Toe To Soul Relax Lounge Vancouver provides solutions to reduce everyday stress. Choose between Reflexology or Full Body Massage (Swedish, aromatherapy, or deep tissue massage). Although, Toe To Soul does not provide RMT (registered massage therapist) options, it is a great new place to wind down after a hectic week(end). I purchased this awesome deal 75-Minute Spa Package, Including Full Body Massage and Foot Reflexology via SocialShopper to spend some ‘me time’ on Monday.
Toe to Soul Relax Lounge is clean and open. My massage therapist, Amanda, although not RMT certified was skillful to release tension from my shoulder and runner’s calves. There are duel massage rooms if you choose to spend a little R&R with a friend. This place isn’t meant to be fancy. Please don’t expect fluffy duvet beds and heaters like you expect from your typical five star hotel spa experiences. Guilty, because this was what I had initially imagined. Brought back to reality, from creeking massage tables and skillful hands, I was soon in zen mode.
After my 50 min deep tissue massage, I made my way to the front for a 25 min reflexology session. A hot tub of water with sea salt greeted me on a La-Z-Boy. Reflexology is considered alternative medicine and has been practiced for throughout ancient China. It involves applying pressure to areas of the feet which corresponds to various zones throughout the body. Reflexology can be painful. Pain can be associated with choosing the wrong pressure (reflexology beginners, I recommend mild pressure!) or trouble zones in your body. As my painful but enjoyable reflexology session comes to end end; my masseuse draped a hot towel over my legs for a final release of tense muscles.
Toe to Soul is opened late until 10pm and is perfect for those who work 9-5. After work hours are busy and can get a tad noisy. Come early to avoid the rush! If you haven’t signed up for SocialShopper, you can sign up HERE!
