Halle Jenkins

Instructor for the Face Lift Facial Massage with Yonka Class
My name is Halle Jenkins and I’m a Licensed Esthetician. I have a passion for skincare and enjoy helping people feel better with their skincare concerns. As we get older fine lines and wrinkles become more of a concern. With facial massage, you can improve elasticity and collagen production resulting in an overall lifted look!

Connie Oakes

Instructor for the Reflexology Class
My name is Connie Oakes and I am a Licensed Esthetician and Massage Therapist since 1990. I work part time at the spa and have my own private practice in Staunton. I have a degree in Biology Education from Asbury University. I enjoy teaching about the benefits of reflexology and how participants can learn techniques to use on themselves, friends, and family. Reflexology can be performed on the feet to improve nerve and lymph flow to all the major systems of the body. There are many practical benefits achieved through reflexology such as headache relief, calming the digestion, and improving the health of the feet and hands. Participants are also taught how to safely and effectively incorporate essential oils into their reflexology treatments. Each class makes their own take-home roller bottle of peppermint and lemongrass blend.

Jossif Gerhn

Instructor for the Couples Massage Class

My name is Jossif (JP) and I am a licensed Massage Therapist. I enjoy massaging people but I also enjoy being able to share my passion for massage with others and help them to self heal and teach them to massage on there own time.
