Thanks for joining us for our Spot Light series, where you get to know our practitioners a little bit better. Today, we're talking to Mary Wynne, one of our Dr. Hauschka Skincare Experts and skincare practitioners at our Uptown location. Mary brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise as a holistic esthetician. As a former international trainer for Dr. Hauschka Skincare, Mary has more than 30 years of experience applying homeopathic and anthroposophical principles to skincare. Her background is in traditional Chinese medicine and she's also a certified senior level teach of macrobiotics and Shiatsu massage. Read on to see if a treatment with her should be on your list!
What's the foundation of your practice and the common thread throughout all your treatments?
The goal of my practice is three-fold:
1. Relationship: I want to create a healthy relationship with someone in regards to achieving their skincare goals. One facial can transform your skin, but a regular skincare routine is required for long-lasting results and through many stages of life. This means some regular pattern of facial treatments and an at-home routine. I have some clients who I have worked with for more than 25 years, and I also end up seeing their mothers, daughters, sisters, etc.
2. Healing and connecting to inner beauty: My goal is not only to heal the skin but also to heal the whole self. Most people do not want to make lifestyle changes, but those who do see and feel the difference. My training is based on years of a special type of rhythmical lymphatic touching, which allows the client to access a deep place of rest within them. I know if I have made this connection with someone during a treatment because and someone has experienced inner peace, inner goodness and inner beauty.
3. Inspiring women, especially young women, to study and work in science, math and art. You be whomever you choose!
How does Spot support your practice?
I chose to work at Spot Spas because I share a similar goal or value, which is to always use the highest quality, cleanest (meaning organically sourced, no synthetic chemistry) and the healthiest products for skin, body and makeup.
I've been associated with Spot since its inception, as a sales rep and trainer for Dr. Hauschka Skincare, which I am really happy to be using at Spot—it's a cut above the rest! I created a relationship with Nell and her practitioners, and I was always impressed by the quality of work and the fine soul and spirit of Spot's team. I am happy to be on that team where we offer quality work and years of experience.
What treatments are inspiring for you right now?
Treatments that excite me are the longer Dr. Hauschka treatments that have the lymph stimulation and lots of beautiful, fragrant hot towel compresses. 90 to 120 minutes of heavenly bliss! I also really like the effects of the Arcona Cranberry Cleanse for a quick, deep cleanse with exfoliation.
We are blessed to have Mary on our staff. Her knowledge about true holistic skincare cannot be matched. I continually witness her drive to understand new methods, as well as comparing the results to her holistic skincare heritage.
