A spa experience tailored to you. While Spas have always incorporated wellness into their treatments, a new level of innovation is changing the way we unwind. They are taking a more mindful approach to health, and, as a result, our favourite go-to spas are undergoing some soul-searching to provide a more lasting experience.
Backed by years of well-documented benefits, Toronto spas are adding alternative and biotherapies to their already impressive self-care offerings.
WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN SELF-CARE + WELLNESS
We’ve know that self-care is crucial for maintaining healthy relationships. Good mental health is essential for building and maintaining relationships. Individuals who neglect self-care are more likely to experience relationship problems. This is because neglecting self-care can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. Conversely, individuals who practice self-care are more likely to have healthy relationships, as they are better equipped to manage their emotions and communicate effectively with others.
Finally, self-care is crucial for preventing burnout. Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion that can result from chronic stress. A common problem in today’s fast-paced society, it can lead to a range of mental health problems. However, self-care practices such as taking regular breaks, engaging in hobbies and interests, and practicing relaxation techniques can help to prevent burnout and promote good mental health.
THE NEW INNOVATIONS THAT CAN UNVEIL A NEW YOU
While a good pedicure feels great, these new treatments are designed to go beyond the surface. Think hypnosis, food sensitivity tests, light therapy or even a psychic reading. That’s part of the new menu unveiled recently at The Wellness & Bio Bar at the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel.
After six months of rigorous training, staff are ready to create a lasting impression. The team couldn’t be more excited to share the new program.
“At the Spa at Four Seasons Toronto, I want to ensure guests know living well is a lifestyle, not a trend. With the introduction of the Wellness & Bio Bar, we’re providing our guests with scientifically proven evidence-based treatments tailor-made to each guest’s wants, needs and desires. We’re excited to provide them with some of the only biohacking services in Toronto that will notably improve their health as they make incremental changes to their bodies and overall lifestyles.”Carlos Calvo Rodriguez, Senior Spa Director at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto
We’re most excited about the Four Seasons’ new LPG Endermologie skin treatment. Picture a mechanical massage aimed to improve skin quality, promote lymphatic drainage and reduce cellulite.
Meanwhile, the stunning Hammam Spa by Cela has also incorporated some high-tech inclusions to its spa menu.
A soak in their steam room prior to any treatment is a must. Light therapy is built into the room, with eucalyptus wafting in to invigorate and restore.
But the Jet Peel treatment in their medispa rooms offers spa enthusiasts a true dose of the future of facials. Using patented technology, Jet Peel facials are designed to go beyond the surface layers of the skin, deploying hydration and antioxidants to where your skin truly needs them.
It’s like a mini-power washer for your face, with zero downtime and maximized results.
Also popular is the Elmwood Spa’s infrared treatment, Seaflora Invigorating Cellulite Treatment. After a 15-minute infrared sauna experience, a seaweed body polish and application of Seaweed Body Gel are applied. The treatment targets cellulite tones the body and minimizes fluid retention.
