Tell me about Rejuve Health & Wellness. When you started it and what it does?
Halisky: I started Rejuve back in 2003 in the heart of Kensington. Here at Rejuve, we offer a unique treatment for weight loss and detoxification called the Rejuve! system, also known as lymphatic drainage massage with a cellulite massage. We also have many add-on services like our FAR infrared sauna, reflexology foot massage, epsom salt scrub or bentonite clay to add to your 90-minute body wrap.
We really are your one-stop beauty shop with services like eyelash extensions, teeth whitening and dermaplaning.
In the last year, we’ve introduced our new, non-invasive face and body machine call Inmode, which has been the hype in Beverly Hills and with celebrities all around the world. This machine does everything down to Diolaze hair removal, Fractora, which is a skin resurfacing procedure for acne, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Forma, our non-surgical face lift, and lastly our total Body FX treatment, which entails our laser body contouring that uses heat to tighten, tone and eliminate fat cells. It complements all of our services here at Rejuve so well.
We’re extremely grateful for the results it has given our clientele. Our clients leave Rejuve feeling very relaxed, confident, and rejuvenated! They’re seeing fast results that give them the motivation to get to their desired goals.
Why did you get into this line of business?
Halisky: I started managing my mother’s spa in Edmonton at the age of 17 and saw all types of needs for our clientele and strived to provide the most effective treatment for each body type and giving them the best service to get them to reach their goals fast and effective.
I always loved Calgary and lucked out on getting in just before the first bomb.
The health and wellness industry has always been a huge passion of mine and I’ve been very lucky to have this opportunity all these years to help so many reach their weight loss and detox goals. It’s been extremely rewarding, I’ve met some lifelong clients that I’m very lucky to call my close friends/family.
How has business been in recent years considering the state of Calgary’s economy?
Halisky: It for sure has been a decrease in clients able to afford treating themselves like they used to. However, I keep my prices affordable and haven’t decreased my prices even with all the small business taxes that have gone up over the years. We do offer a 15 per cent discount on all our packages on the 15th of every month.
I’ve been very blessed with all my regular clientele that I have over the past 16 years to keep Rejuve still thriving during these tough times.
As a small business owner, I’m always keeping up with the trends and giving what clients that are looking for to make them look and feel their best.
What are some of the key trends you’re seeing in your industry for consumers?
Halisky: Everyone is looking for fast, effective results. I’ve been very fortunate to have teamed up with the best services to provide that to them. With my fabulously knowledgeable and passionate staff providing the best service in a clean and relaxing ambiance, it has kept Rejuve going strong.
Keeping our social media fun and educated is also key for being successful.
Most of all top-notch customer services is number one in this industry.
What’s your vision for your business?
Halisky: We’ve been growing steadily now with our new Inmode machine and also we’re in the midst of finding a bigger location, with more parking for our clientele, however, still in the heart of Kensington.
We also have newly created our Rejuve system that allows entrepreneurs to purchase the Rejuve system, which will provide them with all the knowledge to offer the infrared body wrap to their existing and new clients. We would like to see this expansion more in our future.
