Tinika Coleman, RMT

Tinika is a graduate from Centennial College. Since high school, she always knew she wanted to be in a profession in the health care field. When choosing between becoming a nurse or massage therapist, she found that pursuing Massage Therapy was her true passion.

During treatment Tinika incorporates Swedish techniques, deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, frictioning, PNF stretching, and joint mobilizations. 

In 2016 she took continuing education courses to learn about the use and benefits of cupping therapy for overall health and wellness and the effects it has on the lymphatic system, how it detoxifies the body and the fascial restrictions. Cupping therapy is a very beneficial and different treatment from regular massage in that it uses decompressive methods with lifting and pulling the structures to create space rather than compressing the tissue. 

She has also been educated on the use and benefits of reflexology massage. During treatment she always ensures that she works within the comfort levels of her clients and checks in with the pressure she's applying. Seeing the results and how much she can help her clients throughout their everyday body stresses while helping them to achieve their goals is greatly rewarding to her. She likes to make recommendations on how to incorporate home care into their every day lifestyles.

 Q.Why should I wax instead of shave?
There are many positive benefits to waxing! When hair is waxed, it grows back slower and softer which eliminates the coarser stubble that shaving leaves. Shaving commonly results in ingrown hairs, bumps and other skin irritation whereas waxing leaves the skin feeling smooth. After you've been waxed, it is important to continue post-wax care at home to maximize the benefits of your wax. 

Q.How much does waxing hurt?
Depending on the area that is being waxed, experience with waxing and the level of pain tolerance a client has, it can be pain free or a little uncomfortable in sensitive areas! If it's your first time waxing an area after years of shaving, the hairs will be coarser and much more uncomfortable to wax. The more frequently you wax, the easier it gets because over time the hair will grow back thinner and sparser. We always try to talk with clients during the wax to keep their minds busy! 
Q.How often do I need to get waxed?
Typically you will need to get waxed every 4-6 weeks depending on hair growth which varies between each individual. You want there to be enough hair to be picked up from the wax but you don't want it to be too long that it's painful. 
Q.What is a Brazilian wax?
A.For women, a Brazilian wax is a style of waxing in which all of the pubic hair is removed from the vagina, including the labia and the anus. Your esthetician will help guide you during the appointment and will require you to work with them by positioning yourself in certain ways so they can wax the hairs with ease. It is a sensitive area to wax so we want to ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible! It is important to note that a Brazilian wax can also be done on males but unfortunately we do not offer this service for men. 
Q.How long does it take to get a Brazilian wax?
Depending on the experience of the client, a Brazillian wax will take around 20-30 minutes to complete. Normally the first appointment takes the longest.
Q.What prep should I do before getting a Brazilian wax?
A.It is important to let the hairs grow to be about 1/4 of an inch before your wax to ensure a faster and more comfortable procedure with cleaner and smoother results. If you have time prior to your appointment, please shower so that the hairs are easily extracted by the wax. 
Q.Brazilian wax procedure & what should you expect?
A.After cleaning the area to be waxed, we cover the area with powder to prevent the wax from sticking to the skin. We use hard, stripless wax for the hair removal, and we apply a special calming lotion/oil afterwards to reduce redness, as well as to soothe the skin.

Expect a little skin irritation. If you get waxed regularly, your skin will become accustomed and you should not experience irritation. If you only do it once or twice a year expect to go through this each time. It is normal to get tiny whiteheads after your first or second time of being waxed. Just lightly exfoliate with scrub to avoid pore blockage around 24 hours after and use either soothing lotion for a couple days. 

Q.What type of wax should be used?
A.For a Brazilian wax we use a hard (stripless) wax which is better for more sensitive areas and is overall less painful. For all other parts of the body we use a strip wax but a hard wax can be optional. 
You should not be waxed if...
A.Before you begin the treatment, please let your esthetician know if you:
  • Are diabetic
  • Bruise easily
  • Have varicose veins
  • Are sunburned
  • Have a thyroid condition
  • Are menstruating
  • Are using products/medications that are contraindicated for waxing: Accutane, Retine-A, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, Tazorac Avage, Differin, Strivectin, Renova, Proactive, Avita, benzoyl peroxide & salicylic acid. These are only some of the products we are aware of that may cause a problem and new ones can come along daily. Your skin is important to you and us – so please check with your doctor if you have any doubt.
