Kneaded Relief Grand Opening
On October 30, Kneaded Relief massage therapy clinic had its grand opening, in collaboration with Northern Lights Realty broker owner Wendy Unrau.
Kneaded Relief opened on February 1 this year, and due to COVID-19, had to shut down on March 20. On June 18, the clinic reopened. The grand opening was held in collaboration with Northern Lights Realty as Unrau took over the business on October 1. Unrau had been an associate broker at Northern Lights Realty since August 25, and wanted to make the community aware that the business had changed hands.
The grand opening consisted of numerous giveaways as well as some desserts and coffee. Kneaded Relief held draws throughout the day on Friday and two draws on Thursday. Giveaways included massages, products sold in the shop, face and scalp treatments, and more.
Kneaded Relief owner Brooke Wasylishen has been a massage therapist for 15 years after taking a massage therapy course through Lakeland College. She looks forward to serving Vermilion’s community and hopes to hire more therapists to accommodate for night massages. Wasylishen hopes that one day she can be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays.
“November and December are the busiest times for massage therapy,” Wasylishen commented.
Kneaded Relief consists of two treatment rooms and an infrared sauna, which helps detoxify and aids in weight loss. The sauna also helps in warming up muscles so they are easier to treat in massage.
Along with giveaways from Kneaded Relief, Northern Lights Realty also held some giveaways including some gift cards from local businesses, an essential oils diffuser, and furniture refurbished by SHESHOP.
