Established in 2015, The Body Politik was born to fill a need for Body Positive and Queer / Trans friendly self-care services in Vancouver. Inclusive values have always been at the core of I do, and I have a reputation for providing quality services with care and compassion.
Pricing services based on anatomy rather than gender, respecting pronouns, and creating an environment free of negative body talk are some of the ways I provide a safer space for folks from all walks of life to access self-care services.
Specializing in waxing - especially Brazilian / intimate area waxing for all genders; I’ve got a big personality and a laugh to match, a wild sense of humour, and a no nonsense approach to client education, bodies, and the variety of ways they show up in the world.
When I'm not in the studio you can find me loving up on Elvis (my tiny shadow of a rescue pupper), appreciating good food and drink, or planning my next trip. I love hip-hop, sci-fi & horror movies, hot sauce on almost everything, learning and experiencing new things. Wonder at the world around me is something I hope never to lose.
Got questions? Drop me a line and I’m happy to answer them.

Although B.C. has now entered a more open phase concerning public health measures, The Body Politik will still be requiring:
- Face masks to be worn while in the building due to the close proximity required for services and the communal nature of the waiting area.
- Without exception clients must inform The Body Politik if they are feeling ill, even if it’s just a cold.
I continue to be committed to preserving the safety of my clients and our community at large and your continued support and understanding of this is appreciated!
