Welcome back to the third installment of our Support Local Series!
With an overwhelming year behind us, we can easily forget to take care of ourselves. Although self-care goes beyond just “treating ourselves”, sometimes it’s nice to do exactly that. Today, our team at Envol is feeling extra festive, and have curated a list of goods from our favourite local businesses in British Columbia that you can treat yourself to and support! So, keep reading to see our local picks!
Brianna’s Pick: THRIVE Wellness Clinic

They offer services such as naturopathic medicine, medical aesthetics, IV therapy, acupuncture, and more. They also offer medical and high-performance skincare products on their website. Brianna’s pick would be the signature IV facial.

Sometimes, treating yourself to a delicious meal is a form of self-care, right!? If you’re a foodie like we are, we recommend checking out The Red Accordion, located in Vancouver on Alberni Street. On top of serving us delicious food, there’s a homey and cozy vibe to this place, and local artists are invited to perform live music for the restaurant on the occasion!
