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!

Have you ever wanted to start an exercise program and didn’t know where to start? Overwhelmed by all the studies and information thrown at you? Not comfortable in a gym setting? Or maybe you’ve started to plateau with your current routine? We have a solution that we know you’ll love!!! We welcome Keira Barbar to the team at Layers Wellness!!! Keira has her Bachelor of Physical Education and Recreation degree from the University of Alberta with a concentration in active living, health and wellbeing. She has been working as a personal trainer for over 3 years.

Keira will be offering personal training and meal planning. Being completely mobile, she will be able to set up programs for you to do right in the comfort of your own home! Call today to set up a free consultation with Keira.



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!

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!!

Warm regards,

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.
