Meet Linda Anne Kahn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Linda Anne Kahn.

Hi Linda Anne, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am a lymphedema therapist, massage therapist, clinical aromatherapist, and Integrative Health Coach and owner and founder of Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa & Wellness Center and Lymphatic Therapy services. I empower my clients to live a life full of vitality and health. I began my journey in South Africa where I graduated as a Beauty Therapist as an Internationally trained CIDESCO Beauty Therapist and Esthetician and helped clients with skincare, massage and health, I moved to San Diego, California in 1980 with my husband and two young children.

In 1983 as a new immigrant, I opened a small boutique salon, Beauty Kliniek in 1983 and rapidly built up my clients. At that time, nobody was aware of the benefits of facials, skincare or massage. I expanded and added more services. I offered the first-day package in San Diego. We then expanded to become a Day Spa and soon added health and wellness services to become a Wellness Center.

I have been a visionary and a Leader in my field. My emphasis since my career began has been health and wellness and looking at the person as a whole. I then began my travels to many countries in the quest for more knowledge as a lymphatic therapist. I studied at the prestigious Dr Vodder Clinic in Austria, Dr Foeldi Klinik Germany and the University of Adelaide Australia and graduated as an internationally trained Lymphedema therapist. I am nationally certified by LANA (Lymphology Association of North America) and was part of a team that created the Standard of care for LIpedema in the USA

I trained in England and France and also the USA and graduated as a Clinical Aromatherapist.

I lecture and teach nationally and Internationally at many Lymphedema, Fat disorder, Spa, and health conferences, and also teach an Aromatherapy certification program.

My purpose is to empower each and every client to learn how to live a life full of vitality and to achieve optimum health from the inside out. I achieve this through the use of aromatherapy, manual lymph drainage, nutrition, mind-body therapies, and health and lifestyle counseling.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We have had many challenges and struggles along the way. Immigrating to the USA with a family and leaving my family in South Africa was not easy and there were many adaptations we had to make. My husband was not in his chosen profession and it was very difficult for him. As my Day Spa grew, there were many growing pains, mistakes and challenges. We grew to have a staff of almost 5o, and that had many ups and downs. We went through several recessions, gulf war, 911 and then the great recession of 2008.

We survived COVID closures and we are thriving and rebuilding and moving forward.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
My purpose is to empower each and every client to learn how to live a life full of vitality and to achieve optimum health from the inside out. I use an integrative approach with every client and customize essential ol blends for the specific challenge that they are presenting. My specialties are aromatherapy, manual lymph drainage, nutrition, and lifestyle changes. My blends help with post-surgical care, pain relief, detoxification and even end-of-life care. I get referrals from physicians, plastic surgeons, naturopaths, acupuncturists, and previous clients. I have a reputation for giving the best integrative care, always looking at the whole person. My skills are to identify the root of the problem my client is presenting with.

I educate my clients about their disease process or condition and help to support them through difficult challenges.

I support my staff and teach and guide them to be the best that they can be…

Beauty Klniek will be celebrating 41 years this year and I am so proud of the excellent reputation of excellence we have. I created a skincare line and an essential oil synergy blends – Varenya Essentials… Varenya means excellence and that is what I strive for in all aspects of my life…

I have been teaching an Aromatherapy certification program for over 25 years. And love sharing my knowledge and passion with my students.

What matters most to you?
I care so much about people and want to help as many clients as possible on their journey to self-healing. My reputation and the relationships I have built over the years is very important to me. I want to be the best that I can be and always strive to do the best!

I volunteer for an aromatherapy association and contribute to spreading the word about aromatherapy as a healing art. and science… I contributed to the Standard of care for Lipedema for the USA and spent hours volunteering for this. It is very important to me that we educate as many physicians as possible o that women who are suffering with this disease are not lost and invalidated.
