The practitioners at Ojus Healthcare all hail from India, where they each earned bachelors' of ayurvedic medicine and surgery (BAMS) degrees. Ayurveda's holistic therapies date back more than 5,000 years and are drawn from ancient Indian holy texts, or Vedas.
Using diagnostic techniques developed long before blood tests or x-ray glasses, the specialists at Ojus examine their patients' eyes, tongue, skin, and pulse to determine their overall constitution during an initial consultation. If toxins seem to be weighing a person down, a five-part panchakarma detox may be recommended. This regimen includes internal and external cleansing by way of warm oil massaged into the skin, ingested, dripped up the nose, and applied over the eyes. A steam box draws impurities out through the sweat glands and soft dough is used to form oil reservoirs on especially troubled areas.
The staff at Solaris Spa offers resort-style spa, anti-aging, wellness, and beauty services for women, men, and children.

The trained technicians and professional aestheticians at York Laser Centre specialize in making their clients' skin look its best. With the aid of the skin-enhancing machines, vascular lesions, acne, sun damage, age spots, and excessive redness can fade from bodily surfaces.

Opened in December 2009, Xhale Beauty Lounge is an upscale salon presenting patrons with scoopfuls of high-quality services and a commitment to eco-friendly practices. The beauty mani-pedi treatments repair and rejuvenate damaged digits with cuticle corralling, nail shaping, scrubs, massage, colour polish, and a concluding aromatherapy hot-towel treatment. Each service takes 45 minutes and uses colourfully hued polish made by CND and SpaRitual. Though fingers are necessary for tracing turkeys and plugging the unsightly hole in the middles of diamond rings, they are also useful barometers of age and refinement. When prospective employers and old flames gaze at a person’s finger docks and the occasionally bared leg hand, well-kempt nails and cuticles send a message of confidence, sophistication, and youth. After a mani-pedi at Xhale Beauty Lounge, your feelers and walkers will proclaim your put-togetherness to the crowds of potentially amorous others and jealous, rough-fingered tree branches.
