The Treatment Room
I have been in practice as an esthetician for over 25 years. My guiding principles and values within the world of skincare and beauty lie in the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda. Our skin is a complex organ, serving as a pathway for detoxification, a channel for absorption and excretion, a regulator of temperature and moisture, and a producer of endocrine hormones. But, at a more profound level, the function and appearance of the skin is deeply influenced by our nervous, endocrine and immune systems. It is a reflection of everything that is going on at every level of being, an indicator of the workings of the body, mind, emotions and spirit. In Ayurveda, the sanskrit word "rasasara" literally translates to skin, but it is also described as "the cream that rises to the top", meaning the quality of the skin is the result of everything we consume - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. It is a mirror, reflecting what is occuring within us at every level of being. "As within, so without".
As a holistic esthetician, my main objectives are to create the space and time for my clients to truly relax and to offer procedures and products that help maintain balance and radiance from the inside out. The tools I utilize in my practice are primarily my hands (massage and energy modalities) and whole plant based preparations.
We are a slow beauty sanctuary providing holistic skincare services, informed by the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. The foundations of our treatments are high quaility medicinal botanicals and healing massage modalities. We handcraft many of our own preparations, in close relationship and collaboration with the plants. We also carefully curate products, partnering with small companies that are congruent with our values and commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. We proudly offer Live Botanical and H is for Love products.
Our treatments are uniquely designed to deliver healthy, radiant and rejuvenated skin, and will be thoughtfully custom tailored to your needs with each visit.

Facial Reflexology Treatment
MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE: SELF CARE FOR SELF AGENCY
Dien Chan Zone is a form of reflexology, working with mutiple zonal maps on the face. When the skin (a major sense organ) is stimulated according to established maps which reflect all the internal organs, the nervous system responds to reach the targeted area. Facial reflexology treatments work to restore the correct flow of energy in the body. The body signals to us a problem by means of pain, discomfort or sensation in the body. Such a symptom indicates an energetic block (following the same principle as acupuncture). We begin with a discussion of symptoms you may be experiencing or would like to address. The treatment itself is deeply relaxing and restorative. Following the appointment, you will be given a map of areas to work on at home between appointments.
