Ann received her license in 2012 and immediately opened her own spa, Bellovolo Day Spa in Seneca Falls, NY. She enjoys giving facials, body treatments, and working with Reiki energy. She is certified for Reiki Level Two for relaxation and well-being, and Raindrop Therapy for inflammation and muscle tension. Ann would love to meet and talk to you about your skin care and other beauty needs, as well as how deep breathing and meditation can bring beauty up from within.
Ann recently moved to North Carolina from upstate New York with her boyfriend, Steven. She is the mother of three grown men, Myles, Sam, and James; and one old pit bull named Moxie. She spends her time hiking, traveling, and making art with rocks she collects from local streams. Ann also has devoted time in several retreat communities across the country such as the Omega Institute in Reinbeck, NY and Spirit Rock in San Francisco, CA, studying the art of energies and how to bring peace and balance into one’s life.
Susan Barscheski - Licensed Esthetician
Susan grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and has been working in makeup artistry and studying skin care ingredients professionally since 2003. She graduated from the International School of Beauty and Esthetique in Honolulu, Hawai’i in 2004. Since then, nurturing skin has become an obsession for her, and passing knowledge on to clients is how she fuels her passion for the job. As part of a family that moved frequently, she was able to treat skin all over the world…Oahu, California, DC, and back home to North Carolina in 2015. In her free time, she customizes handmade hula hoops and plays the mandolin. At Fusions Spa & Wellness, she makes it her mission to offer the best possible skin care, reflexology, and makeup services.
A self-proclaimed “ingredient nerd,” Susan uses her own brand of “Education Therapy” as part of a holistic approach to help clients find the results they are after. Susan’s philosophy is that solutions come from analyzing not only what techniques, ingredients, or concoctions will improve your skin care, but also evaluating and addressing the cause of the skin’s inflammation or pigmentation, and what treatments or routine changes will suit your specific needs and challenges.
