Moor Spa

Inspired By Nature

Moor Spa’s comprehensive face, body, spa and wellness line is inspired directly by the healing powers of Austrian Moor, a nutrient rich plant/flower/herbal complex that enhances skin’s health and appearance. By combining the revitalizing, purifying Moor essence with plant derived cosmeceuticals, unadulterated herbal extracts and pure essential oils, Moor Spa delivers safe and effective solutions to meet your skin and body care needs. Our products are not 95% or 99% natural: they are 100% naturally derived. As such, Moor Spa is rated as one of the safest product lines in the spa industry by one of the leading consumer product safety organizations in North America.

Spark Plug Coffee

Taste the difference fresh-roasted makes!

Sparkplug Coffee was started with the goal of bringing fresh roasted, reliably tasty coffee to other coffee lovers. I work with local roasters to select a roast level that best suits each bean. A scientific roast process ensures consistency in flavour so that each blend maintains its flavour profile. Sparkplug Coffees are made from premium Arabica beans sourced through direct and fairly traded methods. Roasted every week in Toronto, each order is custom built to your specifications.

Our spas pledge to abide by  a Code of Ethics  and maintain or exceed standards and practices identified by the association. They are proud leaders of the industry who will provide you with an excellent experience.
