Post-Holiday R&R: Our Favourite Spas In NW Calgary

January 17, 2018 by Heather Kirk

If you feel like you’re in need of a post-holiday holiday, you’re not alone.

After weeks of family gatherings, last-minute shopping trips and generally overindulging, we recommend taking a little bit of you time to prepare for the year ahead. What better way to recharge than a spa visit?

Whether you’re in the mood for a hot-stone massage, in serious need of a pedicure, or feeling brave enough to try out a new ‘do, Northwest Calgary is home to some of the city’s best places for some much needed R and R —here are some of our favourites.

 

THE SPA RITUAL

The Spa Ritual describes itself as a YYC rejuvenation sanctuary with therapies based on authentic, holistic rituals inspired by ancient health and wellness practices from Southeast Asia.

It offers a range of services and premium products to suit nearly every taste — whether it be relaxation or beauty-focused spa treatments. Some of the experiences it offers include facials, massages, scrubs, waxes, pedicures, and infrared sauna treatments, a great way to combat the winter blues.

Address: 106 Crowfoot Terrace NW | Calgary, Alberta

 

PEEL SPA

For an elevated R&R experience, pay a visit to Peel Salon and Spa, a luxurious Northwest location guaranteed to impress.

Offering six different types of massages, head-to-toe aesthetician services, a whirlpool, full fitness facilities and countless other features, the spa’s mantra — relax, rejuvenate and transform — rings true across all areas of the picture-perfect facility.

Address: 8220 Bowridge Crescent NW | Calgary, Alberta

 

RIVERSIDE SPA

Riverside Spa offers an impressive facility that boasts Swiss showers, steam rooms, and a fireplace lounge, all situated along the banks of the Bow River.

As a bonus, Riverside Spa is also group- friendly, and still offers the comforts of a relaxing massage and pedicure. For an elevated retreat or getaway, stop in to sample the services and bring some company for a social R&R experience.

Address: Riverside Spa Calgary 110 Point McKay Crescent NW | Calgary, Alberta

 

MASSAGE HEIGHTS

 

Brentwood’s Massage Heights offers classic massage services and offerings in our neighbourhood with several other convenient locations around Calgary.

A major Massage Heights feature is its memberships, which include a massage every month, additional massages at a discounted rate, and a number of other enviable perks. Whether you’re in search of a little pampering or some much-needed relief from stress or muscle tension, Massage Heights is a great go-to for massage services and an environmentally friendly choice.

Massage Heights’ Green Initiatives showcase the brand’s commitment to sustainability and opting for biodegradable products at its retreats, offering an experience you can feel good about.

Address: 3820 Brentwood Rd NW #105 | Calgary, Alberta

 

SWIZZLESTICKS SALON AND SPA

 

SwizzleSticks is an award-winning, locally owned world-class Salon Spa located in the heart of Kensington. For 25 years SwizzleSticks has been the go-to quality salon and spa service to Calgarians, and brings a locally-owned focus to natural beauty, health and wellness.

For a one-stop shop for your pampering needs, SwizzleSticks offers salon services including haircuts, styling, colouring in addition to spa services, like facials, nail services, and waxing.
