Happy Holidays! – December 2015 Newsletter


Reflections of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close; I have had time to reflect and be thankful for some of the wonderful opportunities we have had at Layers Wellness during the past year. We have met some incredible people, been privileged to share in helping our guests reach their wellness goals and have had the trust of our guests to try our new products and services. Barb-Christmas
In the past year alone we have brought to our community over fifteen new products and/or services! WOW! As I say in my spin class, “No rest for the Wicked!” We have exciting treatments for massage: Thai, K-Taping, Reflexology and Hot & Cold Stone. Our aesthicians have been trained in: spider vein removal (VBeam Perfecta), Electrolysis and Microblading.
Our weight loss and lifestyle management team saw the addition of: Mobile Personal Training, a van, Foam Rollers and Mobile Spray Tanning. To top that off Dr. Gatt, Doctor of Chinese Medicine joined our team. Some of her treatments include Herbs, Acupuncture, and Cupping.
Our team thanks every one of our guests for your support and dedication to Layers Wellness. We know you have a choice and we thank you for choosing Layers! Have a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the New Year.

Microblading Is Here – November 2015 Newsletter


Lest We Forget

My blog this month is about remembering, observing and commemorating.  On November 11 we get a chance to commemorate and pay thanks to over 100,000 Canadian citizens that lost their lives in World War 1 and 2. We get a chance to stop and be mindful of all the other Canadian citizens that gave up, and continue to give so much for most of the freedoms and rights we have today.
I bust at the seams to be a Canadian, I am proud when I travel in Europe and they discover I am from Canada and embrace me. I am so fortunate not only to live in the best country in the world but to call Fort McMurray my home. Not all provinces mark November 11 as a statutory holiday but I am glad Alberta does. On that note, Layers Wellness will be closed on November 11 and I hope to see the Layers team, our guests and family out showing our support and giving thanks to all the brave Canadians that make us so proud. Wear a poppy, give a minute of silence and say thanks.

Warm regards,

Barb Henning

…at least semi-permanently.


Warm up to beautiful, full, and natural-looking eyebrows with the rave review process of Microblading. After much anticipation, it’s FINALLY here! Emma and Jen have officially been trained in microblading and permanent makeup and are now accepting bookings! JenEmma-Maroon

To celebrate we’ve decided to offer an Introductory Offer on microblading. For just $350 you can give this eyebrow enhancing treatment a try!

But hurry, because we’re only offering this special deal throughout the month of November.
Call (780) 750-6888 or visit to set up your free consultation. 

What the heck is it?
Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their sparse eyebrows.
Microblading is a manual method used to deposit small stroke amounts of ink in the superficial layer of the skin to look like real hair. It is considered to be a semi-permanent tattoo. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. We can also do a darker, more appropriate colour, that would be complimentary with your skin tone and hair if you lean more towards the blonde side of things. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller-looking brow.

The results can last anywhere from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.

For more information and booking, please visit our Laser Services section on our website

Rose’s lifestyle change.

“I joined and started FitMetabolism January 13, 2015. I have lost 43 pounds so far and feel wonderful.

What I love most is I don’t feel like I’m dieting at all because we all hate dieting. I feel like I can still eat whatever I want I have just changed my lifestyle a little and it was easy with their coaching.

Now I have hired a personal trainer from there who is awesome comes to my home makes everything easier for me.

Joining Layer Wellness in Fort McMurray was the best thing I ever did in my life.”

Our Fall Open House was amazing!

Thank You Fort McMurray! You make this a great place to live! We can’t say Thank You enough! This community is always so supportive of our spa and we appreciate every single one of you.
We hope you had as much fun as we did on September 28th. It was our pleasure to help educate our wonderful customers with our laser tell all on our VBeam Perfecta and other new and improved services.
Snacks, drinks, and loads of laughs were had by all. Some lucky folks even went home with some great prizes like our gift basket shown below.

Spin It to Win It – September 2015 Newsletter


Spin It to Win It!

I wanted to focus this month on CHANGE, so how did I come up with the title “Spin It to Win It”? Read on!

Change can be scary for some, unwelcoming for many, and hard for most. Changes in our environment, lifestyle, emotions and habits take us out of our comfort zone and challenge our confidence, security and routines. Barb-Yellow

Our team at Layers is here to help you navigate through the scary world of change and put a different spin on viewing things that are outside your comfort zone. Think of us as your agents of change, spin doctors (or my favourite), spin sisters!

Spin 1 Fall

Lets spin the dreaded change from carefree, relaxing summer months to fall, followed much too closely by the long, cold, dark months of winter. Fall can be looked at as the end of summer with shorter day light hours, cooler mornings and a loss of fun loving summer activities. It is the lead into winter! Here I will spin it to win it and look at fall this way. I only have to mow my lawn twice a month, not every week, when I get up to teach my 6:00am spin class no one can see how ghastly I look and I can take the most amazing bug free walks through the trails and am left breathless at the beauty of the fall colours! Winning It!

Spin 2 Restrictions in Diet

Clients who are making changes to their weight are at times resentful of the restrictions to their food choices they make. Us spin sisters are there to open up the world of “can’t have” to “can have”.  A loss of weight can get you more energy, a better night’s sleep, a bigger wardrobe, maybe even a decrease in medication. Spin It to Win It!

There are so many countless ways to use this principle and we at Layers use this technique everyday to help facilitate, motivate, coach and support desired lifestyle changes.

We invite you to spin with us and let us help you to embrace change!

Warm regards,

Barb Henning

Owner/Weight Loss Coach

Unwanted blonde hair is no match for Jen Farrell!

We are ecstatic to announce that our esthetician Jen has been trained on electrolysis! Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs.
Laser hair removal alone can’t necessarily catch all the hair on tricky blondes and greys. Electrolysis does, for a fully permanent hair removal solution.



We’ve added yet another layer to our services!

The healing power of herbs.

Over the last couple of months our clients have been experiencing tremendous results with acupuncture. As you may, or may not know, acupuncture in conjunction with herbs can enhance the results that you experience.

Using herbs on their own can also help with things such as circulation, pain, digestive problems, weight loss, and fatigue just to name a few. Herbs can also replace the synthetic supplements that we use on a daily basis all while giving us the same positive results.

Our acupuncturist Jessica has herbs on hand and would love to guide you through the world of natural supplements. She has a vast knowledge of herbology that she’s longing to share that with the community of Fort McMurray. Call today to book a consultation.




We are so proud of you and your accomplishments. In a short time frame you have managed to reach your weight loss goals and transform your body into a fat burning machine.

Debbie was motivated and persevered through a few months of dedication. Through all of her dedication she has managed to shed 37 pounds and 30.5″!!! WOW!

From Fort McMurray Local Bev

I have been having problems with my knee for a few months and had an x-ray last fall. The doctor gave me a diagnosis of arthritis and told me to take some pills for the pain. I didn’t take the pills.

On Tuesday when I attended a spin class I could hardly do any of the class and the pain had moved up to my groin. I was given a recommendation to see Jessica for acupuncture at Layers. I’m not a needle person, so I was a bit nervous. However, Jessica made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. There was no pain, and for the most part, I didn’t even feel like the needles were going in. I knew immediately when I got off the table that my knee felt better! I was even able to walk 5KM that day and felt no pain.

“That Thursday was my next spin class and I was able to do the entire class with NO pain! What a relief!”

I will continue going back to Jessica for treatments.

 Set yourself up for success
Spring is in the air and we welcome it with open arms! Now is a great time of year to make those positive and lasting health and wellness changes. The longer daylight hours, warmer weather, and better roads and walking conditions leave us with an abundance of motivation.
Motivation is great to make lifestyle changes, but think of it as a muscle. It can become fatigued with overuse. Once it is tired we need to rely on our environment to form long lasting behavioural change. Set up your environment to be successful. Keep your gym bag by the door, veggies cut up in transparent containers, book a relaxation massage, or reward yourself with a spa treatment.

Easter Health Tips

Don’t do the Bunny Hop around Easter chocolate this year. Save that for the dance floor!

The Easter Bunny loves to leave little treats for the kids, some in the form of chocolate. For anybody watching what they’re eating, this can be a huge temptation. Instead of trying to fight the bunny we can do a few things.


If chocolate is something that gets brought into the house at this time of year, we can easily plan to participate in having a few chocolate eggs and counting them into our day.   For example, 10 mini eggs count as 1C and 1F. You can count out the 10 eggs in the morning and enjoy them all day.


If 10 mini eggs just isn’t going to be enough and you’ll end up eating the Costco size bag, maybe it’s just best not to have them in the house. Instead of buying chocolate, buy something that you won’t steal from your kids Easter basket. This will help you avoid the temptation AND you won’t have the kids crying because you’re eating the prizes from their Easter egg hunt. It’s a win/win for the family.


Try to get the chocolate out of sight and out of mind as soon as possible. Have the kids put the chocolate in their room, or even the freezer so it’s not top of mind. OR have them pick out the amount of chocolate they will eat without getting a tummy ache and donate the rest to the Food Bank or other non profit that accepts that as a donation.


Loyalty Program  

Stay tuned, it’s coming soon!

Layers Wellness appreciates every single client that walks through our doors!  We can’t say thank you enough and so we’ve decided we’ll be implementing a Loyalty Program.

The loyalty program will be for all services rendered, including massage!

We’ll be rolling out the program soon, so be sure to watch our Facebook page and Twitter account for more information.

Feeling tired is not always a bad thing

If feeling tired is a catalyst to change, then to me that is a good thing. You often hear people speak of how bad events, uneasy or negative feelings or even illness was an important thing because of what they learned and the growth they experienced personally, or how it was a catalyst for change.

I find so many of our clients move forward and make positive changes with their lives and lifestyles. They all start at different places with different challenges and situations but have commonality in perseverance and drive for change. We may feel we are alone, but know many have similar journeys.

Drawing Inspiration

A testimonial from Mary Fudge

“In February, 2014, after recently losing my father and dealing with other personal struggles, I was feeling depressed and hopeless.

“I decided that I needed to make some positive changes in my life.”

I was very tired, and felt that this was partly due to my weight. I decided to try the Ideal Protein diet and soon the weight loss started! This program felt easy to follow, and I was motivated to keep focused because I was accountable to my coaches at Layers Wellness. The program itself is very convenient, and I enjoyed the large variety of foods available. After 10 months of Ideal Protein, I am down a total of 90lbs and 63.5 inches!

I feel like I have come out of my shell; I am more outgoing and social, and happier with my new positive outlook on life. I realize that I must continue to be mindful about my wellness for the rest of my life, and I am now enjoying regular exercise, cooking healthier and smaller meals.”

– Mary Fudge
