I am dedicated to helping you learn to protect your skin and stop further damage. My goal is to find solutions that fit your lifestyle and accomplish your aesthetic and wellness goals.
Growing up in Houston, Texas I worked hard through college, mostly in restaurants, but always wondered what life was like outside my big, beautiful state. Feeling restless, I sold everything I owned and moved to Costa Rica in 2002 where I lived on the Nicoya Peninsula for 2 years. After being involved in a serious motorcycle accident, I began physical therapy, weekly yoga classes and receiving regular massage. I discovered the benefits of massage were more than just feeling good. The scar tissue on my leg began to diminish so quickly and I knew it was something I wanted to incorporate into my life regularly. I came back to the United States and researched massage schools, Utah College of Massage Therapy was at the top of the list.
After studying massage in Salt Lake City for a year, I ventured to The Lowcountry to visit one of my brothers. The moment I saw the sunset over the marsh, I knew I was home. I packed up a truck and headed to Charleston in 2005. I began working at a downtown spa almost immediately and loved treating clients from athletes with injuries to those in need of a relaxing massage. After one year, my interest in skin care piqued when I began to have issues with my own skin. I studied at Trident Technical College in 2007 and became licensed by the end of the year.
Skin Help Studio opened in 2012 and I have treated many skin types and conditions, from acne and sensitive skin to those with concerns of aging with sun spots and wrinkles. My goal is to help alleviate these issues with quality products and the knowledge of how to care for these issues with gentle but effective treatments. I love getting to know my Mount Pleasant and Charleston neighbors by helping them learn about prevention, protection and reducing inflammation. And as a mother, I understand the time constrains for some. I keep my home care regimen simple but effective.
I am committed to my own continued education of products, techniques and the latest peels. I attend conferences annually from our local Carolinas to regional conferences across the United States. As part of my experience, I’ve been honored to treat to the Olympic speed skating team in 2005 with sports massage pre and post event.
Rhonda Allison Skin Care is my favorite product line because they use only pure, fresh, natural, quality-driven ingredients that deliver results with no dyes, artificial coloring, or artificial fragrances – essential oils and the scent of the plant extracts are the aroma of the product. All preservatives are essential oils, plant derived, or safe FDA approved ingredients.
