Bella has always been keenly interested in holistic healing, particularly skincare and body movement. Licensed as an esthetician since 2012, her focus is holistic skincare and advanced esthetics, focusing on plant and herbal, organic, natural products. She is also interested in the synergy of the body and how the external reflects what’s going on internally, which led her to also obtain a yoga teacher certification where she learned a fusion of traditional hatha yoga and Tibetan philosophy. Bella’s signature practice is to incorporate spiritual and ancient traditional aspects to her treatments. In her facials, she integrates Reiki, Dien Chan Zone (a facial reflexology modality original to Vietnam that was adapted and refined to Western culture in a school in Italy), Gua Sha (a Chinese technique using different stones that lift the skin in a similar manner to Botox) and Thai Herbal Poultice (traditionally Thai, except the herbs she will use are customized and hand-picked for the patient, are usually anti-inflammatory and can also be used for the body—the results look like cosmetic surgery!) The outcome is driven by intention, the specific herbs and massage techniques. East meets West.

Bella first became interested in helping others heal while living in Tulum, MX. She was drawn to the Mayan of the world and found that there was a lot of healing and healing modalities available in the area and found herself instantly drawn to these practices. In her last time in Tulum she helped open a Spa (as an Assistant Director and Lead Esthetician, co-designing the Spa menu) which later got voted 8th Best Spa in the World by Conde Nast magazine. Bella loved her workplace at this time in her life and felt it was her Happy Place; in front of the ocean, by the jungle, and not wearing shoes, as everyone was required to be connected to the Earth and be grounded.

Along with studying and practicing bodywork, being of service to people became a top priority for Bella, in a healing and nurturing way and in connection with our spiritual side. Bella is deeply inspired by art and culture, as both are beautifully intertwined with many traditional bodywork styles. The kind of bodywork that Bella primarily offers is Eastern-focused.
Bella is here to encourage you to practice rituals of self-care. It’s a vital time for yourself in order to get out of the flight or fight state and take a break from being in a rush to go all the time. In Bella’s eyes, we are all here to be the best version of ourselves that we can be, and bodywork is essential for self-care.


Kelly’s core work base is Coaching and Movement, with her main goal being to help facilitate a safe space for any person to remember their inner wisdom. This is where her work with you begins; a synergistic combination of being a mentor, life coach and movement rehabilitation practitioner. She sees movement as one of the most accessible forms of healing for our bodies and minds. As Kelly has developed a more compassionate connection to her own body through the practice of yoga, primal vinyasa and functional movement, she has set her body free. Moving every day without pain is her new normal and it is why she now has a deep bond to the practice. Alongside movement, Kelly sees self-care as one of the most fundamental tools to feeling complete in a world where we ask so much of ourselves and others. Self-care looks remarkably different for all of us and that is natural and perfect. Kelly wholeheartedly believes that taking time to nurture ourselves and support each other on this path of wellness is our greatest work.

Kelly’s clients come to her wanting to improve an aspect of their life. They are missing tools to approach life with ease and grace. They need guidance and to learn how to move again in a more natural way. Kelly’s approach helps clients shift their perspective and develop tools to gain better awareness of the world in which they operate from. Their key take-away is that they are their own healer. End your struggle with commitment, negative self-talk/ language, health, relationships, career and instead experience freedom, health, joy, vitality, community, connection. The body always knows the answers and we simply have to be reminded on how to listen to the signs.
