Set your summer up for success.

With summer upon us, it is a great time to get outside and enjoy your local getaways with friends, family or just a little you time!

People look forward to the break from their regular work routines and family schedules, however the lack of structure can also cause us to over indulge. This can be extremely stressful and make the summer a little less enjoyable.

Please take the time to set yourself up for summer success. Just like planning and packing the sunscreen, sun hats, water bottles and the bug spray to make your summer outings safe and stress free, planning and packing our food can make the summer stress free!

Check out our tips to help you stay on track this summer! Safe Travels!!

Tips and tricks for the healthiest summer yet.

We all love summer. The sun, beaches, tans, BBQ’s and all of the other wonderful celebrations that summer brings. How can you not love it?

Here at Layers we understand that summer is limited time and we love to enjoy every minute of it. We also understand that it can be a hard time for dieters. Here are a few tips to help you avoid a gain of weight this summer.

  • Try adding foods instead of avoiding them! It’s hard to always be the one at the party saying “I can’t eat that” so instead, try adding foods to your plate such as veggies. Always saying no is hard, try saying yes! The positive spin will help you feel like you’re participating in the event.
  • You bite it you write it!!! It’s so easy to grab a handful of chips or a mouthful of cake, but that stuff adds up. So if you bite it you write it down. At the end of the day you’re being honest with yourself and will know exactly what you are putting in your body.
  • Hydrate! Drink water, lots of it! Especially during the hot summer months when we need more of it. Try drinking water before a meal to try and settle your hunger and you don’t overeat. Keep a water bottle with you where ever you go so that you get the 8 or more glasses a day that is recommended.
  • Go Dutch on dinner plates! Going on summer holidays is great but sometimes it causes us to be eating out more than usual. When you’re out for dinner, try splitting the meal with somebody. Restaurants typically give us enough food for 2 people on one plate. What a perfect way to cut the cost of the holiday!
  • Grab smaller plates and glasses for the RV. Because people consume an average of 92% of what they serve themselves, larger plates lead to larger food intake. A two inch difference in plate diameter-from 12 to 10 inch plates-would result in servings 22% lower in calories, on average, yet it is not drastic enough to trigger a counteracting response. If a typical dinner has 800 calories, a smaller plate would lead to a weight loss of around 18 lbs. per year for the average adult
  • When you know you’ll be flying to a destination, try ordering your meal online when booking your ticket. Then you won’t have to flip through that book of snacks and try and decide which one you want. And when you’re driving to destinations, try packing a cooler instead of having to stop and eat at fast food restaurants.

Alison Duffell, Reiki Master, is excited to announce that she is now offering Reiki at Layers Wellness.


Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and treats the body as a whole. When we release stress, negative emotions and energy blocks we can allow the body to heal on a physical and emotional level. Reiki can help cope
with stress, muscle pain, chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and many more ailments that might be plaguing you.

If you would like to experience Reiki for yourself you can book a treatment with Alison.





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.
