My name is Jan Kudrna. I have been an L Spa Registered Massage Therapist for 5 1/2 years now.
I have almost 19 years of experience in muscular therapy. I started studying physiotherapy at the University in Pilsen, Czech Republic, in 2002. This program consisted of theoretical knowledge of physiotherapy and massages including practical hours in hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, and spas. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in 2005. My working career started as a physiotherapist in the clinic specialized in post-cancer treatments for 2 years. This clinic taught me about rehabilitation programs for clients with cancer and also about manual and machine lymphatic drainage.
My Canadian RMT journey began October 2008, specializing in therapeutic massages, deep tissue ,Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Reiki programs. Although I am not able to practice as a physiotherapist in Canada, my knowledge benefits my clients during each massage session.
My L Spa career started October 2015 and it has been a phenomenal experience to work for a spa, where high standard of quality is of utmost importance. Since joining the L Spa Team I have added Contemporary Cupping and Advance Cupping programs to my list of specialties & modalities.
Feel free to schedule your next massage session with me, and allow me to show you how my wealth of knowledge & experience sets me apart from the rest.

I have always had a love for beauty which has led me to pursue my dream career in Esthetics. In 2018 I moved to Edmonton to enter the Advanced Esthetics Program with Eveline Charles Academy. There I had the amazing opportunity to travel to New York City for the International Beauty Show where I participated in various workshops to learn from advanced influencers across the US. It is a time I will never forget!
After receiving my certification, I returned to Grande Prairie and started my career at The L Spa & Wellness Centre. I am very fortunate to be able to provide a multitude of services to clients, from single services to all-day packages. My favourite service to perform is facials as I love helping my clients achieve their dream skin goals. Seeing their faces light up when we finish the service is the best feeling. I also love working with brows, including brow waxing and tinting. There is just something outstanding about great looking brows! My clients will always be my first priority, to ensure the service is the best of the best, and they leave the spa feeling relaxed, heard and appreciated. I take pride with my work and will always go above and beyond.
I was born and raised in Grande Prairie and it’s great to see familiar faces at the spa and I love getting to know new people. I’m outgoing and chatty and truly enjoy this career I have chosen. I believe continuing education is important and I try to seek out any learning opportunities I can to increase my knowledge with new service styles and trends in the industry as they become available. What are you waiting for, book with me today!

My name is Nicole Klassen, I have been at the L Spa since December 2019. I grew up near Wanham Alberta on an acreage with my two parents, brother and sister. I moved to Edmonton for the summer of 2019 to study Esthetics there, and now am living in Grande Prairie where I will be marrying my fiancé Daniel this summer!
One thing about me is that I love my crafts and will often be found knitting, or working on an embroidery project in my spare time. I truly have a passion for helping people which led to my career in Esthetics. I love being able to make people feel good both mentally and physically, whether that’s helping someone relax during a pedicure while transforming their feet, or fall asleep during a luxurious facial and waking up to beautiful skin.
My favourite services to provide are pedicures, facials and brow waxing. I love meeting new people and hope to see you in the future.

Hi there I’m Tiffany a spa practitioner at The L Spa and Wellness Centre. I graduated from Alberta Collage of Massage Therapy in 2018 and I’ve been with the L Spa since the beginning of my career.
The L Spa has helped me grow as a therapist in my short time working here and they’ve also helped me add some more tools to my belt. I specialize in relaxation massages but have also learned how to preform detox and body services as well as Tranquility Pro Sleep rituals. These therapies are the perfect fit for my love for anything being warm, cozy and comfortable.
My love for massage started in my younger teen years from massaging my mom’s feet after a hard day at work to a good old plantar fasciitis flare up. As I have grown and had kids of my own I’ve learned to appreciate what it’s like to get a break from life and escape to enjoy some peace and quiet every once in a while.
I hope that everyone I treat leaves relaxed, warm and cozy with the feeling they got the break they deserve!

I believe massage is an effective way of rehabilitation, healing and relaxation. I like mixing techniques to tailor to each individual to help achieve your health and wellness goals.
