Roxie Reece, Licensed Medical Aesthetician & Owner, Studio Rox
How do you define a healthy lifestyle?
I call it the “Bliss Point.” It’s the healthy balance within ourselves, inside out and in all areas — spiritually, mentally, physically. Keeping Christ and His love front and center is the ultimate key to foundational health and wellness inside out!
How did you come to practice in your career field?
I started as a second-grade teacher (learned the value of education), then I graduated as a reflexologist/massage therapist (learned the value of running my own business and creating a warm safe environment for my clients). Began to expand my business with essential oils and traveled Arizona teaching health and wellness classes (applied my educational knowledge to the business world).
At midnight one night, I decided to dive into aesthetics. It was clear in my heart it would be the most beautiful career that was all encompassing of all I had learned thus far.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SELF-CARE; WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO WAY OF PRACTICING IT?
Self-care starts with knowing our worth and value and loving ourselves. Each morning I pray and journal and enjoy some quiet time to set my focus for the day (reading encouraging Bible verses). Eating healthy (juicing, macros), staying active (weightlifting, walking, hiking), keeping that balance with my work schedule (prioritize my clients, 100% present) and my loved ones (quality time with friends and family), stepping toward future goals (identify my dreams, and a path to embrace them), and some self-care time for me and fun activities (drawing, dancing, cooking, etc.).
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST HEALTH, WELLNESS TIP?
Celery juice every morning! It all starts with a healthy gut (that is our second brain!).
WHAT IS YOUR NEXT GOAL IN YOUR HEALTH, WELLNESS JOURNEY?
