Why I Became a “Holistic” Esthetician

I had been working for the same company for 7 years.

It was the company that trained me, and I knew everything about the services and product line inside and out. I had built myself a steady clientele, and was making decent money. But, I was unhappy.

I had considered leaving the industry.

I thought about real estate, I also in this time became certified in Nutritional Therapy, and was trying to build that on the side. I was researching different career paths, trying to figure out what I wanted to do.

I was bored, I was unfulfilled, and I felt stuck.

I didn’t feel like I was making an impact in this world. I was a product sales specialist, I was an up-seller, I wasn’t doing what the client actually needed, I was doing what would make me the most money, because that’s what I was trained to do.

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was starting to be extremely conscious about I was putting in and on my body. I was already eating an organic, whole foods diet, but I was still using skin care and hair care products laced with chemicals.

I remember reading the back of the massage cream I used in the treatment room, and thinking “I need to wear gloves, I can’t put this on my hands”, and that is when I knew I was not where I was suppose to be.

I left this company a short while later, and started at an organic spa closer to home.

I started to immerse myself in all things holistic.

Studying product ingredients and the impact they have on our body and our health. Re-thinking the treatments I was performing on my clients.

And finally understanding what true skin health was, and how to achieve it.

I read books on skin physiology and anatomy, I took classes around the functions of the skin and how to repair, and nourish the skin using plant based products and healing modalities that have been around for thousands of years. I also went back to my nutrition roots, that had fallen by the wayside, and everything clicked for me.

I finally felt I was right where I needed to be, and fell in love with this career all over again.

Now here I am, 8 years from when I started this journey, still learning, still growing, and still in love with holistic esthetics. I think about if I had given it up, what I would be doing. I have found my true passion in this life, and I get to live it and work it every day, and for that I am truly grateful.

I founded this company because when I started this holistic journey, I had no idea where to start, or what it would look like. I have taken everything I’ve learned in my 15 years of Esthetics and Massage Therapy, as well as Nutrition and Energy healing, and I have combined it into one place. I hope to provide support and encouragement for other Estheticians who may be on a similar path as me.
