Nurture Your Skin.
Nurture Your Soul.
GFT is a sacred space that I have created to provide a holistic approach to skincare. Healing through the alchemical transformation of holding ALL of the self with unconditional love. To offer a way to nurture, replenish, and restore your being.
Our skin is a reflection of our inner body. What we put into our bodies on top of physical and emotional stress is detrimental to the health of our skin. I believe the number one cause of skin issues stems from stress. Stress disrupts hormone levels which cause a breakdown in the integrity of the skin. Stress causes us to alter our diets whether that means choosing unhealthy options or not eating enough. Either way, it disrupts the gut, usually causing inflammation which shows up as acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, etc.
For Healthy skin, you need a healthy body which requires a healthy mind and vice versa. How do we achieve healthy skin, mind, and body? By taking care of the heart and soul. Caring for it, nurturing, and nourishing it allowing it to rest and rejuvenate. It is in using manual healing touch techniques to improve the skin, incorporating modalities such as Gua Sha, herbal poultice, specific facial massage movements, and reiki I help facilitate the body's natural design to heal itself.
Being the largest organ, what we put on our skin is equally important as it is absorbed into our system. I believe plant medicine is powerful and effective. Products without synthetics, preservatives, and harmful ingredients are my choices for skincare.
*Please note that I operate out of a shared professional space, not a traditional Day Spa. I do not offer walk-in services, All services must be booked in advanced.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Christine at Gateway Facial Therapies is truly a gifted woman. Best facial I’ve ever had, hands down. If you’re in need of some “self love”, treat yourself to the Shaman Mama Facial, it’s more healing and relaxing than most massages! Christine also makes amazing bath salt blends that you can pick up for yourself (or a friend), while you’re there. Highly recommend!!!
Minutes into my service, I realized I wasn't just receiving a facial, but that a healing was taking place at a much deeper level! Having been fortunate enough to both study with and receive various healings from many different shaman and medicine people, I recognized Christine's unique ability to extract "disease" from my being. She is an amazing force for positivity and growth for both inner and outer beauty. I highly recommend anyone on a path of healing to receive a treatment from her!
A true spa healing experience. So much more than just a facial. Christine is a true professional and healer. I always feel better inside and out after leaving. She always takes her time and caters to your individual needs. She is very knowledgeable. You will not regret booking an appointment with her!!
Christine is a very gifted esthetician and healer. I had a facial treatment from her called the Shaman Mama Signature Facial. It was the most amazing facial experience I've ever had! All her treatments have you laying on a heated BioMat which was lovely and warm in her cozy and beautifully decorated room. Christine's techniques are beyond spectacular. The products smelled and felt amazing. It was so much more than a facial too as it included a neck, shoulder, arm, hand, and foot massage as well as Reiki energy healing and massage on the face with rose quartz and jade crystals. My skin feels amazing. Run to see this amazing woman. I know I'll definitely be back!!
Stepping into Gateway Therapies instantly elicits a wave of relaxation. From the perfect picked crystals to the gorgeous green plants, it is clear everything was chosen with care and the customer in mind. The entire time I was there I was able to forget the day to day worries of life and simply focus on the relaxing touch of Christine’s hands working their magic on my face and also on my energy. Christine weaves reiki into each service and genuinely leave feeling AND looking younger and lighter than when you stepped in. I can’t wait to bring my mom when she comes to visit and have recommended many satisfied girlfriends to her as well!
Christine is amazing! Space is relaxing and tranquil even when getting a wax.
Best waxing and best facials! Always the most relaxing, therapeutic experience. My skin feels so clean and refreshed!
