At Journey to Natural Health, licensed massage therapists and estheticians operate with a single goal: returning clients to a place of optimal health and wellness. Their versatile service menu allows them to treat an assortment of complaints—blemished skin, achy bones, and sluggish spirits, to name a few. Relaxing massages, for example, can alleviate stress, while therapeutic ones aim to relieve pain. Estheticians seek to refresh skin with body treatments like the Soin Velours, which includes full-body exfoliation and a citrus-infused firming body fluid that's massaged into the skin. There's also a whole slate of facials, administered with naturally derived Yonka Paris products, to combat blemishes and other imperfections. And on top of that, energy-healing treatments like reiki and energy balancing help clients feel in tune with themselves and the minstrels who follow them in lockstep.
While most beauticians stake out one facet of the beauty world to call their own, Sandra Evans has spent her 20-plus years in the industry as an aesthetician, nail technician, eyelash extensionist, permanent makeup artist, and waxer. From her station in Chez La Femme Salon, she shares her vast beauty knowledge with her clients. Here, Sandra uses the latest equipment, such as microcurrent and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, to ward of wrinkles, and traditional and permanent makeup to highlight facial features. When it comes to clients’ nails, Sandra turns to her tool kit, which is filled with shellac polishes, therapeutic paraffin wax, and a bunch of leftover parts from an IKEA dresser that don't seem to go anywhere.
