VANCOUVER, B.C. May 1 2006 — Vancouver Island author, Lisa Rickwood, has partnered with Nanaimo’s newest day spa, Chakra’s Esthetics to create a spa package aimed at the busy urban woman. On Saturday, May 8th, a dozen such women will experience Rickwood’s self-care seminar, a catered lunch and spa treatments at Chakra’s Esthetics.
“The idea to create this escape was really based on providing women with a lasting experience. Through the seminar, those women will learn how to create an escape for themselves anytime. Our whole philosophy is to stop feeling guilty and start taking care of you,” explains Rickwood.
The seminar will include aromatherapy, positive imagery and breathing techniques for relaxation. Some less conventional concepts like Feng Shui, journaling and collaging will also be incorporated into the morning session. Participants will be treated to spa cuisine and then to a spa treatment of their choice.
Barb Schule of Chakra’s Esthetics liked the idea of an escape. “Chakra’s wants to create unique experiences for our clients, so when we were approached with this idea, we jumped at the opportunity,” says Schule.
Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase Lisa’s book, Escape the Pace: 100 Fun and Easy Ways to Slow Down and Enjoy Your Life. New products and escapes are also in development. For more information about Urban Spa Escapes, visit: www.escapethepace.com
