Amethyst Spa & Salon was founded in 1973 by Yvonne Wilson, who continues to own and operate the center. A licensed aesthetician and holistic practitioner, she has carved out a space
where creature comforts tend to the spirit while practitioners tend to the body. Upon arrival, clients are invited to slip into a comfy full-length robe and sip on a complimentary beverage. After treatments, they can relax in the lounge, where soft music, a fireplace, and beverages prolong the effects of their treatment and delay a return to the outside world and to still-unfinished Yahtzee games in their 19th hours.
Of course, it's what happens between those bookend spa moments in that has kept Amethyst in business for more than 40 years. Clients
indulge in a deluxe power repair facial, its fruit enzyme exfoliants coaxing radiant colours from the skin. Or, they revel in a warm seaweed and mineral mud wrap, during which botanical extracts send aromas into the air while
nourishing ingredients work their magic. The spa also features manicures and pedicures, a salt cave, and
a thermo acupressure massage bed.
