Katya Durant

“Love the skin you are in.”

Born and raised in Southern Russia, an area renowned for its numerous spas, health retreats, healing mineral waters and natural beauty, Katya grew up with a passion for healthy skin. As a teenager, Katya naturally gravitated towards the beauty of clear, healthy skin, and her professional training began at a school of cosmetology while still in high school.

Upon completing her degree in psychology at the Moscow State University, Katya traveled to the U.S. to continue her training and experience as a professional esthetician. Katya spent 5 years at the prestigious Canyon Ranch Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts, an experience that culminated with a 6-month tour/contract at their Spa aboard the Queen Mary II.

After returning from these amazing travels and spending another year in Northampton, Massachusetts, running her own business, Katya finally decided it was time to move to New York City.

Katya’s skill and experience has allowed her to work in many exclusive spas and permitted her to gain extensive knowledge in aspects of skincare including the Medi-Spa Industry.

Katya is also a certified Reiki practitioner and a devoted scholar of energy healing. Incorporating such techniques in each of her treatments is beneficial to the overall result and feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.

Katya’s passion for beauty and well-being is reflected in her work and the amount of time she spends helping her clients receive the best care possible.

“I just had the most lovely and relaxing facial with Katya. I work in the beauty industry, have had many facials, and know a lot about skincare, so I am fairly picky when it comes to my skin. She thoroughly answered all of my questions and gave me great advice on how to take care of my skin. I haven’t been more relaxed in ages and appreciated every moment of my facial. I am definitely going back, and recommend to anyone looking for an absolutely outstanding facial experience. Thanks Katya and Rescue Spa!” -Lindsey N.

“Rescue spa does just that ! Rescues tired , blotchy, haggard skin, it’s works magic ! I saw Katya, she is stunning and beyond talented.  I have problem skin with over active mast cells. Meaning I’m allergic and still get adult acne.  Katya spent 90 minutes with me and changed my Whole face. I left glowing !  Rose , the front desk manager is just so darling and helpful. The product lines are in one word: exceptional. The brand I adore MBR, a german medical line is there. It’s hard to find. Also The go to line :Biologique ReCherche. It’s luxury par excellence. I live in SF , LA and now NYC. This will be the go to Facialist in NY. Katya is a dream of a technician and a lovely gentle person. This place is extraordinary.  My family is very oriented to health , beauty and self care. We are tough to impress.

“When I made the appointment, I was shooting for like, hoping for like, but it ended up being love! I have been buying product from the Rescue Spa in Philly for a while and was super excited to hear they were opening a Manhattan outpost. On a random Sunday, I booked a classic facial with Katya. The aesthetic of the spa is minimalist with a Soho vibe – definitely luxurious. They have a lot of high end products in the shop part of the spa but no heavy sales push. The spa area is lovely, clean and plush. After you check in, they offer you tea or fruit infused water. The facial itself was terrific. The extractions were noninvasive but thorough. My skin looked clean and glowing with zero redness. The facial was very relaxing and my skin is still glowing a week later. There is no heavy product push. Katya asked what I was using and suggested switching the order of the products (which had a fantastic result) but no “you must have” or “you need this.” I will definitely come back!” -Jaimee A
