ASHERS SPARKLING RECOMMENDATION:
I’d recommend taking the time to get a nice treatment and getting it on a day that you can fully relax and allow the treatment to carry you throughout the day; not on a day where you have lots of work, or tension. When you come to SPARK you get this amazing relaxed environment and it’s important that you take it with you when you leave.

DESCRIBE YOUR PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH TO CLIENTS OF SPARK body & soul?
At SPARK we believe that regular skincare and massage are part of a healthy lifestyle.  We love and believe in what we do. The ambience at SPARK is sensitive to the mind, body, heart, spirit and soul.  I’m fortunate to work together with Asher, my husband and co-founder, who is a master massage therapist. We give 100% of what we would want to receive in a treatment.  We listen to clients. We build a connection. We educate our clients on their specific issues. We enjoy and cherish one-of-one time with clients. We look forward to meeting your SPARK!
 
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “ NATURAL SKINCARE PRODUCTS FORMULATOR”?
I am passionate about healthy cosmetic products.  I was recently looking through my senior high school yearbook, at a fun “In 10 years from now” page.  I was dubbed most likely to have my own perfume line. After moving to Israel and starting SPARK, I was looking for a product line that shared my motto: if you can’t eat it, why is our skin eating it?  As it takes a mere 26 seconds for what is put on our skin to absorb into our bloodstream. I wasn’t successful in finding a product line that I felt met my criteria. So this was my chance, the door was wide open for me to follow one of my dreams and create a gentle, loving and effective skincare product line from ingredients found in my kitchen.  I continue to experiment, create and fine tune formulations. Experience the SPARK!
 
IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE WORKING AT SPARK body & soul IN 3 WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Growth, dedication, SPARKling.
 
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WORKING AT SPARK body & soul?
I love watching the transition of my clients from before the treatment to after the treatment.  I love it when clients look better and feel better about themselves after treatment. We all hold so much tension and stagnant energy in our face muscles. These muscles are constantly working.  A facial is a time for self care and self love. After the treatment I expect a noticeable change in how clients experience their skin and appreciate their appearance. There are few skin conditions without an existing cure or remedy.  During every treatment I thank G-d for choosing me to be His vessel in this healing process, and to guide my hands, and I appreciate the willingness of my clients to trust me in this intimate work.
 
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
Have fun with Asher!  Practice yoga, pilates and cardio workouts.  Put my creative mind wheels on. Laugh with friends. Hike and be out in nature.  Sprout & dehydrate.  
 
RUTHIES SPARKLING RECOMMENDATION:
Hey you.  Yes YOU. You are exactly where you need to be!  Be patient with yourself. Be proud of this moment; appreciate your curiosity and desire seek out ways to grow in optimal health.  That’s a huge first step! Pause. Close your eyes, take a big inhale in (maybe allow a smile on your face) and deep exhale out. Move your neck side to side and shake out your body.  Look at yourself in the mirror with calm eyes and a smile on your face, and practice positive affirmations. If you’re having skin trouble know that it is temporary.  If you’ve been struggling, seen doctors, tried all the products out there… Trust it’s temporary.  I know it’s hard to look in the mirror and see imperfect skin. You are not alone. Please don’t be hard on yourself.  We’ve all seen those before and after pictures of people who go to the gym and after six months they begin to see results, and after 12 months there is a significant change, and after 24 months they are a completely transformed person. Skincare and skin goals are the same. It takes commitment, time, patience, trust in the “trainer” (and yourself) and the right hydration and diet. After a specific routine is created just for you, and a daily practice is done, it pays off.  Results show and there is a new balanced you. Remember, you are exactly where you need to be. Please be patient with yourself.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT SPARK body & soul?
My favorite thing about working at SPARK body & soul is the energy I feel the moment I walk inside. I immediately have a sense of calmness and serenity, with the right energy to give my clients my best effort, and to transmit  that energy through my touch. I love that I get an opportunity to connect with strangers, make them my friends, and help them both physically and mentally.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE WORKING AT SPARK body & soul IN THREE WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Relaxed, fun and personal.

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOB AT SPARK body & soul TO OTHER PEOPLE?
I work at a place where every client feels at home, where each client is attended to with personal discretion and attention. Asher and Ruthie treat their clients like old friends and I think that’s why people love coming.  I can personally testify the treatments are sensational!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
I love reading, reading and acting out books with my young son, exercising, and hanging out with friends.

SHLOMTZIONS SPARKLING RECOMMENDATION:
First off, take care of yourself! No one can do that for you, so take the time to ensure you’re feeling good physically, and it’ll do wonders for your mental state. And most importantly… Don’t stress too much! When you feel overwhelmed and out of depth in a situation, stop worrying, breathe deeply, and remind yourself that you’re not in control – as much as you’d like to be. Sometimes we just have to throw up our hands, give credit to ourselves for doing our best, and leave the rest up to G-d.

Mimi

Licensed Skin Therapist/Aesthetician at SPARK body & soul

Offering: Facials, Microneedling, Face/Body Waxing & Body Treatments

Mimi graduated from Cortiva Institute of Esthetics passing state licensure exams in the State of Texas.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT SPARK body & soul?
SPARK’s philosophy is to approach skin care from a natural perspective. From the ingredients we use, to the facial massage we give, everything is intended to make you feel like you are glowing from inside and out. It is a unique approach to skin care that has such variety and adaptability.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE WORKING AT SPARK body & soul IN THREE WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Nature. Zen. Professional.

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOB AT SPARK body & soul TO OTHER PEOPLE?
My job as an Esthetician is to help improve the appearance and health of each client’s skin. Beyond that, my job is to give clients the tools to feel confident about their skin’s health. The environment at SPARK allows my clients to leave their stress at the door  knowing they are coming to a safe space of relaxation and self-health. Everyone has different skin care needs. I educate each client according to their unique needs.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
When I’m not working, I am spending time with my other half, and with friends. I am learning to cook. I also enjoy learning more about my field by watching videos and such. I am an artistic person so sometimes I draw or write.

MIMI’S SPARKLING RECOMMENDATION:

-Your skin care journey takes time. It’s important to give it the time it needs. You are lovely as you are.

-You may feel lovelier wherever the journey takes you. It’s a unique journey that is purely yours. It  is a process.

-Educating yourself about skin care and health is important. Know what ingredients you put on your skin. Some times less can be more. As someone who struggles with acne, putting every acne product I could find on my skin at once was not the best approach to caring for my skin. I learned later that it is about using what is right for me and my skin type, verses what the big companies say is right for all acne.

-Establish a daily routine and instead of viewing it as a chore, view it as “your time”. Your skin’s health is important because you are important.

Yael

Certified Massage Therapist at SPARK body & soul
Offering: Swedish, Deep Tissue and Remedial Sports Massage.

Yael graduated & received her certification in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage from Maayanot, Jerusalem. She also studied Body and Soul Health at Elima, Jerusalem.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT SPARK body & soul?
Definitely the overall energy, it begins with the place itself and the people that you work with, which automatically attracts the best customers.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE WORKING AT SPARK body & soul IN THREE WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Relaxing, rewarding and fun!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
I studied photography, and I  enjoy expressing my creative side.

YAEL’S SPARKLING RECOMMENDATION:
I can sincerely and enthusiastically recommend SPARK because before I worked there I was a client!

I think that there are many places that offer a good massage, and it works for them, but not many places can give you the full package deal of having the whole experience that comes with the massage.

The way that SPARK treats their clients makes each one feel as if they’re the only client that exists, and that their needs are the most important.

I think that the way to know if you found a good place is if your 10th treatment feels like your first treatment; I can definitely say that the 10th treatment at SPARK may even be better than the first.
