What does wellness mean to you?

To me, wellness is a constant pursuit of good health. There is a saying that three equals Qi. Mental, physical and emotional/spiritual wellness all go hand in hand. If one is out of balance, they all are and ultimately it will be seen in our skin.

In all of my treatments, I try to ask questions which will help me have a better understanding and address those areas of concern for my client. From discussion of diet to lymph stimulation to reiki or just simply being a good listener, my goal is always for someone to leave feeling more beautiful and in balance than when they came in.

Why did you get into Esthetics?

I have always been interested in skin and skin care products (mostly because of the smells when I was younger). I have a very keen sense of smell and always loved trying to pick out the different notes or scents in products. As an adult I spent a lot of my free time researching and looking for natural ways to improve my skin and after several years in a very stressful job, I found myself booking a lot of facials and massages as a way to de-stress (I always preferred the facials). One day when I was getting a facial it just hit me “this is what I should be doing with my life”.

I also did a lot of volunteer work at a nursing home when I was in my early twenties and realized the power of touch was truly a remarkable thing. The giver and the receiver both benefit greatly from a touch that has good intention.

What is currently your favorite treatment at Oasis and why?

I truly love the Elemis Biotec Radiance Renew Facial! I find myself smiling almost the entire time because I know how the client is going to feel when they see their skin. It is so rewarding to be a part of that.

The treatment incorporates an ultrasonic peel and galvanic technology. It reenergizes tired, dull looking skin while brightening and evening out skin tone. It also reduces dark circles under the eyes and restores vitality and skin health legitimately making you glow.. all while protecting against further environmental damage and pollution.

So, whether you have been traveling by plane (which causes dehydration), have recently been exposed to extreme elements or simply had one to many glasses of wine the night before, (no judgement, this is New York 😉) this is definitely the treatment for you.
