circa 1894 day spa - Now booking!
To our knowledge, Circa 1894 Day Spa is the only facility providing the FAR-Infrared experience in the area and we have two. The first is an Ontario Medical Grade, SaunaRay, constructed right here in Ontario of basswood. The other is made of redwood, by SaunaTec, and includes a light therapy option. Both are located inside.
Nestled in the lower level of the three decks, enjoy our outdoor authentic, Amish built, Finnish Sauna and an original wooden cool/cold tub. On the middle deck you can lounge in our large chlorine-free hot tub. The upper deck features a second (also chlorine-free) hot tub, this one a Dream Maker. With the tubs and saunas you can experience Thermo-therapy, which consists of hot/cold/relax/repeat/repeat. Each level has ample seating for relaxation or you can step inside and enjoy the quiet room (which doubles as a therapy room , where you can book a massage or a Reiki treatment) and fireplace with its beautiful oak mantel, which speaks of yesteryear.
We are also pleased to be offering various therapies and themed stays, by appointment only. The first of these themes will be a package that will include the preparation and serving of all the 'meals' necessary for a three day warming cleanse. Call for details.
Please call 613-259-9988 / 1-877-562-1904 or text us at 613-539-0440 to inquire about availability and to book your time at the Spa, from one hour to a 1/2 day or longer. Click here to go to Circa1894 Spa's website

Because they use superior, botanically based products, we have chosen to partner with Arbonne for our shampoo and body wash in the Day Spa.

Here at Circa 1894 Spa, we are excited to be featuring two indoor saunas, plus a Finnish sauna. Pictured is Saunatec's CarbonFlex cedar corner Sauna with "a 'near-perfect' wavelength of 8.4 to 9.4 microns (well within the human body's Vital Range of 7 to 14 microns)." This optimal wavelength provides for deeper penetration of far-infrared heat, which, in turn, helps release toxins, including heavy metals and environmental chemicals; enhances detoxification; increases cardiovascular conditioning; provides relief from muscle and joint aches and pains.
Circa 1894's Hot Tubs are located outside on tri-level decks. At the lower level is a beautiful, rustic, oval, Finnish style tub. The other, situated mid-deck, is from Four Winds Spas and offers an array of jets to allow maximum enjoyment - adjusting to deliver optimum hydrotherapy. Both are chlorine-free and one has LED lighting. With the addition of a cool/cold tub from Dreammaker, a mini nordik thermotherapy experience can be realized. Thermotherapy (hot, cold, relax, repeat, repeat) is said to accelerate the healing process and promote relaxation.
Our SaunaRay sauna (pictured above) is cozy for a couple and is built with basswood for clients with a sensitivity to cedar. These saunas are used worldwide by medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, dentists, chiropactors and massage therapists. As well, firefighters and hockey teams use SaunaRay. Intentionally made toxin free, "SaunaRay is a true medical sauna. It has helped some of my patients get over long term chronic pain where other methods have not worked."
