Specializing in Skincare and Inner Well-Being
At REJUVENATE Sanctuary, the focus is on Natural Products with the emphasis on Restorative Health Philosophies. My experience offers a vast selection of Skincare options for your face, body and inner well being.
My wish to be a part of the healing one person at a time.
At this time I am offering consultation via Zoom, education to Estheticians and Reiki wellness and Reiki classes.
My private practice has been reenergized by my move to beautiful Elizabethton, TN
Sue Bonito, licensed Aesthetician with a specialty in Oncology Esthetics®, Reiki Practitioner Teacher and owner of REJUVENATE Sanctuary, is a client-centric practitioner who specializes in restorative beauty treatments using botanical based products. When she was in her Westwood spa, Sue's calling is to promote wellness through restorative practices. In 2019, Sue has been given the highest honor and been asked to teach Esthetics 2 days/week at a local school allowing her to share her knowledge and expertise with the upcoming Estheticians, but also be challenged by their questions and needs. This led to New York State Esthetics Teacher Licensure.
Sue has taken a synergistic approach to her practice, utilizing the knowledge she’s gained from attaining a degree in horticulture to increase the effectiveness of each treatment. Sue’s customizing practice is unique, as she has found the affinity between botanicals and skin balance to curtail the signs of aging, environmental impact, to encourage real and lasting effects leading to a renewing, harmonizing experience. In 2004, Sue opened her first spa in New City, NY; her family encountered a medical tragedy and she closed her spa to focus on the family. In 2011, she reopened her practice in Westwood, NJ.
In November 2021 after relocating to Elizabethton, TN; Sue continued to teach Esthetics for Christine Valmy, Int'l in NYC via Zoom 3 days a week and absolutely loves sharing with the new generation of Estheticians knowledge and the gift of skincare treatments. Currently, Sue is consulting with Spas and Estheticians in Carter County, TN; continuing to inspire the next generation of Esthetics in her new home state. At this time she is committed to Essence Salon and Spa, Elizabethton, TN in its growth to the next level. Working there Sue is offering Reiki and Oncology Esthetic Sessions. She is still consulting with Esthetic Curriculum at various schools, but currently is not actively teaching. Sue is currently teaching the Oncology Esthetics Program via zoom for Oncology Training International.
Sue is a Reiki Master Teacher/Practitioner of the Usui System of Natural Healing, Practitioner/Teacher of Jikiden Reiki. Sue's first initiation into Reiki was in 1999. Her lifelong passion is to support people in the transformation of their personal and inner well-being.
Giving back to the community is extremely important to Sue, so she volunteers her time and services to those in need. She has volunteered with The Girl Scouts of America; American Red Cross - Disaster Response; was the Designer, Coordinator, and Project Manager of the American Patriot Garden Project at the 9 1 1 Memorial of Haverstraw Bay Park, Haverstraw, NY; and has volunteered her Reiki services for United Hospice of Rockland, New City, NY. Sue feels her life is continually blessed by service to others. Sue has offered Reiki at Brookdale of Emerson Senior Living to clients with Dementia or reaching the end stages of life. Currently, Sue has offered her Reiki Services to Carter County Drug Prevention Coalition located in Elizabethton, TN.
Sue believes that balance and maintenance of our magnificent bodies allow us to live long and happy lives.
In her time off, if you want to find Sue always look to the trails, as Sue loves nature and hiking. Blessings
