A good friend, Maggie, and I were invited to come experience the Tay River AQUA at Tay River Reflections medical spa. Maggie and I were both quick to accept the invitation and eagerly anticipated our girly spa day. The Tay River Reflections Medical Spa is located in a country setting on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Perth, Ontario. The spa boasts all of your favorite treatments and are all “based on sound medical science”. Owner and Medical Director, Dr. Manuela Joannou, has a clear passion for helping you obtain optimum health and well-being. I had a skin consult with Dr. Joannou and loved that someone finally listened to my concerns and offered great advice that I could implement right away.
Our day at the spa focussed on enjoying the Tay River Aqua. Although there was still snow on the ground, we were ready to flip off our flip-flops, drop our robes and immerse ourselves in the large outdoor hot tubs. Tay River AQUA also boasts a red cedar dry sauna, outdoor fireplace, refreshing cold showers, heated relaxing gazebos and a lounge with food service and bar. All of the amenities (lunch and drinks are extra) are included in your visit.
The facility also includes a world-class gym. With your pass purchased for the day or evening, you can join in a fitness class for free. The gym has classes and personal trainers available as well. A new experience for me was the total body vibration. Sorry, but I am NOT sharing the photo of myself on the total body vibration.
“Standing on a vibrating platform causes muscles and tendons to stretch, which triggers involuntary muscle contraction. This allows a passive sort of exercising, where there is no effort, and no sweating.“
The total body vibration also makes you giggle. You can’t help it.
There is an option to add-on spa services to you visit to Tay River AQUA. How about adding a relaxing full body massage using local Lanark County Maple products to you visit? Or a European facial that is tailored to your skin type? If you are making it a true girly day spa, a main-pedi might be in order. If you want to keep with the maple theme, there is a NEW LANARK MAPLE SPA PACKAGE! Includes a Body Scrub, Manicure and Pedicure using lightly scented local maple products!
A great day of pampering and relaxing will rejuvenate the body and soul. Tay River AQUA would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift, a memorable date night or a fun girls day. I know that Maggie and I were relaxed and ready to jump back into our busy lives… well after maybe 30 more minutes.
