Reisa Mehlman Biography

As a holistic skincare professional, Reisa views each individual as a whole - mind, body, and spirit energy combining to form our entirety so that we are seen as the sum of all parts.

"I understand how it came to be that some perceive spa services as merely "pampering." But that is just not so--based upon scientific data. Stress creates disorder and illness. When we combat stress, when we take care of our body systems by listening to its needs, we achieve a deeper sense of wellness, which provides us with a greater quality of life. That's how I see spa."

In order to achieve desired results and address concerns such as acne, rosacea, aging, overall skin health and rejuvenation, Reisa employs a variety of products including GloTherapeutic and Farmaesthetics, along with treatment options incuding peels, and microdermabrasion. For nails, Reisa uses a variety of products including SpaRitual, OPI and Aromafloria. At Living Well, you can have an organic manicure or pedicure and for those whose feet need greater care, there is the "Thera-pedi."

"I see myself as a consultant, offering professional service to address your desires and needs. The skin care market is so vast with so many different products that it can be daunting. Clients trust me to do the legwork, to research and provide effective products, treatments, and advice."

When it comes to skin health, you can rest assured that the highest degree of sanitation is maintained at Living Well Healing Arts Center & Spa. If material cannot be sterilized, then it is thrown away. This includes nail files and all other skin and nail accoutrements.

"Your health and well being are our greatest concern. This is Living Well."

You should feel warm and welcome, surrounded by people who care about you and what they are doing. This is the environment we strive to create at Living Well Healing Arts Center & Spa.
