C$69 for a two-hour Spring Blossom Retreat spa package (C$290 value)
- 30-minute lavender body polish
- 30-minute Thai herbal stem massage
- 60-minute Thai herbal stem facial
After a Dead Sea-salt scrub exfoliates away dead skin cells, the lavender body polish uses aromatherapy to relax muscles while moisturizing and nourishing the skin until it’s velvety soft. The massage features organic Thai herbal stems, which are applied to the body so that their oils are pressed into the skin. The oils are meant to decrease inflammation and promote detoxification and pain relief. Clients receive a set of herbal stems to use at home. The Thai facial uses a blend of plant extracts to nourish and hydrate the skin.
Minus 417 Dead Sea Spa
The secret ingredient at Minus 417 Dead Sea Spa is Dead Sea salt, which is infused into many of the spa's skin, body, and nail treatments. Nails soak in the mineral-rich salt during a spa mani-pedi. Bodies benefit from Dead Sea salt's circulation-boosting abilities during a mud mask and a warming massage, where the much-touted element also helps firm, soften, and rejuvenate the skin.
Of course, the spa's experienced aestheticians also rely on other ingredients, including Thai herbs, vitamin A, and Jeunesse Advanced Skin Care products. Clients can choose from more than 20 types of facial treatments or enjoy a massage from a certified therapist capable of harnessing the powers of essential oils, honey, and green tea. The skin experts at Minus 417 are also well versed in a range of advanced aesthetic treatments, including LED light therapy that erases sun damage and IPL hair removal that rids bodies of unwanted hair and freshly sprouted grass.
