Day 12 - Grand Senses

Grand Senses – an Aveda spa, salon and boutique opened in the spring of 2015 in downtown Charlottetown. I met the amazing Virginia MacIsaac, General Manager at the Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer and within moments of speaking to her, I couldn’t wait to go visit Grand Senses for the first time!

When Tracy and I went to see Virginia, we were greeted with a cup of delicious Aveda comforting tea. She took us on a tour of the luxurious spa, salon and boutique. The spa was beautifully designed, impeccably clean, and it was radiating with zen. We couldn’t help but feel relaxed after walking through the doors of Grand Senses. We also had the opportunity to meet a few of her talented team members.  Each Aveda service offers a finishing touch, such as a makeup touch-up or a hand massage. We opted for the hand massage; I had not realized how tight the muscles in my hands were, the massage felt unbelievable.

I spent 30 minutes in the aqua therapy massage bed, a unique “dry water massage”. This was an out-of-body experience, I felt so relaxed and at peace after this experience. I can’t wait to go back!
