It is 'Flu Season.

I love my clients and patients, but neither of us like being ill. Not only do I feel terrible, but being a solo practitioner & owner of a business, it is crucial in this economy to keep a full, productive schedule. Plus, I don't want to ever 'share' anything with you. Please-  if you are sick, feel sick, or not feeling 100%, call me and reschedule.  You want to feel well, and enjoy all the benefits of  your visit. Additionally, this time of year people tend to have more frequent occurrences of fever blisters/cold sores/oral herpes on their lips, nose,...

POISONS in your skincare products...

Over 16,000 studies have shown putting chemicals on your skin or scalp may actually be WORSE than eating them. When you eat something the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break them down and flush it out of your body.

They can accumulate in your body, and over-burden your liver.  Studies have shown that one out of five cosmetics might be contaminated with a cancer-causing agents.

SUPER-EXCITING NEWS! But, It Won't Shock you.

Being an Holistic Practitioner, you know I am concerned with everything that has to do with your skins' health. I follow the trends, continually keep current on all the Aesthetics, Dermatology, and products updates; as well as do extensive research on what is safe, effective, and healthy for you. If there is ever a question about something that may have unknown side effects, or the potential to have future side-effects, I will NOT use it. Some spas use Galvanic electrical treatments. Some clients know it as 'sparking'... Electrically-charged glass tubes filled with argon gas, which either is 'sparked' on areas,...

Love Your Facials and Manicures, but Concerned about Sanitation?

Sanitation is not an option, it is a must.

Prior to obtaining my Masters in Esthetics/Oncology Certification, and pursuing my Naturopathic degree, I was OSHA Compliance Manager in dental and medical practices for almost twenty years. That education and training provided me great insight into the importance of maintaining proper sanitation, and also a great deal of concern for the well-being of everyone when these standards are not maintained.

North Carolina, as well as most other states, license and regulate spas (skin & nails), and hair salons. They are given an alphabetical grade and...
