Massage treatment until October 31 with Jennifer Ursell, Spa Therapist
Jennifer has been in the Spa/wellness industry for 10 years in Victoria. After completing her Spa Therapy program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, her accomplishments lead to becoming a Spa Instructor/supervisor for the Spa Therapy program.
When asked what made her become a Spa Therapist, Jennifer said “ I’ve always felt connected to nature and helping people. I enjoy working with my hands, and providing a more holistic, whole body healing.” One of Jennifer’s favourite things to do outside of work is to be immersed in nature, such as walking or hiking on one of the many forest paths in and around Victoria. Her love of nature is why the Elements Mountain Massage is one of her favourite treatments to give at the spa. It incorporates the four elements: the treatment starts with a foot soak representing water, than the client receives a smudge that encourages stuck or negative energies to be cleaned from the energetic field, warm BC Jade stones are massaged on the back & face and Solitude an Essential Oil blend is inhaled through out the experience.
Growing up in Winnipeg, MB, she was introduced to the healing power of Essential Oils. At the encouragement of her family, she went to university, but soon realized that wasn’t where her talents and passion were. She moved to Victoria to train in Spa Therapies and continued on to attain her Registered Aromatherapist and LaStone Therapist certifications.
Currently she shares the Lead Spa Therapist role with Elyse at Sante Spa Victoria.
Tip: An easy way to de-stress is to add 5 drops of an Essential Oil blend such as Solitude to a diffuser. Let it run for about an hour as you move about your day.
