Following the completion of her degree in hospitality management, Rachel Bentley has spent over 15 years working in the customer service industry. This path lead her to work at one of Canada’s elite fishing lodges in the Queen Charlottes for 4 years before becoming a paramedic, a role which she has assumed for 5 years while continuing her education with an Occupational Health and Safety diploma.
With the support of her extensive education, Rachel knew she was finally ready to become her own boss and begin her entrepreneurial journey into the medical aesthetics industry. Immediately drawn to the progressive capabilities of laser technology, Rachel knew that by bringing non-invasive, cutting-edge body contouring technology to Parksville, BC, she would be able to fulfill her desire to help people along their journeys to becoming the best version of themselves.
Rachel continues to bring the latest aesthetic technology to the people of Parksville, BC.

Dr. Heather Iverson, NDInjections
Dr. Iverson currently lives in Chilliwack, BC. She and her husband recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, December of 2018. She enjoys playing soccer, hiking, camping and traveling. Her practice has evolved into part-time cosmetic services because she enjoys boosting confidence and enhancing natural features in a subtle and beautiful way.
Dr. Iverson was drawn to Naturopathic Medicine because she believes in prevention. Her education has not only trained her clinically but has also provided her with the tools to naturally support and treat patients based on their individual needs. The conventional healthcare model makes it hard for patients to be heard, and therefore difficult to educate each individual on preventing progression of illness and disease. As a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Iverson’s philosophy is to integrate with other health care providers when necessary, and to look at all aspects of your health and create the best treatment plan for you.
