For those not familiar with what it is, many of the salons and spas in the Bloor-Yorkville area offer consumers set value-priced packages and services for a set period of time. There is a wide array of hair, spa, skin and health & wellness service packages available at four set prices - $30, $50, $75 and $125 in four categories: hair (hair/colour/cut/style); spa (includes massage and/or facial and/or mani/pedi); skin (non-invasive procedures including Botox, Restylane or chemical peel); and Health & Wellness (nutrition services, dental, chiropractic services)
There are too many packages for me to even begin to tell you about but you can find all the event info at www.bloor-yorkville.com with details of all the participating spas and salons as well as the packages available. But I will share with you a few of the ones I have my eye on as well as a few that I have tried already and can recommend:
Avenue Skin Care - 110 Cumberland Street, Suite 200 - 416-962-3351 is offering $50 Microdermabrasion followed by a mud mask - instant radiance! Read all about it here.
Happy Foot Spa - 70 Yorkville Avenue, Unit LR4 - 416-962-1500 has a $75 Reflexology and Back Massage deal - revel in my pain and pleasure here.

As well he is offering a complimentary consultation and 3D photo image session - check out what you could look like after a bit (or a lot) of work!
