This is one of the walls as one enters into what appears to be a store front in a shopping mall. The sign says TEAL. Mind,Body,Wellness, and although there is a rather spa like setting as you enter, it is basic, clean, simple and you immediately feel, “nice”. Looking around, it is open, and bright, and coming from outside where it is cold, and very much winter, the atmosphere inside is warm and inviting without being pretentious.
Theses are some of the options offered at Teal. I’ve been twice now, and both times I’ve come away looking like a greased monkey, high on a lot of TLC and expert attention to my – in need of a holiday body. We all can’t get away on an exotic holiday, nor do we all have the time or inclination to spend weeks working over time so we can manage a few days off, only to get back to work and find the work we left on our desks still there.
My first visit there, I went for the Ayurveda treatments. I had a full body treatment and a head massage and a full body Kalp Ubtan treatment. It was an amazing experience, I have had Ayurveda treatments before, and I always came away totally “spaced” I am telling you that this combination I experienced that day, was out of this world. Let me share with you their wording from their website. tealwellness.com

The fragrant liquid flows in a rhythmic stream falls into your forehead and rivers around your head nourishing your hair and scalp. Find deep peace and let your tension melt away with every drop.
Ubtan is a very influential lymphatic system intoxicant that is used in variety of body treatments; an aid in the detoxification process. The Ubtan (a herbal paste) is a mixture of fine herbs, spices, grains and selective essentials oils.
Ubtan, when initially applied over the body, the nature of herbs and spices is induced in the deeper tissues of the body, which eliminates stiffness and blockages.
Thereafter, massaging on the body with herbal Dosha Oils, it creates the friction that helps open up the skin pores, enhance metabolism and dissolving fat tissues. Ubtan; due to its enriched ingredients, is highly advantageous for toning body muscles, reducing cellulite from the body and stimulating weight loss.
Finally, 15 minutes of steam sauna will relive all your muscle tension and make you feel rejuvenated and re-energized.
My recent visit, today. I had the Kalp Ayurveda Facial (1 hours), followed by a one hour massage from a RMT (Registered massage therapist)… need I tell you that I did not drive home, my thoughtful husband, drove me there and picked me up. I was totally on a ME day.
Have you ever wondered about a Thai Yogic Massage? You’ve heard about it, and thought about it, but never got around to looking it up. Maybe you want to try Reiki, or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, maybe now while we are in the winter season, and life can get blah… you could consider doing something for yourSelf…. In every major center, smaller towns, and most communities, there are Alternative Health Care providers.
Yes, it is looking after your body, yes the very body that houses who you are, and will be your constant companion all through your journey in this lifetime.
When we look after our bodies, our mind functions better. It really does.
