DoshaCare Introduces Rachel Henry as our Head Educator

 Rachel first became part of our team when DoshaCare debuted at the Spa and Resort Expo last September at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. She came on board to perform facials on customers in the Show’s Spa Sanctuary, and quickly fell in love with the product.

“I was very impressed with the efficacy of the line, even when used in an environment such as a trade show.  I performed facial services in a small area with limited supplies, but even in that setting, I was able to achieve impressive results. In approximately 15 minutes, my clients’ skin was so greatly improved that they even looked better without the makeup they had walked in wearing.  Their skin was fresh, plump and glowing from a brief encounter with the products.  I’d like to note that I used no steamer or machines during the facials, only two gently warmed towels.  I also had no sink in the room in which I was working, which made me aware that many salons could perform comprehensive facials with DoshaCare without having the luxury of a sink.


The line was simplistic enough for me to breeze through each facial in a short time without having to decipher complex formulas or combinations of products.  I have worked with customized formulas and facial products before, but the amount of work needed to achieve good results with those products was far more tedious than that of the straightforward application of DoshaCare.  As each client left my room, I was continually surprised at the great results acquired with so little effort.” 

Rachel Henry graduated from Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics in New
York City in 1997, where she graduated with honors, including Superlative Hands. In
1999 Henry was recruited by Barbara Salamone, founder of Bioelements, and
became a national educator. During her tenure with Bioelements, Henry gained
a wealth of product knowledge, earned respect as an educator and became a
role model to young professionals. In 2000 as microdermabrasion was
exploding in the spa industry, Henry became the East Coast sales
representation for Dermaglow, a manufacturer of microdermabrasion machines.
Additionally, she became spa director at Spa Harmony at the W.R. Cameron Wellness

Center in Washington, Pennsylvania. It was in this holistic environment that Henry

developed newskills in lymphatic drainage and began custom-blending essential oils and
herbs for use in her treatments. Subsequently she accepted a position as an
esthetician at an Aveda concept salon and spa in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Henry¹s mother, Marianne Dougherty, editor in chief of American Salon
magazine, introduced her to Patty Schmucker, founder of DoshaCare, in 2008.
Henry was so impressed with the line of customized Ayruvedic skin care
products that she has accepted a position as lead educator for the company.
She looks forward to sharing her years of experience and love for her
profession with estheticians around the country.


Rachel also worked with us as our head educator and esthetician at the International Salon and Spa Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center this past weekend, Jan. 31-Feb. 2nd, where she and founder, Patty Schmucker taught a class called Beyond Beauty, Offer Wellness. During this class, Rachel demonstrated a 55 minute Ayurvedic facial complete with marma point therapy and gemstone wand massage. We are so honored to have Rachel join our team and head up our developing education program. Look for a new segment on our blog called “Ask Rachel” every Friday. Please send any questions you might have about skincare, Ayurvedic facial treatments, problematic skin conditions, etc. to and then Rachel will post her answers here every Friday.
