Sunrise Wellness Spa’s Transformation!

Our New Look!!!………….. Where are we going from here??

With 35 Years behind us, I have reflected over the many steps of change that have brought us to the edge of retirement. This is a journey and there have been many bends in the road along the way.

When I first started I visited a consulting firm in Edmonton. After many hours of brainstorming I reluctantly removed “Mon-Gee” from my business name, a name that meant a lot to me. “Mon” was used because it represented my father’s surname and “Gee” for Geraldine. However it did not have ‘sales’ appeal. We developed a new marketing plan and expanded the business into a spa. Then came the big change. A computer program would make business more efficient so I embarked on the technology world.

When I first started Pat Welter of Masterhand Designs was launching his career and made me my first sign to set up at #26 Brentwood Trailer Court.

In 2000 when I purchased the police barracks, Pat developed the beautiful blue sign that adorned the front lawn for 15 years. We ventured into new colors at the spa so a great way to start off the new look was a beautiful new sign created by Pat! Pat worked hard and brought color and meaning to the amazing sign that was ready for our 35th Anniversary on August 20th. Paul Marshal; a welder and great friend of Pat’s, said to me that the Spa’s new sign is some of Pat’s best work. We are so proud of it!

We added butterflies and flowers to the spa trademark and chose lavender and pink to bring a calming effect to the ambiance. Kait shared her talent of colors and decor, giving birth to a total new look. We transferred this new vibe of colors and images through-out the treatment rooms in the spa and onto our business cards and brochures.

The Butterfly is the symbol of transformation. A caterpillar spins itself a cocoon and emerges as a beautiful butterfly. This is the feeling we want our clients to have when they leave the spa. We want them to feel new and fresh, with renewed balance and beauty. We want them to feel transformed and invigorated.

I will share the history of the colours that Pat so meticulously shared as he designed the sign. It compliments the healing that colors bring us. The study of color therapy is fascinating.

White represents all colors to create balance and harmony. The Blue is a cooling color and helps relieve inflammation, headaches, and high blood pressure. Brown represents the earth so helps with body stability and grounding. Magenta regulates the adrenaline and heart activity. Violet/Purple stimulates the spleen & white blood cells to increase your immunity & relieve emotional stress. Indigo purifies the blood stream. Yellow strengthens the nerves, stomach, liver, and intestines. It also speeds up the digestion. Orange increases the thyroid, stimulates the lungs, the digestive system and relieves muscle cramps & spasms.

To complete the image Pat has brought new life to our display boards for trade shows and Christmas craft fairs. Our new vertical banner will give a great visual to all who walk by. It will give a lasting impression.
