I have visited Spruce Body Lab 6 or 7 times and have enjoyed it each time. Each visit was for massage and its great since all their therapists are RMT's!! The place is clean, professional and the rooms are nice. My only comment is that is it pricey compared to other places i go to but i still go (well until my insurance runs out!). So as long as you know the $$ than i would fully recomend it!

I made an appointment with Dave Butt (RMT) because I know from a previous visit that he has strong hands, and I was in pain from a pulled muscle in my neck. I am always impressed by the ability of a masseuse to find, isolate and disperse a problem. I admit there was no immediate relief, and the Deep Tissue massage was painful at times. It is now day 2 after my massage and the pain I had been suffering for 10 days is subsiding. I would reccomend Dave for any kind of deep tissue work. This man has powerful hands, and I am sure he can deliver a gentle touch as well.

Spruce is my favourite spa because it is so clean and quiet and modern. I like the interior design and lighting and impression of absolute cleanliness. The infared sauna is small and effective too. The lights blink as a warning that your time is almost up and then go out when your sauna is done, so you can just relax and enjoy it. The shower is amazing in the change room with 4 water tiles and a rain shower head above. Premium products for hair and skin supplied. I couldn't stop smelling myself for hours afterward, the body wash smells so gorgeous. The hair product was the best I've ever used and my hair was just perfect all day, if I do say so myself. I should have bought some on my way out.

Good work Spruce Bodylab you are still my favourite.

Had a great spa day with Spruce Body Lab. The staff are very professional and the massage was exactly what I needed. Nice relaxing music (no pan flutes) with a modern twist. Spotlessly clean and crisp environment. Looking forward to my next visit.

I had a nice massage but unpleasant experience at the front desk. I informed the front desk I was running late, but was not informed they would be shortening my appointment but still charging me the same amount. The receptionist was not understanding and simply charged me the amount with very little consideration. Not a pleasant way to end a massage and did not feel like a welcoming environment to come back to.

For me it's worth it to spend a little extra and have a RMT who works on the parts that I've requested, and actually works them to what my body needs. I'll be back!
