Our Ohspa Team
Meren, our spa manager, has been a key part of the Ohspa team since 2017. Throughout her years with us, first as front desk attendant, then supervisor and now manager, she has a lighthearted sense of humour that keeps the spa atmosphere positive and upbeat. She also brings years of product, team and operational knowledge to the spa. On her days off, she enjoys decorating the interior of her beautifully picturesque home and hosting friends and family who regularly come to visit the Valley.
Megan, our spa supervisor, also provides treatments for her clients (whom she calls her VIPs) on select days of the week which are almost always fully booked well in advance! She is originally from Port Hardy and attended school at Vancouver Island University. A resident of the Comox Valley for the last six years, she enjoys camping and gardening. Whisk and Valentine are her beloved cats, and to get even more cat time, she volunteers at Kitty Cat Pals every week! Megan also is passionate about ocean conservation and works part-time with the Marine Education Research Society.

Registered Massage Therapist
Sara, now in her 30’s, was born and raised in the Comox Valley. She received her diploma from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in August 2018. All 20 months of study and 550 hours of training were fueled by her love of learning about the human body. While she really likes to “fix” muscle related problems, she has treated many conditions and people, including addicts, geriatrics, those with mental disabilities and those in palliative care. She is trained in Swedish massage, petrissage, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, cranial sacral therapy, joint mobilizations, trigger point release and many more techniques. Spending time with fiancé, family, friends and her two French bulldogs is what she loves to do in her free time.
