A busy day is the usual for a Torontonian, which is why we value places to wind down. Luckily this rambunctious city has the perfect hideaways to offer a highly needed space to tune out of the busy streets and our busy lives. Making spa day something monthly can impact your day to day life significantly. While being an obvious de-stresser, the spa has a history of improving confidence and self-esteem. Many services provided in a spa are also meant to detoxify. A highly necessary ritual after a week of morning coffees and on-the-go lunches.

To help you get on track towards a more relaxed life, we’ve researched three Toronto Spa’s that offer exactly what we need.

Elmwood spa

Located Downtown Toronto in a beautiful historic building, Elmwood Spa is made up of four floors of endless treatment with hours that suit a busy schedule.

Elmwood offers steam rooms, facials, manicures and pedicures.

Stillwater Spa

Stillwater is one of Toronto’s most frequented spas, located downtown in the Hyatt Hotel. Home to 17 treatment rooms, and fully equipped with cabanas, steam rooms, and even a jacuzzi fireplace combo.

Make your stay better by getting a 90 minute Swedish Massage or a Milk and Honey wrap meant to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Four Seasons Spa

The Four Seasons Spa is best to go to in the day due to the enormous windows that drench sunlight into the facility. Composed of 17 treatment rooms, steam rooms, hair salons and more.

To have an experience that will benefit you in the long run, indulge in one of their three facials. The European Classic uses a Hungarian moor mud rich with minerals that fix impurities within the skin.

You will thank yourself for taking that extra time.
