KEN ZEN ICHII is a system for the furthering of that which is essential, how to behave on this earth before one departs.

We strive to develop many of the positive attributes that are needed in our society.

Facial and Body Works

Facial and Bodyworks, Inc is my little paradise and garden spa for esthetics right in the middle of the old town of Huntersville, NC. I ( Biggi) grew up in the famous spa-city of Wiesbaden (Germany) where the ancient Romans cultivated the healing properties of the 26 hot thermal wells coming out of the ground still to this day. Patients use these thermal waters to bathe in as a cure for arthritis and rheumathism. Therefore is makes it almost logical that I was interested in spa treatments. Originally I was trained and worked as a PA in Germany for 15 years before my move to the US. My medical knowledge still comes in handy in my line of work as an esthetician today.
