Facial Acupressure and Massage (without needles) Workshop

[For shiatsu therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists or those trained in other modalities such as reflexology, thai massage, tuina...]  

In this one day workshop, Kate Kent Dipl. Ac., C.H. (NCCAOM) instructs students in a unique form of acupressure designed for the face. Using fingers instead of needles, students will learn to treat the face, neck and shoulders with the outcome being similar to the effects of cosmetic acupuncture - the release of toxins and tension from the skin, fine lines/wrinkles being minimized and an increase in the skinís radiance.

Students will be trained in the intricacies of working with the face and have extensive practice time with the instructor and each other. Students will also be taught how to make and apply a mask that further helps the skin.

Bodywork professionals can incorporate this new skill into their treatments or offer as a stand-alone service to their clients.

Materials will be supplied.
