Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Judging by the innovative treatments they offer, our region’s health centres, although they have the same wellness goals, distinguish themselves from one to the other!
At Spa Nordic Station, we say yes to their banya, a traditional sauna we can find in Russian datchas. Your destination is this rustic-type room where the temperature can reach up to 2000 F, and where you’ll be able to totally relax and rid your body of all kinds of toxins. Orange scented water is poured regularly over hot stones to humidify the air. The only one of its kind in Quebec, this intense sweating experience will have you appreciate dipping into the cold water afterwards. Here we come Castel River!
Feel the urge for cocooning? At Amerispa you’ll be quite satisfied. An Ice Cider elixir wrap and a matching scrub, two of their signature treatments, constitute a delicate duo to renew your skin’s beauty. The warm mask helps your body to fill up on vitamins and minerals while the foodie wrap polishes the epiderma. Let the winter come!
Adjacent to the Ripplecove Hotel, Arboressence is a cozy spa with a welcoming fireplace, located inside a rustic-style chalet with, as a bonus, an amazing view of Lake Massawippi. During this harsh season for your skin, choose a facial (there’s one especially for men) and complete your beauty escapade with a back massage or a 30-minute reflexology treatment. Psst! This duo care is truly a great deal!
Do you feel, you’re at the end of your rope? Spa Eastman offers you the opportunity to take some time out with an energizing siesta in their zero-gravity chairs that seem to come straight out of a Star Trek movie. Designed in Quebec, this device, known as the NeuroSpa, synchronizes vibrations, background sounds with the sound of waves in such a way as to allow the central nervous system to totally relax. The experience feels as if you’ve stepped inside a very unique cocoon and you find yourself truly floating!
As you pursue the thermal experience trend, offer yourself a little luxury by going to Strøm Spa Nordique... Among the many beauty options they propose, their anti-age caviar-pearl facial is a must for the season. Designed for tired skin, this mask nourishes, desensitizes and revitalizes; it is especially effective. Finally, the epiderma is plumped up and luminous again, making it a pleasure to see our reflection in the mirror!
At Euro-Spa applying mud to your bodies as a couple or among friends transforms comforting care into a happy reunion! Once you’ve selected a specific type of mud—Mineralizing marine or black moor mud to soothe arthritic or rheumatic pain— you can apply it yourself in the privacy of a room designed with this in mind. After a few minutes, you’re ready to shower. Finally, the time for relaxing has arrived as you settle comfortably in a lounge chair. Sounds inviting, don’t you think?
