Students' experience

Apart from being a spectacular massage therapist and facialist, Florence Laval is an amazing teacher and mentor. I'm so proud to follow her Facelift Holistic Experience training. It's the fruit of years of study and experience, combining many holistic approaches and contemporary ones. I really respect her passion and dedication.

The Face Workout Program at Florence Laval Studio was an amazing experience. Florence gives meticulous attention to detail and guides us through the exercises to drain and sculpt the face, step by step. We were required to practice it before moving onto the next set of facial exercises. As the sessions progressed, the improvement was quite visible. Other than the face yoga exercises, Florence also showed us how to effectively use the guasha, cup, quartz roller and mushroom and the Dian Chan rollers for drainage and sculpting. At the end of the session, we were happily suprised as she gave each of us an individual face yoga plan, adapted to our needs. Personally, I found it very useful and can highly recommend it.

It is the experience of kobido facial treatment at Florence Laval Studio that made me want to explore it indepth. And… here I am - on my third module of Holistic Facelift Experience with Florence.
There are scores of courses and trainings that offer facial yoga, facial fitness, facial rejuvenation etc. Every second girl on Instagram or Tik Tok is a guasha expert or skin care expert. So Why Florence Laval? Well, it is a comprehensively structured programme that outlines its specific philosophy and approach, lays scientific foundation, provides theoretic knowledge and then applies all of the above into practice. And... practice is the keyword here.
How to make your fingers dance How to make them flutter like butterflies? How to alternate pace and tempo? How to synchronise movement of the right and left hand? How to create this visual spectacle that is kobido. Not a walk in the park but a serious rigorous training requiring hours of predicated practice. Challenging ? Yes! Intense? Definitely! But also stimulating, inspiring, and rewarding.
Florence is a methodical, patient, generous teacher who best embodies her education program: high standards, rigour, precision, creativity. I feel fortunate to learn from such dedicated passionate professional and look forward to starting to offer the Facelift Holistic Experience to my clients.
