Renovations are Complete. Come and See!

When attending the Alberta Gift Fair in Edmonton we attended a seminar by Natalie Tan with the topic of what to put where and why. Natalie focused on effective planning for today’s customer. She mentioned that IKEA was her go to business to get shelving to create this new effective look. At the end of the seminar Natalie offered a Free 20 minute consultation to anyone who wanted help. Geraldine left her business card hoping that we would be chosen. After lunch the Spa name was announced over the speaker system and we made our way to the show room. Geraldine quickly opened her phone and showed pictures of the spa and the wall she was wishing to change. Before they knew it Natalie had a plan on paper with ideas of color, position of the shelves using the triangle focal point and to add plenty of lighting. Shopping began as soon as we left the Gift Show to set the plan in motion.

 

 

Geraldine decided on shelving from Home Hardware, drawers from Home Depot and additional shelves from IKEA. Shopping continued in their local Guy’s Furniture to find the right side table and lamp to compliment the waiting area. A peaceful sanctuary to serve tea in beautiful new tea service sets.

 

 

 

Sunrise Wellness Spa has a new and inviting look to Eminence collection

 

Dennis Fisher patiently took 2 days installing each shelf. 

The feature wall is very inviting to you our customer. Each Eminence Line is strategically placed so we can professionally address your skin concern.

Testimonial By Robin

Testimonial by Robin

I have been coming to Sunrise Wellness Spa since 2011.  I had my first facial in 2012.  I absolutely love the Eminence products, they are the greatest most effective skin care product.  I just celebrated my 40th birthday, my husband and I stopped at a gas station… I was asked to produce my ID!!!  Thank you Eminence and Sunrise Wellness Spa for my youthful look.

Robin came to Sunrise Wellness Spa to Basque in the royal treatment of a full body wrap to detoxify and rejuvenate. The dry brushing was invigorating and sluffed off the dead skin cells preparing my body for the Moor Mud which aids in the relief of many disorders. I experienced less muscular aches and pains, silky smooth skin and my joints felt young and youthful. I floated out of the treatment room. This is a feeling I have never felt before. I will be doing this again so I can experience all of the wraps the spa offers. I hugged every staff member for their great treatment and attention to detail.

“You are the greatest”

Boldijarre Writes Back…

Eminence is great for our teens and is very effective. We have Clear and Calm skin lines to address specific skin types plus we carry Eight Greens which helps with hormonal issues.
Our Jenifer Deuchar was so pleased with the results, she wrote Boldijarre the President of the company to thank him.
Our regional representative Christel Salomon was overwhelmed that Boldijarre replied to her letter.

Invocation ~ First Nation’s Aromatherapy

NATIVE ESSENCES   

Written By Aigle Bleu

birdFor native peoples of all the continents, the truths and realities of the world, whether spiritual or philosophical, lie within nature itself. They have been inscribed directly there by the primordial intelligence that we, descending from the First Nations of North America, call Great Spirit. Although various names are used depending on the culture or religious tradition, reference is always to the same Creative Intelligence. Invocations goal is to convey a philosophy and spirituality of life in balance and harmony with nature

 

blue-eageI chose to convey this ancestral wisdom through all the activities of my life. I have therefore written books, composed music and created the Native Essences, a specific form of First Nations aromatherapy. Two Native Essences have been developed to date: Chiiyaam and Miwahu.

miwahThe idea behind the creation of Chiiyaam came to me as I was helping First Nations patients from the Far North being treated in an intensive care unit. I had been called in as a First Nations’ medicine-man, but it was impossible for me to practice the traditional purification rites, since they imply the use of smoke (cedar, sage and sweet grass).

 

I therefore turned to essential oils, adding sweet grass extract and corn spirits to the white sage and Canadian cedar. The first blend turned out interesting but its smell was unpleasant. That is when I decided to train with a renown French perfumer – Michel Roudnitska – and an essential oils specialist – Mikaël Zayat. I was then able to work on creating an essence that would have a pleasant fragrance and be effective at the same time. I undertook a spiritual search as well: my creation had to qualify as an offering if it was to be equivalent to traditional smudging. I therefore included a ritual aspect to the manufacturing process. I call this encoding since it adds specific intentions to the liquid, such as “purification”, “protection”, “healing” and “inspiration”. The result was very satisfying and my essence seemed even more effective than traditional smudging.

I realized that it could be useful to many people. So I decided to add a purifying plant essence to the formula—one for each human type: lavender for the European type, frankincense for the African type and sandalwood for the Asian type. “Invocation’s Liquid Smudge”, now called Chiiyaam, was born!

Many therapists use Chiiyaam. Chiiyaam purifies the environment and people much like traditional smudging. To purify yourself, simply spray Chiiyaam onto the palms of your hands and move them, palms open towards you, around your body. To purify a room, spray Chiiyaam towards its four corners and, for an object, either spray it directly or use your hands, moving them around the object. Therapists have appreciated the power of its immediate effectiveness and the fact that it clears fast, leaving a light and very pleasant scent.

The story of Miwahu began a few years ago when the Liquid Smudge, now Chiiyaam, was still the only Invocation essence. It all started with a request from the ladies working in our offices for a more feminine Native Essence. I imagined using sweet grass as the main ingredient, and worked for nearly two years to select the plants that would harmonize with this sacred herb. The resulting fragrance, Grâces, turned out to be too expensive to produce. But I have high hopes that it will be available someday, and am now working on a counterpart for men.

Meanwhile, I turned to French high perfumery for help in manufacturing a decently priced Energizing Native Essence. Perfume master Michel Roudnitska was instrumental in the process of creating Miwahu to which I gave a few pointers in its final stages.

The selection of plants used creates a synergy that develops in time like a symphony. The top note, featuring bergamot and mandarin, is light, conveys enthusiasm and stimulates creativity. The middle note, or heart note, with clary sage and vetiver, is floral and slightly heady. It attracts beneficial energies and encourages them to remain. The base note is deeper and persistent. It features sweet grass, oak moss, cistus and vanilla.

I perform an ancestral First Nations ritual on each batch of Invocation’s Native Essence—for both Chiiyaam and Miwahu. This amplifies the properties as it confers the following encoding and intentions TO Miwahu: attracting beneficial energies, favorable circumstances, clarity and harmony.

The use of Miwahu complements that of Chiiyaam. Ideally, it is best to use Chiiyaam first, to appease, soothe and purify. It is immediately effective and soon clears. After a fifteen-minute wait, Miwahu can be used to foster dynamism, enthusiasm and creativity. It will come into effect gradually and its fragrance develops throughout the day when it is applied to clothes or directly on the skin.

Five other fragrances are now available; forming a series called The Five Elements. 5-elements

Holiday Plan

HOLIDAY PLAN ~ Geraldine Barrett

As summer quickly passes I reflect on my holiday and how I altered my plans.

I had planned to travel southern Saskatchewan, visit family and celebrate my mom’s 95th birthday for my holiday.  In between I would visit some new towns to take in their museums and restaurants. Tourism Saskatchewan has a great Discovery Guide; “See Sask First”. There are many hidden treasures in our beautiful province. However; my plan changed quickly.  My oldest sister was moving into a condo and needed to be out of her house.  She had a lifetime of treasures to go through and was exasperated as how to get started.  I made the decision to “shift gears” and help her.

Many of us experience intense days getting ready to leave on holidays and are exhausted before we even leave.  Cranky none the less! I decided I needed some TLC so I booked a body wrap and a facial at Sunsera Spa in Saskatoon as I headed out on my holiday. Rather than rush down the highway eating a sub I enjoyed a nice supper at the Granary in Saskatoon.  I had a wonderful waiter who added the perfect touch to my holiday.

The next day my sister and I surveyed what needed to be done and how to proceed. I had a plan in my head and we started our task. Pauly who is a dear friend was a faithful worker alongside us.  More friends showed up along the way to pitch in.  The hours were long and emotions were high at times.  It’s hard to pack up memories. I’m so glad I’d had my spa treatments. I was more relaxed and energized to work and deal with all the emotions with love.

I managed a visit to my youngest sisters’ home who lives 20 km from Grasslands Park where we grew up. Three of us 4 girls plus our niece and her husband did a tour and visited the family and grandparents farm.  What memories. I slept over at my sisters’ home that evening which was wonderful.  I spent an hour walking through her beautiful yard as it is like the Bouchard Gardens. Her husband is so creative and particular.

We celebrated mom’s 95th birthday taking many pictures and making memories. I also took a drive to the lake and had a nice visit with my son and his beautiful family.

Back to sorting, purging, cleaning and hugs or we would never have gotten through this undertaking. The garage sale took place on Thursday from 6 – 8 and Friday from 9 – 4. It was in the garage – driveway – the lawn – the patio – the deck – and 2 rooms in the house. We were busy! By 9:00 pm Friday night the garage was clean and the patio and deck tables were gone. Loretta & I had a dance in the garage! We were exhausted as 12 – 14 hour days had taken a toll on us.

I booked a body wrap & a full body massage at Wrapture Spa in Moosejaw. I was exhausted and needed to rejuvenate.  The Eminence wrap was very relaxing and the deep tissue massage was invigorating as the stress and tension oozed out of my body. Vicki did an amazing job.

Why am I sharing this story? I want to emphasize how important having a full body massage and/or a body wrap before and after a holiday can make the difference from enjoying a holiday or ENDURING it while secretly wishing you were home. What did you learn from my story? Plan your holiday – schedule your massage and add it to your holiday budget. For you and your spouse. The benefit is you will be more relaxed, less stressed and ENJOY each other during your holiday.

Conclusion: Make your holiday a wonderful success. Have a massage before you leave and be sure to keep the appointment. Everyone will love you! Especially You!

Bride to Be

Bride to Be

Over the years I have heard new brides share how little they remember of their wedding day.

Preparation is so intense and they want everything to be perfect. However; the bride forgets about herself….. To look after herself…. Eat Healthy. Get enough sleep. And book a few massage sessions to prepare starting 2-3 months prior to the wedding and the week of the wedding.

There are several ways the bride can do this:

These are some ideas that the bride to be has done in Sunrise Wellness Spa.

  1. 3 Generation Spa Day with the Bride to Be that included – mud wraps, full body massage and a facial. Each lady lived in different province so they spent this time reconnecting before the wedding.

2. A mature Bride to Be had her long-time friend attendees all meet at the spa to have a massage and facial. Three of her friends never knew one another so it was a time to meet and connect before rehearsal. They loved this idea and even had lunch in the Solarium.

3. Another Bride to Be organized her decorating committee at the hall and while they were decorating she came for a full body massage. This was her time to de-stress and enjoy her day as the queen.

  1. Yet another Bride to Be had to gift of a spa experience from her bridesmaids. They arranged for the Bride to Be to have a facial and a full body massage while her attendees had pedicures and facials. They enjoyed a nice lunch in the Solarium together.

Whatever helps you de-stress and relax you have to take time for it.

Your wedding is an important day in your life. Take the time to remember it.
