1 Year in Wellness

Woohoo! This year marked my first official year as a Holistic Wellness Consultant. This means that not only do I help people LOOK their best, but now I help them FEEL their best too! My signature 3-Month Program "The Art of Beauty & Wellness", incorporates my 10+ years of experience as both a makeup artist and holistic living enthusiast. 

Most of my clients are busy professionals who recognize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, but like most people, could use help to bring about positive and sustainable changes. Here's a peek into some of my favorite success stories from 2011:

* One of my clients was a Grammy-nominated songwriter who was already eating vegan, but wanted to transition to a raw food diet. I helped him find convenient ways to make that possible in the midst of his hectic and demanding lifestyle. He loved that "going raw" helped him sleep better, have more energy and be even more productive in the studio. 

* I helped an overworked fashion executive find time for meditation, journaling, exercise and even planting her own vegetable garden in the city. With my support, she created more balance in her life and embraced a holistic approach to healing. She also received a private makeup lesson, using all natural products, which boosted her confidence and added to her happy, healthy glow. 

* My latest client, an internal medical doctor, knew that a plant-based diet would help her maintain her weight and prevent diabetes, but she needed guidance and motivation to stick with it. Not only did she fall in love with vegetables, but she fell more in love with herself! She bought new lipstick and heels for the first time in years AND enrolled in Integrative Nutrition!

Sharing my passions in both beauty and wellness to make a positive impact on the lives of others is incredibly rewarding. I am so inspired by what the future holds for me and my clients.

Shiatsu + Buddha Nose

I'm a big fan of massage but had never tried shiatsu... until I met the marvelous Amy Galper! We connected at her Organic Beauty Bar, a unique pop-up shop offering natural makeup and skincare, including her own line, Buddha Nose. A shiatsu practitioner for many years, Amy created self-care products that complemented her healing work, using the powers of essential plant oils. Buddha Nose is a collection of aromatic balms, sprays, salts and scrubs that connect mind, body and beauty... I was sold!

Without knowing exactly what to expect from shiatsu, I booked an appointment with Amy right after the holidays. It was a fabulous way to begin the New Year...the experience was so wonderful and healing.The best way I can describe it is a mixture of massage, acupressure and reiki. I felt both a physical and energetic clearing that was very powerful. I got to take some of that home in the form of Buddha Nose Heart Spray and Girl Balm... heavenly!

If you're in NYC, I highly recommend booking a shiatsu session with Amy ( She is currently offering an awesome deal- 3 Sessions for $200! If you live elsewhere, ask around for recommendations in your area. Wherever you are, definitely pick up some Buddha Nose products and experience the healing essence for yourself!
