Som Visao Urban Ultrasound Spa and Wellness Centre is a full-service luxury spa on South Granville that focuses on pampering the pre and post natal crowd. It is the first business in the Lower Mainland to target the holistic needs of women before, during and after pregnancy with services such as state-of-the-art 4D Ultrasound imaging to ‘baby belly facials’, pre-natal massage and fitness and nutrition consulting.

Som Visao offers the ultimate 3D – 4D Ultrasound Entertainment Imaging experience. The Ultrasound suite is outfitted with a 42” plasma screen television, soft oversized robes and a plush chaise for a partner, friend or family member. Som Visao uses the latest ultrasound and imaging technology – the Voluson 730 Ultrasound System. It is among the most trusted women’s healthcare systems available, capable of capturing clear, detailed three-dimensional images in real-time (3D) with the benefit of Bose sound experience to listen to baby’s heart beat (4-D). The machine captures real-time movement of the baby allowing you to see kicks, yawns, and even blinks.

Being pregnant is not a requirement to enjoy pampering and wellness at Som Visao but it may certainly be a benefit. The spa offers a wide range of treatments and services including facials, body wraps, manicures and pedicures, as well as waxing, threading, massage and laser-hair removal. The spa has recently added some cutting edge new services such as Pearl Smile Tooth Whitening and Lipolaser Fat Reduction. Som Visao carries only top quality spa products, such as Phytomer, Swiss Line by Dermalab and Guinot – all maternity safe and gentle for all skin types.
