I recently took the Facial Acupressure class at Alexander's Aesthetics from Gaynor Farmer-Katics. It was a fantastic class. I learned so much about the benefits and proper techniques of acupressure. The class environment comfortable and relaxed. The class was informative and very organized. Gaynor made sure we had the knowledge and proper hand placements to leave and treat our clients the next day. I wouldn't hesitate to take this class (or any other classes she teaches) and highly recommend it.Shawna Rocha: Licensed Esthetician
I just wanted to take a moment to thank Alexander's Aesthetics and Gaynor for a wonderful lymphatic drainage massage class. I have already incorporated the method into my treatments a few times and my clients are hooked. Gaynor was fabulous and thorough with her teaching and kept the class interesting and engaging. I look forward to take more classes from her, and the rest of the Alexander's educational team. Thank you for providing a learning space for aestheticians.Amy Ishimine: Esthetician
