Updated on Oct 28, 2021

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!

A Russian Sweat, in Magog

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!

Peachy softness for your skin, in Bromont

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!

Revitalizing Weightlessness, in Eastman

The retreats and packages are designed around an all-encompassing approach to balance and health. Guests have access to naturopathic health checkups and can benefit from the services of passionate professionals (such as kinesiologists and naturopaths), as well as attend lectures and activities that teach them how to take care of their bodies and minds; forest bathing, experiencing Qi-Gong and Essentrics, and much more. Spa Eastman is situated in a stunning natural environment and the food – Tonique Cuisine® - provides diners with an extraordinary culinary experience. Our sophisticated dishes are colourful and tasty. They help to promote a good night’s sleep, leaving you bursting with energy!

A Jewel of Care, in Sherbrooke

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!

Beauty and Relaxation, in Ayer’s Cliff

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!

Festive Mud, in Saint-Ignace-de-Stanbridge

At Euro-Spa applying mud to your bodies as a couple is a comforting and festive care. 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?
