About Katherine Alamilla
What began with a lifelong passion for holistic skincare became Simply Skin. It is with great joy that I have integrated this practice into my work in restoring radiance and health to my clients’ skin. As a child, I was drawn to making natural concoctions in my mother’s kitchen, and during my time as an investment banker - in the corridors of New York's financial district - I found comfort in the simple act of returning to my kitchen and creating my own skincare products.
My passion of creating potions in my kitchen extends into my practice as the body oils and balms I use for holistic treatments I create using organic oils and medicinal plants in a beautiful infusion. The ingredients I use are free from parabens, synthetic fragrances, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and GMOs. To this end, I have partnered with Laurel Skin to bring 100% whole plant, organic skincare to my practice to use during facial treatments, and I am beyond excited to share their deliciousness with you!
"We will shine like gemstones in a crown catching all the color of the sun."
After the birth of my first child, I was forced to reckon with how unsatisfying my career path was. I decided to pursue my lifelong passion in esthetics in 2004 and a year later I graduated from massage school. Since then I have also furthered my education as a massage therapist in my study of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Prenatal Massage, and Sacred Stone Massage, and I am constantly searching for techniques to study and add to my practice.
I strive to utilize my knowledge and expertise to help my clients achieve results and improve their overall well-being. I am certified in natural methods and techniques for skin health and rejuvenation, including: Vodder Lymphatic Drainage for Face and Neck, Kundan Metha Facial Rejuvenation, Advanced Techniques in Facial Gua Sha, Facial Reflexology and LaStone Therapy.
During the pandemic I had the benefit of participating in a Clinical Herbalism course taught by Kat Maier of Sacred Plant Traditions. I am excited to incorporate some of what I have learned during this time in my sessions and continuing my education.
I look forward to crafting an authentic and holistic experience for you at Simply Skin.
