JessicaEsthetician and Massage Therapist
I am Jessica! I am truly blessed and honored to have the position of a caretaker. I chose this path years ago when I got my degree in public relations at Sam Houston State University, because I knew communications was my strong suit. However, I wanted something more intimate and highly regard the value of physical touch, in a world that desperately needs healing and is so distracted and incapable of experiencing rest. I've always cared about my own skincare and am fascinated with the science of it. As far as the "body" goes, I've been surrounded by hard working individuals my whole life who have so many physical ailments and daily struggles. Where there is pain, I want to help and where there is insecurity, I want to encourage. This is why I am dual licensed in both massage and skincare, and I achieved both at a wonderful and highly acclaimed school in Houston at the Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics Massage. We live in very fast paced and busy times, times where we need more devotion for ourselves to rejuvenate and to restore so we can give back what we've put in. My favorite part of this job is getting to know my clients and their lives, and growing with them as I help them achieve their goals for their body, mind and spirit. I treat my clients as I would want to be treated- nurtured, loved and spoiled.
