Meet the Expert: Mi Salon Spa’s Sherry

Every day for the next couple of weeks, I’m going to introduce you to a new team member at Mi Salon Spa in Florence Kentucky! Why? Well, a few months ago, we held our “School’s Back, Mom Relax” event there and I learned so many fun tips and tricks from  the experts I met that night that I decided to go back and interview them, see what inspires them, what they specialize in, and learn some helpful tips along the way! You can click here to follow along with all the posts in this series, and check back often for these daily posts so you can meet the whole team!!

Today’s interview is with esthetician Sherry. She’s been at Mi Salon Spa for 10 years now, and specializes in chemical exfoliations and enzyme facials. According to Sherry, enzyme facials are the perfect day time treatments because they take  about 40 minutes to do, and have no downtime. This fab treatment targets many skin conditions including acne, irritating spots, dull and tired skin, greasy areas, blackheads and irritable or dry skin!

Sherry also does eyelash extensions! She says these eyelash extensions are lashes applied with a stronger adhesive than temporary lashes. Generally, a single lash is applied to each natural lash. The bond is designed to last until the lashes naturally fall out. Sherry said a tip to make the extensions last longer is to not used oil-based eye makeup remover and to let your face air dry after washing it or taking a shower because oil and touching the lashes will weaken the bond between the lash and the adhesive! What a great tip!

Review: Karma Wellness Studio

Let me just preface this to say I NEVER win things. Well, about a month ago, it was my lucky day because I entered to win a day of pampering from Karma Wellness Studio at an event… I got a call the next day saying I had won! It included a Wellness Massage, detoxifying facial, body scrub, and chakra balancing treatment. Pinch ….me …. NOW! Of course, I booked my appointment immediately because I was so super excited! 

So, I arrive for my day of pampering, and the owner Rebecca Geiger met me to show me around and explain my services. She couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. I told her about areas like my neck and shoulders where I hold tension because I sit at a computer all day, and she asked a few questions to learn more about me and what I’d like to get out of my sessions.

I started off with the full body Wellness Massage, which Rebecca actually did herself. I like a deep tissue massage, and she was REALLY good at that. I felt like a new woman after that, but I still had the whole day still to go! I then went to Rebecca’s assistant who did my facial using some amazing naturally-scented detoxifying products (I ended up getting the lavender scented mist they used because it smelled heavenly).

Then, it was time for the full body scrub. This wasn’t something I’d typically get at a spa, but after having it done I’m in love. It was especially nice having it done right when summer starts and you’re starting to show more skin. I feel like it sloughed off all that extra old man winter skin. (I did see that one of their other body wraps is a “Fit and Firming” anti-cellulite treatment, which I might have to try out before my upcoming beach vaca! haha!)

Last but not least,  I went back to Rebecca for my chakra balancing treatment. Now, we’ve written about this before in Cincy Chic, but I’ve never actually had a full chakra balancing treatment done with Reiki. I was excited to try it out. On Karma’s site, it says Reikí is “the Japanese term for universal life energy. It is believed that every thing and every being is made up of energy. In the human being, there are seven main energy centers that regulate all systems of the body. The technique is a light touch performed over the clothes or incorporated into a Wellness Massage. This alternative therapy will make you feel extremely relaxed and give you a feeling of euphoria.”

I was intrigued! I don’t know if I’ve ever felt euphoria before this treatment, but now after having the treatment done, I’m a believer. I have never been more relaxed in my entire life. I was like my mind quieted and my insides turned to jelly … that’s the best way I can explain it. Definitely awesome and worth trying out.

They’re located in Mt. Washington at 2067 Beechmont Ave. Floor 2 Cincinnati, OH 45230, and you can call (ask for Rebecca, she was really great!) at (513) 233-9355. Their website is www.karmawellnessstudio.com if you want to learn more about them and their services!
