Pampering for Our Mini Babymoon at Hand & Stone Spa College St.

A couple of weekends ago my husband and I decided to head to Toronto for the day to enjoy a bit of time together before our new family member enters our lives. We kind of missed the whole babymoon getaway train – and personally with how uncomfortable my belly is these days I am more than happy to sleep in my own bed at night as opposed to a hotel, no matter how luxurious. We instead decided to treat ourselves and get the most fantastic couple’s massages at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa on College Street as part of our special day!


We were greeted by the owner of the location, Maya – who was such a sweetheart! We loved the laid back, clean and serene vibe of her spa as soon as we walked in.

I went for a prenatal massage and although I have had a few throughout this pregnancy, this one was a little different. The spas I have visited in the past have had the prenatal table with the belly hole in the middle. While that table does have its benefits I am kind of over not being able to roll onto my side or even my back with proper pillows due to the hole not being able to support without a lot of fuss. The tables tended to limit me to only lying on my stomach.

Instead, at Hand & Stone, I had the most lovely massage, comfortably nestled on my side and my back (YAY) with a pillow to prop me up so as to not cut off circulation. It was so relaxing and the RMT (Minoo) was able to massage more of the front of my shoulders, my jaw and neck than the usual prenatal massages I have been getting.

My husband’s RMT (Tommy) specializes in sports massage therapy and Mircea, who plays soccer weekly, felt amazing afterwards! He mentioned that he wished he could go and play a game that day.

I definitely recommend booking yourself a massage or facial at this location – the staff is so nice and accommodating, we loved it! Click here to book your appointment in advance. They also offer facials and other various types of massage which I cannot wait to try out when I settle into my new role as mom and figure out a new balance.

Thank you to all of the staff at Hand & Stone Spa at 578 College Street for a lovely babymoon pampering experience!
