TESTIMONIALS

I was very intrigued when I heard about IV Therapy. No other medical spa, at least that I have heard of, was offering this. I don’t love needles, but I guess who does? Joanie is awesome. She makes you very comfortable and the entire procedure was easy, painless and comfortable. The spa is very clean and glamourous. Beautiful tall ceilings and and very quiet and calming ambiance. Their location has plenty of parking and conveniently located in between the Library and the Post Office in Bluffton. I have had the IV Therapy done twice now and already have my third scheduled. I love the science behind it and you an definitely tell a difference within a few days. I have had other services there, as well. I highly recommend the expertise of this Med Spa. Their passion for new science and education, paired with their compassion and love of their chose careers does not go unnoticed.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kristi Blessitt for over 10 years. She has helped me navigate my pre- and post-menopausal years by keeping my hormones in balance and recommending appropriate treatments for other issues related to my overall wellness.  What sets her apart is personalization. She’s not writing the same script for every patient who walks through her door. She listens, observes, and takes into account all aspects of your lifestyle and health before making recommendations. She is a brilliant physician with the ability to analyze the numbers from your lab tests and translate that information into an effective treatment plan. She takes a natural path whenever possible and prescribes medications and therapies thoughtfully with regard to your unique physical and emotional needs.  If you are looking for a doctor who can relate to you as a woman and think outside the box instead of falling back on the same cookie-cutter formulas that are not working, see Dr. Blessitt, and be patient while she works her magic.

I have been seeing Tavia monthly for almost 3 years. She is the first anesthetist to listen to me, try alternative methods like diet, and not just push products. I suffered from adult acne most likely related to hormones after having 4 beautiful children. Tavia was able to significantly reduce the scarring (or in Tavia’s fancy words: post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) and the outbreaks with her recommendations (facial upkeep routine and laser). She really cares about her outcomes and your feedback. She always took extra care not to recommend a treatment that could even remotely have been contraindicated with breastfeeding and pregnancy. Her compassion, wealth of knowledge in both natural and up-to-date information, and professionalism truly do set her apart from the rest. I would strongly recommend her to anyone, regardless of age or skin issues.

I have been taking bioidentical hormones for over 22 years. During that time, I’ve had a number of gynecologists, hormone specialists and anti-aging doctors. I have been with Dr. Blessitt for more than 10 years. None of the others come close to her knowledge in these fields. I’m glad that I found her and I’m not letting her go!

Tavia is the most authentic honest and helpful Skin care experts I have ever visited.  She has recommended the perfect skin care treatments and at home routine for me and I receive compliments on my skin everywhere I go.   When you’re constantly fighting dehydration and time from your career but you can relax knowing you’re in good hands when you get home I believe it’s worth every penny I’ve invested.  She has not only changed my skin with my favorite treatment ever (microneedling ) but she’s changed the way I feel about myself in my own skin.  I would absolutely recommend her as the best in the area for skincare if you want honest recommendations and a caring specialist.

Dr. Kristi Blessitt makes you feel so comfortable I trust her expertise with my face. When I go in to see her I let her know what I’m feeling tired looking around eyes, needing a little more cheek filler, etc, and as I’m talking to her she’s studying my face and listens to me and then I tell her work your magic and she does just that. She makes me feel and look so natural and refreshed.

Client from Bluffton, SC, Age 48

Tavia is brilliant beauty specialist. I have found the results of her micro-needling and derma-blade sessions above all expectations. She is also a lovely human being, who makes you feel completely welcome and at ease. I would recommend her services to anyone of any age.

Dr. Blessitt has been administering Botox to me for several years. She is very concise and I am always pleased with the results. I trust her very much with my Botox treatments! 

Jenni

I don’t even know where to begin to even possibly say how wonderful Tavia is as an esthetician.  I have been a client of hers for over 3 years.  She gives her time to each client and never makes you feel rushed.  She takes the time to hear your concerns and give you a treatment plan that she believes would work best for your skin type.  She never tries to sell you on things that would not be beneficial for your skin or ever make you feel pressured to do a treatment.  She makes you feel special and truly cares for each of her clients.

I have been a patient of Dr. KrIsti Blessitt for 8 years. She has done a fabulous job of compounding my hormones. I no longer have sleep issues ,hot flashes or night sweats. She has been a blessing in my life. She is compassionate, understanding, and listens to you as a individual. I highly recommend her.

Linda Herczegh

Dr. Kristi Blessitt was there for me when so many other doctors were failing me. She saved not only my daughter’s life, but also mine. She did this by thinking outside the box with a combination of holistic and conventional techniques, by truly listening to me as a person (not just as a patient), and an obvious dedication to my wellbeing. Over the years, I have come to know Dr. Blessitt as a superior healthcare provider who is constantly researching and honing her craft. As a holistic practitioner myself, I often find myself referring my clients to her, and they, too, have been witness to her professionalism and compassion.

Rebecca, Hilton Head Island

I have been a patient of Tavia’s for over 5 years. In this field of skin care and all the options that are in the marketplace, navigation of what is right for you is key.  There is no “one shoe fits all” even though many providers push everything on everyone.  Tavia has never tried to “sell” me on products or treatments that did not make sense for my skin.  I would follow her anywhere as trust is a huge attribute when dealing with this crowded marketplace where everyone is fighting for the same private pay population.  Thanks Tavia for always being true to your patients and equally important yourself!

Linda

I have been very fortunate to have had Dr Blessitt as my doctor for the past seven years. During that time, she was my ObGyn and now my doctor for hormonal and low thyroid issues. The hormonal issues that I have had triggered migraines. She has successfully navigated me through the complexities of balancing hormone and thyroid medications. In discussing Dr Blessitt with other patients that she has treated, all agree that she is an outstanding physician who is dedicated  to each of her patients. Hilton Head is fortunate to have such a kind and talented doctor practice here.

I have been a customer from the day they opened and have been delighted to see them grow into a multi service Med Spa. Tavia Overstock has transformed my facial skin to the point I no longer wear makeup except powder. Amazing because of the redness , freckles and dark patches on my face from sun damage. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
