Our Team


Owner of Nu Image Salon & Day Spa

Susanna is a licensed massage therapist and has been a scholar and follower of alternative holistic approaches to self care, beauty and wellbeing for the past 16 years. Inspired by the power of the alternative healing systems, she studied Classical Homeopathy in New York and various systems of healing including Herbology and Ayurvedic Medicine in California.

To compliment her holistic education, Susanna studied Bodywork modalities and its therapeutic properties. Susanna’s passion is to share her philosophy with others in that fundamental principle of true healing and wellbeing consists of return to natural habits of living, free of biochemical harmful side effects, to obtain and maintain balance in the energies of the human body. So as Aveda’s earliest roots lie in Ayurveda, the India’s healing tradition based on the knowledge of life and the interconnectedness of all things, the effect of Aveda products considered not only on hair or skin, but on body mind and emotion.
