The Altitude Laser Spa’s annual Spa-tacular Spring Event was the five-year anniversary of the event.

The Altitude Laser Spa’s annual Spa-tacular Spring Event, held at the Wolf Creek Golf Resort on Saturday, May 2, was the five-year anniversary of the event and for the spa team that meant amping up the extravagance even more.

“It’s a year of giving back,” said spa owner Kim Green. “That’s why we brought in the health and wellness speakers.”

In a different take from last year, the event only featured two speakers for the majority of the day: Eric Stephenson and Debra K.

‘They travel internationally and speak on anything that has to do with wellness,” said Green.

Green says K, who spoke during the afternoon session, was there to teach the woman overall wellbeing, manifesting their own journey and five food swaps that could be made to defeat bloating.

Stephenson talked about drama reduction to help manage stress levels through self-care, massage and aromatherapy.

“Essential oils were used in ancient medicine and it’s unique because it’s used for both emotional and physical needs,” said Green.

She added the whole event is always about teaching woman new ways to improve their own wellbeing. “I want women to be inspired to manage their own journey with their health at heart.”

Also in the spirit of giving back, the proceeds of the raffle tickets and $5 from every Body Bliss sale made during the event will be donated to the Ponoka Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury. More than $500 was raised for the donation.
