10 Spots To Get Pampered In Vancouver

After a few Instagram posts here and there about me popping into a few spots around Vancouver, my inbox quickly filled up with questions asking about some recommendations for some of my favourite places to get pampered. So, without further ado, here are 10 spots to add to your services list in Vancouver.

 

 

  

4. IV WELLNESS BOUTIQUE
The team over at IV Wellness is one of my absolute favourites.  From energy boosting + hydrating IVs to massages, naturopaths and medical aesthetics – these girls do it all. Bonus, it’s a few doors down from the best croissants and coffee in town (Small Victory). Grab a treat and head in for 20% off IVs on Saturdays. LEARN MORE

5. HIBROW INK
Ok so maybe getting your brows microblading isn’t the most relaxing hour of your life, but wow is it ever worth it.  Elise has created the cutest (and cleanest) little studio in her backyard and has done wonders to my brows. Cheaping out on your microblading isn’t the best of choices, but Elise offers competitive pricing and will exceed your expectations.  I highly recommend paying her a visit for a consult. LEARN MORE

6. FLOAT HOUSE 
Put down your phone, have some tea and take the next 90 minutes for yourself without interruption. Float House has two locations (Gastown and Kits) and is one of the ultimate spots for a refresh and rest for both your mind and body in a sensory deprivation tank. LEARN MORE

7. FOOTWORKS RELAXOLOGY
I could pop into this spot twice a day, every day and never get sick of it.  With two locations in Vancouver, this reflexology spot is one of my favourite spots to disconnect. Enjoy a 10 minute foot soak paired with a back, shoulder and neck massage before moving onto 40 minutes of reflexology. It’s absolute bliss. LEARN MORE

8. BOMBAY BROW BAR
With four locations around Vancouver, this spot is easy access to great brows. Your thread/wax session can be complimented by a trim and a tint…and it always ends with a face massage.  LEARN MORE.

9. WILLOW STREAM SPA
This piece of paradise is located on the 5th floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim in downtown Vancouver. Aside from 12/10 services, you’ll have access to the terrace, pools and spa areas.  The perfect spot for a solo day or a girls weekend. LEARN MORE

10. SPA BY JW
Located on the 17th floor of the JW Marriott in the Parq Vancouver, this place is quite the treat. I enjoyed the Douglas signature body wrap in a treatment room that overlooked the entire city as the sun set and the evening lights started to sparkle.  This was one of the best spa treatments I ever had!
