Exhālō management & staff clearly understand a true spa experience is all in the details, and as such, they kindly ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes before your service start time to get settled, exhale and prepare to relax your body, mind, and soul. They offer a selection of complimentary herbal teas, freshly brewed Tim Hortons coffee, spring water, and sparkling lemon ESKA water for guests.
They also happily dish out delicious summer fruit bowls during your pedicure treatments or while your hair is processing – all this, along with the friendly warmth and outstanding customer service does not go unnoticed; as their slogan says “Simply exhale… we’ve got you.”
The word exhālō was a unique creation and intentional play on the words exhale and halotherapy, and the carefully designed mandala logo centers and calms the mind, and features the throat chakra symbol known as the center of purification, as this is where energy becomes transformed. The throat chakra not only relates to the respiratory system but is considered the voice of the body.
Side note* Scattered around exhālō Spa you’ll find jars of pencil crayons and Mandal themed colouring books to entertain and relax the mind – very cool! For the incredible Family Day option they offer on Sundays (YES you can bring your kids in with you to the spa!) they even have a selection of toys and a bubble gum machine to entertain the kiddos (plus free WiFi).
