Established in 2007, Leaf & Water is one of the Nation's first truly holistic skincare spas.  We have become known as a leader in holistic skincare for knowledge, expertise and results.  Leaf & Water is sought out throughout the world, United States and the greater Seattle area by clients who have made Leaf & Water their spa of choice.

It all began with the idea that beautiful skin is healthy skin and that healthy skin is best achieved via natural methods.  By natural methods we mean customized holistic skin treatments, non-invasive technologies, manual therapies, natural skincare products, internal wellness and supplementation.  These methods address the long-term health of skin cells from the inside out and outside in.  And is why Leaf and Water's motto is "Skincare for your health".

Leaf and Water's method of holistically healing the skin begins by identifying internal and external root causes to skin problems and correcting them via customized clinical treatments, internal skin wellness and corrective homecare products.

By following Leaf and Water's complete regimen of healing holistic skin treatments and a personalized homecare regimen, our experience shows you can achieve the results you desire.  This includes significant and visible healing of acne, scarring, inflammation, sensitive skin, dry /  oily skin, hyper-pigmentation and cellular aging.

With Holly’s deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the skin and body, immune functions, technologies and skincare ingredients, Holly is able to create a customized facial experience and holistic homecare routine of products, diet and supplements that suits your needs and resolves your skin problems.  And because her talents and interests span far, she leaves no stone un-turned when it comes to the holistic skin care of her clients, which is how she ended up becoming the chief formulator of her Leaf & Water Skincare line, a relentless eight years in the making to develop skincare products that achieves impeccable results.
