I've always enjoy my visits at Body benefits. Not only is Melanie very knowledgeable about skin care, she also has the best products and gives the best facial. I don't trust anyone else.
I currently live in Edmonton and I have been trying to find a place as great as Body Benefits with no luck. Mel is focused 100% on cleanliness and providing the best service for you personally. She is very knowledgeable about her products and creates a comfortable environment for what could otherwise be an awkward situation. After a terrible allergic reaction at a spa out here I decided to visit Mel on a recent trip home. Not only was the service top notch but she explained how I can avoid a problem in the future. She is exactly the kind of person to put your trust in for all your waxing needs!
I have been going to Melanie for face treatments and products for over 4 years now. Getting regular AFA Peels and periodic Oxy Detox treatments has helped keep my skin under control. Melanie is very knowledgeable about the products she uses and sells. She has also been very helpful on advising me on the types of products I have purchased to use in my daily skincare routine. I would definitely recommend Body Benefits to anyone looking for a Spa in London!
I have "Happy Feet"! My poor feet suffered from neglect this winter but a relaxing, professional pedicure at Body Benefits resulted in soft, sandal ready pretty feet. My relaxing experience started with a cup of herbal tea, current fashion magazines and an explanation of how I could choose to sit or lie down during the pedicure. Sterilization is an obvious priority at Body Benefits, it was reassuring to see how cautious they were with the foot bath. I was anxious to have my feet exfoliated but it was a real bonus to also have my legs professionally exfoliated. A relaxing foot and leg massage performed by gifted hands put this pedicure service over the top. If you want to feel pampered and appreciate privacy during a spa service, this reasonably priced pedicure is designed for you in mind.
I was introduced to Body Bens by a friend who raved about Mel's excellent service for years. I had my first peel 3 years ago, and was quite apprehensive at first. Mel was patient with my concerns and answered all of my questions. She has extensive knowledge about her products and services, and is always expanding her practice with the latest treatments. Her enthusiasm for her work is apparent. My initial results were incredible and I have returned for other products and treatments since. I consider Mel a part of my health/wellness team, and I plan to continue to see her regularly. Do your skin a favour... book an appointment!
I have been going to Body Benefits for thirteen years now, ever since I first came to London. Melanie and her staff are wonderfully caring, eminently expert, professional aestheticians. Melanie is certified in a wide variety of modalities and she is constantly updating her expertise and that of her staff. Clients are always sure they are receiving knowledgeable advice and care along with kindness, respect and a sense of humour. In all the many times I have been helped at Body Benefits I have been thoroughly satisfied with the services and, also, with the atmosphere, the equipment, and the very reasonable cost of the treatments. As long as Body Benefits is in business, I expect to be their client.
I had a pedicure from this place recently - for my relaxing foot soak I sat in a shoe shine chair and placed my feet in a cheap horrible footbath - clearly bought at a yard sale. The vibration was not at all relaxing but a monotonous humming sound - more noise than vibration!! The leg exfoliation was done with an exfoliation glove from a drug store! I hated every minute of it! My esthestician then laid me on a bed for the remainder of my treatment. Not how I expected my professional pedicure to be done!! I did not feel relaxed or pampered and for the price I paid I certainly would not recommend this place and nor would I return!

You're right! We do use exfoliating gloves but they are not from a drug store! The reason why they are used for our pedicures is so we can treat our guests with a special foot and leg wash that is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial .This wash is all natural, PH balanced and has a DIN# (drug identification number) from Health Canada. It is used all over the world in leading spas with exfoliating gloves to ensure proper sanitation before the pedicure begins. Salt based scrubs that are typically used in other spas can dry the skin out and sugar scrubs can leave a sticky residue. Both do not have anti-fungal or anti-bacterial properties either. We use professional Hydraulic spa beds so you can either sit up or lay down but the choice is yours. Most of our regular guests prefer to lie down during their pedicures. We actually conducted a survey 2 years ago within the spa for all of our regular pedicure clients (people who come in every 4-6 weeks year round) asking them “ whether they preferred to lie down or sit up during the pedicure” and 97% responded they preferred to lie down and relax during the pedicure treatment. The foot baths are professional vibration pedicure baths from Danyco not from a yard sale. The other choice is the hot river rock pedicure basin so you can choose vibration or the smooth texture of the hot rocks. The pedicure throne is also a professional chair from Silhouette Tone. These pedicure chairs are used in several top spas we know of here in London and this method of doing pedicures is usually very relaxing, private but most importantly, more sanitary than pedicure baths with jets. We pride ourselves in keeping the spa clean and use disposable buffers and files. We have been in business for nearly 20 years and each time we have had an inspection from the Health Board we always pass. As far as cost we don't know where you can find a detailed 2hr pedicure for $50.00.
We drive from Toronto once a month to see Mel!!! Melanie and her specific custom tailored treatments are TOP NOTCH!!! No one takes the time, listens to your history, and gives you "old fashioned" honest work as she does. She knows skin like Mick Jagger knows dance and music!! You will NOT be disappointed!
I have had peels, laser and waxing done at Body Benefits and I am extremely happy with all the services provided. The owner, Melanie, is always professional, knowledgeable and more than wiling to answer any questions I have. She goes beyond amazing customer service by returning phone calls about any questions I have regarding treatments received, or inquiries in general. The entire staff is great and I fully recommend going in to see Melanie and her team as you can tell how passionate she is about what she does. The results show exactly that. I've also purchased skin care products from Body Benefits and I am extremely happy with all of them. Melanie doesn't sell products she doesn't believe in and she recommends only the things that will work for your particular skin type/problem. I must mention that my favorite peel is the PCA TCA and my skin looks amazing afterwards, in fact, I can't wait for my next one.
I have been going to Body benefits for 2 years now and I love their service! I have had their oxygen facial and am a monthy user of their PCA Sensi Peels and brazilian waxes. Body benefits has a clean and extremely friendly environment. I always feel taken care of as all of their staff is highly trained in the treatements they perform and are able to answer all of my questions. I have been getting brazilian waxes for about 5 years now and have been to various different studios in Canada as well as Europe and I can say that in my experience, Body benefits has the best service and technique. As for the PCA Sensi Peels, I have just had my second treatement to have glowing and flawless skin for my wedding and already after 2 treatements I am so happy! The redness on my face is going way down and my acne breakouts are clearing right up! I was nervous before getting my first peel because I did not know what to expect but Melanie took the time to answer all my questions and showed me how it would all work. Now I can`t believe I waited so long to get them! I would recommend Body Benefits to anyone who is looking for quality service, friendly staff and great prices on products. They are extremely well qualified and have always made me feel like a valued client.
I have been a client of Body Benefits for several years. I am always so impressed with Melanie and her team at the spa. The quality of service is excellent, as are the products that are carried. I have been to many other spas in large metropolitan areas and I find the services at Body Benefits far exceed any others that I have experienced. I am pleased to add my recommendation
Melanie (owner) is amazing at what she does! When I started seeing her for facial treatments I had chronic acne and after regular treatments things started to clear up… today I am acne free and only see her for occasional maintenance treatments. She is really knowledgeable, experienced and truly cares about helping clients look beautiful and feel great! I also had Melanie do some laser hair removal treatments on me. Her priority is always safety and she ensured that laser hair removal was right for me before we began treatments. After only 6 sessions I rarely ever have to shave… and that was a year ago! Mary (RMT) is also wonderful! She always knows exactly where it hurts without me telling her and has a way of working out the aches and pains. I always leave feeling great and wishing the treatment would go on forever! I would recommend Body Benefits to anyone – the staff is so friendly and they are all great at what they do! I have had facials, waxing, pedicures and laser hair removal – I've never left disappointed.
Mel, owner of Body Benefits Day Spa, provides the best service, carries the best products and optimizes the condition of her clients skin care through both services and products. I love the PCA peels as they remove the old, tired, and dull skin, revealing soft and subtle skin with a fresh glow . Thank you Mel!
Best massage I have ever had! Danielle did a wonderful job and I highly recommend going and getting one! Great Place with great service and freindly staff!
Got my brazilian wax done, It was fast and done right...The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I was very pleased :)
Body Benefits has friendly and professional staff, and they offer a huge variety of services. I've always had a great experience there, and have always been really satisfied with the services I've had!
Fabulous Spa with friendly, knowledgeable staff. I did the AFA Facial Peels (6 sessions), the differrence was incredible. Friends asked if I had had a face lift. I would highly recommend treating yourself to any of their services.
