Personal Development

Spa owner Candi LoPresti’s background in the field of modelling /personal development and holistic health created a passion for helping others realize what is possible for their lives. Teaching and coaching led to the LifeEsentials Personal Development Program. This course is designed for those looking for that extra bit of polish (beginning with Children!)—the Etiquette, Communication Skills, Self-Esteem and Confidence to feel assured in any situation.
