I love the one on one connection with other people.  To me, facials are like a dance.  There is so much more to the treatment than tending to the immediate needs of the skin.  The skin can be a mirror to what is going on internally, whether it be emotional, diet related, or hormonal. I approach the treatment in this way – holistically.  Treat the person, as well as the skin.  When we are relaxed and nourished, the results of the facial are increased. Based on this philosophy, I created The Facial Circle.  This stemmed from my own experience with my skin as a teenager. I did not treat it well, there were times when I actually told it ‘I hate you’ and you know, it did not get better. So, I had an idea that if we approach our home care from a place of awareness,  and we feed it with skin products that we love to use and are good for the skin, we will see positive results. I discovered Eminence Organic Skincare in 2002 while at a trade show.  A friend and I had been toying with the idea of making our own skincare out of herbs and had taken a herbal class to help get that started. When we saw and smelled and felt Eminence, we both knew that was the company to use.  They had created a herbal skincare line! It continues to bring me joy in my personal home care, as well as treatments with clients.
