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.
Skin care knowledge came with the territory for being Diana's daughter. Kristina has been with the business since the beginning, in the early years it was when she had free time away from school, now she is here full time helping the business grow.
Kristina works for Radiance Wellness Spa and Diana Ralys Skin Health full time and works under many hats; managing day to day spa operations, client relations, marketing, website work, and much more.
Recent graduate from Loyola Marymount University (’15) with a Psychology Degree. Kristina loves to learn, aside from working full time at the center she is pursuing her Health Coach certification and will become our resident Nutritionist.
Kristina moved from Lithuania to the US in the year of 2000. She has an incredibly artistic soul. Kristina started dancing when she was only 4 years old. She tried many styles like ballet, ball room, jazz, gymnastics, cheerleading in high school and even earned orange belt with 2 stripes in martial arts. At the age of 16 she became passionate about photography. Her pictures received an honorable award in Santa Monica’s high school and placed in Loyola Marymount University’s student gallery 2014.

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.
