Sadie, the founder of Take Care Face & Body, uses her studies in anatomy, yoga therapy, ayurveda, and body-mind centering to offer holisitic and regenerative therapies for the mind and body. This woman seriously radiates glow; from her calm and relaxing demeanor to her intense knowledge of healing, she is the real deal.

We had the chance to experience one of her much sought after Microcurrent Facials, which is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. It works to stimulate and build circulatory pathways in the face, inducing deep relaxation and clarity through the many reflexology and marma points in the face which relate to the entire body. The facial uses fine electrical currents, strategically applied, to bring tissues to a younger, healthier function. The facial applications are sub-sensory while the gentle rhythmic patterns of microcurrent can be applied to the body to organize, strengthen and clarify the fluid membrane balance, tonifying tissue.

Using this advanced microcurrent technology, Sadie is able to tap into the body’s nervous system and realign patterns that need attention. There is a magical quality about Sadie’s approach to this technology; there is nothing sterile and overly scientific about a session with her, in fact it is the total opposite. You will leave looking radiant and feeling totally healed and nourished. It is Sadie’s connection to energy that makes her work potent and effective — see how this beauty GLOWS.
