What is it?
Some of you may be surprised to see Skin Therapy and skincare products offered by Whole Body Wellness. I’ve rarely worn make-up. It just never seemed interesting to me. I wasn’t interested in skin care products most of my young adult life either. But in the early 90s after I moved out West, I began to see changes in my skin due to our dryness and altitude. I also went through hormonal changes during my first pregnancy that I could see were hard on my skin, even though by then I had already decided to focus more on eating organic foods.
Still, I ignored the signs until I happened to get a gift certificate for a facial. I enjoyed it and I let the esthetician talk me into trying some of the organic-sourced products she carried. The improvement in my skin over the next couple of months was so dramatic that I decided it was more important for me to spend money on skin care products occasionally, rather than always buying the newest running shoes.
I still don’t wear make up (well, hardly ever), but I have continued taking care of my skin, believing it to be just as important and completely connected to everything that lies under the skin, which I take care of through good nutrition.
So the reason that I am offering skin focused services and products is that taking care of my skin is a daily part of how I stay healthy, and I want to share them with you.
We were recently introduced to Hylunia and we want to share what we like about this product line. It is an organically-sourced product line that is free of parabens, sulfates, toxins, phosphates and gluten. It is NOT tested on animals. It is also affordably priced. The value of Hylunia is also seen in the amount of “work” that is does for skin. A small amount of any of its products goes a very long way.
We also like that Hylunia products are based on the traditional health practices known as Ayurveda. Ayurvedic traditions focus on balancing numerous functions in the body. Chief among them is inflammation.
Inflammation is a natural and important part of our bodies’ responses to injury or infection. However, if inflammation exists all of the time, it is harmful. Many of the health issues we face as we age can be traced back to inflammation as either a root cause, or at least as a major contributor.
Hylunia also regulates itself. Unfortunately, most commonly available skin care products use ingredients that contribute to inflammation, and there is no Federal oversight for ingredients that go into personal care products.

I’m new to town and needed a local sports massage place to deal with a recent injury and to go to for regular body work. Jennifer and her staff are very nice, easy to work with, and really take care of you. Best place in town if you ask me! I’m a very active person and need a goto place like this to keep my body working right. So happy i found them. Highly recommended!
I have gone to Whole Body Wellness about once a month for a coupla years. Jennifer is just the best deep tissue masseuse ever. She is very nice very knowledgeable and very strong. This is not fluffy massage. This is genuinely therapeutic massage which has helped my back, legs and feet immeasurably. I would recommend Whole Body Wellness to any human who has sore muscles that need relief.
Wonderful place. Alex is awesome and helped my neck and shoulder pain. Definitely worth trying.
