Every Wednesday afternoon, I take my 10yr old stepson, Aiden, to swim club. There are about 100 kids swimming laps up and down the pool, perfecting every stroke. Every Wednesday afternoon, I walk upstairs to meet the other parents who faithfully support their kids swim commitment. There is stadium seating along the entire length of the pool. And every Wednesday, I make my way down half the length of the stadium to find a comfy spot against the wall. That location is directly in front of the lane Aiden swims. I don't usually pay much attention to the parents as I cross in front of them.
One day, for no particular reason, God told me to look at the parents' faces as I make way to the usual spot. What I saw shook me at my soul. And it had nothing to do with the dewiness or dryness of their skin. It had nothing to do with how many expression lines or pimples they have. I saw faces of exhaustion. Faces of sadness. Faces of hopelessness. Faces of desperation for better. Faces that pleaded to turn back the hands of time. I immediately said in my heart, I want to give each one a facial treatment. I know they would feel better if I had an hour with them, to relieve some of their stress, to give them an hour to not think of the growing To-Do list, to give them an hour without having little swimmers ask them for anything. They would feel energized and revitalized to go back to the life they created for themselves. They may have a little more joy, a little more freedom, a little more peace in their life if I could give them a facial treatment.
Maybe I can open a treatment room close by to love on these parents. Haa!! Well, like I have time in my schedule to open another treatment room in Beaverton! But that is where my heart is.
Then I realized, I don't talk about this important piece of my facial treatments. Sure, I can help solve your depleting collagen production and clear your blackheads without thinking but how do I talk about the intangibles? The reason for you to meet me in the treatment room might be significantly different than why your best friend will.
Your skin is a mirror of your health. It is time to start to consider your whole body wellness to increase the fullness and longevity of your life. This is why I created the Olalani Healing Facial. I want to address your stress levels, your energy levels, the little pains nagging at you. I want to give you a safe space to re-energize and renew.
And so I welcome you to schedule an Olalani Healing Facial. I look forward to meeting you where you are at today.
