Monika Rudnicka, a licensed Aesthetician since 2003, LMT since 2011, studied Aesthetics in New England, and massage therapy in Boulder, Colorado. Monika came to Nantucket in 2008 to work for the White Elephant Spa and later GHYC spa, five years later she opened the door to her own, now thriving private practice.
She believes in continuous education and takes classes any chance she gets, online and off. Monika also attends annual conferences on Skin Care and Wellness in NYC and in Miami, as well as the annual Integrative Medicine Symposium SIMPLE in NM.
She believes in synergy between our environment within and the one we live in, therefore does her best to steer her clients towards balance, through regular massage, custom facial treatments and sometimes lifestyle changes. She encourages daily habit and diet improvements, regular exercise and spiritual practice, which are also her own ongoing priorities. She uses her knowledge whenever possible to contribute to her client’s well-being, but is glad to recommend another practitioner when outside of her scope of practice.
