Emily Magee
Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner and Certified Nutrition Specialist

Emily Magee is a Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner and Certified Nutrition Specialist.

After her own healing journey, Emily had become very passionate about nutrition and integrative wellness, so she decided to go back to school to obtain her Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health. During this time, she experienced firsthand the power and effectiveness of Nutrition Response Testing, which is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health. As a result of her overall improved health, in 2017, Emily completed her professional level training in Nutrition Response Testing in addition to earning her Masters in Clinical Nutrition and Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) certificate.

Emily is passionate about educating her community about nutrition so that they may gain control of their health and heal their bodies through natural means without unnecessary interventions. In addition, Emily is also certified to teach childbirth education.

Samantha Thorn

As someone who used to struggle with acne and skin sensitivity, I became interested in the science of esthetics and furthered my education in skincare. After attending the New York Institute of Beauty, I received my esthetician license in 2019. As a professional esthetician, I am passionate about helping people with their skin concerns and customizing treatments to meet their individual needs. I am results driven and by applying my extensive knowledge, I have helped our clients achieve their skin care goals. I believe in not only helping men and women maintain their personal appearances, but also in educating our clients on products and ingredients that fit their skin types and keep their skin healthy and flawless.
