Evolutions Employee Spotlight: Gill Lainer

 What really makes Evolutions special is our wonderful employees.  When we started Evolutions Medical Spa back in 2005 we had 5 employees. We are now up to 30! They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be.  We are starting this feature to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions’ team. We’ll be highlighting two employees each month.  This month we are highlighting our Nurse Practitioner, Sue Manseau, R.N.P.  and our longest tenured Massage Therapist, Gill Lainer.  

Gill Lainer Evolutions Medical & Day SpaEmployee Profile – Gill Lainer
Gill is a massage therapist who worked at Avia Spa for many years and came to Evolutions when we took over the old Avia space.  Originally from Sweden, she is an amazing massage therapist and particularly excels at Swedish massage, Warm Oil massage, and all of the body scrubs and wraps.  She is an extremely caring and compassionate person.

I worked on a cruise ship as a stewardess.  I travelled all around the world and met many interesting people.

 What do you like about working at Evolutions?

I like working at Evolutions because it is a modern and state of the art facility.  Evolutions has had clients who have come here since it opened. I also like my friendly co-workers and quiet surroundings.

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

I like giving the warm oil massage and the body treatments because the client relaxes so much that it takes them to another world.  I also enjoy giving Swedish massages because I can customize the treatment based on the needs of the client.

Revision Intellishade.  It is an anti-aging tinted moisturizer with sunscreen.
