Aging Clinic's doctor, certified technicians help to restore youthful appearances with medical-grade treatments. Staff members take up state-of-the-art technology such as GentleLase hair-removal lasers, DiamondTome microdermabrasion wands, and Tripolar skin-tightening treatments. Other services, however, are as low-tech as it gets: chiropractors, massage therapists, and hypnotherapists work toward mind-body wellness in order to help clients to find comfort, confidence, and the strength to quit pretending their kids' crayons are cigarettes. The clinic—which keeps late-evening and Saturday hours—combines medical professionalism with a spa aesthetic; staff members dress in crisp, hospital-style uniforms, but Egypt-inspired art hangs on the walls alongside the colourful anatomical charts.
