Spruce Body Lab is committed to post graduate training for it’s staff to ensure
that the treatments provided are safe and effective. The skin care team at Spruce is dedicated to educating clients about their skin, so high pressure sales are not a part of our vocabulary. Your therapist will complete your treatment by equipping you with the knowledge of how to improve your skin – it’s as simple as that.
Here’s some information about the Spruce Skin Care team:
Kathryn Sawers, Skin Care Therapist
Kathryn’s skin care career began in 2001, when she graduated from the Dominelli International College of Esthetics. She has worked at the skin care focused Kitsilano staple Beverly’s the Spa on 4th and the Vida Wellness Spa at the Sutton Place. In 2005, when Kathryn was introduced to the owners of Spruce Body Lab and their vision, she knew she had found her home.
Kathryn’s love for skin care lies in helping people to have the best skin possible- she is constantly motivated and inspired by working with her clients and helping them to see dramatic improvements in their skin. While working at Spruce Body Lab, Kathryn has had the fortune of learning Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage and Advanced Training for the Sciton Broad Band Light Source, also known as Intense Pulsed Light, to enhance her skin care knowledge and resources.
Kathryn recently went back to school part time to study Communications at Simon Fraser University, which has broadened her appreciation for social media; she currently contributes to Spruce Body Lab’s blog as well as LOV magazine. When she’s not working, Kathryn can be found in a yoga class, perusing Fashion blogs, trying out a new restaurant or sailing down Whistler mountain on her snowboard.
