Hello Friends! My name is Mandy and it is my privilege to welcome you to Miraculous Moments. Over the years I have put a lot of time and energy into receiving my NJ Skin Care License, certification in massage therapy, and becoming an Integrative Wellness Consultant with an amazing education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. A loving wife and mother of three wonderfully wild little boys, who were born within 18 months of one another, I am no stranger to the beautiful chaos of motherhood. It is because of my experiences with my pregnancies that I have been inspired to create a safe haven for expecting moms. This is their own special place. Here at Miraculous Moments I invite our clients to feel like family. Come as you are to enjoy the relaxing environment that you are looking for.
