You didn’t have time to have a mani /pedi before you left the city and you’re desperate to get into your flipflops. You’re thinking that a good massage will take the kinks out before your big run. Your favourite waxing spot was booked. What are the choices in Muskoka?
Body and Soul, Rosseau
A pretty little spot in Rosseau (across from Crossroads) is this health and wellness spa, Body and Soul. Offering manicures, pedicures (regular and shellac), facials and massage this spa is now open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays by appointment. Call 705 732-2300.
Along with the usual nail polish brands, Body and Soul features Habit brand nail polishes that claim to be sustainable, vegan and toxic free and is the only nail polish that uses Myrrh extract, which naturally strengthens nails. Love the bamboo bottle cap!
JW Marriott Spa, Minett
All four seasons you can rely on the Spa at the JW Marriott, but you have to book well in advance. Boasting a large spa with whirlpools, saunas and outdoor pools overlooking Lake Rosseau, the Spa at the JW is a full service spa with services from signature massages to facials to hair services. Because they cater to the numerous bridal parties at the resort, they are good but can get good and booked up. Call: 705-765-7000 or 1-877-765-0567 to reserve your appointment.
The one service that has always been missing in Muskoka is a good waxing service. To get you bikini ready, our favourite waxing spot in the Six, Waxon has announced that, as of June 24th, it will be opening a full service popup in SWS Marina.
