  2. 2. THE CHAKRA SPA FOUNDER: LISA JULIEN BIOGRAPHY With over a decade of experience in the beauty industry, Lisa Julien – the owner of The Chakra Spa - has learned the importance of taking time for pampering and reflection. Originally planning a career in esthetics and natural beauty, Lisa attended school and graduated with honours. Despite her success, she discovered that many of Toronto’s European-influenced spas were reluctant to hire a woman of colour. Instead of internalizing the negativity, Lisa found a way to rise above. Lisa’s personal life has also challenged her to find inner strength. The mother of four has survived an abusive relationship and a divorce in her journey to self-acceptance. Through meditation and commitment, Lisa was empowered to rebuild herself and chart a new path. With the support of her family and mentor - Katy Hoffman - The Chakra Spa was born. The Chakra Spa is like a fifth child to Lisa, as she re-invested everything she earned back into the spa. The warm, welcoming space reflects Lisa’s own warmth, openness and creativity. Lisa created the spa as a retreat from the glossy, impersonal perfection of some other spas; perfection being an ideal that did not exist. From the curved walls to the soothing music; from the peaceful decor to the earthy atmosphere, each detail is designed to help women of all cultures, ages and experiences feel nurtured, accepted and at peace with themselves. Catering to average women and celebrities alike, The Chakra Spa prides itself on the high level of comfort and privacy. The peaceful, unpretentious vibe allows guests to let go and be themselves. All clients enjoy the unparalleled service and personalized attention. As Lisa has blossomed into a strong, confident woman, her spa has blossomed into a successful, upscale business. The spa has been featured in a major spa book, Positive Living, Echo, One Mind Channel and countless beauty and fashion magazines. Through indulgent treatments that nurture the mind, body and soul, the spa helps women embrace their inner beauty and enhance their outer beauty while letting go of guilt and stress. Lisa and her staff are renowned for their knowledge of the body and holistic therapies, making The Chakra Spa one of Toronto’s top-rated spas.
