Le Petit Spa boasts a relaxing French-country atmosphere, and the certified dermabrasiors who populate its hallways will happily perform the non-invasive procedure with the sensitivity of professional egg-jugglers. A diamond microdermabrasion session touches a diamond-encrusted wand directly to your face to gently scrub away the mask of dead skin to reveal your newly minted, youthful mug. The treatment also includes a thorough pre-clean and a post-procedure moisturizer application to ensure your ready-to-wear face is protected from harmful UV rays and drifting dandelion petals. After the treatment, you'll also get a mineral-makeup touchup with Jane Iredale products to ensure your head is street-ready.
La Raffinage Salon & Spa rains luxurious spa services upon locals like diamond dewdrops on grass blades with clogged pores. During a 90-minute Yon-Ka refinement facial ($95), La Raffinage’s expert aestheticians apply high-quality Yon-Ka products to relax and revitalize the skin, eliminating toxins, oxygenating the skin, and strengthening skin's resistance to the elements. The 60-minute Reiki energy treatment ($85) gives clients access to a Reiki specialist who'll use the ancient healing art to tap into the body’s energy waves. The compassionate practitioner will place hands over the body to unblock stymied energy.

Overseen by the president of the Shiatsu Association of British Columbia, the certified and registered therapists at Angel Hands Wellness lead bodies toward a deeply relaxed state during aromatherapy massages. Sinew soothers enhance strokes by blanketing muscles with plant-extracted essential oils, which work by absorbing into the skin, stimulating the brain via inhalation, and cloaking the body's natural pizza scent. The pleasing aromas claim to deliver benefits including calming the nervous system, improving mood, and easing pain. During the reflexology portion—a practice dating back to before 2000 BC—therapists simulate nerve endings on the feet to target corresponding areas of the body, thereby relieving maladies such as stiff necks or bed head.
