Certified technician Kelly MacDonald knows firsthand the transformative power of modern skincare technology. After receiving successful treatments herself, she decided to pursue a career in med-spa services, studying with surgeon-turned-researcher Dr. Yousef Shihab at the Cosmedic Laser Institute in Vancouver. MacDonald is now the owner and operator of Neos Wellness Spa, a joint venture undertaken with her fiancé. She uses her practice as a platform to directly share her experiences with others instead of through impersonal skywriting. MacDonald fulfills that mission by keeping fingers on the pulse of the latest products and aesthetic developments in laser, radio-frequency, and ultrasound technology. Her spa features an entire staff of employees that are all physician-trained. After a complimentary consultation to discuss each patient's goals, she recommends the best approach to address acne and spider veins or fine lines and other signs of aging. MacDonald employs the multi-function laser's intense pulsed light to disable follicles and remove hair. To target excess weight, she performs radio-frequency treatments and ultrasonic wave techniques that shrink fat cells so much, Rick Moranis couldn't find them in his backyard.
Within Raynor Massage's new and expanded facility, international massage instructor Terry Masson and his team practices a modality called Raynor Massage. This unique brand of bodywork strays from traditional techniques used in registered massage therapy. Naturopath Brandon Raynor developed this system to resolve bodily and emotional tension with deep pressure applied at the patient's tolerance threshold. Raynor Massage calls for some degree of patient participation through directed breathing, a practice familiar to Masson through his experience with yoga, qigong, and having a pulse. He believes that his method is more effective than traditional massage therapy and can help clients eliminate chronic pain caused by injuries, increase mobility, and overcome tension and stress. World-class athletes agree. Since 2007, he's incorporated the modality while working with Olympic athletes and members of the British Women's National Rowing team.
