A serenity-inducing haven nestled among the historic buildings of Markham’s Unionville Village neighbourhood, Unionville Spa employs a cadre of experienced aestheticians to pamper and refresh weary physiques. Aestheticians gussy up skin and soothe aches using Phytomer products forged from marine-based active ingredients such as seaweed and algae pilfered from the breakfast tables of inattentive tadpoles. The staff’s dedication to beauty practices that simultaneously rejuvenate patrons’ minds, bodies, and spirits is evidenced in their menu of services that includes lavish facials with full-body pretreatment rituals, and a Thai-inspired Sea Holistic body treatment that stimulates the body’s energy lines. Though Unionville Spa specializes in treatments for women, a gentlemen’s club coaxes forth handsomeness via regimens tailored to address blokes’ epidermal needs and to smoothen faces for easier beard adhesion.
