From a different point of view…

Lucie Octeau

Last week, I was on vacation. What does Spa Eastman’s blogmaster do while on vacation? Run for a lovely spa escapade with her tender half!

While I was there, I shared photos on our Facebook Fanpage but I wanted to show you more.

It’s been 20 years this year since I first visited Spa Eastman as a client. I was “this close” from a serious burnout and it kindda saved me from the big fall. Since then, my relationship with the Spa became a love affair. I now share the same values and I’ve adopted every side of the healthy lifestyle it offers: healthy eating, exercising, stress managing, using massage therapy and professional body care to improve my overall well-being… At the age of 48, I now feel better then when I was 25!

All this being said, it also means that since 1993 I’ve been staring at majestic Mount Orford from below. Last week, during this spa vacation with my husband, I decided to climb to the summit and enter the scene from behind. Here are a few photos of this expedition in the heart of the Eastern Townships.

The summit is 2800 ft high. It took us something like an hour to get there.

Once at the top, 4 belvederes allows us to embrace the spectacular sight.

The whole idea of this trek was to see Spa Eastman from the top. I’m almost pointing at it (but I moved!). My smile is pointing at it!
Great views again during our return. Here, the tip of Lake Memphremagog.
Back to the ground. The summit, from Spa Eastman’s pool side. And my funny husband.
After our massages, Thermo-Dorsal for him and Kobido for me, we ended the afternoon with a thermotherapy session, going from the infrared sauna to the polar bath, then to the outdoor hot tub, before finishing with an energising Igloo Shower.

Can’t wait to come back!
