Refreshing the body from the inside out, and from the outside in.
A place to take a break from your worries. A place to get away. A place that’s a community. And a place where everybody knows your name. This is Nagomi Beauty Room, a spa and health retreat in Toronto’s Bloor West Village. Located just around the corner from Jane subway station, the spa is tucked into a serene, sun-filled second-floor space. A welcome respite from hectic lives, Nagomi offers treatments that focus on total-body support. Clients enjoy facials, makeup and esthetic treatments, traditional Chinese herbal remedies, registered massage therapy (RMT) and cosmetic acupuncture while sharing a sense of community.
Growing up in a small town in Shimane Prefecture, Megumi Overton spent her childhood in her mother’s salon—a place where women would meet their friends and mothers would bring their daughters. Megumi wanted to open an oasis in Toronto with a similar sensibility. She found it in 2012, and when word got out that there was a Japanese- and American-trained esthetician offering treatments popular in Japan to Canadians, Japanese expats from across Ontario began making the trek out to Bloor West Village. As cosmetic “beauty” acupuncture became popular amongst Japanese celebrities, Megumi brought in Yuki Minesaki, a registered traditional Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist, to offer these procedures to Canadians. Popular with both men and women, cosmetic acupuncture is used to stimulate elastin and collagen to supplement everyday beauty routines. The procedure complements Megumi’s facial treatments. Megumi uses muscle stimulation and soothing aloe essences to wake up and pamper skin exhausted from the cold Canadian winter. More recently, the spa has joined the ‘Healthy Moms’ community in Toronto, and offers pre- and post-natal RMT and Oketani massage, a Japanese technique to stimulate lactation and treat other ailments that affect new mothers.
Beauty comes from healthy bodies, and good health starts at home. To help educate its clients, Nagomi offers events from kimono photoshoots to Christmas wellness markets, in addition to education workshops on facial yoga and herbal remedies to maintain healthy skin in between treatments. Spring is a season of renewal, and after a harsh winter, refresh and renew your skin with much-needed pampering at Nagomi Beauty Room.
