Brandi Heuchert, a self-described “prairie girl,” merges her small-town Saskatchewan upbringing with seven years of experience in her trade. Brandi's interest in holistic and western medical practices led her to the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapy, from which she received her registered massage therapist designation. Recently relocated to Saskatoon’s Fitness Focus gym, Brandi specializes in an array of massage modalities, such as relaxation, therapeutic, and Thai massage, as well as hot-stone therapy and cranial-sacral therapy. Brandi accepts both daytime and evening appointments Tuesday–Saturday.
Spa Academy's director of education, Veronica Lynne-Swirsky, taps into more than two decades of experience as she leads a team of professional educators in training a new generation of aestheticians. In their sleek salon and spa, instructors and students work side by side. Teachers might give clients mani-pedis or full sets of acrylic nails as their students apply makeup, wax away unwanted body hair, or revitalize skin with facials. And even though their services are discounted, students focus on lavishing clients with a quality that rivals what's offered by their already-certified counterparts or by those newfangled robo-aestheticians.
Stationed within the stress-free confines of Hocus Pocus Hair Studio, Tara Jones works her own magic on clients’ nails, eyes, and skin. Tara’s manicure and pedicure treatments begin with relaxing soaks, after which she trims, buffs, and massages hands and feet and brushes nails with standard or gel polishes. She also accentuates sultry gazes and livens up portraits of family ancestors with eyelash extensions and brow tinting. Brows too wild to be tamed—and body hair on the chin, lips, and bikini line, for that matter—succumb to swift waxing treatments.
Practitioners from RV Mobile Massage and Spa Therapies perform treatments that date back 4,000 years, but they deliver those treatments using a modern invention—the automobile. Patrons relax at home or continue pretending their head isn't stuck between bannisters as a talented massage therapist travels to their location to ease muscle tension and stress. Alternatively, patrons can travel to the company's studio for treatments. There, massage therapists wield oils and heat smooth stones, which hold warmth and allow it to seep slowly into taut muscles.
Within the comforting confines of a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere, SunSera Salons' staff curates an extensive cache of hair, skin, and nail services for events such as birthday and bachelorette parties at nine locations. Massage therapists knead away aches with help from aromatherapy and hot stones while stylists shear and sculpt strands to better frame faces or photos of celebrities taped to faces. Stand-up, horizontal, and UV-free tanning beds outfit epidermises with a golden glow, and meticulous manicures and pedicures headline a lengthy roster of aesthetic services, such as hydrating facials and cellulite treatments. Technicians tackle unwanted body hair with lasers and wax, targeting offending fuzz on such body areas as legs, arms, and extra elbows.
Elegance Saskatoon's cosmetic procedures entwine Eastern modalities with non-invasive Western technology. Using this mix, the staff of certified technicians can help patients vanquish flab with an FDA-approved LipoLaser, banish unwanted hair with laser hair-removal services using the LightSheer XC diode laser, and fade discoloration with teeth whitening. No matter what aesthetic treatment patients choose, they first undergo a comprehensive consultation to discuss their concerns, goals, and favourite celebrity baby names.
