From Dr. Christine Schaffner
As a student and practitioner of naturopathic medicine, I have always been influenced by the European Med Spa and Klinik aesthetic and practice. In the traditional Med Spa environment and clinical settings, I see many treatments that can help resolve issues related to aging and toning the physique; however, these treatments often provide a temporary solution to an internal challenge that goes far beyond the surface of the skin. My personal and professional interests lie in beauty and health, but also the journey we take to get there. I am concerned with what we put on/in our bodies, how our bodies respond, and where are resources are coming from. At Bella Fiore™, we borrow this philosophy from our European counterparts.
We all age. We all face common issues like wrinkles, sagging skin, and cellulite; however, between science, nature, technology, and our very own bodies, we have the tools to self-repair and restore our vitality without having to suffer through harsh side effects often associated with conventional, more temporary treatments. The European methodology, much aligned with the principles of naturopathic medicine, utilize the body’s ability to self heal, along with wild-crafted ingredients and cutting-edge technology to produce real results.
Bella Fiore™ Med Spa and Klinik began as a passion project that has evolved over the course of my career due to my personal desire to create a space for total restoration—for both skin and body. My initiative has always been to host a space where patients see clinical results, but experience them in a warm, comfortable, and rejuvenating environment. At Bella Fiore™, beauty and health are interchangeable—they go hand in hand—and each service or treatment goes skin-deep, beyond the service to restore and heal. Importantly, we remove the sterile clinical aspect of healing and present a luxurious alternative that truly lends itself to rejuvenating the skin, the body, and mind—our whole being.
