Now that many Vancouver spas have opened back up with COVID-19 protocols and modified services, it's time for some pampering!
Some post-summer maintenance treatments to consider treating yourself to:
- Rehydrate your skin with a facial
- Let a massage erase any neck and back tension from being back in your desk chair
- Exfoliate those feet after hoofing around in sandals and hiking boots all summer
- Mani-pedi — a personal favourite!
