Celebrate Canada at Spa Utopia with 100% Canadian Treasures Treatments

If you're a Canadian, you'll know we truly do live in The Best Place on Earth. (If you are a visitor to our country, we hope you'll forgive our sometimes overboard sense of pride...)

To celebrate the birthday of our great country, why not book one of Spa Utopia's unique 100% Canadian Treasures Treatments? These specialized treatments include West Coast Seaweed Journey, Deep Earth Mineral Voyage and Hot Chocolate Bliss.

Canadian Treasures Treatments focus on Canada's abundant and sustainable natural resources of mud, clay, salts and healing West Coast seaweeds. 

West Coast Seaweed Journey

 This treatment begins with a full body exfoliation to prepare your skin for our nourishing seaweed body wrap. British Columbia's outer sea coast is home to over 500 species of seaweed. Since sea water has a similar chemical make-up as human plasma, the body easily absorbs the rich nutrients from sea plants, including a variety of healthful vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Seaweed treatments help stimulate lymph drainage, reduce cellulite, rid the body of toxins, balance body chemistry, reduce tension and beautify the skin texture.

Next, you'll enjoy being immersed in our hydrotherapy tub to soak in skin-revitalizing seaweeds. This deeply relaxing yet energizing treatment is topped off with a soothing full body massage using our unique signature blend of oils.

Deep Earth Mineral Voyage

Following a dry loofah exfoliation, you will be treated to the gentle detoxifying and nourishing effects of a full body dark mineral clay wrap. Clay is one of nature's best detoxifiers. Its molecular structure allows it to absorb water and oil, and remove impurities and toxins from deep within the skin. In addition to its cleansing effects, our Canadian dark clay stimulates the skin's circulation, making your skin feel silky smooth, stimulated and refreshed.

After this you will enjoy a revitalizing hydro-tub session soaking in Canada's very own 4 million-year-old ancient sea salt. A full-body aroma oil Swedish Massage tops off this invigorating treatment.

Hot Chocolate Bliss

Satisfy your sweet tooth! After a natural sisal exfoliation, you will receive a deliciously warm chocolate moor mud wrap that will soothe your aches and pains and provide a deep sense of relaxation. The Canadian moor mud used by Spa Utopia is one of the rarest in the world, free from contamination and rich in mineral elements. Our moor mud helps reduce inflammation, promotes detoxification and aids sleep. Cocoa added to the mud increases your metabolism, encouraging weight loss.

Following your wrap, you will "melt" in our luxurious hydro-tub before experiencing a full body Swedish Massage.'s pure Bliss!

Happy Father's Day from Spa Utopia

Sunday, June 20, is Father's Day and you'll be wanting to show that extra special dad just how much you appreciate all that he has done for you. (And perhaps some very little people will want to show how much they appreciate all that will be done for them!)

Spa Utopia has a number of services just for men, including the Equalizer Facial to purify and rebalance hard-working skin; the Anti-Stress Facial to soothe skin exposed to harsh elements and reverse the dehydration caused by frequent flying or sun exposure; the Age Performer Facial to encourage a more youthful appearance; the Back Zone Treatment to help eliminate the dead skin build-up that contributes to clogged pores and blackheads; Nail Grooming for Hands, and Nail Grooming for Feet.

And is there a hard-working dad anywhere who doesn't love the idea of a stress-reducing, game-improving massage?

This Father's Day, why not treat the father/s in your life to one of the following massages? (A full list of massage treatments available can be found on our website.)

Utopia Royal Massage (100 minutes)
This full body Swedish massage will make Dad feel like a king! It includes warm towel wipes that increase circulation to the skin, warm stones placed on the back to heat back muscles, steam to the face and scalp to calm common tension areas, and a relaxation massage that pays extra attention to the face, scalp and feet. The Utopia™ Royal Massage eases aching muscles and induces the peace of mind that is so deserved.

Utopia Signature Massage (75 minutes)
Unique to Spa Utopia, the Utopia™ Signature Massage is perfect for stressed-out fathers. Surrendering to the sensations of hot stones and warm towels stimulates circulation and relaxes tired, achy muscles. Essential oil blends and soothing hands will promote deep relaxation and a sense of renewal. (Many men say that a deep, stimulating massage both calms and relaxes them, yet leaves the body renewed and refreshed. This is why golfers, soccer players, and other sports enthusiasts insist on a deep massage to help their performance...)

Utopia Classic Swedish Full Body Massage (75 minutes)
This classic form of massage is a wonderful introduction to spa treatments! A Utopia™ Classic Swedish Full Body Massage will promote Dad's good health by loosening his muscles and invigorating tissues, evoking feelings of tranquility and well-being.

To learn more about Spa Utopia treatments for deserving dads, please visit our website, or call your local Spa Utopia to book. We wish a wonderful Father's Day to all!

Introducing Spa Utopia New Services, and Service Directory

As the days grow ever longer and warmer, it's even more important to nurture the body and soul. With revealing clothing comes the need to have skin that glows with health, and to this end Spa Utopia has introduced a new Cocooning Body Treatment: the Amazon Berry Wrap.

Summer can also be a time of stress, as we try to balance workload, family commitments, and the desire to get out in the sunshine for some personal play time. To alleviate a common symptom of stress, we have also introduced a new Advanced Therapeutic Massage, for tension headaches.

The Amazon Berry Wrap

Relax deeply as you are wrapped in goodness from the amazing açai berry. Açai berries are harvested using sustainable methods to preserve the Amazon rainforest and are rich in antioxidants. These free-radical fighters help protect against environmental damage to the skin.

The Spa Utopia Amazon Berry Wrap also incorporates capuaçu butter to increase the skin's moisture levels. This rich emollient is derived from the seeds of the cupuaçu tree, which grows prolifically in the rainforest. The butter is believed to increase the skin's elasticity as well as providing deep, long-lasting  hydration. During this exotic rainforest experience, you will also enjoy a facial cleanse and treatment mask.

Advanced Therapeutic Massage for Tension Headaches

Designed by Spa Utopia Registered Massage Therapists, the Tension Headache Treatment  decreases the musculoskeletal tissue tension that results from work and life stresses. Treatments may, over time, decrease the frequency and duration of headaches.

If you suffer from head pain and are tired of being "forever on the run," why not schedule a professional massage that will transport you to a state of deep relaxation? After all, you have earned it and it just may well put an end to the headaches associated with your hectic lifestyle.

To learn more about these treatments, or to book an appointment, please contact your local Spa Utopia, or visit our website:  Our new service directory is available now at all our locations.
