Throughout the holiday season and into the New Year, many people allow themselves the luxury of relaxing and treating themselves. One such way is through massage and other related spa treatments.
Massage has long been proven to be good not only for the body, but the mind as well. Daryn Chernick, president and owner of Live Right Massage & Facial Spa says that too often, people wait too long before seeking massage treatment.
“Normally when you go to a spa, clients just book in for a single appointment,” said Daryn. “They don’t end up feeling healed, because they wait until they hurt, which is too late. The reason that employers give benefits to their workers is to allow them to get regular maintenance and to prevent them from getting sore or injured. This allows them to feel better, have more work days and have more enjoyment out of life. With our membership program, we help you get more massages out of the same amount of benefits in one year so you feel your best.”
Live Right offers a membership package unlike any other spa in Winnipeg, allowing customers to use their pre-paid services towards any spa treatment of their choosing. Focusing on body and skin care, the spa offers massage, facials, waxing, sugaring, steam and other some special body treatments.
Many of Daryn’s clients have been booking in for the holidays as a way of using up their benefits. Many work places, and most colleges and universities in Manitoba, include massages in their benefits packages, but they don’t roll over from year to year.
Catered to your needs and schedule
Born and raised in Winnipeg, not far from Live Right’s Taylor Avenue location, Daryn had used the benefits of massage for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that he saw the potential to make his own business in the industry. After living and going to school at DeVry in Calgary for a while, Daryn returned to Winnipeg. He worked with his family with Westco for a number of years, before seeking a career where he could help people and contribute to their overall wellness. He opened Live Right in November of 2014.
“I love it here. I love the changes in the seasons, I love the people, I love the small town in a big town mentality.”
Live Right came to be with help from the Manitoba START program and the Manitoba small business loan program. Live Right also takes on apprentices through Apprenticeship Manitoba.
Live Right was the first spa of its kind in Winnipeg to utilize the membership program, where people can sign up and use their membership fee towards any number of specialized treatments.
“We give a loyalty discount through the membership, and allow our customers to contribute for as long as they want without having to worry about coming in every month. Your monthly pre-paids do not expire, so you can save up a few and have a really great spa day if you wish.”
“It’s very flexible, and we’ve made it as easy as possible for people to come to a place where they’re seeing the same therapist that clearly understands their needs, and can put them on a treatment plan. That helps them to feel better with whatever issue they have. They also remind them to come more regularly so that they don’t only come after they’re already feeling bad, it keeps them feeling good and productive.”
