Village Spotlight

The Landing Spa & Studio crew

The Landing Spa & Studio

The Landing Spa & Studio opened its doors on February 1, 2016, after extensive renovation that took the better part of 2015 to complete.

Recalling Canning’s original moniker, “Apple Tree Landing”, owner Melany Rand thought “The Landing” would be a nice name to honour the Village’s history and reflect how people feel about having services at her “shop.” Melany explains, “I was thinking that when people enter the shop feeling welcomed to enjoy our services, then hopefully they feel like they have “landed” somewhere where they could take a little break and stay a while.”

The Landing currently offers therapeutic massage therapy, reflexology, athletic therapy, acupuncture, professional hair styling, and esthetic services. They also have an infrared sauna and a tanning bed, as well as a retail section filled with a large selection of hair and skin products.

The studio component offers regular yoga classes in a room that overlooks the picturesque Habitant River and an ever-changing surrounding topography, with plenty of wildlife to observe.  The studio space is also available for rent to the public for gatherings or events.

“It’s the people that work in the shop who really help to exemplify the professionalism and success of a business. I credit all the wonderful people I get to work with every day, as well as an amazing clientele, to helping make the Landing what is, and will continue to become! It has also been wonderful starting up a business in the Village of Canning with respect to how well we’ve been received by the community and by other local businesses. It’s very gratifying when we can support and complement one another.”
