From its perch within Beauty Avenue, A.R. Beauty Boutique's roster of beauticians directs passersby to new aesthetic heights with a menu of services for the skin and body. Waxing for a wide range of areas prevents loitering fuzz from encroaching on prime epidermal real estate, and eyebrow tinting adds extra oomph to peepers. Three types of facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments remedy acne and worn-out complexions, and the soothing modalities of an Indian head massage bring comfort to scalps stressed from wearing maltese puppies as hair extensions.
River Spirit Golf Club, host to Canadian Junior Golf Association tournaments and the 2007 CN Canadian Women's Tour, challenges players with three nine-hole courses sprawling across varied prairie terrain affording panoramic views of the Elbow Valley below. Before teeing off, players can prep for the greens with a helpful swing analysis (a $39 value), which uses a motion-sensitive camera and a fast-moving portrait artist to capture each golfer's club-swinging form. Golf Academy instructors then provide an assessment of each client's technique and offer tips for refining it. Armed with this instruction, golfers set out for an 18-hole round on two nine-hole courses (up to an $88 value). The original Spirit Nine lets players launch dimpled orbs down tree-lined fairways of prairie-valley turf, and the Millburn Nine presents an idyllic scene with a wandering creek, natural wetlands, and staff-wielding shepherdesses.
At Qiworks, we combine Medical Qigong, one of the five branches of Chinese medicine, with traditional bodywork. You may choose to work on a specific area that is painful or injured, or receive an overall treatment to balance your Qi, providing optimum wellness.
Carpal tunnel and neck strain are no match for Lisa Chiu. Through both massage and acupuncture sessions, the acupuncturist and Chinese-medicine practitioner relaxes clients, releases their stress, and helps them regain muscle strength. She also strategically places her hair-thin acupuncture needles into faces to boost collagen production, helping clients achieve the sort of youthful appearance previously only attained by taping their kindergarten school photos to their faces.
With a focus on customer satisfaction and green ingredients, Simply Slim's wrap masters swathe clients in solutions designed to burn fatty tissues and sculpt figures.
