Lynda-Ann La Barge
When you ask Jessica about Eminence Organics she lights up the room. She has worked with the famous Hungarian Line for over 10 years and loves it more now than the day she started playing around with the products.
Jessica discovered her passion for the science of skin, specifically facials, when she attended the Blanche MacDonald Center for Skin Therapy In Vancouver BC. Since then, Jessica has chosen to work exclusively with Eminence products which has allowed her to provide outstanding customized treatments, each one addressing her clients’ specific needs. Jessica’s passion is to provide an environment where her clients can feel at ease and good about themselves and their skin.
“We are more aware now than ever before of what we put in our bodies, Eminence is like a raw food diet for your skin!”

Zoe Luc, RMT
Zoe always knew she wanted to be in the field of helping and connecting with people. She became a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) with the primary goal to help people and strives to become a better therapist everyday. She graduated from the College of Massage Therapy and Hydrotherapy (CCMH) and is in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). Through applying different techniques and knowledge of anatomy and physiology, she has treated various musculoskeletal conditions (general tension, strains/sprains, whiplash just to name a few) and supported some patients in their rehab from neuropathy. She has trained with Cindy McNeely through taking a Trimesters course and gained experience treating perinatal mothers and high risk pregnancies at Sunnybrook Hospital.
Her approach to treatment is dynamic and aims to balance relaxation and mechanical effectiveness to optimize your mental and physical health. Her treatment plan for each patient and session is different despite treating a similar concern. She is able to treat in different degrees of pressure, so whether you prefer light, moderate, or deep pressure, she will adapt to your body’s needs and goals you wish to achieve. Some of the techniques that you may experience in her treatment include: Swedish massage, fascia release, trigger points release, joint mobilization, proprioception techniques, and stretching. She generally likes to incorporate heat in the treatment, but will respect your choice to exclude it from your treatment if you warm up easily.
Outside of massage, Zoe enjoys keeping herself busy and healthy by doing yoga, taking walks, and exploring new places (near and far!). As healthy as she strives to be, she is a big foodie and enjoys talking about food as much as eating it!
