Voted the best city spa in 2010 by Chatelaine, sweetgrass spa seizes luxury services back from the exfoliated fists of men by offering its therapeutic treatments to only women in a comfortable environment. During an express facial, sweetgrass spa’s friendly estheticians remove the clutter clogging clients’ skin vents while moisturizing and revitalizing the skin with a coat of day cream to leave visitors with a fresh-off-the-lot new face shine. The express massage expediently delivers an equally comprehensive bodily renewal. Spa therapists delicately handle wearied muscles of the back, neck, and shoulders, extracting tension and knocking it unconscious with brass-knuckled fury. Arrive early to enjoy the indulgent spa amenities at sweetgrass, including a whirlpool, an infrared sauna, and an ozonated pool with an underwater treadmill, as well as towel service and a guest change room with lockers containing spa attire.
Pretty Organic Cosmetics nature-nurtures skin with a line of organic, biodegradable, and sustainable products, made without the use of harsh chemicals or animal testing. Heal your head's hide with an item from Pretty's face-care collection, made with plant and herbal extracts. The cedar soap ($8) refreshes skin with a woodsy scent reminiscent of days spent as a mountaintop hermit, and the triple-rose facial tonic ($16) brings misty hydration and rejuvenation to skin that's been schoolyard-bullied by the sun. Pretty's body-care products, crafted from pure essential oils and 100 per cent botanical ingredients, deliver similar dermal decadence. Sheath your skin in the silky serenity of the Flower Goddess soap ($6), infused with rose petals, jasmine flowers, lavender, puppy kisses, and sweet magnolia, or spa up your backyard wading pool with the purifying blend of the sweet cocoa-and-mint mineral bath salt ($12).

Licensed massage therapist and registered yoga teacher Quinn Caya has dedicated his life to sharing his extensive awareness of the dynamic relationship between structure and energy through the practice of yoga, massage, ping pong, and Reiki therapy. The Swedish is the most popular way to improve circulation and erase tension, and the shiatsu is a needle-less way to reap the benefits of Chinese acupuncture by awakening the body's energy meridians. If you’ve been pounding the pavement in preparation for a marathon or enduring rigorous training, recharge with the sports massage, designed to enhance endurance and reduce recovery time. Quinn's widespread knowledge of the human body is projected through his hands during a specialized Reiki therapy session, a form of palm therapy and touch delivered electro-magnetic treatment that transfers healing energy into the patient, and has been known to disorient migrating birds.
From head to toe, inside and out, the attentive staff at You're So Vain Salon and Spa cossets clients with therapeutic services. Stylists twist and tease locks into vibrant new styles and nail techs, meanwhile, fortify fingers and toes with gobs of mortar or long-lasting OPI color. Aestheticians give attention to epidermal layers with chemical peels and DermaSweep MD—a facial that sweeps away dead skin cells with topical solutions, vacuum pressure, and a precision brush-tip exfoliation. The spa treatments, including hot-stone massages and teeth whitening, can be combined into packages, with bubblegum-scented options for Little Girls spa parties.
High-school pals Andrea Veres and Christina Yeates drew inspiration from their own friendship when they opened The Waxing Studio & Spa in 2006, treating skin with the same care they give each other. Their approach is low-tech and gentle, and the airy spa's sleek, black-and-robin's-egg-blue rooms stay chic and tidy with nontoxic, earth-friendly cleaners. Light streams into the quiet massage rooms, where therapists demonstrate camaraderie during tandem and couples massages, before showing commitment to the earth by laundering towels in high-efficiency machines.
Aestheticians gently balance complexions with bronze scales and Hungarian skincare products from Szép Elét, an organic line rich in active ingredients and aromatic botanicals. The Waxing Studio & Spa’s defuzzing specialists created a stage between a traditional bikini wax and a Brazilian—jokingly dubbed the "B.I.T." or Brazilian In Training—to ease women into skimpier swimsuits without cutting support for bacon consumption, and eyebrow specialists will shape arches for men and women with tweezers or the ancient art of threading.
To support their community, the staff invites local vendors to display their handmade jewelry, paintings, and purses in the boutique alongside Szép Elét tonics to take home.
