Life Coach and Esthetician Alexis Brown

Life Coach Alexis Brown began her career as a histologist — a medical scientist who prepares, examines, and tests samples and specimens from humans, animals, and plants. The work they do can help diagnose diseases or discover abnormalities within samples.

“I love data and facts, and am also fascinated with scientific research about the mind/body connection,” says the Pennsylvania native who, in her early 20s, developed a passion for examining how the subconscious profoundly affects the overall quality of life. She moved to New Mexico, where she received her license as an esthetician. Soon after graduating, Alexis opened a day spa and wellness center in Albuquerque, offering skin care, massage, meditation, and workshops.

“The more work I did on my clients, the more compelled I was to learn the subtle energies of the body,” Alexis shares. This desire led her to integrate the ancient techniques of Ayurveda into her skincare offerings — a natural system of medicine that originated in India more than 3000 years ago. “The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words Ayur (life) and Veda (science or knowledge). Thus Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life. It is based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person’s consciousness Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.”

Additional training: To expand her practice, Alexis interned with Dr. J Dunn, the originator of Wholistic Kinesiology®, then got certified in Emotionally Freedom Technique (EFT), a mind-body method of tapping acupuncture points (acupoints) on the hands, face, and body with your fingertips while focusing on an issue or feeling you’re hoping to resolve. “This method may reduce stress and anxiety, improve performance, lessen cravings, and help resolve fears,” Alexis explains.

She then added the meditation technique of theta healing and memory recoding to her transformational coaching services. “Together, these healing techniques offer powerful opportunities to bring together the body, mind, and spirit.”

In June 2023, Alexis began offering her services to customers at the beach’s iconic 30-year-old salon and spa, Bad Hair Day. “While there is always more to learn, I believe I have mastered the art of body, mind, and spirit practice. It is my honor to bring this work to clients in my new home of Rehoboth Beach, DE.”

Alexis’ specialty: the Ayurveda Facial. “This facial is a beautiful blend of an ancient practice with modern-day products,” she explains. “It targets the face, neck, shoulders, and feet to draw out heat, acidity, inflammation, and toxins from the skin and body. It is deeply relaxing, as it works with the subtle electric fields that run in the collagen layer and facia, supporting good tone and vibrancy of the skin, and giving you a lasting healthy glow.”
