The Grotto Spa with Beauty Through Balance

24 Mar

(Give a Spa Around the World welcome to guest author Sherina Jamal, founder & creator of Beauty Through Balance Skin Care, who shares one of her favorite spas, treatments & a little home spa therapy Canadian style! Her products are natural & are used in some of the world’s top spas.)

One of Canada’s premier relaxation spots is The Grotto Spa at the Tigh-Na-Mara Sea Side Resort in Vancouver Island, Parksville, British Columbia. Begin your experience with a detoxifying soak in The Grotto’s famous 2500 square foot warm water mineral pool, designed to emulate a natural stone grotto. A two story waterfall, invigorating glacial plunge cascade and non-mineralized whirlpool completes the water wonderland.

A visit to The Grotto’s spa treatment area is next. Specializing in ingredients indigenous to the Pacific West Coast, The Grotto features the Beauty Through Balance Therapeutic Grade Spa Line made in Vancouver BC (home of the 2010 Winter Olympics).  One of the most popular indulgences is The Pacific Body Balancing Treatment:

Re-discover your purest self with indigenous earth elements found in native Canadian glacial clay. Your journey begins with a sea salt exfoliation that will purify the skin with fresh Seaweed and pure green tea. Detoxify and replenish during our Signature thermal layer wrap which utalizes the Beauty Through Balance warmed Seaweed Mask to detoxify and replenish. Your face is then revitalized with a hydrating facial treatment. Finish awakened with refreshed skin from a nourishing Seaweed body butter massage.
