Avalon Holistic Wellness
Avalon Holistic Wellness is a private studio offering a wide range of services to improve wellness. We achieve wellness by addressing all aspects of the self - body, mind, and spirit. As a registered aromatherapist and holistic health practitioner, I utilize clinical holistic aromatherapy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle modifications along with a range of skincare services to benefit the whole body inside and out, instead of one single aspect.
I enjoy combining a clinical approach to healing with holistic techniques to provide a broad spectrum of wellness services. By using these various approaches, I am able to support your health, improve your well-being, and provide clinic-level spa services that are personalized for you, the client, that most spas or clinics do not offer. I carefully designed my licensed home office to combine colors, lighting, sounds, and scents to create a place of safety and peace where you receive one-on-one attention to nourish your mind, body, and spirit. This is more than a business to me, it is a calling and I embrace it.
Avalon, in Celtic mythology, is the mystical Isle of Apples inhabited by healers; and where King Arthur was taken to be healed after the Battle of Camlann. Avalon Holistic Wellness, like the Isle, is a place dedicated to healing the physical body, calming the mind, and soothing the spirit.
