I love Body Blitz Spa.
When it’s cold and dreary in Toronto, one of my favourite places to recharge is Body Blitz Spa on Adelaide Street West. The original location has become so popular that a second location on King Street East is now open.
The Therapeutic Waters Pass will set you up for an afternoon of relaxation. I usually start with a warm shower and then a nice long soak in their Warm Dead Sea Salt Water Pool, letting the hydrotherapy jets melt away all my stress. Once you have rinsed off poolside, take a plunge in the Hot Epsom Pool. If you get too hot, you can always dip a toe into their Cold Plunge Pool which helps tighten pores. I can plunge my whole body in for about five seconds and that’s it – I’m a wimp.
Once you are all soaked out, take in an Aromatherapy Steam or sweat it out in their Infrared Sauna. Make sure you stay hydrated and drink lots of water during the suggested two-hour visit. You can even order a smoothie from their juice bar and lounge in your bathrobe poolside. Don’t plan anything but a nap after an afternoon like this. Your body will feel like jello and you’ll just want to sleep and rest.
The Therapeutic Waters are complimentary with any service booking. I like to round off my visit with an RMT Massage, which my insurance covers 80% of.
Use your massage benefits! It’s like a FREE day at the spa. Most companies who offer RMT massage benefits provide up to $500/year with a doctor’s note. You will require a receipt from the spa to submit to your insurance company. If massages are not your thing, Body Blitz also offers a bunch of Mud Bakes and Scrubs that I would love to eventually try.
For purses & storage, a locker area and a sleek looking vanity area for you to pretty up post-spa. I love this place because it makes me feel like I am on a luxurious vacation. I highly recommend this unique urban spa next time you’re in Toronto!
