is Bellanina Facelift Massage recession friendly?

Postby blissfulbalance on Mon Jun 16, 2008 11:38 am

I have been wanting to learn the Bellanina technique, but have put it on the back burner for a long time. Are those of you who practice this finding a slump in business due to the rising costs of gas, living, etc.? Do you think it is still worthwhile to pursue learning this right now?

I would appreciate your input.

Thanks!

I have a friend who works at the spa where this technique originated. She said clients rave about it all the time, they love it! Sounds like they aren't having any problems with this technique in our current economy...

hmmm, sounds like it could be related to venue and since I am a one woman show, it could be a different story than in a spa with a large clientele. I suppose it could also be location specific as far as the financial demographics in a given area.

Lots to ponder. Thanks for your help.

I've been wanting to learn the Bellanina technique for several years now. I'm also a one woman show and have been wondering how recession proof it is as well. I've been wanting to take the three day workshop in NC but I'm not certain whether it is cost effective in the current economy.

I know this is old, but I've been considering learning this technique within the next year. An instructor at my school is about to be certified to teach the Bellanina Facelift Massage. I looked it up, about $400 to learn this, but would it be worth it?

I work at a salon, the only MT here, and its been slow going but not that I haven't been looking and trying for more clients. My boss keeps asking me to do facials, which I know I can't, then I find out she's been getting this Facelift Massage, thinking it was just a regular facial from another MT. So now, I'm considering doing this. But are people really into this now? I hear it feels amazing, but have never had it done yet.

Just a thought, since I don't know anything specific about this particular massage work. Have you considered getting one from the therapist you boss is going to, to see what you think about it? It may be easier to make a decision, if you have an hands on application.
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, leading to the most amazing view. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through valleys tinkling with bells...
