  • Madigan Holohan

    LMT/NYS Licensed Skin Therapist

    Skin Care, Aromatherapy, Waxing
    ” I believe that making the time to relax and take care of yourself is the best way to stay happy and healthy. A lifelong interest in using the best that nature and biomedical science has to offer in order to stay vibrant has lead me to study advanced skincare, massage, and botanical essences. Living an active lifestyle and using a positive approach in everything I do helps me imbue unique facials with peace to help nourish the body and soul!
    When I am not helping my clients to relax you will find me experimenting with essential oils, gardening, or exploring the texture of nature via digital photography.”
