On March 1, 2015, Laura Oleksow and Jessica Riley became the proud new owners of Spa 901 in Fernie, B.C. 

This duo both started working at Spa 901 in 2013, Oleksow as the director and Riley as an esthetician.They grew professionally with the spa and are thrilled about the opportunity to take it over as owners.

Spa 901 encourages their guests to come for a treatment and stay to enjoy the ambience for as long as they wish.

Among their services are body treatments, scrubs, massages and facials. To relax, a guest can enjoy the hot tub, infrared sauna and relaxation rooms.The spa also does esthetic services like waxing, manicures and pedicures.

In April, Spa 901 is introducing the Dermalogica brand. They will offer face-mapping, which is a skin consultation that gives a full analysis of a guest’s skin.

“We can actually change the appearance of the skin as opposed to just put on products," said Oleksow. "We want to dig down deep and see what's going on.”
