Meet the Therapists
Corinna Joy Kavanagh, CMT, Licensed Esthetician, Owner
Thank you for visiting Body Celebration – Holistic Skin Care & Wellness
I feel so fortunate to have found a profession that I love and that allows me to truly make a difference in people’s lives. One of my deepest desires in life is to be of service by facilitating healing, growth and change.
My journey led me to a quest of self-discovery. In that process I met many brilliant teachers and discovered that the more I learned to take care of myself, the healthier the community around me became – I also discovered my gifts of healing, compassion and humor, all of which I bring to my work.
The lessons I learned taught me to celebrate my life and my body – and manifested in the creation of my business “Body Celebration”.
My dream is to live in a world where everyone is happy and well cared for. I believe that we have more to give to others when we take care of ourselves. I encourage you to take a step towards a healthier community by starting to take care of yourself.
Find out what it means to be deeply touched. Celebrate yourself and feel great in body, mind and skin!
I am looking forward to meeting you.
