Spa My Blends by Clarins, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, ON

For our birthdays, instead of buying something, Gord and I take each other to the spa.  Last week was my birthday and today we went to the Spa My Blends by Clarins at The Ritz-Carlton to celebrate.  It's the first time we'd been there.

Because we were having a 60 minute massage, we had a complimentary spa day pass which granted us all-day access to the salt water lap pool, hot tub, sauna, experience showers, eucalyptus steam room, green tea infused vitality pool, relaxation lounge and co-ed sanctuary.

Here is the women's area.

Before our massage, we spent time in the pool area.

When it was time for our massage, we waited in the co-ed sanctuary, where there were chairs and beds so you can relax while you wait.  There were complimentary treats such as almonds, dark chocolate almond bark, apples, tea, water, etc.  You can also order wine and a light meal (at a cost).

Then it was time for our couples massage in the Cloud 9 room.  Elena was Gord's masseuse and he said she gave him a really good massage.  Salvatore was my masseuse and he was excellent!  He found spots that I didn't even know I had issues with.

After our massage I went back to the women's area and had a short snooze on one of the beds in the relaxation lounge.  Then I spent some time in the steam room before heading for a shower.  The shower was fun.  There were eight jets in the walls pointing at me, a regular shower head and a raindance shower head ... and I had them all on at the same time!

The staff was very friendly, always saying "hello" and asking if I needed anything.  They supply everything including shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, razors, hair gels, deodorant, etc.  You just have to bring yourself and your bathing suit!

Because we were celebrating my birthday and our anniversary, they sent us home with a gift bag.

It was a very nice experience and we'll be back!
