YAMUNA® SAVE FACE
Yamuna created this work after she reached the age that so many women around her were having cosmetic surgery or using Botox and other injectables to prevent aging in the face. She took her same philosophy of stimulating and aligning bone that works so successfully in other parts of the body, to focus on the face.
Bone loss occurs more rapidly in the face than in other parts of the body and so she began to work on stimulating the bones of the face, then realigning them and finally working the muscles to work correctly with the bone structure. The results were more than she anticipated.
Years of repetitive stress patterns melting away relaxed the face and so many of the tension producing patterns began to resolve themselves. TMJ problems, were reported to be greatly improved. Sinus congestion and sinus headaches were radically improved and often corrected after years of suffering. Eye strain from overuse, reduced dramatically. What Yamuna hoped would be more of a vanity treatment to rid the face of wrinkles and improve skin quality turned out to be so much deeper and more profound. Through realigning the bones of the face, the shoulders relaxed and the hips and pelvis realigned!
As with all of the Yamuna work, she wanted this to be a treatment that everyone could learn to do on themselves at home or in a group class. She also developed the work for professional use as a private treatment performed by a trained Yamuna practitioner. In this session the practitioner is able to focus the treatment based on the specific needs of the person. This treatment can be done as a solo treatment or in combination with a facial. The practitioner can then teach the client how to work at home.
What was also seen was that on younger girls, the work was so much more dramatically visible. Once the stress patterns were reduced, so were the beginning of wrinkles! The younger someone starts this work the better chance they have of maintaining a wrinkle free relaxed face through the decades!This is a must for both men and women of every age who are self motivated and like to do work on themselves. We have found that more men than women, love to sign up for this as a private treatment!THE YAMUNA SAVE FACE TRAINING
In this 4 day training you will learn: the basic anatomy of the facial bones and muscles, how to teach a basic Yamuna® Save Face group class, how to work one on one with a person and perform the treatment therapeutically based on the individual needs of the client, and how to work specifically on problems such as TMJ, sinus congestion, and eye strain.REQUIREMENTS
It is essential that you have had some prior experience with YBR®. We offer a 4 hour intensive YBR® class which teaches you all the basic YBR® lines of the body. (We have found that without previous YBR® experience, it is very difficult to understand the focused work on the face.)Upon completion of the course the following must be completed:
3 case studies with before and after photos. You will need to provide an initial assessment of what you see, what changes the person would like to achieve, and what the initial plan of action is. Please be sure to note changes each week including comments from the client and their own observations.
*3 individual case studies-must meet 3 times with each.WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS TRAINING
This is a great supplemental treatment for people who work specifically with the face; such as aestheticians, massage therapists, YBR® instructors, and people who work in spas and wish to have another treatment to offer as an add-on to another treatment such as a facial or a scalp massage.
