MY STORY

A Woman-Owned Business Built for Bettering Women's Lives

Hello. Shalom. Welcome.  I am so happy to share this personal and very meaningful section of my site with you.  Picking your aesthetician shouldn't be about what you judge from a picture, but about what you can sense from my personal story.  A story is definitely something I have! Making a connection through words is the first impression I try to take advantage of in all walks of life.  I would love to get to know you on a personal level, so let this bio bring you some insight to who I am and how much I value this journey. Take a seat!

- Jodi, Owner

ABOUT HEALING HAMSA 

Who am I?  

Jodi Bitton ~ Pronounced (BEETONE) everyone asks!

Wife, Mother, SKIN MAGICIAN!

Absolutely hilarious and there is no denying it!

 Monday-Sunday low maintenance.

Obsessed with Robes, Pajamas, and matching lounge wear.

Never ever forgets sunscreen or sunglasses. 

Might get cranky if you come to me with a sunburn, just ask my nieces.

I have been an esthetician 11 years and I consider myself the expert not instagram.

My lips are real and so is my story.  

My forehead moves and has some wrinkles.  

I occasionally get a pimple.

 I am unique and I will take that any day over regular or predictable.  

You will win my heart by just being yourself.  

Although my confidence can be misconstrued, I rarely look like my head shot.  

If and when I wear makeup, make sure you also take a picture. 

I keep it all natural most days and find that is when I feel the most like myself.  

Sunscreen is my signature scent.

I am human and I have feelings.

 

As far as business, I have been through it all. Some day I will write a book.  

 

I have worked hard, played hard, and lost big.  I have always been a dreamer. I constantly work to evolve and reach my goals. I am always up to something.  Learning is just something I can't go without.  Sometimes learning can be unpleasant.  

Learning of people's true colors.  Learning your vulnerability can be taken advantage of.  Learning that something sacred can be tainted if you let it.  Learning that you and only YOU can make your dreams a reality.  Nobody else.  It's all part of the journey I suppose.  We must learn hard lessons to evolve. I wouldn't trade any of it.  

I was the first person to launch a mobile spa and it failed miserably.  You've wanted to ask.  Lots of you did, but this is as detailed as it's going to get.  I had a wonderful idea, but it just plain and simply didn't work out.  What I learned from this was a monumental stepping stone to my journey today.  These are the lessons that we all must go through to learn how to be the best version of who we are and what we are meant for. There are plenty more lessons I have learned along the way.  Without that experience, I would have never been where I am today.  Flying Solo.  That is exactly what I am meant to do.  FLY. 

I learned the very foundation for what I wanted to do from early days of working in a critical care setting. I loved caring for others, nurturing those in need, and dealing a great deal with severe burns and skin ulcers.  Those days in the hospital taught me so much and I am so thankful I had those 8 years to really find myself and what I wanted.  I found the path to Esthetics through many hard night shifts. I am a walking-talking medical dictionary.  I always thought my journey was to be a nurse.  Maybe some day I will add that to my list of things to accomplish.  I was pretty close!  

God had other plans for me.  This path and amazing journey is exactly where I should be.  I am incredibly thankful for that every single day.  

I truly 100% believe the universe is our guide.  Just don't be too stubborn to listen.

My words of wisdom and mantra?  Nobody will ever care about something you've built as much as you do!  The best person to be accountable to at the end of the day is YOU.  Say it one time, say it a million!  If you would have told me a year ago I would be where I am today I would have believed you.  That isn't a typo.  I read the room.  I know good from bad.  I know when your energy doesn't align it's a warning sign.  When you feel wrong in your gut, you should listen to it.  Those feelings are real.  This advice pertains to all walks of life. The people you least expect will disappoint you the most. It's best you always learn to trust your gut before ever trusting someone else.  

If it feels wrong, so long!  For those lost in the journey, I wish you well and will always be here to empower you!    God brings us together for the learning, the loving, and the leaving. Just don't ignore the signs when it's time to exit. As they say, BYE Felicia.  Don't look back.  The bad things are behind you for a reason.  You truly have no idea what this business has taught me about life.  It's all relative and I take a piece of all of these experiences with me in every thing I do.  I will be forever proud of what I built and the relationships I have made along the way.  They have kept me humble and helped me through some very dark times.  I thank GOD that plans don't work out sometimes and I am here today telling my story of perseverance, defiance against the odds, and endless devotion to what I BUILT AND CREATED.  It starts and ends with my hard work and always will.  This business may have gone through some changes, but my clients have always been a constant in my life.  This journey has shaped who I am and what I can offer the world. You're not just my client, you're part of my story. This business is my family and how I provide for it. I am thankful every day for each and every person that I get the pleasure of sharing my gifts with.  

My hands or hamsas if you will, were made for healing and they come with quite a lot of practice.  

Thank you for making the choice to stay here, read this, and explore my story.  It's personal, but soon enough we will be too.

I simply can't wait to meet you. 

WHAT DOES HAMSA MEAN?

A hamsa is a dated emulet to provide the owner with protection from evil and is a sign of feminine power.  The hamsa hand opens you up to the abundance and goodness of all the universe has to offer.  It brings luck, manifestations, and success.  The eye is a shield of bad energy and prevents the negative influence of the world to infect your visions.

 

The hamsa is particularly appropriate in my profession because my hands are how I share my talents and touch each one of your lives both physically and emotionally. 

 

The energy that goes into people through my services is tangible and very relevant. It's healing in all ways. It's forever meaningful to have such a powerful name to symbolize who and what I stand for. 

“Always be a beacon of light and bring happiness to those who surround you, the hamsa will protect you against the rest.” – Unknown
