Philosophy: The body is psychologically programmed to be nurtured when it comes in contact with the world. My philosophy is to reconnect with that.
Mind/Body Balance: I feel that taking care of the body coincides with restoring the mind, therefore I partake in yoga, marital arts, extracurricular sports, weekly exercises and healthy eating. When focusing on the mind itself, I spend my time reading anything that educates me on the human body; including oriental medicine, acupuncture, martial arts, anatomy, psychology and nutrition. I also enjoy daily meditation and prayer to exercise the soul.
Favorite Treatment: The treatment that truly captures my passion the most is Prenatal. I was raised by a single mother and was surrounded by such strong women, which instilled into me the value of a woman especially through pregnancy. Mothers are overworked and under stress through the way the body changes through their pregnancy. I feel it is my duty yet privilege to care for a mother knowing that their focus and priority is not for themselves.

Philosophy: Massage to me is about treating the smallest problem/pain quicker, before people reach for the pills. Having the knowledge to help people in need of healing and relaxation is great!
Mind/Body Balance: In my spare time I like to work out, run, walk, learn something new, bend some rules and spend time with my kids. To keep my head clear I also get massages and boxing, I really like to push my body and get my blood flowing to work the toxins out.\
Favorite Treatment: Deep tissue, Swedish massage, sport massage, cranial sacral, reflexology and stretching. I really like doing it all at once during the massage.

Mind/Body Balance: I enjoy regular workouts (resistence and HIIT), golf, learning languages, spending time with my grandparents and going on walks with my dog, Waffles.

Philosophy: A regular skin care routine needs to cover the three essential steps in skin care: Prevention, Correction and Protection to get the maximum anti-aging benefits. 30% of results come from the professional skin treatments, and 70% of results come from your home skin care routine.
Mind/Body Balance: I spend a lot of time outdoors, it’s how I cleanse my mind. I love being at the lake-swimming, tubing, wake boarding. I camp every other weekend with my husband and daughter. I love being with my family.
I take impeccable care of my skin at home- all out SkinCeuticals skin care regimen. I do body brushing overnight then follow with all the luxury body oils, which are available in The Spa.
Favorite Treatment: I love doing Alpha/Beta Peels with collagen masks. They give immediate and lasting results. The Peels resurface and refresh the skin while the collagen regenerates and hydrates the skin.
