“I enjoyed Ellie’s Facial Massage class very much.  I learned alot about how focusing on the facial muscles can result in a deep relaxation session for a client.  I loved the choice of products she uses right down to the banana leaves and tea bags.  It was at this point I slipped into my most relaxed state.  The additional massage that accompanies the facial increases the overall effect and I find it uniquely thought out.  The face looks incredibly relaxed, toned and more youthful at the end of the session and is sure to “Wow” your clients.” Lyn M. Sinclair, LMT 
“Thanks for a really great class.  I loved the reality of a small class with such individualized instruction.  My clients are enjoying the LuminEssence Facelifting Massage and frankly, so am I as I am using my newly learned techniques everyday on my own face. Once again, Thank you.”  Faith Single
LuminEssense Face Lifting Massage class was a delightful surprise. It was fun, informative, clearly presented and relaxing!!!!!!!!!!
The products are TOP NOTCH.  What a great way to earn CEU’s!   Oh, and did I mention, nicely affordable?????”  Diane Marie
I have been a student of Ellie Sandler for her LuminEssence Facelifting
Massage Facial.  Not only was it a service I could use right away, but
my clients love it as well.  Ellie is an educated instructor holding
more than one professional license, which through this, she could
incorporate into the teaching different perspectives for the treatment.
  Ellie broke down the technique in a way to help you understand how and
why it does works so you can pass that along to your clients to make
that educated choice. I hold several professional licenses myself and I
am always looking for up-to-date treatments to offer clients.  I look
forward to additional instruction from Ellie as I know she has some in
the works!

Thanks again!

This is a 80 minute treatment where a series of essentials oils are dropped on the back to create a calming of the central nervous system, combined with massage and energy work to align the energy centers of the body. Essential Energy massage is a healing technique using pure essential oils. This treatment combines aromatherapy, massage, tuning forks and moist heat to create healing and cleansing through structural and electrical alignment to the body. The purpose of the therapy is to bring total balance, harmony, and over all well-being.
