As a massage therapist, mom and entrepreneur, Corina Brewer knows first-hand the benefits of self-care.
And whether it’s a relaxing massage, revitalizing facial or a pedicure that simply lets you do something special for you, Corina feels fortunate to be able to share that with clients at her La Petite Spa in Smithers.
The spa presented the perfect opportunity to marry two of Corina’s passions – massage therapy and entrepreneurship. Locals will remember Corina as the longtime owner of Le Petite Maison, a boutique specializing in giftware and home decor.
Several years ago, she embarked on a new career in massage therapy. “To have people trust me with their care, and know that you played a part in making their day a little better, that’s so humbling,” she says. “And seeing clients leave happy after their treatment – that’s such a blessing.”
After working as a massage therapist at the former Cloud 9 Spa, Corina embraced the opportunity purchase the local business. “I think I always wanted to own my own business again, and this was the perfect way to combine two things I love,” she says.
In addition to massage therapy and full spa offerings, including facials, pedicures, manicures, waxing and lash extensions, La Petite Spa offers microdermabrasion and clinical peels, and recently welcomed a Reiki practitioner.
“We’re really trying to provide the opportunity for self-care for every aspect of your life,” Corina says, crediting the spa’s amazing team. “Self-care is so important. So often we care for everyone else in our lives, but don’t take the time for ourselves, We’re going to help you take care of you.”
