We had the good fortune of connecting with Lauren Del valle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lauren, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Before starting my esthetician business I have always been Interested in skin care and the spa industry. As a child I even had a pretend spa in my house so its funny to see how I have reached full circle with my passion. For a while I was very lost on what I wanted to do as a career and where my passion truly lied. One day after quitting a bakery job that I felt miserable at I was pulled to go to esthetics school as it was the only thing I knew for a fact I liked at the time. After doing so it opened so many door for me. I felt happy doing this as a career and to be able to help people in this way, to they feel confident in themselves meant everything to me. Since obtaining my esthetician license I have branched out and expanded my services by going to a massage therapy school and in the future bringing in Acupunture. I want to help people in a more holistic and natural way. So why not do that from the inside and out. I always knew I wanted to help people, and after not liking the medical field in college I figured I can do it in my own way. And this is it, @healingbylauren. I have crafted my services to help people feel at ease with themselves and feel attuned to their life and bring in overall healing and wellness. Its just the beginning for my brand but I know much more is yet to come.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
To get to where I am today was not easy, in my line of work we have to be very attuned to our wellness and energy in order to help heal others. I have put in lots of work mentally and spiritually to be able to give my clients the upmost care. Its an everyday thing when working with energy and it can be draining if dealing with bigger issues at hand. I’ve learned that having a work-life balance is important especially since i am still furthering my education in Acupunture. What makes me different from others in my field is I don’t just want to help your external appearance. I want to help you as the whole that you are. Everything in our body is connected and there is not a beginning nor end. So if a problem arises in a certain area, it is much deeper than we think. That is why it think it is important to treat with a holistic approach. To treat the individual as a whole and not just the issues we see. Something I am excited for is the expansion of my services and brand. I have a lot more I am bringing to the table that is under wraps but I know its going to be grand and I can help so much more people which brings me peace and happiness. To know that I am doing what I can to help guide people and bring them that peace as well.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am a very adventurous person and I love nature and everything is has to offer.. some of my favorite spots are very different to what people come to miami for. There are lots of hidden gems. Such as the strawberry farms and the Patricia frost museum. Going there makes me feel calm in such a energetic city that never sleeps.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a big shout out to my teachers who have given me the information I need to succeed. As well as my longtime partner Rodney for making sure I never give up on my dreams and supporting me on my transformative journey.
