As a graduate of one of the first Face Yoga Method teacher training programs, studying with founder Fumiko Takatsu, Dr. Vickery received an in-depth understanding of the exercises and their functions.
Once certified, Dr. Vickery began offering both individual and group instruction in the Face Yoga Method. “I’m always looking for additional ways to help my patients and community experience radiant health. Face Yoga Method, with its combination of simple exercises and powerful benefits, fitted perfectly into this.”
Face Yoga Method is a series of exercises designed to work the facial muscles to maintain suppleness and youthfulness, combined with breath control and simple meditation for health and relaxation.
By the daily practice of a series of facial exercises, Face Yoga Method relaxes & tones facial muscles and lifts & firms the skin for a natural, non-surgical alternative to facelifts.
Face Yoga Method exercises activate all three layers of the epidermis to increase blood circulation. Increased circulation brings oxygen to the skin for a healthy glowing complexion. Additionally, the exercises reduce tension and may increase collagen and elastin production to give a plumper and firmer look to the skin.
Face Yoga Method uses several approaches – muscle exercises, stretching and visualization – to naturally tighten, tone and brighten your face.
After surviving a serious auto accident, the founder Fumiko Takatsu saw signs of asymmetry on her face. Reasoning that the muscles in her face could be rehabilitated through exercise, she began her journey toward what we now know as Face Yoga Method.
