Fay Halkitis BHSc Nat, ADipBT (CIDESCO) (ITEC) is a qualified Naturopath (Herbalist, Nutritionist) and Beauty Therapist who combines a unique range of qualifications to practise her area of special interest, Naturopathic skin health.
After completing her Naturopathy degree and beauty qualification in Sydney, Fay has been observing the healing benefits of regular facial treatments when combined with evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle modifications and combines these two key areas for her treatments.
Two years spent working in London exposed Fay to a whole world of natural skincare yet to reach Australia. With a desire to share these discoveries and armed with techniques learned during five years as an Aesop Facial Therapist, Luna Beauty & Apothecary was born.
As a holistic beauty therapist and Naturopath, Fay strongly believes education is the key in helping clients make the most informed decisions about what they put in and on their body. With a special interest in organic skincare and the concept of ‘food as medicine', Fay's combination of nutrition and beauty therapy gives a ‘whole person' approach to skin health.

Health. With an innate understanding for health, we can offer true solutions, reading further into the cause of the presenting condition.
Education. Education is essential. We must be able to make informed decisions about everything we put in and on our body
Inspired by the Ophiuchus (pronounced Oh-fee-YOU-cuss) constellation located around the celestial equator, a trusted merit of healing used in different forms throughout the ages (see above).
We are continually drawing on the knowledge that our body does the most healing and repairing while we sleep.
