Apothecary Richmond was born out of the desire to create simple, effective, and safe personal care products. Summer is a Board Certified Massage Therapist and Licensed Esthetician offering services in Richmond Virginia. Her skin care treatments are inspired by the classic European style facial, with focus on clearing lymph and reducing congestion in the tissues. As a massage therapist Summer has studied extensively in aromatherapy, facial lines, cupping, and lymphatics.


Summer graduated from American Institute of Massage, now Lotus School of Integrative Studies in 2012. She became Board Certified in 2016 and a Licensed Esthetician in 2015. She has a BA in English Literature from VCU, studied and taught ESL classes in the Czech Republic, managed a restaurant in Brooklyn, and pulled espresso in Seattle.
