Melissa Wolf, Esthetician
My childhood began in Texas until my mom moved me and my sisters to WA in the early 1990’s. It was my early years in Texas where I would spend a lot of time with my grandma, whom I took after in many ways, at her salon in Corpus Christi. I loved the beauty industry even at a young age. In 1999 after receiving my first facial at a small Aveda salon in downtown Seattle I knew that I had found my passion. In 2004 I graduated from Greenwood Academy of Hair & Esthetics.

With almost 20 years of professional experience in the skin care industry, I have learned the art of combining luxury and comfort with precise skin improvements and true results. I started out in an award-winning hair salon MargiDavid in Eastlake. I have assisted in managing several skin care businesses. For the past 15 years I have worked at the Olympus Day Spa for women in Lynnwood. I specialize in Lymphatic Drainage Facials, Deep-cleansing, Acne, and Aging-Defying Treatments. Engaging all of the senses in my services with gentle touch, organic skincare and thoughtful combinations of essential oils, whole foods, herbs and or frequencies to restore youthful and vibrant, healthy skin.

Ashton, NTP
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and achieve optimal health – it just needs support. As an NTP, my primary focus is to give the body the support it needs to restore balance and optimal function. Nutritional therapy uses a holistic approach to health by addressing the root cause of symptoms instead of covering them up. Using various functional assessments, we can evaluate different nutritional needs and imbalances throughout the body and support these with real food nutrition, targeted supplementation, and lifestyle changes. My goal is to empower and inspire you to make food and lifestyle adjustments that support your body so that you can achieve your own sustainable version of optimal health and vibrancy. I hope to create an environment where my clients feel seen and heard. I hope to educate and empower people to nourish their bodies and cultivate healthy lifestyle practices. I hope to help those struggling to find answers to their health issues get to the root cause of their symptoms and support their body’s innate ability to heal. And I genuinely believe this is possible for everyone willing to do the work. Optimal health is not a destination, it is a practice and I look forward to helping you on that path!
