chi \ (chee): energy created by the perfect balance of the earth's elements

At Chi Spa, we are dedicated to constantly improving ourselves and the spa industry. Our mission is to create a spa environment that is as comfortable as it is therapeutic: an environment in which a client's needs are met, and their expectations exceeded, from the time they book their appointment, to the time when they come in to enjoy it. At Chi Spa, our commitment is to total health, beauty and wellness.

Inspired by eastern philosophies, Chi Spa offers unique services, created for use with essential oils; Chi Spa gives new meaning to the spa experience. Chi cares for your mind, body and soul. Chi Spa incorporates true healing through eastern philosophies. The result: a total health, beauty and wellness boutique. Located in Rosedale on Yonge Street just south of St. Clair Avenue, Chi Spa offers a relaxing environment.

Chi Spa was created with the concept that Toronto was in need of a spa that not only caters to the effects of city living, but also caters to the causes of these symptoms. Chi Spa offers an urban retreat where you can be pampered, de-stressed and truly cared for. In addition, Chi offers an environment where you can learn how to live in the city, without suffering the stresses that so many endure.

Chi Spa offers a cozy, quaint space, with three treatment rooms and a manicure and pedicure area. Each treatment room is equipped with a colour therapy lamp so the room diffuses the colour best suited to each individual client. Each room also has its own music source, so the music can be custom picked. Relax to the sound of trickling water in Chi Spa's comfortable lounge area. The ambiance at Chi Spa creates an ideal and unique retreat intended to sooth the stress of urban living.
