Experience unmatched relaxation through specialized facial massage therapy services provided by Leona Alexander, a distinguished massage therapist with over three decades of expertise. Her journey in massage therapy commenced in 1989 at the esteemed Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy in Toronto. Over the years, her dedication to excellence led her to specialize extensively in facial massage techniques, culminating in her graduation from The International Sculptural Face Lifting Academy under the renowned Yakov Gershkovich in 2023.

Leona’s clinic offers an array of Facial Massages:

  • Sculptural Face Lifting Massage: This groundbreaking technique, born from Leona’s advanced training, transcends surface treatments to sculpt and rejuvenate facial structures, yielding a more youthful appearance.
  • TMJ Massage: Tailored to alleviate discomfort and enhance functionality, ideal for clients experiencing jaw pain, tension headaches, or TMJ disorders.
  • Deep Tissue Face Massage: Delving into deeper facial muscles, this technique releases entrenched tension, boosts blood circulation, and revitalizes skin tone, ideal for relieving stress and fatigue in facial muscles.

Leona’s TMJ Massage Therapy employs a gentle touch to ease tension in the jaw area, promoting pain relief and overall well-being. This therapeutic approach addresses soft tissue restrictions around the temporomandibular joint, providing preventive health benefits and bolstering resilience against various medical issues.

Practitioners use subtle pressure to address restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding the temporomandibular joint. This therapeutic approach is valued for its preventive health benefits, contributing to increased resilience against various medical problems.

Sculptural Face Lifting (SFL)

Introducing Sculptural Face Lifting (SFL) – an innovative method to rejuvenate and redefine facial, neck, and décolletage contours by releasing stored emotions within muscles. This natural technique, crucial for alleviating tension-related restrictions, strengthens, tones, and balances facial structures. Central to this approach is intra-oral work, known as Buccal technique, targeting supportive muscles inside the mouth through gentle massages, releasing tension and improving jaw and nasal passage tightness, thereby enhancing facial muscle oxygenation.

Developed by Yakov Gershkovich, a renowned specialist in facial aesthetics, SFL, praised by celebrities and beauty experts, offers natural rejuvenation and facial manipulation without injections or fillers. Unlike Botox, freezing muscles, SFL sculpts artistically through skilled hands, optionally combinable with other procedures for swift, effective, and natural rejuvenation.

Sculptural Facial Massage Therapy: What To Expect From The Procedure

Sculptural facial massage therapy is the ultimate anti-aging facial treatment, providing a facelift without needing injections or surgery. This dynamic lift procedure targets the face's deep, underlying support muscles and incorporates a powerful energy technique with osteopathic effects to tone and lift these muscles. Simultaneously, facial massage therapy helps release negative emotions that can influence the structure of our face.

During the sculptural massage, the Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) focuses on the underlying muscles responsible for specific signs of aging, such as the double chin, puffy eyelids, lowered mouth corners, and lines between the eyebrows. The massage is designed to address and improve these areas.

Next comes the buccal massage, a deep tissue and intra-oral technique that further combats signs of aging without the use of needles or surgical interventions. This method requires a deep understanding of the anatomical structures of the face and skilled manipulation of each individual muscle. To fully restore muscle function, a mini TMJ (temporomandibular joint) treatment follows.

For more long-lasting results, we recommend a complete course of 6-10 facial massage therapy procedures, scheduled once a week, followed by regular monthly maintenance sessions. This will help sustain the achieved results over time.
