Edmonton: Massage and Local Health Hot Spots
Edmonton: Massage and Local Health Hot Spots
From small towns to big cities, Mobile Massage caters to it all. Not only do we travel to clients living within Edmonton itself, but also surrounding areas such as Sherwood Park, Devon and so on. Contrary to popular belief Edmonton does have some extraordinary attractions, and travel-worthy sights. The city, although it can be known for its constant renos and construction– is home to many young families, University students and people from around the world coming to explore Canadian culture!
Edmonton is home to some very prestigious golf clubs that many business professionals, adventurer seekers and beginners to professionals travel to. Some of our top picks include:
Jagare Ridge Golf Club - located on the south side of Edmonton, this course is home to natural wildlife and forestry, while the luxury still remains. It opened in the late 1990’s, with the goal of being a champion-level course, while still preserving the natural land surrounding the area.
Lewis Estates Golf Course - surrounded by a family-friendly neighborhood, this course is located on the west side of the city. It’s award-winning design is one of the region’s most sought after golf destinations by golfers of all levels.
Victoria Golf Course - for those of you new to golf or just starting out, we recommend trying the Victoria Golf Course. This is Edmonton’s oldest city-run course, and looks on to the Alberta Legislature building as well as the University of Alberta buildings.
The River Valley
The Edmonton River Valley is the largest maintained park in Canada, with tons of great walking trails and parks for you and your family and friends to enjoy! Dogs are welcome too, so long as they are on a leash in most areas. The valley itself is nearly 50km, but you are able to explore various paths, leading all over the city! This is a popular place for photographers for the beautiful scenery, running clubs, walkers, and picnics. So grab your family or your friends and come enjoy a little sunshine!
Skiing and Snowboarding
Edmonton and the surrounding areas do have a few ski hills, but if you are seeking mountains, we recommend travelling further toward the Rockies. For more local skiing and snowboarding, check out:
Rabbit Hill Snow Resort - located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan river, Rabbit Hill is a favourite to most Edmonton Natives for its park. It is also the largest ski hill in theEdmonton area, so we recommend adding it to your list for winter activities!
Snow Valley - if ever you’ve driven in Edmonton, you’ve likely seen Snow Valley, as it’s located just off the Whitemud Freeway. This hill caters more towards beginner level skiers and snowboarders, as well as it functions as a not-for-profit organization.
Edmonton Ski Club - located in Gallagher Park, this hill offers a scenic view of the downtown core. It is home to many ski teams in the winters, and is a great place for a day spent with the family!
After skiing and snowboarding, we know you’ll be sore. Our therapists at Mobile Massage will take the treatment to you, so you don’t have to lift a finger– let alone put on another uncomfortable set of ski boots. Sayonara sore muscles and knots and hello deep sleep and relaxation. Having the treatment in your own room, home or office allows you more time to spend with your family, work or just doing what you love! Let us do the work so that you don’t have to.
The University of Alberta Botanical Gardens
Previously known as the Devonian Botanical Gardens, this spot is a great way to take in some beautiful scenery and to connect with nature. There is a Patio Cafe on site for light refreshments during your visit, but keep in mind that outside food and beverages are not permitted. We recommend visiting the website at www.botanicgarden.ualberta.ca prior to your visit, for further details on bookings and availability.
Along with it’s growing arts and cultural scene, Edmonton is home to a vast majority of Alberta favorites when it comes to locally-sourced and healthy restaurants! Check out some of our favourites:
Cafe Mosaics/ The Moth - these local spots are owned by the same people, but located in the downtown core and on Whyte Ave (two popular spots for shopping, business and events). They cater to vegans, vegetarians and offer some gluten free options as well. Their ingredients are locally sourced and organic, but what’s better is the vibe in their restaurants is very modern-bright-happy and always bursting with plants!
Kb & Co. - another vegan fave, but if you’re from Edmonton, Calgary or Kelowna you will have likely have heard of this biz (or are probably annoyed by now by the amount of people talking about it). It is so good, and even if you aren’t vegan, their smoothies are to die for, but what really gets people coming back for more, are their variations of avocado toast (#basic) and their twist on a BLT, but make it animal friendly. Be warned, it can be a bit pricey, but the aesthetic, and the food are worth it!
Pip - this cute cafe is in the heart of old Strathcona, where you’ll find the farmers market and more local shops. Pip does brunch and dinner but they are most known for their crafty cocktails and innovative sandwiches. They offer limited seating, so get there quickly if you plan on staying awhile.
