Katie Westgate – Founder/Esthetician
Weaving ancient and modern skin regeneration techniques, yogic lifestyle tips, and a passion for nutrition is how Katie Westgate, founder and lead esthetician at K.WEST approaches the healing journey each client begins when they walk in the door.
Healing the skin begins at the surface and is a catalyst for healing that extends through the body, mind and soul. Kathryn created K.WEST out of the desire to provide a beautiful sanctuary in which to return to wholeness through high vibe treatments, herbalism, energy and body work, yoga and community.
With nine years of experience as an esthetician in NYC and locally, and a graduate degree in experience design, Katie brings a highly attuned sensitivity to the experience of others. She is also a KRI certified Kundalini yoga instructor, and will be teacher at her studio, Shuniya at K.WEST, opening late 2019.
Samantha Gardner – Functional Nutrition Therapy Practitioner
Samantha Gardner and I’m a Functional Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, diet lifestyle interventionist and culinary wellness educator with over a decade of experience in holistic nutrition. It’s my passion to affect positive change in your health through preventative nutrition.
I’m certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association to conduct functional assessments in order to make nutritional recommendations that balance body chemistry. Using whole food and supplemental therapies we can address the root cause of most nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that could be preventing you from clearing inflammation, losing weight, balancing hormones, and getting and staying healthy.
What you can expect from me:
I will help you think critically about what you’re eating and how you’re managing stress so you can make informed choices that are life changing. I will NOT promote quick fixes. Nutritional therapy isn’t overly complicated, but change takes time. I will guide you with care and attention.
