Congratulations to Zen Salon and Spa!

We had an absolutely fun time meeting the team at Zen Salon & Spa in Iowa City at today’s Lunch and Learn.

Listen these guys get healthy hair and skin care - organic and environmentally conscious.

Plus they had some natural treatment called the Aveda Grey Blend that yours truly will definitely be taking advantage of 🙂

Thank you to @amanda.pacha for entering (and winning for your whole business!) and the whole team at Zen for inviting us and letting us share the message of true health and wellness.

Plus we got to discuss the EPIC Five optimum health plan and three easy and free hacks to take control of energy, focus, and productivity.

Sometimes I can’t believe my job is just having fun and sharing how to be healthy. I’m blessed ❤️


Zen Salon & Spa in downtown Iowa City will renew your spirit, soothe your soul, and energize your body.

Operating as usual


Help us wish a 𝕙𝕒𝕡𝕡𝕪 𝕒𝕟𝕟𝕚𝕧𝕖𝕣𝕤𝕒𝕣𝕪 to one of our estheticians, Sam! She's been with Zen for 𝟙𝟞 𝕪𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕤 now! ❤
