Absolutely Fabulous Urban Spa’s aestheticians assuage stressed skin and muscles during soothing massages and evict impurities and dryness in revitalizing facials. During a one-hour Swedish Relaxation massage, therapists manipulate muscles using traditional long strokes and may bathe skin in aromatic essential oils to ease tension and enable patients to fulfill undercover missions in wildflower gardens. Essential facials bathe an array of skin types in moisturizing formulas for 50 minutes as therapists cleanse, exfoliate, and gently extract impurities. Facialists then administer light massages and drape features in a hydrating mask.
At each couples Hot Retreat, romantic pairs recline side by side while therapists dig deep into muscles and wrestle out knots, melting stiff spines with a spread of hot oil. During the one-hour treatment, spouses or poker buddies clink glasses of juice or frothing champagne. Couples then let heat lift stress in 25-minute infrared-sauna sessions, bathing in infrared light that helps to open skin and evict toxins, enhance circulation, and facilitate weight loss. Patrons release stress from custody while surrounded by ornate gilded furnishings, South Asian tapestries, and low lighting from wall sconces.
Absolutely Fabulous Urban Spa
In 2002, after managing celebrated spas across Vancouver for several years, aesthetician Sandra Bulatovic struck out on her own to build a team of laser technicians and certified body workers trained in a variety of massage modalities. Since then, the expert staff at Absolutely Fabulous Urban Spa has grown to include aestheticians who stand ready to examine complexions before undertaking customized facials, most of which include a mask, extractions, and a post-treatment touchup using Jane Iredale mineral makeup. Nail technicians offer their services as well and are notable for maintaining the highest sanitation standards by letting clients take home the nail file, buffer, and conversation starters used during their manicure. Most recently, the spa was awarded 2nd place in the Laser Hair Removal category of Westeneder.com's "Best of the City 2016" awards.
