by | 2 November 2021

1. Tell us about your clinic, staff and local area.

We are a naturopathic skin clinic based in Bondi, NSW. We are a passionate team of 7 and follow corneotherapeutic practices of customised Dermaviduals skin care prescriptions, energetic facials and skin needling as well as naturopathic care. We believe healing skin in a holistic way and getting to the root cause of why that person is presenting with that particular skin concern(s). We also have an incredible Kinesiologist in our team who assists the emotional/energetic connection to skin/health issues for our clients. We want to assist our clients on a mental, physical and emotional level.


2. How has dermaviduals assisted your business?

Using Dermaviduals in clinic has hugely contributed to our success! You know Dermaviduals ALWAYS has your back when it comes to healing skin externally. We are so passionate about this skincare range and it has improved the skin health of so many of our clients. We try to take some of the credit but really it’s mostly Dermaviduals aha 😉
Dermaviduals has always provided an EXCELLENT service too and we feel so supported from this business and love how they prioritise education for their clinics.

3. What sets your clinic/treatment apart?

We are a multimodality skin clinic. Providing external and internal care as well as providing emotional/energetic support for our clients. We believe in a mind, body, soul approach to treating skin. We are big proponents on mental, emotional and nervous system support alongside physical support. We love encouraging our clients to meditate and promote a healthy emotional landscape. Our 3 corneotherapists are: 2 naturopaths and a nutritionist so our level of education and knowledge on skin and health and how they interlink is of a high standard.

4. What has been your most memorable career moment so far?

Moving into our new clinic on Denham St, Bondi in April this year. It was a HUGE moment for me. I dreamed of having a clinic with a reception space and a couple of treatment rooms. We did a photoshoot when we just moved in with the team and I felt so much gratitude to have a beautiful space to service our clients as well as the most amazing team! The growth we have experienced in a short amount of time (as well as having 2 lockdowns) blows me away.

5. What do you think is the secret to running a successful salon business?

As a business owner you set the tone for your business. My mental, emotional and physical health HAS to be a priority as this trickles down to the rest of the business. I am someone led by my intuition and I always trust this to make the right decisions – big or small. Creating a conscious business where I lead with my heart and stand strong in our values ensures our team and clients are aligned.

6. Tell us something that people may not know about you and/or your clinic.

We came runner up in Social Media Standout and Highly commended for Rising Star at this year Dermaviduals awards. Danika and I launched our podcast last week called – Skin Series which is also really exciting! We are both corneotherapists and naturopaths and wanted to share our knowledge to the world.
