Philosophy

Shastl specializes in holistic skincare that considers the whole person, because she believes that the skin is an expression of internal, as well as external, health. She practices a unique and harmonious blend of skincare and energy work, nurturing both inner and outer beauty. When you choose an energy work enhanced treatment, you will be guided through simple meditations to ground, center, and replenish your energy, and release blocks and pain. This process is strengthened by hands-on Reiki to support your healing journey. Factors are discussed such as diet, hydration, stress level, environment, overall emotional health, exercise, sleep, as well as your home skincare routine and professional treatments, which all contribute to the health and appearance of your skin.

One of the experiences that inspired Shastl to become an esthetician was her extensive struggle with acne and sensitive skin. Through her quest to achieve balance in her skin, she discovered that the overall balance of her life was directly connected to this. She found that proper skincare, coupled with a balanced and peaceful lifestyle, changed not only the health of her skin, but her entire experience of life. Yoga, meditation, a healthy diet, dancing, hiking, writing, reading, enjoying music, art, animals and nature, as well as connecting with and being of service to her community, are all ways she explores and enjoys balance. She is also a certified Massage Therapist and a Reiki Practitioner, which enables her to help you deeply relax while receiving your treatments. Above all, being of service is of the utmost importance to Shastl; adding positivity to your life, not only through the benefit of healthy, glowing, and younger looking skin, but by enhancing your overall well-being.

Shastl works with the Image skincare line, which offers a broad range of treatments, from an organic facial to an intensive Jessner-like peel. Image is a cosmeceutical line, which means it is formulated with pharmaceutical grade ingredients that can reach living tissue in the dermis to create noticeable results. The products work at the cellular level to diminish wrinkles, fade sun damage, firm, lift, plump, stimulate collagen and elastin, increase hydration, and stimulate cellular turnover for more youthful and healthy looking skin. There are no parabens, chemical preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances in the line.

During your appointment, Shastl determines the perfect treatment for you, based on your concerns, goals, and the present state of your skin. A simple, customized home care routine will be recommended for you that will support the continued good health and beauty of your skin. Educating her clients about how to best care for their skin and facilitating positive, noticeable change is the goal. A relationship is developed with the skin, as well as the individual. She is also happy to provide support for any questions or concerns that you may have at any time.
