Client Reviews for Bonne Santé...
August 2019 I have been seeing Melina at Bonne Sante for the past two years. I had thick scars that were already a year old. They were on the left side of my face and had developed because a cancer lesion, not quite healed, became infected with poison ivy...that went up into my nose, opened the left side of my lips, and drained all the way under my chin. After a year on antibiotics, and not eating even a thin sandwich because of the tear in my lips...I found Melina through a 3rd party. Her kindness, knowledge, and willingness to work with me has been a wonderful experience because she has actually become both a friend and a daughter to me! The "great news" is that most of the thick callous-like scars are gone, and I may not need any laser to "smooth out" the left side of my face. SO GLAD I found Bonne Sante and Melina. I will continue to have services done by Melina at Bonne Sante!

Look younger and feel more energetic! After trying various diets, I sought nutritional counseling from Rosemary Barclay, founder of Bonne Santé. I was attracted by her education. As a PhD biochemist, Rosemary understands WHY nutrition is so important to maintaining proper weight and overall health. I lost over 20 lbs in about 4 months and have kept it off by following her "lifetime shopping list." I basically eat as much as I want of the "go" foods, so I do not feel like I am "dieting." In fact, I feel younger and have more mental and physical energy than I have in years. And it comes from eating good food, in proper proportions, and not from magic "supplements." Rosemary has also developed her own line of skin care products, based on natural ingredients, tested without harming animals, and packaged in light-blocking glass. Have a facial with Rosemary or one of her estheticians in her cosy spa. Or have a massage. Then use the products she recommends. You will feel and look GREAT!

Bonne Santé is one of the best kept secrets in Old Lyme. Their facials and massages are wonderful-we have received personalized attention and care.

I thought I knew a lot about nutrition until I visited Bonne Santé. After a few sessions here I realized that I had been on the wrong track-since then I have learnt to nurture my body from within and feel far more energetic. The skincare line is wonderful and really makes a difference to my skin

The moment you walk through Bonne Santé's door, you will feel an ambiance that is serene, pacifying and spiritual. You will instantly be aware this is the place you will find what you need to move forward during these tenuous times in a more positive way; physically, mentally and emotionally. Rosemary is a lovely lady who possesses a well-qualified, friendly staff that can provide you with the the special needs you require and deserve for improved overall health and well-being. So far, my personal experience at Bonne Santé has involved massage with Claire. After my first session, I immediately began to feel better. Claire has a degree in nursing and works part-time here. She uses her medical knowledge and training to ease pain and provides knowledge and stretch exercises for you to practice at home . This is not a spa but a wellness center that distinguishes it from others . My session at Bonne Santé's has been (and continues to be) a reassuring occurrence. Without question, I know it will be yours, too.

It has been 2 or more years that I have enjoyed Bonne Santé. I get massages and facials, and purchase skin care products which are made from food grade ingredients. The aromatherapy that goes along with the massage or facial is so delicious. I would say you have to go and see for yourself. This business stands out from the rest because Rosemary uses food grade ingredients which is important to me and anyone who cares about limiting the use chemicals.
