About Us

Our Story

Ever wonder how serendipitous life can be….. Honey and Erika (aka The Honey and The Bunny), were both born in the same city, London, England, one year apart. Honey born a year earlier, Erika will never let her forget she is the elder.   
Living parallel lives, until they met at their best friend’s practice in 2016, and sparks were ignited.
Their dream is simple: a seamless medical practice that incorporates highly trained physicians, and NPs/PAs, to provide the elite injection techniques, and practices to patients around the world. The caveat to the dream – not only do they provide elite medical care, but they have designed a training university to provide advanced, specialized training in person, and virtually to providers. 
Exciting days, months, and years to come.  Cheers to health, wealth and, most importantly, happiness. 
Honey and Bunny


Erika Barry, NP-C, MSN

Master Injector

Born in the UK but raised in a small town in Michigan, Erika grew up with both a love for beauty and an appreciation for hard work. At a young age, Erika became fascinated with the cosmetic industry, and dreamt of becoming a make-up artist for film and television. As she grew older, her knack for science and research became apparent, and her passion and talent aligned when she decided to pursue a career in medical aesthetics.

After studying nursing and obtaining her BSN from the University of Miami, Erika trained under some of the country’s leading plastic surgeons at The Johns Hopkins University. At Hopkins, she completed her first Master’s Degree in Family Medicine.

Since then, Erika has focused her career on the aesthetics industry. Positioning herself as one of the top injectors in the United States, Erika serves as an international trainer for Merz, Allergan, and Galderma, where she’s also recognized as an expert faculty.

Showcasing her work on Instagram, she has increased her following to nearly 130,000 in just under 2 years. Although she’s already accomplished so much, Erika is just getting started. Maintaining her role as a leading figure in medical aesthetics, Erika is determined to make a lasting impact by continuing to revolutionize the industry.

Injector Kelly

Kelly Branch, RN


Kelly has an innate love for the art of injecting, which is evident through her experienced work with Botox® and Xeomin® injections as well as various dermal fillers.

The Long Island native’s academic path was initially on a pre-med track, but she felt a career as a physician wasn’t necessarily the best fit. That didn’t stifle her love for the science aspect of it all, however, especially the biology and chemistry components.

Kelly began her career at a dermatopathology lab following her graduation with a bachelor’s degree in human biology. There she obtained her histology license and played a key role in the diagnosis of skin disorders and diseases along with the attending dermatopathologist. But her desire for more human interaction eventually led her to look into nursing school, and she soon got accepted into an accelerated program.

But it wasn’t until she started personally experimenting with different forms of skincare and having her own aesthetics treatments that her career path would take a welcomed turn toward the wonderful world of medical aesthetics.

Kelly became a patient of Erika Barry’s (@injectorbunny) and was soon training with her and business partner Hania Khorshidi (@injectorhoney) on injections. The rest is history.

Kelly takes the time to listen to every patient’s concerns, maps out a tailored plan, and spends ample one-on-one time to educate her patients.

After graduating Boston University with a BFA in acting, Ally worked for a concierge medical office where she instantly became drawn to the aesthetic side of the practice. After a move to New York, Ally enrolled in a school of esthetics and soon began working at a facial boutique, where she learned a lot of valuable knowledge about certain treatments and skincare products.

She soon became a patient of Erika of Hania’s, and when the duo announced they were hiring an esthetician for their growing business, Ally shot to the front of the line. Ally is beyond excited to help create some beautiful changes in every patient she interacts with at Moksha!

  • Erika is a true artist and all around sweetheart. I'm a very nervous patient and she not only tolerated my drama but managed to soothe my anxieties off the bat.

  • I love EVERYTHING about Moksha! The space itself is beautiful, the staff professional, well trained and knowledgeable, and Erika, aka @injectorbunny, and Hania, aka @injectorhoney, are two of my favorite people ever. I've been seeing Erika since right around the time she started injecting, and she introduced me to Hania when we decided I needed threads. Getting treated by either of these talented women is as comfortable an experience as having coffee with a best friend, and their expert knowledge of the products and facial anatomy combined with the gentle touch they both possess results in a virtually pain free experience with minimal bruising and swelling. For a little background on me, I'm in my mid 50's, and entered the aesthetics arena with the intention not of looking like a younger version of myself, but rather as the best version of myself possible at the age that I am, without surgery. I am happy to report that my experience exceeds my expectations! From the very beginning Erika took a slow and steady approach to my treatments, and I've never felt conspicuous or over-treated. I receive favorable compliments from friends and family, but have never been asked what I've had done. When I reveal it to someone they always express surprise and remark how fresh and natural I look. As any woman my age is sure to understand, it's a great feeling! I truly cannot recommend Erika and Hania enough, and wouldn't trust my face to anyone else.

  • Erika at Moksha is a GODDESS when it comes to not only injections and botox but also simply being a wonderful person [...] She is kind, compassionate, and patient with all of her clients. She also takes the time to educate her clients in what she is doing and why and also about how our face actually moves and functions. She focuses on ENHANCING natural features, which is why all of her clients look AMAZING, but not DONE (if you know what I mean!) I have learned so much just by being one of her clients. She is the only person I will ever let touch my face! I have sent so many of my friends to see her and they also agree- she is INCREDIBLE. She has done both botox and lip injections on me and both are PAINLESS!! If you are thinking about injections- Erika or really any of the wonderful injectors at Moksha are a MUST!!

  • I have been following Hania and Erika for a while on Instagram and loved their work. I have never had any injectables before and was very nervous. I have been to a few other medical spas for a consultation but never felt at ease. My appointment at Moksha was with Hania for botox and filler. From the second I walked in, I was impressed. The place is absolutely stunning! The staff was extremely professional. They made me feel very comfortable. Hania is amazing! She spent her time explaining what procedures would benefit me and why. I she did a full facial analysis, which no one had done before. We ended up doing botox and filler and I am beyond thrilled with my results. I am so happy I found Moksha.

  • When you open the door to this beautiful, stylish and ... serine place you are met by very friendly, polite and respectful staff. It feels like they are ready, willing and happy to help to make you feel calm from the very beginning of your visit to Moksha. The whole ambience sets your mood as positive and exiting to anticipate a "good thing" that gonna happen (or supposed to:-) shortly. And it does!!! We all come to Moksha in hope to leave a bit (or a lot) more beautiful. I was treated by Ms. Hanie Khorshidi (aka @injectohoney), and the treatment went beyond my expectations. The first words that come to mind about her: very friendly and kind, extremely professional, highly knowledgeable in medical and aesthetic field, reasonable and rational - she will not recommend anything that is not appropriate aesthetically wise for your face or/and your age. She listens kindly and with interest to her patient - which is already a calming factor during a procedure. She gives you a candid and sincere advice and comes up with a realistic solution. And I just wanted to mention how "light' are her hands, so to speak...no pain, no bruising afterwards whatsoever:-). Bravo!!! and thank you so much. It's very inspiring that professional like Hanie is on your "beauty" side. It leaves you with hope. And this is priceless...

  • The Moksha Aesthetics team is THE BEST! Professional masters who make youlook and feel beautiful :-)Fear from horror stories of bad work had made me very hesitant to get anything done.. Who to really trust/Who could calm my nerves/Who could answer my questions... if you are in a similar boat, GO TO MOKSHA!!Erika and Hania are the legit dream team, and the staff and space are so warm and inviting that you immediately feel at ease. Hania did an AMAZING job giving me a very natural contour to my face, and Erika did a FANTASTIC job on giving me the extra natural pout I wanted for my lips. I could not be happier, and HIGHLY RECOMMEND to any and all who are looking to get any work done at all. I love Moksha!

  • This was my first time receiving fillers and I am in love! Hania did an excellent job. She was very caring and honest with what she thought were my best options and what outcome to expect. I drove from North Carolina after watching her on Instagram for a year and it was totally worth it!

  • I couldn't be more happy with these two ladies. Erika was the first one to see me and her plan was en point. We rebuilt my face volume lost and a few other concerns in 3 sessions, slow and steady is the way to go. Hania which did all my fillers is a true artist. In the 10 years I get fillers, these two are the most advanced and educated I've met.

  • I see Erika, aka @injectorbunny. When I tell you she in a miracles worker ... that is putting it mildly. This woman is a true artist. She knows anatomy which puts her in a class of her own. I trust her with all my dermal aesthetic procedures and I'd recommend her and the Moksha Ae. team to family, close friends and all who inquire. If you are looking for a "good" injector... keep browsing. If you want the BEST injector, your search stops here! Game Slayers!

She knows exactly what she's doing, she's not afraid to say no to requests that might make you look ridiculous, and she's just so straightforward and blunt with anything you ask. She always always does right by me, and I literally will not trust anyone else to touch my precious face!!

  • I had an amazing experience at Moksha Aesthetics over the past few weeks! I'm a "tired" mommy of two and wanted to look more rested and a bit refreshed. I scheduled a consult with Hania and we decided to do tear trough fillers and Botox. Not only am I loving my results the procedure itself was painless.

  • I love Erika! Have been going to her for the past 3-4 years and she never fails to amaze me. She is a total sweetheart and really is a world class pro at what she does and she is best at it!! She is always honest about what will and will not work or look good. She really listens to your needs and builds a plan accordingly. I am so glad I was referred to her a couple years back and I make sure to book my appointment months in advance cuz she is extremely busy and books out quick months in advance. Go see her, you won’t be disappointed. Icing on the cake is that she is so lovable and a total sweetheart!!!!

  • I have been lucky to be a client of Erika's for a few years now. She is so professional, so wonderful to work with, so skilled at what she does, and makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process. She walks you through every thing she does and is super approachable with any questions you may have. I am beyond thrilled for her and her brand new location- you will not regret coming here! Moksha Aesthetics is STUNNING inside. Covid safe, everyone is so friendly, interior clean and stylish, and easy to get to with easy parking. I have had Botox and lip injections with Erika in the past, and she truly cares about each and every patient. She always makes everyone look absolutely flawless, and would never overfill or over inject- she treats her patients in the most ethical way possible. I have been so happy with my results in the last several years, and look forward to many more times at Moksha to keep me young and fresh looking! Make an appointment ASAP! :)
