Are you a Sensitive Soul? Take my quiz and find out...
Do you have sensitive skin?
~ Many products are too irritating for you. You sometimes break out in red bumps, experience tightness, itching or burning. Maybe you have a family history of allergies or eczema.
Are you sensitive to “active” ingredients?
~ Most popular anti-aging ingredients disagree with your skin, leaving you red, itchy or flaky. You need some youth-enhancing products and techniques that work for you.
Do you have a sensitive body?
~ You like your massage therapist to work through your areas of tension, yet most Deep Tissue work leaves you feeling bruised and battered.
Are you sensitive to our environment?
~ You recycle, carpool, try to buy organic, or take other actions to nurture this place we call home. You continue to look for new ways to make taking care of our planet part of your daily life.
Are you sensitive to your budget?
~ Although you would like to incorporate more sustainable practices into your life, you find most organic spa experiences and products to be out of your price range.

My specialty is customizing moderately priced, eco-friendly, organic-focused massage, facial, and hair removal sessions for Sensitive Souls seeking vibrant health, joy, comfort, and connection with themselves, and with the natural world around us. I offer high-touch, low-tech techniques designed for you to look good, feel nurtured, and live better.
What do I mean by organic? To me, “organic” means I will provide you with 100% organic cotton sheets to relax on. It means organic cotton facial wipes for your facial. Whenever something will be touching your skin, I strive to provide an organic and/or food-grade ingredient, process or experience. If I can't, I provide the option that comes the closest.
As a one-person business, I carry a small selection of carefully chosen face and body products that cover a wide spectrum. For a more "whole foods" minimally-processed skin care experience, I offer enzyme-rich masks and herb-infused oils that I blend myself on a seasonal basis, using organic, food-grade ingredients, free of synthetic chemical solvents and GMO’s. Your sessions might include raw honey, mineral-rich clays, powdered turmeric, licorice, Indian gooseberry, and oils such as hemp and pomegranate. The majority of skin products at the studio are vegan-friendly. The 2 large scale professional lines I use are Jessa and 302.
Jessa emphasizes plant ingredients combined with more processed extracts and concentrates high in antioxidants and other skin supporting functions, such as resveratrol, hyaluronic acid and peptides.
302 is the most conventional skin care line I carry, utilizing more synthetic ingredients, although they are all carefully chosen for safety and efficacy. The advantages of 302 are the high amounts of organic green tea and jojoba, well-tolerated forms of vitamins C & A, as well as the 302 proprietary Avogen extract, along with a relatively small number of ingredients per product, and the ability to purchase them without any fragrance or essential oils. These are all a huge advantage to Sensitive Souls who want a combination of botanicals with synthetics, in a convenient form, that their skin will thrive on.
