Over the years we are grateful to have such an amazing group of talented people. We are always thrilled to introduce new therapists and team members who have made their way to Element NHA! Let’s send them some love…
Ashley is the newest esthetician to join our Element family. Born and raised in busy Brooklyn, Ashley learned at a young age the importance and value of self-care and finding balance. Inspired by her mother, a fitness instructor and cosmetologist, Ashley was accustomed to a lifestyle that revolved around wellness. She enrolled in Christine Valmy International School of Esthetics to embark on a career that combined her love of two things: working with her hands and helping others. After many years of perfecting a variety of facials, waxing, makeup applications, and brow shaping, she took her love on the road and relocated to Oahu, Hawaii. There she enrolled at The Healing Arts College of Massage and obtained her massage therapy license. Upon her return to Brooklyn, she began sharing her newfound appreciation of a more relaxed and spiritual approach to wellness. Her facials are customized to each person’s needs and she treats all skin types. Whether the goal is to cleanse, relax, rejuvenate, or repair, you won’t be disappointed. A combination of knowledge, skill, and kindness makes Ashley’s treatments an incredible, enriching experience.
