DANIEL FRANCOEUR, Esthetics, Massage Practitioner (MP), Educator, Pioneer

Daniel Francoeur is a licensed esthetician and orthotherapist for over 18 years. He fell in love with the spa industry in 1999 when he started 'Little House Spa' in Cumberland, ON. It was a destination spa; one where women and men could get away; where men felt comfortable to equally partake in a taste of spa life. From these experiences, Daniel realized that the needs of men were not being met in the industry outside of 'Little House Spa'.

In 2004, Daniel moved out of the countryside and recreated Bodé Spa for Men in Ottawa. What has fuelled the business model behind Bodé is Daniel's passion for education.

"I want to help others create a welcoming, relaxed space for men, and to be able to back it up with educated services and effective products that work".

HOLLY FRANCOEUR, Esthetics, Massage Practitioner (MP), Certified Master Pedicurist (CMP)

Bodé has been a part of Holly's life since she was young. Understanding the mission behind Bodé, paired with her interest in helping others, she joined the team in 2016. Holly added the CMP certificate with the North American School of Podology to her skill set. She looks forward to adding aromatherapy to her massage practice in the near future.

“I have always worked in hospitality services, but I wanted something more care-oriented. At Bodé, I have the ability to help people and to educate them.”

MATT MIWA, Grooming, Massage Practitioner (MP)

Matt joined the Bode team in 2017, and is enjoying the experience. He is simultaneously enjoying a career as an actor, a writer and is also a gymnastics coach.

“I love stories; listening to them and creating them. I get to meet so many different people at Bode, and it's great to be able to help them feel better.”
