ORESTA organic skin care is proud to be collaborating with The Urban Element to host a fundraiser in support of The Royal’s Early Intervention Program. It will be an incredible evening of honest conversation and expert advice about How To Get Into Your Teenagers Head,
As mothers, Laryssa, Carley and I know only too well how challenging it can be to raise a teenage girl and boy. We also understand the need for education and awareness surrounding our teen’s mental health and well being.
Please invite a girlfriend or two and (or three) and buy your tickets for an evening to learn strategies and gain resources on how to understand and support your teen….and support The Royal. There will be nibbles and a cash bar. Following the speakers, there will be a Q + A.
Sandra Nason is a Registered Psychotherapist specializing in couple and relationship therapy. She has been in private practice since 2000.
Kasie Coulombe is the Program Coordinator for The Royal’s Early Intervention Program.
The Royal’s Early Intervention Program is a school-based life skills program for at risk youth aged 12 and older in collaboration with local school boards. The program offers services to students with concerns related to early onset mental health (ie., depression or anxiety) and/or substance use issues, as well as those concerned about their family or friend’s substance use.
This evening is a collaboration between ORESTA organic skin care and The Urban Element. Carly Schelck, owner of Urban Element introduced Laryssa and Oresta to The Royal. Inspired with all of the wonderful ways that The Royal supports our community, as mothers, we recognize the need for education and awareness surrounding our child’s mental health and well being. Through this event, we are proud to support The Royal’s Early Intervention Program.
Tickets are $60. Tax receipts issued. All proceeds to The Royal’s Early Intervention Program

Oresta and Laryssa have studied Gua Sha with world renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor, Herbalist and Acupuncturist Dr. Ping Zhang. Having completed the certification in Gua Sha, we have been offering Gua Sha in our facial treatments for over one year. Many of you have experienced the incredible lifting, firming, wrinkle-smoothing and tension-releasing results of Gua Sha. To those who have never experienced Gua Sha, prepare to be amazed.
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the press-stroking of a small jade tool to gently massage and stimulate various energy points on the face, forehead, jaw and neck. It increases blood flow, improves lymphatic drainage, releases tension and toxins, reduces puffiness and inflammation, breaks up scar tissue and promotes firm, healthy, glowing skin.
We are excited to offer a workshop where we will teach you a simple yet effective Gua Sha facial rejuvenation massage with your very own jade tool that can be incorporated into your daily home skin care regime.
$100 (includes a high quality jade gua sha tool)

The Polar Vortex has brought harsh temperatures and chilling winds that are wreaking havoc on our skin. Central heating and radiators add to the moisture zapping resulting in dry, red, chapped skin. Our rule of thumb is that when you turn on your furnace, it’s time to switch up your skin care routine to hydrate, heal and protect your winter skin.View full article →
