“I’ve always been a big believer in energy levels,” agrees the New York star facialist Georgia Louise, whose treatments have become equally renowned for their devotees (Emma Stone, Linda Evangelista), as their mystic touch. In her Art Deco–appointed spa (“I wanted to create something that wasn’t hippie-fied, but quite cool”), she performs Lift and Sculpt facials, which combine state-of-the-art micro-current and LED technology with relaxation and healing techniques including Reiki, acupressure, meditational breathing, manipulating the solar plexus (a web of nerves behind the abdomen considered a gateway to a chakra—an energy center of the body, per yogic and Hinduism traditions), as well as humming chakra bowls, brought to the “same vibration of the earth.” To drain puffiness and smooth lines and wrinkles, Louise conducts a 20-minute facial massage with a rose quartz stone fashioned into a butterfly, clearing negative and stagnant energy in the face and facilitating enzyme release and drainage. Rose quartz, she explains, opens the heart chakra, and since Egyptian times has been considered a formidable antiaging remedy. Which probably explains why Miranda Kerr reportedly had it around the lab of her Kora Organics line in Australia. The products, Kerr noted, were infused with good intentions.
