Now Kabbalah followers can get their spiritual and physical pampering at Toronto’s Pantages Spa. The therapists begin each massage session by offering you a glass of blessed water.

Forget The Jerry Springer Show. There’s a classier way to make it big on TV.

If you’re not quite up for the system’s intense 12-week training program, head into EyeToy’s Zen Garden for some relaxing mind and body moves. www.eyetoykinetic.com for details.
