Get Sweaty

Toronto’s hottest new wellness destination is Dew Sweat House. With relaxing treatments that can provide all the benefits of an infrared sauna (without the sauna), a visit to the Dew Sweat House can improve your sleep, boost your mood and metabolism and even help with pain relief. Did we mention it’s hot? During a 55-minute session, visitors are wrapped in a heated infrared blanket, which reaches a maximum temperature of 75° Celsius. The treatment dilates blood vessels, promotes blood flow and encourages perspiration. Sessions are luxurious and relaxing—guests relax in a private nook, wearing noise-cancelling headphones and watching Netflix or listening to music if desired. The experience feels like being warmed from the inside out. Relax in the Scandinavian minimalist chic environment and enjoy refreshing teas and fruit post-treatment. dewsweathouse.com
