I would like to share some thoughts with all of you about my wonderful friend, esthetician and confidante, JOANNA.
Joanna and I have know each other for 12 years. Right from my very first appointment, I felt that I had really been missing out on something truly wonderful all of my life up until then.
When you are with Joanna it is like no other experience one can describe.
Soothing colors, “angels” and calm music are just the beginning…
Joanna’s expertise, truly kind and caring manner & bright inquiring mind which always keeps her “up to date” in her field are just a few her admirable qualities.
The fact that Joanna’s “Spa” is always comfortable, immaculately clean, and beautiful is just a beautiful bonus.
I have moved to Vancouver since my first times with Joanna and now drive from West Kitsilano to be with Joanna.
My times in El Spa are among my most enjoyable during the month. I always tell my sons to nourish their “body, mind& soul”. When I leave Joanna’s I always feel I have done all of this. And now for a wonderful evening with Joanna…

"My name is Cornelia, I am 38 years old and I am family physician working up North.
My face was a mess when my friend decided that I must see her cosmetician. This is how I met Joanna about 4 years back. You could say I was desperate. My face was red, itchy, oily and with lots of white heads. It was very sensitive to weather, make up, hormonal changes. I have tried multiple brands from Loreal to Lancome and Arbonne .
My face seemed to get worse and worse. I was also under a lot of stress due to my residency and the long hours we had to put in studying and work in order to become a good doctor.
I must admit I was a bit reluctant to go and see a cosmetician. I did not think she could do much for my face. When we had our first appointment Joanna seemed a bit concerned about my face condition. She spent quite some time trying to figure out the best combination “to fix” my face. I really appreciated her honesty when she gave me her advice and recommended the creams. That made me using them every day as indicated. It took about one month until my face had started to look better. After 2-3 months of treatment my face was not red anymore, not irritated and I could use make up again.
When I went back to Joanna she was extremely happy with the results and I was able to have my first facial massage.
As a client and physician I recommend Joanna without any reservations. Her professionalism, knowledge and honesty really made a difference in my life. I have learned so much from her and now finally I know how to take care of my face."

"I was looking for a good esthetician/ Spa when my friend recommended Joanna to me. That was approximately 7-8 years ago and I have no intention to search for other spa or different esthetician.
Why not? I simply don’t believe that I could receive the same or similar service anywhere else.
I’m pampered like “a Queen” every time I use Joanna’s services.
- YOU are in a beautiful baroque style spa room with a relaxing music in the background.
- YOU lie down on a pre-heated bed and get covered with a nice soft and warm blankets.
- YOU close your eyes and while listening to a beautiful relaxing music; YOUR Spa paradise experience begins….and YOU wish to have a power to stop the time….
I cannot say anything but the best about Joanna. She is very professional, skilled and has beautiful soul!
She is up to date with all her techniques and products on the market. She also uses organic based products.
My job required me to move about 500 km away from Vancouver. However I always find time to have my special facial and reflexology done at Joanna’s spa each and every time I visit Vancouver or just pass through."
