I literally joined citysearch so that i could review her--she's THAT good – i'm sort of hesitant to throw such a glowing review up here, as part of me wants to selfishly keep julia to myself... i'm petrified she'll become a celebrity magnet if the rest of the world catches on to this, and i'll have to book a year in advance instead of a week... but frankly, she deserves it.
i also know how frustrating it is trying to find an exceptional esthetician; even in new york city, perfection can be hard to come by. basically, i feel morally obligated to share my knowledge, after a 4 year search to find this woman. i will NEVER stray.
i have been seeing julia about once every two months for the past year, and she has utterly transformed my skin, not to mention my body. the results are absolutely visible, both externally and internally.
her techniques are unusual, and primarily based in an astonishingly vast knowledge of herbs and plants... while working, she dishes out tons of info on herbal remedies for both skin, body, and mind: from breakouts to cramps to liver, she's got a cure for everything.... it's all about taking the mystery out of healthy skin... and i've actually been able to absorb all of the info--which she dishes out in reserved amounts, so as not to overwhelm--and have gradually been adding to my regime.
beyond that, her entire process results in total bliss, as she is so incredibly generous and giving in the work... ah, it's difficult to explain precisely, but she's just SO attentive... and you are actually guaranteed to get HER, instead of getting a random esthetician every time you go into a spa-- like most places in the city. i've actually been able to build a relationship with her, PLUS, she KNOWS my skin.
i simply cannot rave about her enough. this is without a doubt THE best facial experience in the city, and citysearch would do well to acknowledge it.
i would know, i've been to just about every spa in nyc, and this is the first time i've ever felt compelled to write a rave. she's INCREDIBLE.
