article imageReview: Kalena's Spa hosts special SeaFlora event Special

Toronto - It's no secret that I love Kalena's Spa at 458 Queens Quay West in Toronto so when a special Sea Flora event took place on Saturday I made sure that I got a spot!
From 10 am. to 4 pm. Kalena's Spa owner Elena Kaluzhnaya and Esthetician PeiPei Elliot gave complimentary mini Sea Flora detoxification facials. SeaFlora's Raman Sekhon explained the benefits of using a product with organic seaweed for new users and for those of us who are devotees what's new.
Four years ago when Elena told me about SeaFlora I was skeptical. I learned how all of the minerals in the human body are also in seaweed. I listened to all the benefits of consuming seaweed and it honestly sounded too good to be true. Also there was the fact that seaweed was not something I wanted slimed on my body but I trusted her and went in with an open mind.
I had eczema at the time on my arms that had been a problem for years without any relief. Two months later my arms were soft and clear of any skin problems.
When my husband had a heart attack and was in a long coma his shoulders became frozen. He had tried cortisone treatments but they only worked for a few weeks at a time. I asked Elena about trying SeaFlora and she picked out the products that she thought would help. Within two weeks he had full movement of his shoulders and has remained mobile since.
When I shattered my ankle it was only natural that I would turn to SeaFlora as a supplement to physical rehab. I was walking much quicker without a limp than was expected. (I also exercised a lot during this time)

SeaFlora is out of Vancouver and founded by Diane Bernard. Seaweed has been a part of Bernard's life from the beginning. Her family has used seaweed in their lives for over a century. Bernard didn't use it for skincare though, she was harvesting organic seaweed for restaurants. That all changed when she saw a spa offering seaweed wraps. Long story short, she sought experts out and started making SeaFlora products using hand-harvested organic seaweed. SeaFlora has a massive sustainable ocean garden where they make sure that their ingredients are the best and safest for their clients.
Sekhon explained that the line is always improving as the company finds better methods of using seaweed. She also said that while the company doesn't make medical claims she often hears stories like my family's.
The newest line of SeaFlora products is their Anti-Aging products. The products are a natural choice as seaweed provides the minerals we lose as we age back into our bodies.
This is one product line that I swear by. It's found at select spas like Kalena's.
