Angela Thomas, Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT), Certified Respiratory Educator (CRE), Buteyko Educator (BE)
After graduating in Calgary as a Registered Respiratory Therapist, over 30 years ago, Angela began working in the healthcare field, where she continues to do so today. Her career started at the Toronto General Hospital where she stayed for 10 years as staff and supervisor until her longing to be in Miramichi could not be ignored. She moved back home and was employed at the Miramichi Hospital for a total of 22 years: she worked as a Certified Respiratory Educator in the Asthma/COPD clinic for 18 years. During that time she began and operated her own business, Breatheasy Services Ltd.
Being an entrepreneur at heart, she wanted a change. Over the years, (perhaps as she saw her own self aging) she became increasingly drawn to the anti-aging industry. Not getting any younger, she decided that now is the time! She is excited to announce that finally, we will not have to travel out of town to achieve our anti-aging goals and desires. The equipment we are offering in the new Divine MediSpa, uses state of the art techniques with anti-aging protocols and skin care products.
We are the third clinic in all of Canada to own the Divine Pro machine, which offers non-surgical facial contouring by volumizing, lifting and resurfacing the skin. The OxyGeneo - is a 3 in one facial (exfoliates, infuses and oxygenates), the same treatment Kim Kardashian, the bachelor show and other celebrities use. The eDermaStamp – has medical grade cone shaped needles (the gold standard of micro-needling and collagen induction therapy), Maximus - is used for non-invasive fat removal and skin tightening and Freezpen – is the worlds best non-invasive treatment for removing benign skin lesions. We all want to take care of our skin and age gracefully why not come by our Spa and find out how we can help you look and feel “THE VERY BEST”
Our professional staff include Physician, RN’s, Esthethicians, and Angela, who is a Registered Respiratory Therapist, will also be doing Asthma/COPD and Buteyko Education. At present, Angela is the only qualified person in the Maritimes with certification to teach Buteyko Breathing Techniques.
We hope to see you soon for a consultation to help you achieve your goals and objectives for your health and beauty.
