She’s got the Midas touch. Our woman of wonder of today, Shalini Tewari, is making many women look and feel wonderful at her one of a kind home facial spa, Hands to Heart. A cosmetologist by education, Shalini has an extensive experience of over two decades in diversified verticals of the Hospitality Industry. The expertise and passion along with an enormous urge to give back to beauty and care is what led to starting Hands to heart. “The idea comes from a deep desire and overwhelming passion to reach your heart via my hands.” says Shalini. The surreal aura and inimitable décor of this room traverses you to an oasis of optimal calm and peace. The name “Hands to Heart” couldn’t be more befitting, given the experience, which is holistically calming, invigorating and blissful. “This is not just a facial, expect to pamper not just your skin but also senses”, shares a happy client. Squeaky clean crisp linen, divine smelling aroma candles, tasteful décor, a comfortable spa bed and Shalini’s magical strokes which undoubtedly are the icing on the cake, make for a spa journey worth cherishing. The facial massage given personally by the immensely affable and experienced Shalini is followed by a hot oil scalp application and a mild back reflexology to release you of all your wasted energies. Because of the home setting, the Spa manages to keep it’s sense of tranquility and solitude. You are never rushed, you are never crowded.
Growing up, Shalini shares how she was never really fascinated by beauty as in make up and instant glows but holistic wellness from within. The whole myth that anti ageing care should start when you are 40 is wrong .Start young to stay young is the golden Rule! Go natural and the massage way but study the product well. There are many beauty clinics around us with the best of services on offer but at times the hygiene or the already hard worked beautician and the products do not do justice even when you pay a high price for the services. The idea behind just setting up a facial Spa was to give people an experience that is serious and professional by all means, whilst also being relaxing, luxurious and therapeutic. The philosophy is to blend well rooted traditional therapy and ancient Ayurveda with modern advances of wellness and methods of rejuvenation.At Hands to Heart, one can chose from an array of facials depending on the skin’s requirements.
Shalini uses top-of-the-line Forest Essentials facial products which comprise the highest grade of cold-pressed oils and creams, organic Ayurvedic herbs and pure steam distilled essential oils. These pure essential oil based products have higher efficiency to penetrate through the layers of your skin, and are superior to other synthetic and chemical based products. Shalini chooses to use only Forest essential products because they are100% natural, and every product is made from the healthiest (and freshest) ingredients that Mother Nature has to offer. In fact, she echoes the Forest Essentials mantra: If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin! Also in the pipeline are facials using stem cells technology.
Total rejuvenation, healthy skin, peaceful mind, a radiant smile and the weight of your wallet intact (Given the extremely well priced service) are what you leave the door with.
