On the meaning of Holistic Esthetics

In the holistic approach to skincare we address that the external world reflects the internal world.  The body is seen as a whole entity with connecting parts working together to sustain body, mind and spirit.  As such, your complexion is a reflection of what is happening inside the body.  Qi, blood and lymph must be free to flow in order to maintain and sustain life.  Energy and emotions must be addressed and balanced in order to avoid problems and imbalances in the mind, body and thereby skin.

Qi is the vital energy constituting the human body.  In relation to skin health, when energy is imbalanced or stagnant it can add to the physical signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation or lack of vitality.  If blood flow is imbalanced or stagnant it can lead to devitalized skin, blotchy skin or rosacea.  If lymph flow is stagnant it can lead to dull, grey skin, acne/breakouts, and puffiness.  With different modalities such as facial mapping, facial gua sha, facial cupping, and so much more to come we can address you and your skin as one interconnected being.  With our holistic approach to beauty we aim to empower you with the knowledge of what is happening just below the skin so you can make more informed decisions regarding your skin’s care and deepen your connection to true beauty and well being.

On Planting Seeds of Growth

This month’s Ritual Pedicure focuses on planting seeds of growth.

Spring is a time of renewal and I find that this applies not only to the seasons but also to our lives.  Leaving the cave of winter hibernation and introspection we re-enter the world with renewed energy and a fresh outlook.

The featured gemstones in this month’s pedicure are Shiva Shell and Snow Quartz.

Shiva shell contains powerful sacred geometry that represents the flow of life and the universal knowledge that what is within and what is without are one and the same. Meaning that your life is a representation of your inner garden. And so springtime is a good time to contemplate on the seeds (thoughts, emotions, activities) you are planting in your inner garden and make a conscious effort to nurture the seeds you want to see grow.

Snow Quartz will help with bring mental clarity so you can contemplate the thoughts and emotions you are watering in your inner garden. It also teaches patience which is needed when we have a desire to grow and take a different direction. Snow Quartz has a softer feminine energy which can help you tap into the intuitive aspect of yourself and flow with ease in that new direction instead of forcing things to happen.

Lotus Wei’s Game Changer flower essence blend: This powerful blend of flower essences rebalances one with effortlessness, simplicity and lighthearted action.  It encourages rapid growth, creativity and spaciousness of mind.

Rosemary essential oil: A highly revered essential oil for enlightenment. This essential oil has a stimulating, invigorating and refreshing aroma that will uplift you.  It is thought to provide good luck and protection.

Our Ritual Pedicures include extended massage times, a warm facial compress and lots of TLC.
