(English) Spa Week

While some Montrealers are choosing the restaurants they will dine at during Taste MTL (Montreal’s restaurant week, Nov 1 – 11), I’m happily shopping for my next spa treatment as part of Montreal’s first Spa Week by WaySpa.com. From October 15 – 21, Montrealers can enjoy a number of types of full treatments, for only $50 each, at participating spas. I had the opportunity to test drive a couple of them for you and highly recommend you get in on one or more of these ultra-relaxing deals!

Strom Spa Nordique on Île des Soeurs is now offering aesthetic services such as spa manicures and pedicures in a little glassed-in hut right near one of their thermal baths. During spa week, you can choose from a 50 min. signature manicure or a 60 min signature pedicure with an express manicure. Both Spa Week treatments are only $50 and include access to the Thermal Experience. I would book the mani-pedi with a girlfriend, spend the afternoon at this indoor-outdoor spa (especially with this gorgeous weather) and then enjoy a glass of wine and a light meal at their bistro. A mini girly getaway for budget-savvy girlfriends!

At Nubia Spa Vert in the Mile End, you can choose from three $50 treatments: a 45 min therapeutic massage, a 45 min organic facial, or a 50 min organic body exfoliation. Plus, each treatment includes a 30 minute Infratherapy sauna session to help you unwind before your chosen treatment. I had the good fortune to try both the massage and the facial after a 30 min session in the sauna and I can tell you that they were both incredible. Following my treatments, I promptly booked another massage for the end of the month. Now that proves that I truly enjoyed my experience! I also highly recommend Nubia for their organic approach – all of their massage oils and facial products were created for them and are both ecological and ethical. Go green spa!

Be sure to check out and compare all of the treatments on offer at the participating spas. A few of my other go-to spas are on the list: Bota Bota (Old Montreal), Espace Nomad (Plateau), Dermalounge (Laurier West), Centre Savanna (Saint Henri), West Spa (Ville-Saint-Laurent) and Ofuro (in Morin Heights).

Happy Spa Week!
