We take an integrative approach, making your beauty rituals lovely and simple while understanding that vibrancy lies in the micro and the macro of our lives. Where we live, what we breathe, how we eat, everything we touch and everything that touches us affects how we feel and look. Facial massage as reflective self-care? Yes! 5 minutes of breath work or contemplation to reduce inflammation? Yes please! Getting the body’s needs met with a delicious, abundant diet, rich in nutrients to overcome deficiencies? Yes! All while enticing our senses with the glorious scents of beloved plants to enhance our beauty, our moods and, in essence, our lives? Yes, yes and yes!

Integrative Therapy for Reducing Redness and Reactivity
Helpful to anyone who wants to support the way their skin cells communicate. Clients with over-reactivity, such as inflammation, rosacea, a tendency towards hives and eczema have benefitted from this therapy.
The Integrative Therapy to Improve the Appearance of Old Scars
Focuses on activating the immune system in a specific way encourages it to take another look at past issues to improve the appearance of the tertiary damage.
The Integrative Therapy for Maintaining Radiance at Any Age
For clients of all ages who want to maintain their radiance while improving the appearance of past conditions that may have resulted in loss of elasticity, dark spots, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. This therapy is suitable for anyone, though most beneficial when the skin is functioning optimally.
Phototherapy is the use of specific light emitting diodes within a broad range of color-frequencies to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface and encourage new-cell growth for healthier, more radiant skin.
We have been utilizing these lights in our Holistic Skin Care Services since 2005.
Benefits reported include: better elasticity, firmer skin tone, evenness of skin tone, diminished evidence of old scars, less visible pores and fewer break-outs.
Expect that your skin care specialist will also guide you in the diet, lifestyle, and topical changes you will need to make in order to achieve the best results.
For Your Eyes Only
The treatment starts with our Herbal Eye Mask, which contains fermented kelp, spirulina, our 5-herb, whole-plant skin nourishing infusion and clay which prepares the skin around the eyes to accept phototherapy. In addition to integrated therapies of LED light, which boosts collagen, we use Facial Point Stimulation (Facial Reflexology), Gua Sha and lymphatic drainage to improve both the physical functioning of the skin as well as the energetic messages of the subtle body providing lasting results that actually improve over time.
Ultrasonic waves provide a unique type of massage that smooths out the eye area while active vitamins (such as DMAE) and Calming Botanicals penetrate the skin to tighten the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Micro-current is then utilized to give the muscles around the eye a specialized workout: resulting in an immediate temporary lift. Great when you have something important you want to feel and look awake for!
Both the Energetic Eye Lift and the Ultrasonic/Microcurrent Eye Lift can be performed together for a treatment that gives immediate gratification but continues to improve the area as time goes on for actual, lasting results.
Facial Point Stimulation
Facial Point Stimulation is similar to acupressure or reflexology in that using a point on the surface of one part of the body, sends a reflexive message to the subtle body and resonates within certain organ systems. It is a time-proven energetic modality that allows the practitioner and the client to focus on internal balance in the body’s quest for total equanimity within all organ systems, increasing overall vitality. We developed this method over many years of clinical practice to simplify obfuscated ancient teachings and return healing back to the self.
