When self-described “holistic nutritionist and healthy-life enthusiast” Barbara Baumann began travelling to health retreats and spas around the world, she was dismayed to find that very few aestheticians actually rely on natural products in their treatments. Baumann took it upon herself to study European spa practices, earning a degree in Clinical Nutrition and Detoxification and using her newfound skillset to found The Holistic Body Boutique. As its name implies, Baumann’s boutique combines her passion for aesthetics with her keen appreciation for natural, holistic healing.
Today, detoxifying treatments and nutritional weight-loss programs dominate the spa’s service menu. All-natural facials, massage, and body-contouring treatments eschew preservatives and harmful additives in favour of organic ingredients that aestheticians custom-blend and apply with free-range loofahs.
