Rhythm Spa lavishes patrons with an array of services in its cozy surrounds marked by exposed brick walls and vibrant red hues. Pamperees can sip on a goblet of complimentary herbal tea as toes tenderize in a luxurious bath of almond, honey, and milk during the one-hour spa mani-pedi. Postsoaking, an expert nail whisperer deftly exfoliates, files, and polishes or buffs hands and floor hands into sparkling digital calculators. Those opting for a 30-minute or one-hour massage can unwind with the Nordic kneads of a Swedish massage or the strokes of a relaxation massage. A hot-stone massage, meanwhile, employs balmy boulders to loosen up shoulders stiff from overstarched iron shirts.
Alternatively, exteriors undergoing a full-body chocolate wrap bask in tranquility as an aesthetician paints warmed moor mud and essence of cocoa across bodies with deft brushstrokes, adorning blank bone paper with abstract shapes and realistic renderings of melted candy bars. Once wholly cloaked in a dessert-worthy patina, physiques get swaddled in a soft, warm blanket to coax away any residual tension. As an added bonus, skulls soporific from cacao indulgence get a 15-minute scalp massage to leave brainwaves as refreshed and agile as an energy-drinking Olympian.
When entering Rhythm Spa, guests are greeted by a glossy upright piano. The instrument is a symbol of the elegance and comfort found throughout the expansive 2,500-square-foot space, anchored by private, themed treatment rooms that have been recently renovated. The spacious couples room makes the perfect environment for lovebirds looking to share a massage or enemies looking to bitterly stare at each other for an hour. The wide range of aesthetic services also includes an infrared sauna, facials with Thalgo skincare products, and custom pedicure chairs with jacuzzi sinks. Pre- or post-treatment, clients can enjoy a treat from the organic cafe, which serves espresso, coffee, handcrafted teas, as well as locally made vegan and gluten-free desserts.
Spa owner Maria is a perfectionist, according to a Toronto City Gossip columnist, who goes on to praise the spa’s “demanding standards of cleanliness” and “perfect” eyebrow threading. To help offset the costs of education, Rhythm Spa offers discounted student pricing on waxing, facials, and massage.
