Emily Rose Bracey became interested in skincare in her teenage years when her face errupted! Prescription drugs, various trials of different drugstore products, and finally corrective peels produced a face that left no trace of scarring. Wanting to bring that result to so many others who were struggling, Emily Rose entered into a training program of Esthiology after graduating from UNC Wilimington in 2004.

 
Tara Konkel came into skincare after spending several years in Europe. It was the experience recieved at the hands of those masters that inspired her to want to bring this higher level of spa services back the the US. Combined with a childhood spent on the shores of Cocoa Beach, Tara understands the need for corrective and pampering skincare.
