Shiatsu and LaStone therapist of Transense Healing Arts Holistic Centre employs two distinct therapy treatments to help clients reduce pain and discomfort. She uses her knuckles, thumbs, palms, knees, and elbows as instruments of relaxation, drawing from shiatsu techniques and Japanese-style acupressure to pinpoint and expunge stress. Alternatively, she uses heated basalt rocks formed from volcanic lava during LaStone therapy, loosening up knotted muscles.
Her experience stems back to the Aveda Institute in Victoria, B.C., where she graduated from in 1998 in esthetics. Since 2000, she has added LaStone therapy to her repertoire, which allows her to stimulated the autonomic nervous system and increase oxygen in the body. Her subsequent interest in shiatsu led her to Shiatsu School of Canada, which enables her to continue her journey of educational growth through her daily practice.

For Susan Flanagan, the Revue Cinema was almost a lost cause. Back in 2006, the theatre had all but shuttered its doors, and was on the brink of closing down for good. Susan hit the streets and pounded the porches in the neighborhood, sold "Save the Revue" t-shirts and buttons, wrote press releases, and did just about everything in her power to raise enough money to keep the theater going. In the processes, she effectively recruited a battalion of volunteers—Revue Film Society—who not only helped with funding, but dedicated their collective manpower to help clean, paint, and even create new art deco light fixtures for the theater for its grand re-opening.
Today, Revue Cinema—a not-for-profit theatre—screens films that range from blockbuster hits to cult classics. In addition to showing new releases, the staff arranges a series of cultural programs such as Silent Sundays, where live piano accompaniment adds vim to North American and European films from the 1910s and 1920s. And in addition to the movies, the snack bar sets the bar for other theatres by selling organic juices and vintage-style pop and candy.
Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar rewards those who pay attention, because the details are where its treasures are hidden. You’ll begin to notice them everywhere—in the house spices and symmetrical searing of the filet mignons, in the surreal bend of the martini glasses, in the fresh-picked Ontario berries dotting the desserts. Though steak remains Wildfire’s cornerstone, overly dogmatic carnivores risk missing out on the barramundi fish drizzled in lemon-lime butter sauce. The servers can find a counterpoint to any dish amongst its bottled ocean of wine from Canada, France, Italy, the U.S., and Portugal.
Most of Best of Toronto’s favorite details, however, were found in Wildfire’s urban-chic decor. Walls of weathered wooden planks—illuminated by sleek rail lighting and adorned with dusky cityscapes—lend a polished-yet-rustic vibe to the high-ceilinged dining room. The simple glass lanterns overhead and the flickering candles at each table cast a sensuous glow perfect for romance or concealing the fact that your date is a scarecrow.
