Fun fact about me: I have a daughter that is a Bodé-trained esthetician

 

Bio: My background as an Ontario-trained Orthotherapist lead me to include esthetics in my practice so that I could help my clients with a wider range of concerns. In 1999, I opened Little House Spa outside Ottawa; an 80 acre destination spa with log cabin treatment rooms, gardens and walking paths.

Over time, I saw a noticeable increase in men attending the spa. I identified a need for men to have their own space within the overly-feminized industry of spas. In 2004, I moved into downtown Ottawa and acquired Bodé Spa.

In 2015, I opened a new Bodé location in Toronto, the second Bodé Spa in Canada. This private studio was a personal project which I operated simultaneously as the Ottawa location and it grew very quickly.

Due to my experience, I have been branded as “the Grooming Guru”. I have travelled across Canada and some American cities to teach male grooming, and have been hired as a spa consultant. First and foremost, I instilI my expertise with our Bodé therapists, helping them to become experts of their own.

My passion is education, and I am excited to be doing more of it. I believe that Bodé can be an experience that goes beyond the walls of our spa; treatment, education, product development and home care. Bodé is an attitude, one of expertise.

Vanessa

Esthetician, MP

I speak: English, Spanish

Expert: Facials and skin care

Services I provide: Body grooming (wax/shave/clip), Facial skin care, Massage, Pedicures, Manicures, Body scrubs, Back treatments, Tinting, Consultations

Fun fact about me: I love “conspiracy theories”. If you hear of a new one, feel free to share it during your visit.

 

Bio: Prior to being an Esthetician, I did nutritional counselling and personal training. I enjoyed the end results that my clients would achieve, but the process can be long. In 2015 I started doing eyelash extensions and tinting and I liked the satisfaction of the immediate result. That love for quicker results is one of the reasons I became an Esthetician.

In March 2018 I joined the Bodé team. Our clients are great to work with and I derive pride in the work that I do, by combining my previous experiences in fitness counselling with my knowledge of estheticss.

I speak: English, French

Expert: Foot care (Certified Master Pedicurist), skin care ingredients

Services I provide: Body grooming (wax/shave/clip), Facial skin care, Massage, Pedicures, Manicures, Body scrubs, Back treatments, Tinting

Fun fact about me: my hair color changes every few months

 

Bio: My initial professional training was in physical education to be a high school teacher. I joined Bodé in 2012 as front desk and quickly grew into management. I became a therapist in 2016 under Dan’s thorough mentorship, allowing me to work directly with clients and to gain a complete understanding of Bodé’s operations, front and back.

In February 2017, I acquired Bodé Spa and I continue to work closely with Dan on building the “Bodé experience” upon the core values that Dan established. Of Bodé Spa’s four pillar values, the biggest one that I cherish is building relationships. We aren’t just in the business of providing esthetic services, but in improving other’s well-being. That can only start with a genuine connection.

Sarah

I speak: English, Arabic

Expert: currently developing my expertise in massage and body sugaring

Services I provide: Body grooming (wax/shave/clip), Facial skin care, Massage, Pedicures, Manicures, Body scrubs, Back treatments, Tinting

Fun fact about me: I enjoy metal and alternative music, although you wouldn’t guess by meeting me

 

Bio: My career started in cosmetology (makeup), but I found that I wanted to help clients reach their best version from the inside rather than just from the outside. As an Esthetician, I am able to make these changes and see the satisfaction on clients’ faces after working with me.

I joined the Bodé team in September 2018, and I’m enjoying the expertise and the education shared here.  I’m happy to be at a spa that allows me to educate clients as well as treat.

Lisa

Esthetician, MP

I speak: English, Polish

Expert: Facials

Services I provide: Body grooming (wax/clip), Facial skin care, Massage, Pedicures, Manicures, Body scrubs, Back treatments, Tinting,

Fun fact about me: I am a novice Crossfitter and foodie at heart

 

Bio: Esthetics for me is more than just looking good; it is about having confidence. When we are confidant, we can change our lives. That’s one of the reason I moved away from cosmetology (makeup) and became an Esthetician.

I joined the Bodé team in September 2018 because I want to break the stigma that esthetic services and self-care should not be part of men’s lives. Working at Bodé means that I am given the tools and the time to educate my clients and to help treat their concerns in a safe, non-biased environment.
