Kara Massage Therapist

Kara Biendarra

Kara is a 2200 hour graduate from M H Vicars School of Massage.


She offers a warm and welcoming environment, making sure you are heard. She listens to the body to make every treatment tailored to her client’s needs every time they are on her table.


Kara offers therapeutic and relaxation massage but believes a balance between the two approaches often result in the most effective massage session. While deep is her preference, patient relaxation
and comfort are still the ideal goal.

Adrienne Laser and electrolysis

Adrienne Myers

Adrienne was born on Canada’s west coast, but has spent the majority of her life right here in St. Albert.

In 2008 Adrienne completed her Bachelor of Science at the University of Alberta majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in Sociology. In 2014 she achieved her Laser Technician certification from the Cosmetic Laser Institute and has been at Off the Hook Laser and Spa ever since.

She hated turning clients away when they weren’t candidates for laser hair removal, so in 2017 she was bound and determined to learn the art of electrolysis. Her passion is hair removal and her work days are usually spent using one of our top laser or electrolysis machines. She strives to design the best treatment approach for each individual client, sometimes using a combination of both techniques to achieve the best results.

Adrienne is also an Oilers fan and avid skater, teaching Power Skating and playing hockey. She also loves traveling, having explored South America, Europe and Asia.

Dallas esthetics

Dallas Fleming

Hi, I am Dallas! I graduated from the Alberta Academy of Aesthetics in 2012 and am trained in a vast range of esthetic treatments. Knowing that the industry is constantly changing; continually advancing my education and training is especially important to me. 

I chose this industry because I love meeting people and helping them feel like their best self. I find my years of hands-on experience gives me the ability to help all my clients feel comfortable and taken care of no matter what the service may be.  

I take a lot of pride in what I do so whether you are a looking to update your skin care routine, clean up those beautiful eyebrows, pamper your hardworking feet or simply just to relax; my knowledge and meticulous eye for detail will ensure you receive a top notch experience every time.

Lee esthetician

Lee Lam

 Lee has been an esthetician for 25 years. You may recognize her as the former owner of Just For You Esthetics which was a gem in St. Albert for many years. Sadly the business was lost in the fire at the Citidel.

Lee is affectionately known as the "Brazilian Queen" by many in the city. She is one of the fastest and most efficient waxers around. She also gives great pedicures, manicures and facials. She is witty and so funny. She will keep you laughing through your appointments. 


Leanna Fox

   I have worked in almost every corner of the personal service industry,  crossing North America and Europe. I have spent over 30 years service providing, teaching, managing, directing and consulting. 


  Ownership seemed like the most natural next step for me.

  My goal was to create a special and different kind of space for clients, and a genuine family of empowered co-workers who support each other; a place where people from all walks of life could truly feel at home. Inclusion has always been extremely important to me. I believe we all need human connection and thus wanted a fun and social place where strangers could become friends and people could find support , kindness and acceptance.

  I believe in leading from behind and have been so lucky to have acquired an incredible group of humans to work beside. I feel all jobs in a business are equally important to the puzzle, and together we make Off The Hook. No one is highlighted as being "the business" because not one of us is. Off The Hook is what it is because of what we do together. So finding me on a stage or in a spotlight without the rest of the team would be a rare event. 

I am forever grateful for the incredibly passionate, kind, inclusive and driven people that  I get to work with every day.
