Client Feedback

"Elke gave me a tremendous gift, a wonderful facial which everyone should try. My skin tone feels so soft and rejuvenated. The attention to detail, the exquisite technique and natural products Elke uses create a truly exhilarating experience".

Anna L.

"Elke's facial is a truly holistic and it is a very pleasant and soothing experience. The treatment feels cleansing, cooling and healing to my red complexion (couprose). Regular facials with Elke applying her facial sculpting technique lifted and toned my skin. My double chin has been reduced and my complexion overall has improved. My skin looks younger, more rejuvenated and toned."

Carla N.

"I have had severe acne for two years and was seeing a dermatologist, but didn't get any results. After seeing Elke and following her recommendations and taking herbal and skin remedies, my complexion is totally different. All my friends and family have noticed that in less than two months there is a major difference in my skin as it has improved dramatically. I don't have any new acne outbreaks, my skin is brighter and smoother, the acne scars are healing very well and the texture of my skin is much improved. I want to thanks and give my appreciation to Elke, and I highly recommend her because she is a very caring healing professional."

Skin Type

Your Dosha (Constitution) determines your skin type. Diet and lifestyle can support or aggravate your dosha. Compromised digestion and impaired cellular metabolism can create toxins in the body, leading to health imbalances. Waste can accumulate in any of the tissues including the skin. In the skin this can manifest as imbalances such as acne, boils and inflammation.

Toxins must be eliminated to regain optimum skin health and beauty. A combination of internal and external Ayurvedic remedies are needed to correct skin imbalances.

Vata Skin

Has a tendency towards dry and rough skin and is cold to the touch. A thin outer layer, can contribute to premature wrinkles and aging. Exposure to the elements, incompatible food (cold, rough, dry, etc.), lack of water and oil, excess activity and insufficient rest can exacerbate aging in this skin type. Ayurvedic treatments, remedies and skin care products nourish vata skin from the inside and outside, creating a healthy glow.

Pitta Skin

Can be fair, reddish or freckled, affected by heat and sun, burns easily, can be sensitive or oily and prone to acne and inflammation. Incompatible foods (oily, sour, acidic, spicy etc.), stress and chemicals can agitate this skin type. Toxins can manifest in the skin as inflammation, blemishes and acne. Ayurveda eliminates these problems at the core by detoxifying and cleansing from the inside out. Ayurvedic treatments, and skin remedies can restore a clear and beautiful complexion.

Kapha Skin

Smooth, thick, moist, pale, ages well. Can be oily and prone to large pores, black/whiteheads and acne. Excessive oil excretion combined with dirt results in the clogging of the skin pores. Incompatible food (sweet, salty, oily, dairy products, etc.) and a sedentary lifestyle can agitate this skin type. Ayurvedic treatments and remedies increase the circulation and detoxify the skin, restoring balance.

Mixed Skin Types

Could be normal or dry with oily T-zone. Combinations: vata-kapha, kapha-vata, pitta-vata or pitta-kapha.
