Frequently asked questions

answers to common questions

  • My goal is to provide you with exceptional service. Service that surpasses your expectations, delights you to your core and encourages you to return regularly, because you're not only looking more radiant, you're feeling radiant. Providing a refuge of comfort and belonging... a place where you are free to COME AS YOU ARE, be seen, and return to your day feeling nourished and GLOWING. This is judgment-free space and everything shared is safe and confidential.
  • Thoroughly fill out the online intake form and submit prior to your service. 

  • It’s helpful to arrive 10 minutes early to allow for time to unwind, use the restroom, etc 

  • Feel free to come either bare-faced or with makeup. Any makeup will be removed during your cleanse.

  • Please turn off  or silence your cell phone during your appointment.

  • Come well-hydrated as many of the modalities I incorporate require good hydration for optimal results.

  • To allow yourself the ability to relax quickly and be at ease, refraining from stressful activity, news and/or social media 30 minutes prior to your appointment is encouraged.

  • Avoid the use of aggressive exfoliants, peels, AHAs, retinols and/or vitamin A derivatives (Retin-A, Tretinoin, etc) for 7 days prior to your service.
  • You will disrobe privately, put on a spa wrap that will completely cover you, then get under the covers of my comfortable, heated table.

  • Please remove your bra prior to putting on the spa wrap.

  • I encourage removing your pants for the coziest level of comfort, however feel free to keep them on if you prefer. Please keep your underwear on. Socks optional.

  • Please let me know if the temperature of the table needs to be adjusted.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs and rigorous activity 24 hours following your facial.

  • To allow for uninterrupted absorption and effectiveness from the applied topicals, I recommend going makeup-free the remainder of the day. Use of lipstick and/or eye makeup is ok.

  • If your treatment is in the afternoon or evening, there's no need to cleanse your skin before slumber.

  • Avoid exfoliants, peels, AHAs, retinols and vitamin A derivatives (Retin-A, Tretinoin, etc) for 7 days following your service.

  • To ensure the availability of your next appointment, booking your next appointment after your service is highly encouraged.

  • I encourage regular, monthly facials. Why? Because regular, monthly facials 1) create clean, healthy skin,  2) encourage a trusted relationship in which you will receive a customized plan with a licensed professional that knows your skin and is focused on addressing your concerns while striving to meet your goals, and 3) saves you the struggle, time and expense of purchasing wrong or unnecessary products. However, a missed benefit to receiving regular facials is the nurture and soothing our nervous system receives. Humans need touch. Belonging. Connection. Our nervous systems are often overstressed and burdened, which deeply affects our quality of life. Slowing down to regularly receive intentional, healing touch encourages lymphatic flow, releases restricted fascia and relieves muscle tension in the face and neck, while encouraging a nervous system reset. And a healthy and balanced nervous system is vitally important to the wellness, vitality and functioning of all beings.
