3) Interesting facts about your product?

We offer medical grade and high performance skin care products. 

Healthy skin starts at home.

This is the same when it comes to our skin. Using high quality skincare products will assist in attaining and maintaining your skin’s best health while drugstores and cosmetic counters offer products that compromise your skin’s health.

I had the opportunity to enjoy a lovely facial at Spa Tru Face & Body Lounge previously. It was located at a hotel, so imagine the lucky hotel guests that visit there!

Who is Spa Tru?

1) When and why did you start your business?

I started a body contouring clinic in 2007 in Kelowna. Then, I moved to Orange County, California and opened up a second clinic before having two children.

Therefore, our first son was born in California where I discovered the product line, Dermaesthetics. Afterwards, we moved back with our 3 month old son back to Canada and opened up Spa Tru in Langley!

2) What is special about your business?

Since that we opened up Maple Ridge and Abbotsford, we have become the number one clinic in British Columbia for Botox and Filler. In addition, we made it to top 25 in all of Canada!

3) What else do you want to share?

Dermaesthetics is a medical grade skin care line that we use in all of our facials and Peels and micro-needling. It is a amazing skin care line that used to manufacture all of the top brands in the market. When the other brand started reducing active ingredients for more profits, Dermaesthetics created their own line to make the products more pure and more beneficial than others.

Vendor Feature: Bodahealth

I had my first cupping experience ever at Bodahealth! It was painless and extremely relaxing afterwards. I definitely would love to do this again!

“Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of heated cups. Its practice mainly occurs in Asia but also in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America.”Wikipedia

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.”- WebMD

Quote Of The Day: Volunteers

Image Courtesy of Quote Masters

Ever since I was in high school, I would volunteer. I volunteered as a summer camp helper, Farmer’s market tickets seller, trade show helpers and rescue animal shelter care taker. I enjoyed to help others to make things run smoother and to bring a smile to faces.

Unfortunately, there were people out there who thought that venting and raging to volunteers at events was tolerable. As a seasoned volunteer, I would stand up for the newer ones to defend them against these types of verbal lashes.

Thank you to the volunteers in the world for giving their time and love where others would not.

Wai Spa’s Body Contouring Treatment

It’s been over two years since I had a body contouring treatment. These treatments are usually uncomfortable while going through with it. After the treatment, muscles are usually extremely sore. But, the body takes you for it! Thank you, Wai Spa for this treat!

This treatment is a two-part procedure. First part is the manual massage that incorporates Kyung Rak technique along with regular technique. This helps to loosen up the muscles and starts the lymphatic drainage. The alternating sensations of soreness and relaxation helps to prepare the body for the second part.

Second part involves the R.F. machine.

The Radio Frequency Machine:

“Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin.

The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen.

RF therapy may help tighten loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen. 

A 2017 studyfound that 24 of the 25 people who underwent 5 to 8 sessions of RF therapy sessions saw an improvement in their body shape. Twenty-three people were happy with their results.”— Health Line

Conclusion

After a few hours, I definitely felt sore and tired. According to their other clients, better sleep and bowel movements are awaiting…. Excellent!

Remembering A Beautiful Dream

Image Courtesy of QuoteFancy

Dreams were often a place that repeated reality or when reality was less than ideal, a place to let my imagination run wild. Since the beginning of last year’s lockdowns, I had been following the ups and downs of a particular pop star and actor. I had discovered his drama series online accidentally. I did not know that he had a new series out! I had followed his other series before, so I immediately was captivated. After over 10 years, his appearance hadn’t changed much and I still found him funny (especially during outtakes).

Whenever I felt that the world was falling apart or life was so cruel, I would watch his live recordings of his daily life or his interactions online since everyone was staying home most of the time too! It would cheer me up quite a bit.

Naturally, one night, I had a beautiful and simple dream that he had finally found the love of his life after many years of being single. Yes, in the dream, it was me! What a dream!

As he was introducing me to the public, I woke up. However, I loved the feeling of being adored by this amazing person that I forced myself to go back to sleep. I was able to continue the dream until I really had to get up for the day. The warm and fuzzy feeling lingered for quite awhile.

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Life can be cruel and sometimes downright disappointing. It’s a pleasant feeling to be able to achieve the impossible sometimes.

Quote Of The Day: Blame And Karma

Image Courtesy of Anandway

For those who got blamed for most of the bad situations or happenings around the home or work place, this quote would be a good reminder. It often only took one or two mistakes. Then, from then on, those toxic family or friends to continue to point fingers at that particular Individual for all the future problems.

Let’s be honest. Who didn’t make any mistakes in their life? No one was perfect ever. Constantly, harassing others gave those people with low sense of self-worth a big ego boost. Instead of supporting others, stepping over others like stepping stones made them feel better and more superior.

When others made mistakes, it’s important to be kind about it. It could be frustrating. However, would you prefer to destroy the relationship and have no more future with that individual.

Or would you want that individual to curse you under the breath and look for a time to have their revenge?

However, this quote was a great way to face those who weren’t able to remove themselves from their chronic offenders. Sometimes, it’s not always possible to cut those toxic people out because of certain situations. Life could be complicated and cruel.

Art Inspiration: Snorlax Ramen

Anyone else feels like this Snorlax?

Not a care in the world

Just lie back

Relax

And toss that mouthful

Of delicious ramen

And its toppings

While enjoying

The fragrance

Steaming from

The bowl.
