Meet Woodside (Kristen Blow)

Kristen Blow is Woodside Holistic Skin Therapies. Founding and embodying this space where universal energies lie. Where she has roamed and grown. Here the first step began, with discovering a love of the unique importance of the skin and how it behaves. She experimented with oils exclusively from plants, herbs and healing minerals that nature offers.

Her intuition for a holistic approach led to exploration and certification in the complementary disciplines of Aromatherapy, Herbology, Holistic Skin Therapies, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Facial Reflexology.

She came to appreciate how vitality is weaved by the mind, body and spirit and captured by your skin. This most important organ best reflects our essential health.

Kristen’s wish is for you to walk away feeling wholly replenished, with a new awareness of the skin, to appreciate what it needs and reflects. To leave naturally luminous, empowered to begin your own skincare journey.
