Madeline, better known as Maddy around The Skin Renewal Studio, has worked as a certified massage therapist and aesthetician since 1982. Her decades of experience with skin- and bodycare become obvious as she unfurls a range of beauty and massage services for clients. She uses bioelectric rejuvenation to erase fine lines and contour the skin during nonsurgical face-lifts; waxes unwanted hair from the face and body; and alleviates aches, pains, and stress with soothing deep-tissue, Swedish, and raindrop-therapy massage treatments.
Despite excelling in the world of beauty and massage therapy, Maddy has proudly declined to park herself on her laurels. Currently training to become a personal coach, she hopes to help clients cultivate a sense of inner strength by realizing what she’s known all along: beauty starts from the inside, but that doesn’t mean you should swallow makeup. Her studio even symbolizes this notion. The interior drips with aesthetic splendor in the form of hardwood floors, dark wooden tables, plush salmon-colored chairs, intricately patterned rugs, and plants and flowers.
