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.
Corinna’s Professional Training – Summary
Born and raised in Germany, Corinna moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1990. Her innate desire to constantly learn and improve herself led her to explore the holistic health field.
Corinna got her Massage Therapy Certification in 1991 at Alive & Well! Institute of Conscious Bodywork in San Anselmo, where she trained in many different modalities such as Deep Tissue, Myofascia Release Work, Sports Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Acupressure, and Cranial-Therapy.
She eventually became a well-sought-after teacher at Alive & Well!
Corinna also got certified in Reiki, as a Birth Doula, and a Dynamic Walking Coach. After 8 years in private practice as a Massage Therapist, Corinna went back to school in 2005 to the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology and fulfilled her long time dream of becoming a Licensed Esthetician.
She was also recognized at the 2017 Skin Games as the Best Holistic Esthetician in the Nation.
She is passionate about skin care and loves to educate her clients on properly taking care of their skin and helping them to understand why doing so is important. Her facial treatments are not only incredibly nurturing, but also extremely informative and holistic.
Liz Crocker, our new Esthetician has settled in nicely and is getting rave reviews from our clients!
Liz enjoys helping people to feel better about themselves and to be a participant on their journey of self-care and thus experience a boost in their self-confidence.
Liz is originally from the Santa Cruz area and got her training at the Wayne’s College of Beauty. She has been a Licensed Esthetician since 1998.
She later was trained by, and then worked under Dr. Lawrence Moy, head chief of dermatology at UCLA.
Liz offered microdermabrasion, clinical peels, and endermologie at Dr. Moy’s and Lesa Stock’s clinic Serious Skincare in the Santa Cruz area for 12 years.
She then owned and operated Fresh Skin, a skin care studio near Santa Cruz for several years.
Liz relocated to Marin in the spring of 2016 and started at Body Celebration in May 2017.
Liz is passionate about skincare and waxing and is our new waxing specialist!
In Liz’s words: “I love waxing, because it is instant gratification. Waxing for me is fun and I love that clients come in with hair that bugs them and, shortly after, leave happy with smooth skin.”
Liz is also a certified YUMI Lash Practitioner and offers amazing natural keratin treatments to lift your lashes at Body Celebration. The Yumi Lash lift is an amazing alternative to lash extensions and it is so much healthier for you and your lashes!
