Developed in the early 1920s by Japanese spiritualist Mikao Usui, reiki is a healing art that holds roots in Buddhist practices but is in no way limited to practitioners of a specific religion. Aesthetician Laura Keller embraces the technique?s ancient roots while embracing the treatment?s use of modern technology. Keller?s service menu includes reiki healing and chakra cleansing, and also lists modern facial treatments that take advantage of high-end products from San?tas, Dermalogica, and Image Skincare. At the higher end of her scientific-treatment spectrum, Keller utilizes the Beautiful Image 900 to lend facial regions a smooth, even complexion.

Topped with a freshly shampooed and snipped head of hair, you'll look so sharp that the horse-drawn-carriage driver won't recognize you when you step out the door.
