• Madalyn "May" Hethcote - Owner, Holistic Esthetician + Massage Therapist

    My passion for beauty and wellness started from a young age. I enjoyed the creativity of makeup, I tried thousands of products on the market to treat my acne prone and eczema ridden skin. I took a deep dive into my health after my dad passed away from cancer and I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer myself.

    After high school I attended the Denver School of Botanical and Medical Esthetics. I quickly fell in love with the spa industry and wanted to treat the skin more than just the face. I knew most skin conditions had underlying causes or triggers that went beyond treating the skin alone. I attended school at Higher Elevation Healing Arts to become a massage therapist as well.

    Since then I've found products and treatments that have helped me along my health and wellness journey and I couldn't be more thankful for that I get to share that with the world.

    In the treatment room I aim to guide everyone on their own wellness journey. I truly want everyone to be able to feel their most beautiful self, their most healed and taken care of self, their most well self.

    I chose the name Bhava because it means a state of peace or bliss and I want everyone to feel that when they come here. When they trust us with their health.

    It may have taken me years to find products that are safe and clean without compromising performance or luxury. Sunscreen that isn’t white and chalky, deodorant that actually works, makeup that covers a blemish, shampoo that doesn’t smell like apple cider vinegar- free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, endocrine disruptors or other toxic chemicals, and were not tested on animals. I promise you don't have to give up your favorite products, we’ve found a safer alternative.

    I hope you find your state of peace here at Bhava, just like I have.

    Whitney discovered the world of holistic beauty and wellness in her early 20's and ever since has wanted to keep learning more about it and sharing that with others. She truly believes that our skin and bodies are a precious vessel that are meant to be taken care of in the most natural ways.

    Your skin is a direct reflection of what is going on inside your body and she wants people to be informed on that. With experience in organic natural skincare and esthetics, she wants to share the gift of their transformative power.

    She wants to introduce therapeutic touch to people's lives and get to the root of their concerns, while also helping them feel like their most beautiful self. She wants others to know that the power of touch in esthetics is an incredible thing, and how it delivers major health and beauty benefits beyond the skin.

    She wants others to have a chance to connect to and heal their bodies from the inside out, and she wants to be the one supporting them alongside their journey.

  • Olivia Holzhauer - Holistic Esthetician & Body Sugarer

    Hi, My name is Olivia and I am a new face in the esthetics world. I recently moved to Vail, CO because of my passion for the outdoors and skiing.  My journey into this field sparked from personal skin issues I no longer wanted to have and my passion for makeup. I love this industry because it's a field where creativity thrives and I can share my passion for skin care with others to make them feel beautiful. I graduated from Paul Mitchell the School and now specialize in facials and sugar waxing. Although I am new to the industry and have a lot to learn I have found that I care most about clean beauty and holistic skin care. My goal is to provide skin care services and educate and empower individuals to care for their skin. I’m excited to take off on this journey of growth, providing the best service possible to not only enhance the beauty of others but also nourish the soul, encouraging inner well-being and outer radiance.
