A letter from the director...
"As a Massage Therapist, I felt the repetitive strain on my body from doing massage would shorten the life of my career. So, in 1994, I trained with The Belaví Institute [now Bellanina Institute] to become a Facelift Massage Specialist and incorporated Facelift Massage into my practice. Within a year, from a minimal amount of advertising and word of mouth, I successfully changed my massage practice to approximately 40% Facelift Massage services.

What that meant in terms of Facelift Massage income was about $1500 each month, plus additional income from product sales. My body was less tired at the end of the day, having sat and relaxed through a couple of Facelift Massage sessions. I charged $75 for a 1-1/4 hour session and offered a discount on a series of 12 at $70 each. Facelift Massage is a great vehicle for repeat business. Due to my rapid business growth and interest in teaching Facelift Massage, I became a Facelift Massage Certified Trainer in 1997 and the National Training Director in 1998. In 2002, I purchased The Belaví Institute and changed its name to Bellanina Institute, upon Belle Tuckerman's semi-retirement...Facelift Massage sure did impact my career!

Facelift Massage is not a 'facial,' but rather a massage-oriented treatment for the face. This class has been approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork as a continuing education provider and 24 contact hours of CE Credit are awarded for completion of this class. Facelift Massage is relatively new to the world of bodywork, though previously held in high regard by the 'upper class' and movie industry as beauty enhancement or an alternative or preventative measure to surgery. As the masses of baby boomers move into their prime, this service is gaining notoriety and favor. It is easy to see the business potential, both now and in the future!

Bellanina Institute (formerly The Belaví Institute) has trained thousands of people nationally who are well on their way to success. I hope you join me, or one of our Certified Bellanina Facelift Massage Trainers around the world, for a 3-day seminar and become one of the new body care practitioners in your area to offer this valuable service."
