What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
Friendly outgoing personality. I'm not a product pusher, but I will kindly recommend products. Spring water bottles are offered upon arrival. I'm always smiling.

Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That’s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco, the center's holistic esthetician, blends years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. She reads each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy also helps clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.

Those interested in acupuncture may enlist in Kirsten Jacob, a trained herbalist who received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, Az. In addition to specializing in facial-rejuvenation acupuncture treatments, she also possess a background in pediatric respiratory therapy as well as general family treatment. Her specialities include pediatric and family acupuncture, behavioral/learning issues, and stress reduction and internal medicine. Kirsten incorporates classical Chinese botanical therapy into her work, which includes tui na–or Chinese medical/therapeutic massage–cupping, and moxa. When she is not helping her clients attain inner peace through eastern healing techniques, she tends to her kids while indulging in reading, writing, and traveling.

Led by board-certified cosmetic specialist and physician Dr. Pickens, About Face Aesthetic Centers' team of licensed master aestheticians helps clients to achieve and maintain healthy-looking skin with both injectable and noninvasive treatments. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and IPL photofacial treatments work to noninvasively resurface skin to address issues including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The center's staff can also use injectable serums such as Botox or dermal fillers to smooth fine lines and add volume to the face for a more youthful look. Clients looking to improve their bodies below the neck can opt for contouring VelaShape treatments, which work to slim the silhouette without invasive liposuction. The seasoned team members' versatile skill sets has earned them positions as beauty consultants for top cosmetic brands such as Aveda, Clinique, and Estée Lauder.
