In the early 2000s, Doctor of Chiropractic Guy Bahar of The Posture Clinic began to notice a disturbing trend in the postures of his patients. Heads started to jut forward, upper backs hunched over, and chests caved inward. Dr. Bahar theorized that motions associated with a technology-heavy lifestyle—including slumping in front of computer screens, hunching over to read handheld devices, and lugging around heavy pieces of particle accelerators—was steadily causing the public to develop poor postural habits over time. As a chiropractor, he believed that these habits were interfering with the nervous system in general and the spine in particular, inhibiting healthy nerve function and causing chronic pain or fatigue as a result. His signature posture-correcting regimen can correct these conditions with a number of different treatment modalities, each of which promotes neuromuscular health and encourages patients to maintain a towering posture.
Initial assessments can begin with a battery of imaging scans, which can use thermography, x-rays, or surface EMG scans to gain invaluable insight into the body's structure and function. From there, Dr. Bahar and his staff of therapists can treat patients' particular conditions with muscle-relaxing massages, acupuncture sessions, and chiropractic micro-adjustments that completely avoid twisting the head or the neck.
Saltcave Solana’s powder-dusted cavern looks like a polar bear’s hibernation den, until you notice the lounge chairs. The creatures that dwell here are modern humans, and the wonder that draws them is as old as time itself. Here, they relax amid Himalayan salt crystals, which fill the air with therapeutic properties. As music whisks minds to tranquil states, minerals vaporize themselves into tiny, breathable particles of the tasty mineral, which may ease symptoms of allergies, asthma, and some skin conditions. By infusing the space with negative ions, the saline mist can also help stave off colds and slug invasions. Safe for both children and adults, the cave teems with toys and blankets, which the salt divests of bacteria. The space fits up to eight people, making it a popular venue for yoga and Pilates classes.
Beyond the cave lies an infrared sauna, which helps melt away stress, pain, and toxins as it boosts the heart rate and circulation. Nearby, kneading experts perform Thai massages, gently easing bodies into yoga-like poses designed to dissolve tension, increase joint mobility, and make energy flow freely, like a river stocked with coupons.
Dr. Justin Guy believes in his own rehabilitative power for one simple reason: he's gone through the same treatments himself. After a gruesome injury on the soccer pitch and subsequent failed surgery left him with severe knee damage, Dr. Guy turned to treatments within his own field of study to reduce his pain and reorder his joint. Through this blend of chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and custom orthotic care, Dr. Guy made a full recovery. Now, from the comfort of his Oakville office, he provides patients with the same care and kindness that helped him recapture his own mobility.
Romana Valji and Salima Nazir have been friends for a decade now, and Sanam's Boutique & Salon —named after Nazir's daughter—represents the blossoming of their bond since they emigrated from Pakistan in 2007. The dream began in their homes, where they designed elegant, richly embroidered shirtdresses and gowns. After a family friend announced she was having a baby and needed someone to help manage her fledgling salon, Nazir and Valji fused both businesses into the beauty haven that it is today.
In the bright front room—where lights resembling movie-set lamps spotlight mod black leather chairs—stylists use Goldwell products to create lush, long layers and glamorous blowouts. A semicircular cutout in the far wall reveals a shelf of OPI polish in the nailcare nook, where a cushy pedicure throne presides over a white table with UV lamps for curing Shellac manicures. One room in back reveals racks of Nazir and Valji's flowing, jewel-toned robes, which they encrust with floral-patterned kora and dabka according to their own taste or alter the shape, material, and color to suit their clients' wishes for elegant gowns or bespoke burlap sacks. The other chamber hides a comfortable table for massages and a diamond-microdermabrasion machine used by the staff's aesthetician in tandem with products from the Parisian skincare line Yon-Ka.

Around every corner at Ocean Rehab Streetsville Medical Spa & Wellness Centre there's an opportunity for rejuvenation. A quiet and restful salt cave, say, where clients can breathe in the saturated air to find relief from conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, and allergies. Or a balmy Turkish bath, a humid room made of quartz tiles, where detoxification is encouraged through sweating and body scrubs, before clients are led to a cooling room for a soothing cup of tea. Or perhaps guests find themselves drawn to one of the softly-lit treatment rooms where
massage therapists and acupuncturists wait with
ready hands, eager to help expel toxins, pummel stress, and reinvigorate the mind and body.
And, of course, there's the steam cabinet: a pod-like enclosure that delivers all the benefits of a sauna, and comes equipped with amenities such as body jets, music and phone connections, aromatherapy, a foot massager, and a commemorative keychain.
Adding to their mission to foster health and wellness, Ocean Rehab Streetsville Medical Spa & Wellness Centre regularly supports local charities through donations and massage vouchers raffled off during fund-raisers.
