Nestled on Elm Street (one of the best foodie streets in Toronto) it’s hard to imagine that a luxurious setting and tranquil upscale environment awaits you on the inside. The spot is quite huge (yet intimate at the same time) and wooden decor greets you on arrival. Elmwood Spa (another one of my faves in the city) must exude a special element of relaxation on its neighbour because I always feel calm once I enter Bangkok Garden. It’s a spot I hang out with the girlfriends and it’s a spot that both my moms absolutely love. Clearly a good balance, no matter what the occasion.

While dozens of spas are spread throughout the GTA, you’ll find most of the better ones in the downtown core. Elmwood [Spa], near Yonge-Dundas Square, is a four-floor sanctuary with 34 treatment rooms, a pool, steam rooms, two restaurants (including Thai favourite Bangkok Garden) and a juice bar. Bringing your spouse along is encouraged, as the spa includes couples suites.

The Toronto spa scene is booming. With new luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton, the Shangri-La, Trump Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel springing up through the city like sunflowers in a Tuscan field, it’s an exciting time to be an urban wellness junkie – especially when these properties come with 5-star spas. At the same time, it’s reassuring to know that what we’ve had and loved for years isn’t getting lost in the spa shuffle.
So let’s hear it for aging gracefully. It’s Elmwood Spa’s 30th birthday, and this tried-and-true downtown spa with four spacious floors, an airy pool area, two restaurants, fresh juice bar and blue-tiled vision of a whirlpool in the women’s change room isn’t losing sleep about hitting the big 3-0.

In honour of Elmwood Spa’s birthday this year, journalists and beauty experts were invited to an exclusive media only experience at the spa to celebrate 30 years of being Toronto’s original destination for beauty, health and wellness.
To commemorate the Spa turning the big 30, we were pampered with a complimentary spa treatment followed by some refreshments, including champagne, and delicious Thai munchies at Bangkok Garden restaurant.
Though it was difficult to choose just one, and as I’m partial to massages, I opted for the Fire and Ice Massage. Once I was ready, I was escorted to my treatment room where my RMT explained what the Fire and Ice Massage entailed, including some of its benefits.

Madonna told Harper’s Bazaar that she loved her oxygen facials so much that she keeps an oxygen machine in each of her homes. As well, Kate Middleton reportedly treated herself to an oxygen facial before her wedding.
Toronto’s Elmwood Spa says its new O2 facial ($130 for 50 minutes) produces immediate results including plumper, smoother and glowing skin.

New to Elmwood Spa, the Oxygen Treatments add extra rejuvenating health benefits to traditional spa services. Okay, what the hell does that mean? Essentially, the O2 facial is everything you would normally receive in a facial, but along with cleansing, massage and exfoliation, the aesthetician will also take a magic wand that blows fast oxygen into your tired, clogged pores. This feel-good technique gives skin a beautiful glow and is a great option for when you want immediate results for say, a wedding or high school reunion.

In the past decade, more and more men have come to embrace the spa as not simply a women’s pastime or luxury. The need to relax and de-stress, receive treatment for sports injuries, or grooming has become popular among many of Toronto’s professionals.

The Elmwood has been around for decades but constantly reinvents itself through renovations and new global-inspired treatments. It’s big, too, but never feels that way, thanks to plenty of nooks that keep other patrons at bay. Spa packages are a favourite here, judging by the abundance of bathrobe-clad guests eating lunch in the dining room.

The ultimate multi-tasker – that’s what I’m known as. Another more realistic term would be workaholic. I’m programmed to create and dialed in to achieve. Throw in a couple of cute kids and hubby into the mix and I’m running on overload.

My daughter Erica and I don’t talk to each other very much during the day. Seriously. We’re both working at breakneck speed so most of the time we limit our communication to Twitter, Facebook, and email. When we do talk, it’s short and very sweet.
Last week she forwarded an invitation from Toronto’s Elmwood Spa

As far as dress codes go, it’s hard to top a bathrobe as the “preferred attire”. We’re not saying that people go to the Elmwood just to have the 3-course lunch ($28) in their robe and slippies, but it doesn’t hurt.
