I'm working in Alma from March 2012.
2011 i was working yonge/lawrence and one day i was doing massage and i felt bit tired and after that i was doing Pedicure when i opened  (OPI) polish bottle i felt nausea than after i found out i'm Pregnant. I had no choice i was still working till 8 Months that time i was thinking it's not good for me and my baby to work in a Toxic environment. During my mat leave i was looking for Natural Place in Toronto than came up Alma Natural Spa. I came to Alma for interview when i opened the door was unbelievable No Fumes,i smelled natural Oils. Katie and Laurie did my interview and i got this opportunity to work in Alma. I was very lucky to found this place and working in a Natural and Non-Toxic environment. After 5years Katie decided to sell and she offered us (Me and My Husband) October 2016.
From 1st November 2016 i owened this place ALMA.

Katie, Founder

Katy is in manufacturing & operations in the pharmaceutical & beauty industries. She created Alma in 2011 after relocating here from the States. Her passion is challenging people to consider to new ideas & encouraging them to explore what speaks to them to bring happiness, health, abundance into every aspect of their lives.

She was passionate about creating a space where: (1) people don’t have to worry about whether or not the products being used or breathed are safe (2) quality services & perfect hygiene are almost taken for granted since they’re the core of what we do (3) busy people can get the R&R they need without spending hours at the spa (4) you can have a great conversation or relax on your own (5)it is unpretentious and people feel comfortable (6) we have a positive impact on everyone who walks in the door (7) it feels more like a community of awesome people than a stuffy spa (8)people want to keep coming back!
