If you know me, you know that NOT working any more is slightly uncomfortable. Don’t get me wrong, retirement is pretty cool. Health insurance is affordable, I can hang out in the mornings and drink coffee in my cozies, and importantly, can give my body a rest.
After a back injury a few years back, I had to step away from a 35 year massage therapy career that had become too strenuous. I wasn’t at all ready to stop providing therapy and teaching others about it so I continued treating my clients with head and neck therapies, including manual lymph drainage, and reflexology.
In a short amount of time, I was receiving referrals for TMJ, headaches, and skin toning and rejuvenation. I loved it! As I usually do, I dug in and researched and studied everything face! Energetic pathways for reflexology are accessible in the face, sinus and lymph drainage can be accessed in the face, muscles of the face can be toned through massage, skin can be rejuvenated through massage, and on and on! My clients look and feel great.
Last weekend I introduced my new Therapeutic Facial Massage program to a handful of Licensed Massage Therapists and we were all really excited to focus on specific techniques for the face. We had only planned on Saturday and were still practicing on Sunday afternoon. It was a great weekend.
Why Therapeutic Facial Massage (TFM)? Simple. The face contains fluid, toxins, muscles that are not kept toned, tired skin, and other points that relate to the internal organs and their health. Deep relaxation can be accomplished through head, neck, and face therapy, and with rest, the face shows it! Clients look like they have had a restful vacation.
If you are a Cosmetologist, a Massage Therapist, or just someone who enjoys making others feel and look great, contact me to see the schedule of classes beginning June, 2018. If you know me, you know that teaching massage is my passion and I'm really proud of this new program including tons of new information and head and neck techniques. I can’t wait to see you this summer! Kathy D.
