I grew up in small town Saskatchewan and married a local farm boy. Together we raised eight children and farmed for 20 plus years. I see myself as down to earth, spiritual, and family focused. My interests and hobbies include; hiking, running, yoga, cross country skiing, gardening, reading and enjoying the great outdoors with family and friends.

I am very excited to share all the services at Northern Lights Vintage Spa and believe you will have a very enjoyable experience where your discomforts, pain and stress just melt away.

Massage, one of the best things you can do for your mind, body and spirit!

Shelley O'Hare - Co-owner/Massage Practitioner

My interest in helping and caring for others has led to my career in massage. I enjoy providing a variety of treatments to our clients who are looking for relaxation, and to aid in the relief of sore muscles. It is my belief that the modalities being presented offer many benefits and advantages in aiding the body, mind and soul to heal.

As a certified massage practitioner, I incorporate a variety of gentle and deep techniques into the treatments to achieve the best possible results. I enjoy the clients we have and meeting new clients. I work with each client to determine which techniques or modalities will work best for their situation. I believe that everyone can benefit from massage for various reasons; stress relief, relaxation, healing and in the prevention of injury.

I moved to Maple Creek in 2002 and since have joined forces with Kathy of Northern Lights Vintage Spa.

Deanna Wood - Hair Stylist

Growing up in the Peace River Valley I was always surrounded by its natural beauty, that validated for me that ones beauty does come from within.

My passion to be a stylist even as a child has lead me in many directions. From student to salon owner/color technician, followed by instructing future stylists. Within my 20+ years in the industry each time I witness a person's confidence grow from "the look good-feel good" motto I get inspired.
Having my clients embrace attentive pampering, complete relaxation experience and the fulfillment of having it all about "them" while we are together captivating their inner beauty is what its all about.

I enjoy the many relationships that I have developed and I am enthusiastic about making many more in being a stylist at Northern Lights Vintage Spa.

For male and female cuts, organic hair coloring, organic hair perms, beard trimming, etc. call the spa to book with Deanna at 306.661.7373.
