How can I incorporate these techniques into my practice?
All of my massage techniques offer great flexibility as to when and where they may be incorporated into any service. Regardless of your specialty here are a few suggestions of how and why they add value to your service.
- Lash or brow artist - Revitalizing Eye Massage prior to your lash work helps to relax fluttery eyelids.
- Age Management - Your clients would benefit from all of my techniques, especially Facial Acupressure and Lymphatic Drainage Massage.
- Express facial services - Add Soothing and Smoothing Upper Body and Arm Massage during the masque stage of the treatment.
- Chemical peels - Stress Reducing Scalp Massage avoids manipulating facial areas while still offering relaxation and pleasure.

I'm not currently licensed but enrolled in beauty school, can I still attend a class?
Students are welcome to attend any of my massage classes. It is highly recommended that you have at least 300 hours before signing up for Lymphatic Drainage Massage or Facial Acupressure.
How can I get the most out of a class?
Whether you attend an "in person" class or one online, I recommend the following;
- Rest well the night before so you are more alert and receptive to absorb new information.
- Practice, practice, practice! As soon as you get home or the next day have someone lined up who you can practice on. Repetition is the key to learning.
- Even if you do not have someone you can practice on, repeating the sequence with your hands in mid air, you've heard of "air guitar" this is "air massage". It will still help the cognitive brain learn the routine.
How many students are in an "in person" class?
Each class is purposely kept small and intimate assuring individual attention can be given to each learner. The maximum in some classes is 8 and other classes is 12.
Why are the "in person" classes only one day in length?
One day classes minimize the time away from your home, practice or school for your convenience. I always encourage immediate practice following class to reinforce what you learned in class.
My lesson plans are well organized and consolidated ensuring maximum learning takes place.
Facial Acupressure and Lymphatic Drainage Massage have a prerequisite of a webinar and assessment to complete prior to attending the practical class. This allows to solely focus on the techniques themselves.
Alternatively, if you prefer to learn over a longer period of time why not consider enrolling in an online course?
What should I wear or bring with me to an "in person" class?
I recommend you wear comfortable clothing, what you would normally wear when you treat your clients. Flat comfortable shoes also help with you posture and alignment as some techniques require standing.
You could bring a pencil (pens are provided) and all of the learning guides are issued in class. The only other thing is a smile and an open, willing attitude to learn something new.
How much theory is there in each class?
As the focus of each class is for you to learn and practice new techniques theory is kept to a minimum. In order to fully understand where you hands, fingers or thumbs should be placed, a brief overview of anatomy is included in most of the classes.
