Breathe, it's Valentines / by Granville Street

New to the downtown and absolutely perfect for Valentines is the new Breathe Spa ( the 400 block of Granville Street. 

Select from a variety of services in facials, massages, hot stone treatments, pedicures, make-up, tinting and waxing, then settle into their lush white decor. ahhhhh.. heaven.

Excerpt from Vitamin-V 

We were first through the door yesterday at Breathe Spa's beautiful new buzz-in location in the historic Roger's Building. Here's 5 things we loved.

1. Once a 1911 barber shop, the spa features black-and-white mosaic floors, white marble pillars, Victorian-era decorative mirrors and ornately detailed high ceilings—all original and restored to stunning, buttercream-icing effect.

2. Five sparkling treatment rooms, each with its own chandelier—and ample space to change into your gorgeous robe in private.

3. Breathe's famous facials (formerly a socialite secret) that will make you glow like an angel.

4 Pedicures using Zoya non-toxic polishes (developed by a Russian pharmacist for his pregnant wife) with 132 colours to choose from.

5. A sumptuous all-white waiting area and Old English sideboard reception desk where reloadable gift cards are now on offer for your better half to pick up in a snap. Hit "forward," subject line "pretty, please"
