Since stress is a part of everyday life, the staff at Crave Massage strives to combat its damaging effects on the body and mind with spa and therapeutic massages. To further promote wellness, they swaddle bodies in blueberry soy wraps during body treatments to contour physiques and perform reflexology treatments–a method of relieving pain throughout the whole body by applying pressure to extremities to release endorphins. They also wax hides hair-free, and pamper men with facials, massages, and fist-bumps designed specifically for them.
Dubbed a sister science of yoga, Ayurveda is an ancient Indian healing practice. It seeks to maintain balance in the body and mind by promoting healthy lifestyle choices and nutrition best suited to the practicer's specific constitution, or dosha, as well as bodywork that recalibrates off-kilter energy levels. Similar to traditional Chinese medicine, it views each person as a whole, and its treatments are customized as such. Okanagan Ayurveda focuses on providing these balancing Ayurvedic treatments, but the center also offers private and semi-private Ayurvedic yoga classes following their health assessment, life coaching, and wellness workshops.
The bodywork experts at FitZen Massage focus on creating custom treatments that address each of their clients' unique needs. They care for humans of all ages and work closely
with other healthcare providers to bolster healing and pave the path to health. Available services extend well beyond tradition massage to include float therapy, life coaching, and reiki energy work.

Despite a lifelong fascination with the intricacies of human anatomy and physiology, it took a horse to trigger Kim Hubicka's interest in massage therapy. She first noticed the benefits of massage on the dressage horses she rode in high school, and she was inspired to begin studying the practice. Considering this jump from equine to human massage, Kim's philosophy that "massage is good for everyone" seems especially fitting.
With extensive training and certification in six modalities, Kim can treat overstressed muscles with calming Swedish strokes or jump-start the body's natural healing processes with deep-tissue, athletic, or European lymph-drainage techniques. These assorted modalities both relax the body and boost its circulation. Add-ons such as heating pads and essential oils further improve relaxation more effectively than a nap on a pile of fluffy kittens.
The team at Amora Day Spa makes it easy to take a quick spa getaway, and return to the outside world with glowing skin and vibrant nails. The zen-like spa's six licensed aestheticians invite clients for efficient trips into their relaxing private treatment rooms; once inside, the most stressful thing you'll have to do is choose from the many spa treatments. Stretch out inside a private earth-toned suite for full body exfoliation with Himalayan salts, or ease down onto a massage table for an aromatherapy massage. Clients can choose from a series of personalized facials, selecting the components and techniques that target skin issues ranging from acne to signs of aging. The spa also offers detoxifying treatments, rejuvenating body wraps, and signature mani-pedis.
