Pamela J Groebner, Licensed Skincare Aesthetican
I started my mission several years ago after attending the Aveda Institute as a skin care aesthetician. Aveda Institue is regarded as one of the most respected esthetics schools in the United States. Passing my boards and receiving a License for esthetics has been a dream fulfilled. I study only skincare as it is very complicated and I truly want to help women understand their personal skin type through education and understanding their particular concerns and needs.
You can have healthy skin and really feel good about yourself. Working with a professional skincare aesthetician who focuses on skin will get you the results you are looking for.
I also believe in touch and music therapy. Massage for the face through different techniques from pressure point, lymphatic and detailed muscle massage for the face, neck and decolotte' are amazing treatments for you both physically and mentally. Having this desire to make a difference for people I knew this career choice was exactly the way I wanted to make a change.
After several years of seeing and listening to the benefits of my skincare treatments for my clients I knew more people needed to receive these treatments.
I wanted to know how I could incorporate skin care therapies for cancer patients. I found an extensive training program in Clinical Oncology Aesthetics and learned so much more about how this disease as well as other stresses played a part in skincare. We spent one of the days working with an oncology nurse who gave us the REAL insight as to what an individual going through this treatment and fighting this disease was and would be dealing with.I truly want every person dealing with this disease, every caregiver, every person out there who needs some time to release, to spend a little ME TIME. This is truly a time of healing in your heart and soul. I want to give them time to let go of their worries and find the inner strength to get up and face another day. When you have been touched, you then can touch someone else and smile.I have been blessed to work with many women, men and teenagers in this wonderful career and look forward to bringing smiles to many, many more faces and hearts!
At Home: I am married to a wonderful man for 30 years now, Bob. We have 2 boys and an amazing daughter in-law, Lisa. We enjoy music, traveling, biking and absolutely love restoring rooms and decorating!

Rebecca Padilla, Licensed Massage Therapist
I graduated from Globe University the summer of 2013 with my Associated Degree in Massage Therapy and I also hold my Wisconsin State License to practice Massage Therapy. My training and skills of massage include Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Therapy, Prenatal, Sports Massage Myofascial Release, Energy work and beginning knowledge of Lymphatic Drainage and Crainiosacral. I take pride in helping others as much as I can. I enjoy listening to my clients carefully about their problem areas and I am focused on treating those areas to reduce pain and tension as well as provide relaxation. One of my goals in my career as a Massage Therapist is to specialize in Lymphatic Drainage and specialize in Oncology for Massage Therapy, so that one day I can work with cancer patients to help them relax and take their worries and stress away, even if it's just temporary. I believe Massage Therapy is beneficial for everyone, no matter what age and should be used more often in treating or helping people with conditions that will allow it.

Christel Vanover, Licensed Massage
It has always been my dream job since I was a little girl to be a Massage Therapist. I always knew there was something about massage that drew me to it. I was right! Massage is a healing extraordinaire! The most important thing to me as a massage therapist is the client, of course, but on top of that, grounding and centering myself to that client and relaxing airs around me. That means their time with me is all about focusing on healing their body with a warming touch. I attended Globe University of Appleton and received my Assoicaties degree in Massage Therapy. My major interest in massage techniques are Thai Massage & Deep Tissue massage along with Swedish, Hot Stone, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, Cranical Sacral, Sports Massage, Therapeutic Stretches and Aromatherapy. I am very skilled and knowledgeable at what I do.
