Take it from The Little Mermaid’s favourite crustacean Sebastian: it’s better down where it’s wetter, under the sea (or in this case, anywhere you’re submerged in water). Warm or cool, tea-infused or not, time in these “tubs” will definitely help restore your senses.
Ladies and mermen, get ready to rejoice: these sensational spots will most definitely knock your flippers off…

Therapeutic Pools at Body Blitz
Body Blitz prevents Bay Street SheEOs and overworked mompreneurs from going off the deep end. Restoring sanity and a sense of peace to women only, the 11,000 square foot spa boasts several unique, delightful European style therapeutic pools that are as relaxing as they are gorgeous.
Nordik Baths at Nordik Spa
Located in La Belle Province’s picturesque Chelsea, this spa is spectacular. Succeeding in spades at their mission to enhance guests’ health and well-being (in large part in complete symbiosis with nature), their Nordic Baths are just nuts! Outdoors amidst lush trees and Muskoka chairs, you will be treated to an ancestral relaxation technique that alternates hot and cold to deeply regenerate. Benefits of this type of therapy are plentiful. Aside from intense relaxation, it can eliminate toxins, relax muscles, improve the quality of your sleep and strengthen your immune system.
Spa at the Four Seasons Toronto
It’s not exactly a treatment, but the pool at the Spa at the Four Seasons Toronto has an underwater sound system that makes us channel Ariel as we do our best frog-inspired moves beneath the water. It helps that the room is totally sunlit and looks out onto the city, taking the relaxation benefits up a notch. If we could just convince them to play our iPod on the underwater speakers, we might never leave.
Hydrotherapy at Spa Utopia Health & Wellness Centre
East Coast papering at its finest! Located in Langley, BC, just hearing about this spa’s advanced hydrotherapy and bath treatments makes us drool. Their exclusive European hydro-tub has anatomically positioned air and water jets, eight programmed sessions from which to choose from, and an underwater, handheld massage wand. Designed to soothe nerves, strengthen circulation, stabilize metabolism and improve digestion, if we’re ever in that neck of the woods we plan on experiencing it for ourselves.
