Committed to staying up to date on the latest information, facials and natural anti-aging skin care techniques, Diana continues to invest in her knowledge, education and the latest organic products and techniques to help clients achieve radiant, healthy skin.
After years of working in the beauty industry, Diana realized that there were still some unanswered questions for client’s skin issues in topical treatments and products. Looking for answers beyond the skin care industry, she became certified in integrative nutrition from Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Understanding body as a whole, skin’s health depends on internal health as much as topical treatments and products.
Diana is a wife and a mother of 3 children. Family is what she values most, which is why health and safety are so important to her. Just like her business, her lifestyle as a whole is toxic free and organic. She regularly shops at Farmers Markets and visits farms to pick her own fruits and vegetables with the family. Paving a path for her children to learn and understand that whole foods, organic ingredients, and a natural life style will lead to a healthy and happy life.

Alana Sweetwater grew up in the mountains in Tucson, Arizona. Her family home had been converted into a wellness center. She grew up spending time with Native Americans, Shamans, Healers, and Alternative and Holistic Medicine practitioners of all kinds, and was exposed to a wealth of information and experiences that she would carry with her throughout her life. She developed a passion for Beauty, but not just physical, but rather from the inside out. Her work combines Esthetics, Cranio-Sacral, and a kind of Chakra reading and clearing she calls “The Souls Sessions”.
What are The Soul Sessions? Throughout our life, we experience many blows. They may be physical injuries, or emotional ones. We are taught that part of being “strong” is to get yourself together and move on from it, however there is a problem with this approach. The injuries, unless released are stored within us. Over time they become real blockages that can prevent us in some very serious ways. They can block us creatively, block us in how we connect with others, and can even manifest as physical problems within us.
The Soul Sessions are a combination of a few different modalities including Cranio-Sacral, Chakra reading and balancing, and simply talking about what comes up for you as certain strain patterns are identified and released. Then we will set up new energetic patterns that will serve you MUCH better. This is deep and powerful work, it’s about removing anything that is preventing you from being your full self and creating that which you most truly want.
Edward: Advanced Reiki Practitioner
Born and raised in the UK, I am a certified Advanced Level Reiki Practitioner. I pride myself on being extremely positive and have a huge passion for health, fitness and general wellbeing. Growing up with my father, who was a Reiki Master, I witnessed from a very young age so many of the positive impacts Reiki had on the people whom my father worked with. Watching my father master his craft, a craft that allows one to help others, was the most inspiring and driving force for me in becoming a Reiki practitioner myself. I can clearly recall receiving my first Reiki treatment. It was an extremely vibrant, relaxing and an overall healing experience. I knew even then that I had found an exceptional gift within myself and wanted to learn more about it. The more I learned and experienced Reiki the more it has become my true vocation and passion in life.My goal is to help people through the healing power of Reiki by assisting them on their Journey to better health, happiness and wellbeing.

Tania is a certified Reiki master. She has studied Reiki with Kerri Draper, Urban Zen at Yoga works and holothropic breathwork by Stan Grof. Tania’s interest in alternative healing began at a young age when she saw traditional medicine unable to heal those closest to her. Tania utilizes different healing modalities such as yoga, essential oils and Reiki in order to help people align their body mind and spirit and clear negative blockages. Tania believes that the most important components of all healing modalities are love and compassion.
Tania works with Essential Oils in her Reiki practice. Why essential oils? Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes. The fragrance of an essential oil can directly affect everything from your emotional state to your lifespan. When stimulated by odor molecules, the lining of nerve cells in the nose triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb then transmits he impulses to the gustatory center, the amygdala (where emotional memories are stored), and other parts of the limbic system of the brain. Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects. After Tania incorporated essential oils in her reiki treatments, she saw a lot of people experience positive results whether it would be for treating insomnia, stress or improving general well being and concentration. Tania loves the brand Young Living and also uses original essential oils from her homeland Bulgaria.
Sawang | Sawang hails from Thailand, where Thai massage has been practiced for 2500 years. Thai massage is considered one of the four branches of traditional Thai medicine. Sawang began her training in Bangkok’s Wat Po Thai Massage School, the oldest university in Thailand. ‘Wat’ in Thai means ‘temple’ and the massage techniques she learned at Wat Po are designed to elevate the mind and body into the spiritual realm. Sawang continued her training at the Shiatsu Massage School of California and is versed in a wide range of massage techniques including traditional Thai Massage, Swedish, Pregnancy, Deep Tissue, Reflex Energy, Sports and Aroma Therapy. Sawang has over 15 years of experience with massage therapy. During her off hours Sawang enjoys hiking in the Santa Monica mountains, yoga and expanding her knowledge of homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is a way of life for many Thais, and natural plant and herb based remedies are used to cure many common aliments. While it is known ginger root cures an unsettled stomach, Sawang may suggest chewing mint leaves for an irritated throat. Sawang’s joy of homeopathy began with her mother. Sawang’s mother, at 86, is spry, of sharp mind and never had a major medical problem. She is living proof of the healing power of massage combined with homeopathy.
