Sculptural Facial Lift
Please watch the video for more information
Sculptural Lift Facial is a technique developed taught exclusively by world renown specialist Yakov Gershkovich. The technique involves manipulating the muscles, tendons, and bones of the face for one full hour in order to lift and rejuvenate the face, release tension, held emotions, and stress buried deep in the tissue. This tension can come from many issues including past trauma and emotional stress and sometimes, the tension is subconscious. I will perform the technique which involves manipulating the muscles from the outside and I will also manipulate the muscles from reaching inside the mouth to create space in the face and reach an extremely deep level of relaxation. In fact, most clients fall asleep during the technique!
This is unlike any other facial massage and cannot be compared to other techniques.
This technique is great for those with grinding or clenching tendencies, TMJ issues, eye strain, grief, or depression.
It is also very effective for those who want a physical lift to their entire face without the use of injections, fillers or Botox.
Take a look at the before and after photos. These photos are taken after just one service but more dramatic results occur when performed twice a week for 4 weeks, (which is suggested for full physical lift results) as well as monthly for maintenance.
You will most certainly see and feel a difference after your first session.
I perform the Sculptural Lift Facial at my studio in Decatur and at Kindred Studio in Grant Park.
It is important to recognize that in manipulating the facial muscles, we create triggers in other parts of the body that help different systems. For example, the lips are the first entry point for your digestive tract. The work that is done on the lips is not just for visual purposes to plump them, but it triggers relaxation all along the digestive tract. You might experience some stomach gurgling or other sensations after the technique as this happens. Don't worry! It's a good thing!
The manipulation also helps the brain as lips and the connective tissue in the face play an important part in the sensory feedback system of the brain. All systems of the body are connected and the connections in the face are vital to well being. Manipulation of key areas can make your entire body feel better!
Also stimulated with this technique is the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve runs through and wraps around all your body organs and is the largest of the nerves coming from the brain. It regulates many things, but the one that is the most useful for your well being is the ability to trigger the relaxation response in the body. This response slows down your heart rate, breathing rate, brain waves, blood pressure, and many other systems that switch on when you are in the "fight or flight" mode.
In this state of being, all the body systems work better including your immune system which cannot function in the fight or flight phase. Many of us are walking around in the fight or flight phase constantly without even knowing it.
Once again, this is not a massage or a pulling of the muscles to stimulate circulation. This is a manipulation of the muscles, connective tissue (fascia), lymphatic fluid and system, bones and energy.
I invite you to experience what total bliss feels like.
