Meet Victoria

IMG_2467

Meet Victoria, she is a licensed Master Aesthetician. I was born and raised in this gorgeous valley, which makes me so excited to be a part of Crystal Joy’s dream to bring Heber Valley a one of a kind wellness center.

When trying to decide which career path, there was one thing I knew I wanted to do, and that was to help others. After two years of traditional university and after surviving a traumatic assault I ended up leaving school. The next year of my life was spent healing and learning to love myself again. I knew because of what I experienced I could help others but I never thought it would be through aesthetics. That’s when my journey to becoming a master aesthetician began! From my first day at the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics, I knew I had finally found my place in this world. I was meant to help others not only feel loved and accepted but to feel confident & beautiful in their own skin. I absolutely fell in love with aesthetics and knew it was my passion.

After graduating I married the love of my life in the fields of Midway and have been able share with him my love for travel and the healing remedies of the ocean. My goal with each of my clients is to listen and give each client a personalized treatment depending on their wants and needs. I’m a firm believer that facials are just as much about the experience as they are about the actual treatment. I want to create a safe, relaxing space that my clients can escape from their busy lives and let go while they’re with me.

About Massage

Massage is one of the oldest healing treatments used by man as far back as 3,000 years ago. Smooth, rhythmic strokes and kneading of the body’s tissues increases circulation to the muscles and cells. This cleansing and stimulation of the tissue also releases toxins and helps to improve energy flow and healing throughout the body.

Benefits of Massage

Massage can relieve symptoms of fatigue, reduces tension, loosen tight muscles, increase flexibility and range of motion, calm the nervous system, and promote a sense of relaxation and renewed energy. It has also been known to diminish chronic pain, lower blood pressure, and lower heart rate. Massage can be used in conjunction with many therapies, both physical and emotional.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Do people fall asleep?

This is your time from start to finish, so if you would like to sleep, feel free to rest! If you would like to talk, that is acceptable as well. Some people are more comfortable talking and others prefer silence–either way is the right way.

What should I eat before?

It’s better to have a light meal and plenty of water before your massage. If you schedule a session with any type of work where it’s preferred to come on an empty stomach, your therapist will discuss that prior to your visit.

can I drink alcohol after?

Yes, however we strongly suggest waiting. It is always recommended you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water afterwards, this helps in flushing out toxins released during the session.

Is it normal to become emotional?

Through massage therapy it’s possible to experience sudden emotions such as happiness, sadness, anger, confusion, anxiety. Just remember you are in a safe place, and let your therapist know if it becomes overwhelming. This type of response to massage may happen during any session, but it’s more common to when a client is receiving more frequent and deeper work.

Once again, these sessions are about you, and only you – so take whatever time is needed and breathe.

What to Expect in your massage session.

Your therapist will leave the room while you get ready for your session. You undress to whatever you are most comfortable in. Some prefer to be fully disrobed, while many leave on underwear.  Women usually remove their bra to allow the therapist to work on the back and shoulder area without getting massage oil or lotion on the bra. You will always be draped modestly under a sheet and blanket, and the therapist uncovers only the area to be worked on.  Although not ideal, it is usually possible to work on areas through clothing and/or sheets. Your therapist can talk to you about options if you have any concerns.

how do you know what type of massage that you need?

You can discuss that while making your appointment, and when you arrive your therapist will also discuss what your needs are for each session to decide what type of work to do. Always let your therapist know what kind of pressure you would like before a session. They will check in to make sure you’re comfortable with the pressure, temperature, etc.  Some types of deeper work can be more uncomfortable, and it’s extremely important to communicate with your therapist to avoid possible injury. Be aware that deep tissue work can be contraindicated for some medical conditions or medications. Please be sure your health history is updated and complete each session.

Can I have a massage if I'm pregnant?

Generally, yes. Mountain Elite has both options for side lying or lying prone depending on the condition of the individual during their pregnancy.

However, deep tissue work during pregnancy is contraindicated, as is work around certain pressure points on the ankle and foot. Lighter pressure must be used around the lower back and hip areas for safety.

When filling out the client intake form, you may specify if you have any questions or concerns beforehand.
