The count down has begun for our official opening next week.
In only a few short days we will be open for all of your skin, spiritual and energy balancing needs! Think organic linens, wabi sabi vintage cane and plants, loads of plants. My green thumb and love for the greenery knows no bounds!
You will find us inside Luxe Body, in the delightful Orakei Village. Surrounded by some great neighbours. I am also happy to say that the coffee and smoothie bowls are great! <3
Skinography has been in my heart for years and the concept is a unique combination of 16 years worth of international experience. I initially trained in South Africa and began my journey working in a Spa for 7 years. Skin was always my love and it's not just “steaming and creaming.” I wanted teach clients about their skin, help them achieve their goals, and assist in setting real expectations. It’s about keeping the integrity of the skin and keeping it healthy. I want you to walk away with an education, too!
From there I moved to London and began working in one of Londons top and award winning Salons and Spas. I quickly become not only an award winning, Head Therapist but my passion for education to teach and refine new therapists, fuelled the education programme that I created and taught. This became my driving force and my obsession. To be able to impart knowledge, lift up and create a happy and successful team was my main core and value. I LOVE educating our new therapists and grooming them for the next generation of industry leaders.
After 4 exciting years in London, I traveled around Australia (In a van!) for a year with my now Hubby. We had so many adventures, I worked on a Pearling boat, on a Pearl Farm, 20km out to sea in Broome and we would be out for 10 days at a time. THAT was hard work and boy, character building! All I have to say is that the 3min shower time limit was one way to consciously save on water - something that I still do today.
In January 2016, we settled in Auckland and it has been wonderful. Since then, I've been working holistically with the skin using internal recommendations as well as perfectly curated skincare. I will be posting what amazing GAME CHANGING ranges I'll be working with in the next few days as well as a phenomenal internal range, that will give you all the nutritional and gut healing support you've been craving.
Now it's time to pour ALL of the knowledge and my passion for skin into my next chapter! After years of so many life changing experiences I have created My Signature "Heart to Hand" sensory journey. Each facial that I do, will & have always included this incredible heart centred philosophy.
Come down for a hot brew, raw treats, skin education and definitely the BEST facial you'll ever have. You can thank me later ;)
