Unique Verve specializes in providing a transformative — and results-oriented — experience through exceptional-quality corrective skincare and Functional Medicine services. Facial treatments at Unique Verve are both invigorating and soothing. Natalie has close to 20 years of experience in the wellness and skincare industry.
Natalie has always been fascinated by the skin’s histology and its intricacy. Natalie keeps herself at forefront of esthetic technique and technology by reading the most up to date medical journals as well as attending national skin care conferences, lectures, and training seminars. Natalie has been trained in the Pastiche Advanced Skin Analysis method.
She is very passionate about sharing her knowledge with her clients, which is one of the reasons she pioneered the concept of the First Time Facial in order to provide the most comprehensive approach in the treatment of any skin condition and type.
Her caring persona is reflected in the ambiance of Unique Verve, where every client is special. Natalie strives for excellence at all times. Her strong focus on sharing knowledge while emphasizing quality over quantity in a clean, relaxing environment makes for consistently providing the best facial experience possible. Natalie works with an eye towards peace and wellness and, most of all, tangible results. She listens carefully to provide the most fulfilling and reparative experience.
Beyond skincare, Natalie has advanced her education in the Functional Medicine. As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, she has completed a rigorous training at The School of Applied Functional Medicine which is an Accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) Provider. Functional Medicine dives deep and gets to the root causes of imbalances and dysfunctions in the body so they can be addressed and true transformation and wellbeing can occur.
Whether you are suffering from acne, eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, PMS, IBS, low thyroid function, poor memory, irritability, anxiety, hormonal imbalances or insomnia or any other symptoms/ dis-ease in the body, there is always a root cause as to WHY this particular or a collection of symptoms is happening in your body. Functional Medicine helps to address those root causes by looking at the interconnectedness of the systems and organs in the body. Functional Medicine treats a person as whole and always asks a question: “WHY?” There is always a reason as to why someone is experiencing rosacea, hormonal imbalances or other dis-ease dynamics in the body. It’s easy to use anti-biotic for the acne but there is no deficiency of anti-biotic in the body, so if you are really looking to heal your body, your skin, it is important to address actual root causes. Dis-ease, impairments and dysfunctions in the body don’t occur out of nowhere, ever! There is always a reason as to WHY it’s happening.
Natalie is the darling of local beauty editors with numerous awards heralding her outstanding work, and mentions in magazines including In Style , Allure, Boston Magazine, and the Improper Bostonian. In 2010, In Style Magazine named Natalie the “Best Facialist in Boston”. Other awards include “Boston’s Best Facial” in 2010 and 2009 by Improper Bostonian Magazine; “Best of Boston” in 2010 and 2009 by Boston Magazine.
Natalie also won Best Functional Medicine Practitioner in Boston Award 2022 by New World Report.
