Get to Know Us
The best way to get to know us is to come and meet us. But if you want to get a little bit of a head start on the conversation, this is us:
We are a part of Yukon Spaces, that means we are employee owned and operated! Yukon Spa started life as an idea, spawned from requests from guests for massage and facials during their stay. We took the idea and ran with it. In April 2021 Yukon Spa came to life as a way to solve problems and fill gaps in the provision of health care services and wellness services that were either missing from town or without sufficient resource to meet needs.
From its humble home in a coverted hotel room, we provided Raynor naturopathic massage treatments and a wide range of advanced medical aesthetics procedures. We brought the first laser therapies to Dawson City, the first fat reduction therapies and we continue to work towards bringing more firsts to Dawson City. Including the first day spa with facilities like a hot tub, sauna and more. The first clinical care centre with services like intravenous infusion therapy for support of complex condition, advanced nursing foot care, insurance medical assessments and more.
