Rita and her family came to Calabash from the Northeast region of the country 10 years ago and are happy to call Brunswick County “home”. When Rita first arrived in Calabash, she began a search to find a spa that provided massage and skin therapy services, but to her dismay, she found she had to travel to Myrtle Beach or Wilmington to indulge in those services. This prompted her to begin a study in esthetics in 2008 and found a school that incorporated the Dermalogica product line, having used their products herself for over 10 years. Now, a decade later, Rita calls Sacred Willow Spa her tome to provide esthetic services and has continued to use Dermalogica products for over 20 years because she truly believes in the results they deliver while being cost effective at the same time. Rita loves to educate clients about their skin health and how they can incorporate Dermalogica products into their at home skin care regimen of optimal results.
