Maureen Vipperman, Spa Director of Spa at Laguna Cliffs
Laguna Cliffs, California--As the spa director of the 14,000-square-foot
Spa at Laguna Cliffs, Maureen Vipperman brings her passion for healthy living
to the workplace every day. This former U.S. Marine and mother of four began her
road to teaching wellness while working with senior citizens in Northern Michigan
as an employee of the state, and what she saw shocked her. Visiting senior assisted
facilities around the state, Vipperman was overwhelmed by how many seniors relied
on others to assist them in their day-to-day living, and she vowed to find out
more about the aging process to ensure that she and others wouldn't suffer the
Vipperman went to work with the spa director of one
of Northern Michigans first European resort spas, owned by Boyne U.S. Resorts,
to research all the components of healthy living. While she knew that physical
fitness and healthy eating were important, Vipperman soon realized that stress
was one of the number one causes of rapid and premature aging, which ignited this
spa maven's passion for her industry.
Vipperman joined the team
of Boyne U.S. Resorts to assist in the development of such resorts as the Inn
at Bay Harbor in Michigan, and Mount Grand Resort in Michigan. After the Inn at
Bay Harbor became a Renaissance, Vipperman was recruited to join The Spa at Laguna
Cliffs in 2004, where she not only helped develop the spa's programs but created
its signature line of spa products utilizing orange essence and orange rinds.
In addition to her spa director duties, Vipperman continues to
serve as a spa consultant, having worked with Black Sea Spas, as well as a number
of day spas in Michigan and the Orange County area.

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use. Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
I'm a believer.
