President. Balnea Spa Products Inc
As a Homeopath, Esthetician and Educator for over 25 years, women’s health on all of its intriguing levels to also include the health of their skin has always been my true passion and throughout my career this passion determined the path of my personal education. Embracing the many aspects involved in the science of aging skin, homeopathic protocols for the treatment of chronic disease in women and a natural approach to the treatment of mental health, what followed was the desire to continue teaching and to share this wealth of information with other women and spa professionals. This philosophy is reflected in our ongoing education program and choice of products that I want to share with you, our partners in business. Our collection of ethically produced skin care lines, include body care products, make up and beautifully hand crafted essential oil blends for the treatment of the overall wellbeing of your client offering a complete approach to beauty.
