Facial Massage and Skincare Course

During this course you will learn different techniques to massage the face, neck, and shoulders, whilst using a variety of products to care specifically for your clients skin type. Facials involve some massage which aids in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The facial massage also helps to relax facial muscles which can slow the onset of wrinkles on the face. Puffiness reduction, sagging in the face and skin cell renewal are additional benefits from these massage techniques.
