Sample Completed Program

Full Name: Natalia Lemeshko
City: Harkiv
Country: Ukraine
Program Title:
French Facial Massage (Fitness Sculpting Facial Massage)
Experience: 3 years

About me: Cosmetologist-Massage Therapist, practicing privately since 2009. I hold medical and specialized education. Additionally, I continually enhance my skills through workshops and seminars. One day, I was faced with the challenge of finding and mastering a quality facial massage technique that would deliver results from the first session and provide a lasting effect after completing the course – correcting age-related changes as much as possible for each individual. Today, I am a qualified specialist in the French facial massage technique, also known as fitness sculpting facial massage.

Program Description: This massage promotes active strengthening of facial muscles, smooths wrinkles, lifts the corners of the lips, performs correction of the cheek area, and shapes a more defined and lifted facial contour. All of my students who have mastered this technique are always in demand and receive gratitude from clients!
