Shop at Anarres and Enjoy $20 Off Massage!


I've cooked up a co-promotion with my massage therapist, Tanya Pillay, a Registered Massage Therapist who has helped me through a number of physical crises with skill and compassion. Tanya gave me exercises to do daily on my own and referred me to an expert in diagnostics that solved a 6-year mystery for me. I wholeheartedly recommend a massage with Tanya whether you are looking for help with an injury, with chronic pain, or simply need to enjoy freedom from discomfort and profound relaxation.

Here's our offer:
* Spend $50 at Anarres Apothecary* online or in-store and receive a coupon to:
* Receive $20 off a massage with Tanya Pillay if you are a new massage client, or
* Receive $20 off a hypnosis session with Tanya Pillay if you are an existing massage client.
* Redeem the coupon anytime before January 31, 2023.

* Remember that Anarres Apothecary is a separate business from The Hermit's Lamp. This offer is for customers who spend $50 or more with Anarres.

Tanya offers therapeutic massage primarily over the clothing. Her major influences are Thai, shiatsu, and myofascial techniques. Tanya practices at Dufferin and College in Toronto near Anarres Apothecary.

FROM TANYA: I love Anarres Natural Health Apothecary - it's full of natural body care and items for waste reduction in the home, which means it's better for the health of people and the planet than conventional equivalents. And it's independently owned and operated. But it won't stay open without more customers, and the pandemic has really dinged that with online shopping at megastores.

To this end, I offer $20 off for massage therapy or hypnosis service or training for the first 100 people who spend $50 or more at Anarres Apothecary. This offer is only for indoor services during the day (10 am-5 pm, Monday to Friday) starting today until January 31, 2023, and for new clients only. Existing clients can access this discount with a discounted gift certificate from me for someone else (gift a 30-minute massage valued at $50 for only $30). Or existing massage clients can use this offer to try a hypnosis session and vice versa.

I support this business because it's aligned with my values - my practice is paperless with minimal laundry (I work over clothing) using natural cleaners when possible. Please consider checking out this store even if you are not interested in my services cuz that's a win for all of us:-)

Anarres Apothecary hours are Tues-Sat, Noon-7 pm, and can be found at 1076 Bloor ST W M6H1M6 or Just email your Anarres Discount and mention in the online booking notes when you spend $50 or more in-store or online at Anarres, and the discount will be applied when you pay at the end or contact me to set a time for gift certificate pickup - the recipients don't need to know that you spent $30 for $50 - the price you pay will not be indicated on the certificate.

If anyone is wondering why I'm willing to discount my already low rates like this: I am still using products from workshops with Tracey made over 10 years ago. She shares her knowledge and strives toward providing goods with maximum ethical considerations. We are both parents and I know how hard it can be to balance business and family commitments. We have had similar struggles but we're still here because we love what we do and we care deeply about doing what's best vs what's most profitable - often at our own expense. I don't want to see our neighbourhood overrun by corporate capitalism. Everyone needs soap, right? It's here including bulk unscented liquid hand soap, which I filled into recycled bottles for my practice from a Zero Waste Toronto Trading Zone that Tracey (Anarres owner) created.
