Julia March is a licensed skin care therapist trained in medical aesthetics, facial acupressure and lymphatic drainage technique, Reiki and Vortex Healing®.
Julia March uses energy work (Reiki and Vortex healing®, among other techniques) in the Alpha State facial ($345) to bring brain waves to resting frequencies (the alpha state). It complements the treatment’s more clinical steps, like microdermabrasion and micro-current muscle lifting. Her goal: 'to treat the whole person'. Call it the mind-beauty connection.
Pure. Natural. Glowing. Radiant. That’s what I want for your skin – absolute healing from the inside out. My philosophy relies on a simple principle: beauty is a process of de-stressing and rejuvenation that affects the whole being.
I believe that the paths to authentic beauty and wellness, which are inextricably linked, must take place on three levels simultaneously: in the body, mind and soul. When all three aspects are in harmony you’ll be gorgeous on the outside and feel ecstatic on the inside. You’ll leave my table with more than just a luminous, beautiful face: you’ll be utterly renewed and restored.
I studied at the Christine Valmy International School of Aesthetics, Dermologica Institute (NYC) and was trained by Anna-Dee Rinehart, a pioneer in medical esthetics. But my career as a skin care therapist and healer truly began when I was a young child in Slovakia: my grandmother was my first teacher. I watched her making her own creams out of flower petals, herbs and oils. I learned early that nature provides everything we need, and this inspired me to do my own beauty rituals as a teenager: weekly herbal steams and fruit yogurt masks.
My grandmother once said, “Nobody is going to marry you if you have freckles,” and although that proved entirely wrong, her enchantment with beauty and healing is a passion I’ve carried throughout my life.
I came to the states against my father’s wishes – he wanted me to become a teacher. I followed my heart instead, my grandmother’s healing wisdom always in the back of my mind. One of my first clients was a British Vogue editor who asked me how long I’d been an esthetician. When I told her I just started, she was stunned – she said that my hands felt like those of her veteran facialist, someone that she’d been going to for ten years. That’s when I knew I was on the right path.
From 2000 until 2002 I was the senior aesthetician at one of the most prestigious salons in NYC where I offered treatments to celebrities, models and editors. This is when I began to hear from clients not just that I helped them look and feel more beautiful, but that my facials felt like healing sessions with an energy worker. This confirmed something I’d sensed since I was a young child – that I could manifest positive outcomes energetically.
I began to study Reiki, Pranic Healing and then resonated with a powerful healing modality called Vortex Healing, completing the Omega level. All of these skills are embedded in my facials, along with the knowledge I’ve collected on my own healing path: how supplements and a clean diet can slow down the aging process and clear up the skin, helping us to live glowing, healthy, joyous lives.
I began my own practice in Soho in 2002. My hands have touched the faces of Bridget Hall, Linda Evangelista, Eva Mendez, Minnie Driver, Richard Armitage, Eva Herzigova, Liv Tyler, Michaela Conlin, Robin Renzi (founder of Me&Ro), and River Lloyd (celebrity hairstylist). I am grateful to work with such beautiful people, but my biggest pleasure still comes from seeing a bright, relaxed, and rejuvenated smile at the end of a facial. I never tire of experiencing this with my clients, old and new.
