August 8, 2017 Meeting
Our August speaker is Kelly Lott, a leading spokesperson for natural and holistic treatments for migraines and headaches, as well as a nationwide certified massage instructor. Kelly’s topic is Face Toning Massage. She will demonstrate, and we will learn, a 30-minute hydrotherapy face toning massage treatment. Face Toning Massage is a sequential series of massage strokes that affect the facial muscles and neck. Warm, moist towels are also used. The treatment is delivered while seated, a nice change of pace for massage therapists! This treatment has helped clients with Bell’s palsy, nerve damage and scarring. The method has improved practice for many massage therapists’ tired hands.

Attendees will receive extensive how-to-handouts, four facial towels and facial massage sample supplies. After Kelly’s demonstration, attendees will practice and exchange a Face Toning Massage with a partner. We will see and feel the difference after only one treatment.


In addition, attendees should not wear base makeup or perfume/cologne and should bring:

  • One set of sheets
  • Bolster
  • One bath towel
  • One hand towel
  • One medium size metal bowl or square bake pan


Don’t miss this great opportunity to expand your practice and give your hands a rest!
