Nourishment Straight from the Sea

Seaweed aficionado Diane Bernard, known locally on Vancouver Island as the “Seaweed Lady,” has now officially opened North America’s first Thalassotherapy (sea therapy) Training Centre in North America to educate and train health and wellness practitioners on the benefits of seaweed. Located in Sooke, 40 minutes outside of Victoria, B.C. where the wild, organic seaweeds are hand-harvested, the sustainable centre is also the site of production and manufacturing for Outer Coast Seaweeds skin care line, Seaflora. The locally made product line offers a wide variety of serums and scrubs, with their newest products for Spring 2012, Sea Silk Cleanser, Sea Recovery Face Gel and Derma-Sea Face
