Ontario is Temporarily Closed for spa services... again.

During Ontario's mandatory lockdown, we will be closed for all Spa & Hair services with the exception of Registered Massage Therapy (available at our NEW Kanata location) as it falls under essential healthcare.  We urge you to pre-book now for Feb. 19th & onwards in support of our small businesses re-opening.  

The good news?  Purchasing  home-care products for curbside retail pick ups during this time IS still permitted.   Please shop online, call in your order, PM us on social, or email it  and simply exhale, we've got you.  

We're truly in this together and appreciate your support, thank you!

We kindly request you wear a protective mask (or one will be provided for you), and to sanitize upon your arrival with us.  Please do not visit if you feel unwell.  We've removed our Waiting Lounge area, and kindly request you to arrive only at your pre-scheduled appointment time.  Weather permitting, we have a few comfy Adirondack chairs outside for you as well to wait on.  Thank you for your understanding, compassion and kindness.  Complimentary hand sanitizer will be provided upon entry,  as well as a warm smile (within our own PPE masks) and big air hug to you all.  Rest assured each Dream Team member is health checked at the start of each shift.  We're happy to also report that we've already been approved COVID-Safe and "In Compliance" with Ottawa Public Health inspectors too.

As always, all professional instruments used are disposable when possible, or stainless steel metal that are scrubbed down with anti-bacterial soap then soaked in PRE-empt CS 20 Chemosterilant for instruments and medical devices, as recommended by Ottawa Public Health.  All service spa & hair stations, along with treatment room beds, are cleaned and wiped down with PRE-empt Virox Hydrogen Peroxide Surface Disinfectant after use.  

All client chairs & complete stations are now also disinfected after each use.  For your comfort and continued safety, each manicure & hair station is now also set at 6+ feet apart, and we've installed custom plexiglass dividers for additional separation at our pedicure stations and shampoo bar.   

Please note, we will also continue our Front Door pick ups available during this time as well if preferred for all available retail items, or you may shop safely masked and well distanced inside with us.  If you prefer us to package everything for you in advance, simply call to place your order & pre-pay over the phone, visit our online SHOP, or email Barrhaven at [email protected] or [email protected] for any special orders.  

However you to choose to do it, thanks so much for your support of our small business!

Welcome to exhālō

Opening in Ottawa June 2017

The word exhālō is a unique creation and intentional play on the words exhale and halotherapy. 

Our carefully chosen mandala logo centers and calms the mind, and features the throat chakra symbol known as the center of purification, as this is where energy becomes transformed.  The throat chakra not only relates to the respiratory system, but is considered the voice of the body, 

The vivid tones of blue were chosen to best represent this fifth chakra and first of the higher or spiritual chakras, and were inspired by colours of the sea and air.

Whether your taking in a healthy salt filled breath, relishing in the power of human touch through our wonderful spa treatments or expressing yourself through a new and exciting hair design, as you exhale allow your mind and body to simply let go... we've got you baby.

What Is Halotherapy?

The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halo”, the Greek word for salt.  Halotherapy is a powerful, yet natural treatment in a controlled air medium that simulates the natural salt cave micro-climate by way of a halogenerator. This dry salt vapor is antiviral, and used in unique conjunction with our softly lit Himalayan salt bricks to treat respiratory ailments, skin conditions, and reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression all while you relax and simply breathe. Inhale salt, and exhale wellness.
