Consults in Los Angeles in JULY


I will be coming to LA July 12th & 13th and seeing clients for a combination treatment that I have developed and practice with Kristina Holey at my home base in Oakland.

Here are the details:

This advanced treatment includes holistic skin and body support from Kristina Holey and Lyssandra Guerra, licensed holistic nutritionalist, specialist in energy kinesiology, and chakra therapy.

Kristina and Lyssandra began treating clients in San Francisco together in effort to offer the most comprehensive approach for healthy skin. The focus lies heavily on the internal systems, to help clients better understand how the things we do every day affects the skin - diet, gut health, stress/mood, sleep, hydration, hormonal shifts, supplements/medications, etc. - in addition to external stressors, skin microbiome, and topical products. The goal is to help you identify your stressors (internal and external), and establish better habits to support healthy skin function (and ultimately feel better).

The consultation & treatment (~2 hours) consists of:

  1. An in-depth intake and health history form (to be filled out prior to appointment)

  2. 5 day food journal analysis (to be filled out prior to appointment)

  3. 30 minute initial consult with Lyssandra & Kristina to discuss/address all skin/health concerns, review any additional questions

  4. 30 minute session with Lyssandra for nutrition analysis using kinesiology and muscle testing techniques to reveal nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities, and underlying gut dysfunction that cause distress to the eliminatory organ systems that affect the skin and restore them back to balance.

  5. 1 hour facial treatment with Kristina to analyze skin and focus on stimulation via massage, drainage (external and internal mouth work to target fascia network) and micronutrient delivery.

  6. Comprehensive protocol written by Kristina and Lyssandra - including specific dietary recommendations, possible supplementation (including brands), nutrition and skin theory, review of current skin care products, skin care recommendations, and personalized am/pm regimens complete with product recommendations (brand specific).

The treatment price is $450.
We hope this helps clarify our offering for this trip. If you would like to book please let us know your availability on Friday and Saturday (7/12 & 7/13) and we will respond with a few options.

If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

TRAVEL: Supplements & Essentials

Travel Essentials

I'm off to seek warmer temperatures for the weekend! 🌞 Traveling can hijack your digestion (dining out, new foods, time zone difference), detoxification (wilin' out), and stress levels (what isn't stressful anymore?) so here are some essentials to ease your systems ...

MAGNESIUM CITRATE: eases constipation + nerves. Start with 400 mg taken at bedtime.
SUNSCREEN: delay aging, prevent skin cancer + promote long term skin health @marieveronique_

CHLOROPHYLL: Removes toxins, speeds up metabolism + protects skin
TULSI + GREEN TEA: Calm your nerves + feel focused? Yes, please. 
BETAINE HCL: Prevent gas, bloat, heartburn by taking these with your meals. 
LEMONS: Alkalinizing, cleansing, stomach acid producing + stress reducing (vitamin C) 🍋🍋🍋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

TRAVEL: Keeping it Healthy


🔹TRAVELING🔹...keep blood sugar levels even so that you don’t end up grazing on a bunch of random snacks or street foods that end up making you gassy, bloated or sick...

1. Eat a protein rich breakfast & much 
2. Find a spot that sells raw nuts and seeds (instead of the vegetable oil, spicy salted roasted peanuts that are addictive, tasty yet inflammatory 😬 or alternate)
3. Order a hard boiled egg and take it to go... 7 grams of protein and a healthy fat

June's Eats

Seasonal Berries

Summer has arrived and along with summer comes some of our most favorite fruits and vegetables. Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and the artichoke help stimulate our liver’s capacity to metabolize and detoxify our nutrients and toxins. The antioxidants and phytonutrients from stone fruit, berries, and melon help cleanse our digestive tract, combat free radicals and can lead to cancer and feed our healthy glow.

Apricots, nectarines, peaches  (stone fruit)


Berries (blackberries, blueberries, mulberries, raspberries)





Fava beans

Greens (collard greens, kale, swiss chard)




Meal Ideas?

Corn and Fava Bean salad with heirloom baby tomatoes, avocado, and mint

Artichokes and Kale Pesto for an appetizer

Roasted Curried Cauliflower cooked with raisins and red onions, topped with fresh dill and mint yogurt
