AHARON TROTTIER, Owner, Esthetics, Massage Practitioner (MP), Certified Master Pedicurist (CMP)

Aharon is the proud owner of Bodé Spa. Having previously been a teacher, Aharon understands Bode's emphasis on pairing education with quality service. He started his career at Bode behind the desk, and gradually developed his skills a therapist. He expanded his practice by taking the CMP certificate with the North American School of Podology, and by taking advanced skin care courses with the International Dermal Institute.

"As a business owner, I want people to describe Bode as educational, therapeutic and comfortable. As a therapist, the focus of my work is on the health and wellness of my clients. I want them to feel like they're ready to take on the rest of their week ahead."

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".
