5Faces Protocol

5Faces Protocol

 
5Faces is a revolutionary face care program designed to help clients reclaim their health and their true beauty, one step at a time. Just as we are taking back our bodies and our own self-determination, we are taking back our faces. Our process helps each client discover what it means to have a youthful, radiant and healthy face.

It is a proprietary, holistic, protocol based on the founder’s background in Physiotherapy and acupuncture using the following 5 steps in each session.

  1. Breathe
  2. Holistic Cosmetic Acupuncture
  3. Laser
  4. Hands-on Techniques
  5. Education & Exercises

Breathe

The five steps of 5Faces have been developed based on science, research and knowledge of anatomy. They are made to care for the health of your face, empowering you to accomplish the looks you want

Although our breathing is an automatic function, it’s not uncommon for people to either breathe too quickly, too shallowly, or hold their breath due to high levels of stress in modern society. Breathing properly takes practice and technique. 

The goal is to learn to relax your neck, shoulders and chest and to breathe with the diaphragm muscle. When done correctly the belly and back expand below the ribs.

Correct diaphragmatic breathing balances the autonomic nervous system which is the master computer of the body, balancing all your systems ie blood pressure, heart, blood sugars etc. When we don’t breathe properly, we deplete our bodies of the proper oxygen mixture, which is vital for detoxifying our bodies, reducing stress, improving brain functions among many other benefits.

Holistic Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a holistic alternative to Botox that offers long-term results and health benefits. Botox is an unnatural process that actually accelerates the natural process of muscle atrophy and wrinkle formation in the face. When muscles become paralyzed, surrounding muscles must work harder to support the face, speeding up the wrinkle formation in those areas. The injections themselves offer temporary relief, which means patients are required to continually visit their practitioner for injections in a never-ending process that leaves the face looking less than desirable.

Cosmetic Acupuncture, on the other hand, addresses a myriad of issues that go beyond just the aging process, product-free. It takes a holistic approach by stimulating certain muscle groups so that it will improve over time rather than wearing off like Botox.

We specialize in treating those who have undergone Botox treatments and wish to find healthier options to maintain a youthful appearance.

Laser

5Faces doesn’t just address your skin; we focus on your muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, veins and lymphatic system. Traditional skincare treatments have neglected these areas of your face, leading to the appearance of aging skin and other health-related issues.

Low-level light laser has been used since the 1800s. It provides compromised cells with the energy to regain and restore cellular vitality, naturally.  The low-level light laser uses comforting natural light and heat, which means no harmful UV rays! Its powerful, deeply penetrating wavelengths are absorbed into the skin and increase the fuel that drives all cells. This boost of cellular energy results in a cascade of metabolic events leading to an increase in microcirculation and tissue repair.

Hands-on Techniques

The hands-on techniques are designed to restore vitality and a natural appearance to your face once again. Similar to the health of your body, the health of your face can be revitalized with hands-on techniques. These techniques are a vital step in repairing any damage to the face.

95% of the techniques used at 5Faces are free once you’ve learned them. Botox treatments, on the other hand, cost approximately anywhere between $500 and up, depending on the number of units used per visit and require 3 – 4 visits per year to combat the effects wearing off. It’s a highly addictive process and once started most people can’t stop.

Through techniques and treatments, including acupuncture, c-shape and scrabbling, you can achieve lasting youth and health.

The C-Shape exercise relaxes the over-toned facial muscles. It works on releasing the interstitium organ and atrophied, shrunken muscles. When facial muscles are too tight, they prevent blood and nerve flow. This exercise must be done at home to increase the effectiveness.

Scrabbling helps prevent the binding-down of connective tissue on your wrinkles. This binding-down blocks the free flow of toxins in the lymphatic system of your face. These toxins should flow from the midline of your face, out to your ear, and be disposed of in the jugular vein.  Our faces have quite literally been fighting for their lives

Education & Exercises

Large corporations are in the business of having you hooked on their services and products for years – 5Faces is in the business of improving your life and health, long-term.

Our goal is to educate our clients on how to care for the health and shape of their face on their own. We walk our clients through each exercise and encourage them to develop their own daily practice.

With the tools and the fundamentals provided, you will be able to do your own repair work at home. This means you have the power to heal yourself for life!

C-Shape and Scrabbling are important exercises that improve the Autonomic Nervous System and revitalize your youthful looks and health.

At 5Faces, we believe that we all have the right to control what happens to our faces, just as much as the right to control what happens to our bodies. Call 778.940.6988 to begin your 5Faces journey today!
