This South Surrey spa is all about relaxation from the moment you enter. Arrive at Casbah Day Spa early for your facial or body treatment and take advantage of the eucalyptus steam or cedar infrared sauna, then post-treatment, relax in the relaxation lounge. The treatments are equally relaxing – think thermal mud wraps, CBD salt scrub body polish and a Lomi Lomi massage, a traditional Hawaiian massage therapy technique that, by using long, fluid strokes over the body, serves as a reminder of our connection to the earth, ancestors and spirit guides.
