HÄLSA is the Swedish word for HEALTH and HÄLSA Spa is a health spa in the European tradition, where taking time dedicated to deep relaxation is considered both a natural and essential part of a healthy life.
The idea that relaxation is vital to good health is an ancient one. Throughout history and across cultures, people have visited spas seeking respite and restoration, experiencing the natural curative powers of mineral waters, sauna, massage, and other healing treatments.
At HÄLSA, we are using the term “spa” in this traditional sense, a place of SANCTUARY, dedicated to healing BODY, MIND, and SOUL.
The modern world today is buzzing with activity, and when we’re constantly bombarded with light, noise, and information, it can be extremely hard to wind down, take a break, and just RELAX.
At HÄLSA, we believe that taking time away from our daily routines, shutting out sensation and reconnecting inwards allows us to step back into the world refreshed, restored, and better able to cope with the stresses of modern life. By offering a time and space devoted to deep relaxation, we hope to empower people to live happier, healthier lives.
HÄLSA Spa’s interior is influenced by Scandinavian design, a movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism, and functionality. Beauty is found expressed through clean lines, radiated through light color, and evoked with inspirations of nature and the ample use of wood.
We wholeheartedly accept the core principles of Scandinavian design: good design should be accessible to all and beauty and functionality should go hand in hand.
It is our sincere hope that Vancouverites and visitors to our beautiful metropolis will see HÄLSA as their sanctuary in the city. This is a special place to take some time to relax, contemplate yourself and the universe, be inspired by beauty, and take away peace, health, happiness, restored energy and strength that will follow you in every moment of your living.
We look forward to welcoming you to HÄLSA!
