Kid’s Tea Lab: Spring Break Edition Wed Mar 22 > 2-2:45 pm FREE  During this fun session for kids and parents, you’ll learn how to make yummy seasonally inspired tea-based drinks that kids will love (and adults will find delicious too!).  Made from scratch, using just organic tea, juice, and/or non-dairy milk, these all-natural combinations are loved by kids and are fast and easy to make.  But they are also free of all the things you’d like your kids to avoid – artificial flavours, dyes, excess sugar, preservatives and chemicals.  Suitable for ages 8 and up.

Home Spa Treatments for Spring Body Detox > Sun Mar 26 from 12 – 1 pm $20 per person or FREE to VIP members  Since ancient times, the therapeutic effects of plants combined with massage, baths, scrubs or showers have been prized.  Discover simple but powerful techniques and rituals using all natural, green beauty products that benefit body and mind. Want to stimulate your metabolism (which aids weight loss as well as overall health), support your body’s detox and renewal, aid stress management, prevent aging, soften skin, soothe aches and pains, improve skin and muscle tone, combat water retention, reduce cellulite and boost your immune system and your energy?  You’ll learn how easy to turn your bath or shower into a therapy and wellness zone.  Benefit from these treatments whether you work out regularly or not.  Spring is traditionally considered an especially important time of year to stimulate the body’s renewal processes and restore vitality, so this is the perfect time to incorporate these rejuvenating treatments into your life.

Spring Skincare Renewal Sun April 2 > 2 – 3 pm $20 per person or FREE to VIP members  Renew your complexion and shed dull, blah, dry or congested winter skin.  The change of seasons can trigger skin issues, so four times a year (at the change of each season) it’s especially important to give your skin some love.  The key to healthy, radiant skin is to also counteract the effects of the previous season and customize your home skincare rituals to meet your skin’s ongoing needs.  As winter winds down and spring arrives, there are a number of common skin issues to manage.  Skin may be puffy, dehydrated, inflamed, irritated, dry, or congested at this time of year.  Regardless of your skin type, immediately after the winter season, skin is also likelier to have a dull or lackluster appearance.  Shed impurities and reinvigorate your complexion. Your skin’s performance can be greatly improved by introducing a specialized seasonal home facial treatment to your routine.  Our techniques are simple, enjoyable, fast and easy, but very effective.  Learn a step by step home-facial using all-natural, organic, green beauty products to treat your skin and re-balance at this time of year.  You’ll also learn a powerfully effective facial massage treatment based on ancient acupressure techniques, which targets problem areas, while delivering a surge of nutrients and a harmonizing and anti-aging effect for your complexion.
