She has established strong partnership with Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurologists, Pain Management Physicians, Doctors of Chiropractic, Rehabilitative Specialists, Athletic Directors, Coaches and Personal Injury Attorneys in the community proving not only that it can be done but also that a cohesive team approach is often the most efficient way to help a patient..
“Over the years I have continued to add to my knowledge in order to be able to help as many patients I possibly could. Most of the time, a joint effort from Western and Eastern Medicine is required to obtain optimal health. For that reason, patients should proactively seek a team of highly trained professionals in various fields, all working toward one common goal; the PATIENT’S best interest. Your health portfolio should be built with the same concepts as your financial portfolio; diversification is the key!, Dr. Marie Perkins tells her patients.”

Pamela Harris is a licensed esthetician and s 200-hr certified yoga instructor, specializing in skincare, waxing, body treatments, and studio/private yoga lessons. Pamela has been working in esthetics and practicing yoga for over 20 years. She is also expanding her knowledge in Ayurvedic nutrition and yoga therapies with a NAMA accredited course. Her objective is to bring health and wellness to her clients by blending Ayurvedic therapies, yoga, and esthetics together in a natural and holistic approach.
Pamela’s interest in esthetics began back when she was in high school. She had some minor skin care problems of her own so she began to use makeup – a lot of makeup, but as she matured, she realized she needed to take care of her skin instead of just covering it up. She booked an appointment for her first facial and was hooked! As soon as her youngest started kindergarten, she set off to receive her esthetics license. At first, she took more of a medical approach to her practice and worked in a high-end spa. But shortly thereafter, she found yoga. Pamela instantly fell in love and attended class every week continuing to make it a part of her life over the next several years. After practicing for about 10 years, Pamela sought out her 200-hour yoga teacher certification. Throughout Pamela’s practice in both fields, her path has changed. Her theory is: Why not combine them together in a natural and holistic way. Pamela aims to inspire healing from within; creating a relaxing environment that is not only cleansing for your skin but is also cleansing for your mind, body, and soul.
Pamela’s hobbies include Yoga, Qi Gong, and making Organic skincare. Over the past few years, she developed very successful workshops which include teaching participants to make their own organic skincare. Pamela also loves travel. Recently she had the opportunity to volunteer at an Eco Village in Taiwan where she taught yoga and learned about organic farming.
Pamela’s dream one day is to create her own organic skincare line that values what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. It should be made with fresh, whole, and pure ingredients.
Pamela is excited to meet you and have you join her on this journey.
