Pamper Yourself at Au Paradis!

When Nancy Delage and her daughter were reviewing university courses and the many options, the process made her start considering options for herself. Business and entrepreneurship has always been in her blood as her father previously owned several different businesses here in Cornwall, including a used furniture store.

IMG_1898“As my daughter was picking out her courses, I started thinking about my own background in business and what I really wanted to do as a career,” said Ms. Delage.

The answer was simple: create a space where clients are able to relax and enjoy being pampered. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Delage enrolled herself at Elegance College and Au Paradis Day Spa was born.

Although beauty is a large part of the focus at most spas, Ms. Delage has created Au Paradis Day Spa so that her clients are able to escape from the stresses of life and experience a feeling of calm. It is difficult not to immediately relax when you arrive at the Eleventh Street location – the soothing aroma and atmosphere prepare you for a mini getaway.

It is not only the space, but the services that make clients feel pampered. Au Paradis Day Spa provides professional head to toe esthetic services.

“One of the most popular trends in spas today is body treatments,” explained Ms. Delage. “We offer body exfoliation, mud wraps and a new lymph drainage treatment. Not only are these treatments relaxing, but they are great for your skin.”

Whether you go to the spa on a regular basis or only occasionally for a special treat, Ms. Delage believes in taking time to indulge yourself.

“With three sisters and four daughters, spa days are a weekly tradition for us,” said Ms. Delage with a laugh. “My girls were always giving me homemade spa certificates for my birthday and Mother’s Day. It’s good to take time out of your week to treat yourself.”

Au Paradis Day Spa does provide a somewhat different option.  In addition to specific treatment pricing, they also offer three different membership packages.  With these packages, members are entitled to reserved time slots for appointments, refreshments, access to the spas exclusive VIP room and 10% off additional services.

“The membership option at Au Paradis Day Spa is a great idea for pampering yourself or as a gift for someone special,” said Candy Pollard, Business Consultant with the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.  “Ms. Delage is also offering Mary Kay Cosmetics as well as Clayton Shagal, a his and hers skin care product line.  This is a great fit with her spa services.”
