Yvonne has devoted herself to the beauty and wellness business for over 40 years. While studying skin care, Yvonne traveled to and lived in various countries such as India, Holland, and Japan. After years of training and studying the various treatments available throughout the world, she started her first business in California in 1984 in South Bay, CA. As a child, Yvonne suffered tremendously from eczema over her body. By the age of ten she had the interest of knowing more about skin disorders and knew that she would either be a Holistic Doctor or a Skin Care Specialist.Embracing the spectacle of human suffering, Yvonne gives her knowledge freely and loves to help people in many ways. Her staff is professionally trained by herself using European and American standards to provide the best holistic skin and body care treatments available today.
Siena joined the skin care industry watching her mother, Yvonne, her whole life. At age eleven, she would practice by giving foot massages to local clients for fun. Siena focuses on providing results and a calm environment to guarantee the success of both a healthy skin and a healthy spirit. Siena incorporates an artist’s touch that translates through her mask application, brow shaping, and facial massage techniques. She also works as our social media expert to guarantee our clients are constantly educated to bring salon results into your everyday life.
Valentina, our lead female massage therapist has a nurturing and warm spirit. She incorporates a variety of techniques that truly address any concern. Her love for deep tissue and hot rocks combined with a gentle touch make for a perfect combination massage.
“My name is Heather Oliver, which sounds a bit like ‘feather all over’. This aid to remembering my name aside, I deliver deep tissue as well as lighter pressures to accommodate your needs. I found my calling at age 21, and confirmed my choice by buying myself a massage for my birthday; and it was wonderful! My approach is intuitive, often finding areas you didn’t know needed attention. I look forward to meeting you and discovering if we are a good therapy match!”
Dooshima has studied a large variety of wellness and massage therapies. By touch, intuitively she knows exactly where you are having bodily discomfort and uses different therapeutic massage methods to alleviate the pain; thus, this helps you to fully relax. Those with chronic pain often seek Dooshima on a monthly basis to alleviate aches and pains.
With appropriate pressure on the clients body we can achieve maximum healing and relaxation. A lot of my work incorporates acupressure points along the bodies meridians with different techniques to accompany and work with them. My studies on Shiatsu and Tui Na brings much more knowledge on how the body is connected so we can work more productively. We will not work against the body, but with it. Since all our muscles are connected we must approach the body as a whole to get maximum relief.
We are diligent about hiring only the most professional therapists that have compassionate and loving energy.
