Guests looking to soothe skin which may be troubled from their pregnancy will adore this calming experience. For the cherry on top, select the Premium Mum-to-Be massage to focus on a specific area and have the choice of an organic face mask that will leave your skin feeling velvety smooth.

D - For the more hands-on types, we’ve also got something for you! If you’re hoping to naturally care for your skin in the long-run, consider a Personal Coaching session with our facialist Emilie Céline. She will guide you through tips that are tailor-made for your lifestyle and provide you with an easy routine to manually massage your skin for brilliant results.

F- What do you get the person who has everything? A soothing wellness experience, of course! A Maison Ito gift card is the perfect option for friends and loved ones who deserve some rest and relaxation.

A. Wrinkles or sagging skin

B. Acne or pigmentation

Customize your massage by choosing add-ons that target your skin issues.
