the part can never be well
unless the whole is wellPlato
Located in a newly restored century-old heritage building in the beautiful village of Manotick, we pride ourselves in providing our guests with a world class spa and wellness experience.
Our exceptionally trained staff provide our guests a full range of organic skin care treatments, manicures, pedicures, waxing, sugaring, and massage therapy - for both men and women in a friendly and relaxing environment. With an integrative approach to healthy skin our treatments support the health of the skin and wellness of the client.
We are a certified Eminence Organic Green Spa and Skin Essence Organics retailer - we use only scent-free organic products in our skin care treatments, natural hair removal wax and sugar, and professional water-based non-toxic nail polish.
Our guiding philosophy is based on Eastern approaches to holistic wellness, such as Ayurveda, that emphasize that the state of our inner health greatly influences our physical appearance.
Chronic skin conditions such as premature aging, youth and adult acne, dermatitis and rosacea are all issues linked to internal inflammation. To make significant improvements, we need to soothe inflammation: by neutralizing free radicals, reducing exposure to synthetic chemicals, boosting immune function, balancing hormones, detoxification, and topical support including natural skincare treatments and organic products.
1. We believe in the wisdom of nature
We use only products with safe, 100% natural ingredients, not synthetic chemicals. Many beauty and personal care products contain carcinogens and toxins that affect the immune, reproductive, and endocrine systems. Natural and non-toxic products are more effective simply because they are made with ingredients that don't disrupt our body's natural state.
2. We treat the whole person
We believe that beauty is a result of good health and that our skin is a reflection of what is going on inside. We take a holistic approach to skin care and recognize that the skin is not separate from the rest of the body. We not only treat the skin, but can treat the whole body and the whole person with integrated wellness and complementary health services.
3. We share our knowledge
Our continual staff training and product research builds our knowledge and experience to effectively help our clients reach their goals. We help educate our clients so they may make better choices for their health.
