Japanese facial salon in nyc
History

A bit about the owner

Since 2007, I had dreamed to open a salon in a small Caribbean island that was known as a secret island back then.

A salon overlooking the ocean and some neighboring small islands

That has a small organic cafe on the side that offers healthy gluten free sweets and herbal teas,

and a little boutique that carries one of a kind clothing and accessories, hand made jewelries with healing gem stones from the world.

And I'd offer slow and relaxing spa treatments that only use fresh natural sustainable ingredients from the island. 

Growing up, I come to realize that I am severely allergic to chemicals. Countless episode of passing out with bubbles out of mouth after taking  over the counter medications like pain killers and cold medicines made me eventually start exploring natural alternatives to aid ailments. 

I studied and got trained in NY, India and Japan for all different techniques and philosophies from medical doctors and naturopathic doctors to shaman and energy healers. 

Due to some natural disasters hit Caribbean in 2017, my plan was no longer feasible on the island at the point and I ended up opening Puresthetique on Fifth Avenue in NYC in 2018. 

Our menu consists of slow relaxing treatments that were originally created with the beautiful turquoise ocean in the background in my mind.

 

And that is probably why when people walk into the salon, immediately feel drifted from the reality of being in the middle of Manhattan.

Before all these, I have a degree in child education from Otsuma women's University in Japan.

Worked at a local elementary school as a swimming teacher in summer(I was a competitive swimmer as a junior).

Upon graduation, I landed at Apple computer Japan when the company just launched in Japan while Steve Jobs was working at his new company Next in 1987-89.

My dream back then was to study art and design in London, but people at Apple suggested to go to NY instead and insisted that I would do good in NY and helped me prepare to apply for schools, so that's how I came here in 1989. 

I attended Fashion Institute of Technology for 5 years while I was also involved in underground house scene as a show dancer in the early 90's. 

Greatly influenced by the world renowned artists and designers and multi talents I met throughout those days, I shifted my interest to fashion and worked as a buying merchandiser to eventually a creative consultant for some international department stores and apparel trading companies including Saks Fifth Avenue between 1995 and 2004.

Meanwhile I was battling with my underlying depression from losing my family, parents and husband for nearly 10 years.

I stumbled a bit with fashion business after that, and with my secretary background from Apple, I worked at Lehman Brothers as secretary to CFO briefly but couldn't give up on fashion then moved onto textile designs.

Still hangin in the fashion industry as a freelance consultant for Japanese companies, unstable and stressed out, a friend took me to Caribbean in early 2007.

Hardly ever traveled for pleasure besides a massive business trips until then, I started to travel since and began to learn about Mind, Body, Soul and Beauty. .
