how it started

Owners Image

Spa Botanica is the dream child of Harman Dhaliwal and Gabrielle Zoppa. The partners met in 2012 working as Estheticians together at a local spa. Harman had studied Esthetics in Ludhiana, India where she went on to open her own thriving spa for close to 5 years. She immigrated to Canada with her daughter as a single mother, where she worked hard to adapt to her new life. She had always hoped to open her own business again in Canada, as she had come here with much business knowledge and a strong skillset in traditional Ayurvedic skincare recipes. Gabrielle had studied Esthetics in BC and worked for 7 years at a picturesque resort spa on Vancouver Island where she honed her skills in facials and bodywork. She moved back to Winnipeg in 2010, also coming with a strong desire to open her own business. When the 2 met, they formed an instant bond, sharing their hopes and dreams in the spa industry. Both had a vision to create a holistic, plant based spa focusing on healing clients from the inside out.
