Owner Lindsay Mackinnon opened Our Times Harbour View Spa four years ago to ply her trade as an aesthetician, but her favorite part of the job isn't any service she performs. It's hearing people's stories. She doesn't skimp on the service front either, gathering talent such as Lorraine Wilkins, an award-winning UK-born stylist, to keep her spa on the forefront of style. Her services span the whole body, boasting manicures and pedicures for extremities, massages for the back, and facials for faces or highly animated hands.
Skilled aestheticians at Nurturing by Nature Day Spa take a holistic approach to beauty with organic, soothing manicures and pedicures. Energizing lemongrass oil anoints fingertips as an aesthetician buffs nails to a natural smoothness. Unruly cuticles get a trim while moisturizing serums penetrate calluses to soften hands. During the organic pedicure, clients can relax in a water-jet pedicure chair while aestheticians remove calluses and spruce cuticles. The one-hour mini mani-pedi concludes with an application of Zoya polish, and the two-hour signature mani-pedi continues with an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells and illuminate brighter, healthier skin. During signature treatments, aestheticians massage hands, feet, and lower legs to relax the muscles before brightening digits with a slick nail colour that's vivid but won't cause fingers to blind bowls of popcorn.
While massage therapist and reiki master Sherri Smith bears certifications in a broad range of techniques, her singular goal is to heal her clients holistically. Her repertoire of alternative treatments includes yoga, reiki classes, and Ayurvedic massages that balance the body’s energy centers. A raindrop technique of the Lakota Indians involves applying organic essences to the soles and spine to heal muscular issues and recharge any accidentally swallowed batteries. Through these treatments, Sherri can help her clients realign their bodies, spirits, and minds without unnatural chemicals or fashionable gimmicks.
