Lauren Moseley, R.T., Owner & Founder,
Salt Works Spa
Lauren has been working in the medical field as an X-ray technologist since 1996. Her love of learning and exploring Alternate Holistic approaches for overall health, disease prevention and well being brought her to launch Salt Works Spa. Lauren loves “purposeful care” – taking time to purposefully care for yourself – setting yourself up to succeed by placing yourself in the correct environment – taking that pause . . . that moment . . . to re-set and care for yourself, body and mind.
Lauren created Salt Works Spa to cater to everyone with the main goal to always provide affordable, pampering stress reduction. Stress is at an all time high and the connection between body and mind grows more evident everyday.
Eden Allio, Esthetician
An Esthetician as unique as her name, Eden has her own philosophy when it comes to facials, skin treatments and the latest esthetic trends. Her philosophy – treat the skin like you would a child. You wouldn’t overwhelm a child, ignore a child, leave your child dirty and if they were upset or agitated, you would calm them down, correct? Use gentle yet deep massaging techniques to relax and sooth the skin, nourish the skin with rich resources that are free of artificial ingredients, colors and scents, leaving your skin so that it is healthy, plump, gentle to the touch. Skin in many ways is like a child; children do not change or grow as individuals overnight and nor does the skin. Your skin will take time to evolve, let Eden help you in the process of evolving your skin to its highest level.
Eden’s background is in the Pharmaceutical Industry, but her passion has always been skincare. She specializes in treatments for acne and anti-aging. Eden is best known for her pampering one-of-a-kind facial massaging technique.
Jamie Thompson, Esthetician, CLT
While working as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and Occupational Therapy Practitioner, Jamie became aware of how quickly skin reflects what is happening to the body due to stress, environmental factors and chronic conditions. This awareness ultimately led to her becoming a licensed Esthetician with a holistic approach to skin care, incorporating non-invasive modalities like Reflexology and Manual Lymph Drainage into her practice. Jamie will work with you to optimize the condition and appearance of your skin through cleansing facials, anti-aging treatments and whole-body relaxation and stress reduction.
Marissa Restivo, Esthetician
Marissa is an Esthetician who obtained her license from the Von Lee International School of Aesthetics and began her career as an Esthetician in July 2005. Since then, she has attended many skin care courses and additional esthetics educational training. She is passionate about learning and eager to educate her clients on how to achieve and maintain beautiful skin. She believes strongly in a healthy diet and having a customized personal skin care regimen in place to let your inner beauty shine with healthy radiant glowing skin. We are happy to have Marissa here on Wednesday evening as she eases her way back into the Spa setting. She is a busy full-time homeschooling mom of 2 kids under 6. She will be picking up additional hours as she is able.
Emily Richardson, Massage Therapist, Level 3 Reiki Master
Emily is a graduate of the Holistic Massage Training Institute of Baltimore. Her passion, to provide help and love to all living things, has been a guiding force through her experience with massage. Emily intentionally creates a holistic massage treatment that will suit your specific needs since each body, mind, and soul is unique. In every session, she not only focuses on her clients’ ability to sink into deep relaxation, but for them to feel that their needs are heard, and for them to experience relief from any pain or tension in their bodies.
In 2018, Emily received her Level 3 Reiki Master Certification which catalyzed and accelerated her interest in working with the chakras and energetic healing. Her belief is that anything which manifests in the physical body has an energetic – emotional, mental/psychological, spiritual/karmic – origin of imbalance. Sometimes we must search beneath the surface to obtain true healing. Emily’s approach to massage and bodywork offers harmony and balance, to help ease your busy life.

Jen Welsch, RYT 500 Yoga Instructor
After practicing yoga on and off for nearly a decade, Jen found herself deepening her personal practice at Yoga Centric in 2016. Then a few months later, she enrolled in Yoga Centric’s first-ever Teaching Training — and there was no turning back!
At YC, Jen learned that yoga is for everybody and every body, including herself. Jen enjoys teaching yoga to all levels, especially beginners (just say yes to props and modifications!). And she loves restorative yoga — both teaching and practicing — because as a former TV newsroom journalist and marketing account executive, her mind and body are still recovering from living in a constant state of fight or flight!
Off the mat, she loves reading and listening to podcasts, going to the beach and hanging out with her husband, stepson and fur babies (one dog and three cats).
Jen now brings a bit of YC to Salt Works Spa with yoga in our salt room! Breath is such an important element in yoga. With Salt Therapy added to the class you are giving your breath, along with your entire respiratory system a healthy detox. It’s like enjoying Yoga at a salty beach!
