Toronto's Body Blitz water spa is surrounded by condos, offices, and trendy bars. But once you enter the watery paradise, you forget where you are.

Interior of Body Blitz

The first step in the unique Body Blitz circuit is a soak in a Dead Sea salt pool. This is followed by a eucalyptus steam and the first of many plunges into ice cold waters. The cold isn't as jarring as it may seem—and it's purported to close pores and stimulate the thyroid. Besides, the next stop is the toxin-purging infrared sauna so you don't stay chilled for long. After another cool down, it's tea time—green tea soak time, that is. The tea provides anti-aging benefits that guarantee you won't be turning into an old bag any time soon.

Body Blitz also houses a full-service spa with a range of holistic options, such as the face and scalp renewal, which is perfect for special days like weddings, galas, or a date with Mr. Right. Scalp serum and warm argan oil, revered for its hydrating and restorative properties, are applied via massage. A gentle exfoliating face cleanse is followed by an impurity-busting green clay face mask, which dries during an indulgent foot massage. The mask is rinsed, skin is toned and treated to more argan oil and moisturizer, and hair is washed and conditioned.

Entrance to the waters ($48, $38 on Tuesdays) is complimentary with all spa treatments.
