The Urban Spa is planting its feet firmly in the sand and stating it’s purpose for all to see. What we do is so unique, we had to invent a word: PERCEPTIONAL

Perceptional is defined as a Personal and Exceptional Spa Experience. That’s what The Urban Spa stands for.

There are 3 components to our purpose.

  • Personal: The Urban Spa doesn’t just provide services, we personalize all of our services.
  • Exceptional: The Urban Spa strives to make every visit exceptional. That doesn’t mean good, doesn’t mean great, it means EXCEPTIONAL. We want to make an impact on your life!
  • Experience: The Urban Spa no longer offers services, we offer experiences. Every encounter with our clients leads to an experience. We’ve invested heavily to make sure The Urban Spa provides an experience like no other. From the Nespresso and Starbucks coffee bars, to the curated music experience to the world menu only offered at The Urban Spa, we strive to be PERCEPTIONAL.

To experience our “Perceptionalness” (another word we invented) call us at 705-741-1212 or book online.

Located on the main floor of a beautiful historic building in the most historic parts of Peterborough (East City) The Urban Spa has served over 4576 clients who have trusted us with their health and wellness since and we strive daily to being different and making a difference.

FullSizeRender-3Jessica Pilon, Level 1 Registered Massage Therapist: “I graduated in 2007 from Fleming College and started right into the spa industry in Cobourg. It wasn’t long at all before I fell in love with the setting. I truly enjoy making people relaxed and ease away their stress, especially in today’s high pressure world. I spent many years in my private practice at a spa in Bridgenorth and then transitioned to the clinical setting at a chiropractic office. My love for the spa industry prevailed and I was drawn back to the essence of the spa. I fell into fitness a few years ago and now love exercising and promoting healthy living.  I enjoy guiding and helping people to healthier way of living, mind, body and spirit.” Book an appointment with Jessica online… or read fun facts about Jessica, click here!




stuart bell urban spa peterboroughStuart Bell, Level 1 Registered Massage Therapist: ” I was born and raised in Belleville. I grew up with two older sisters who were always asking me rub their back or give them a massage. My father also worked in a factory and would come home extremely tired and with a sore back which I would always try and help with. Since I was helping my family with it, I decided that I would go learn how to do it properly and help out more than just my family. I moved to Peterborough to go to Fleming College and I graduated the 3 year program. I am now starting my career with an amazing team at The Urban Spa and I can’t wait to help the Peterborough public!” Book an appointment with Stuart online… or read fun facts about Stuart, click here!

Madisen Reid, Level 1 Esthetician:
 1The newest addition to the Urban Spa’s amazing list of team members. Madi is a great aesthetician with an eye for details. Her favourite service to give is the Urban Spa Facial and she loves receiving Relaxation Massages. It just so happens she’s an Ottawa Senators fan and it also just so happens the owner of The Urban Spa is an Ottawa Senators fan… I’m not saying that had anything to do with the decision to have Madi be a part of The Urban Spa (LOL!). Madi’s appetite for learning and her on-going pursuit of being better is what sets her apart and makes her the perfect addition to The Urban Spa in Peterborough. Read more about Madi here or Book an appointment with Madi online…

Cole Leptick, Level 2 Registered Massage Therapist: Peterborough has been my home for the past 10 years and I could not imagine living anywhere else. I took a chance and left my home town in Northern Manitoba in order to find myself, I ended up finding more than I could have imagined.

My greatest accomplishments have been completing the Massage Therapy Program and becoming a Registered Massage Therapist. It has been an honour to serve Peterborough and the Kawarthas for 4 out of my 5 years of practice. I love working with my clients in helping them achieve their health goals. I am a firm believer in the power of touch. Living in this fast-paced world we often forget about self care when it is in fact one of the most important keys to a healthy life style.225px-Peterborough_This_Week_Logo
