Yakov Gershkovich: The God of Facial Massage

You guys, I’m so excited to share this with you. Everyone knows I’m all about facial massage, but this was next level.

Yakov Gershkovich is seriously my idol. He’s from Russia & we’ve been messaging ever since I found his Instagram account a year ago. He came to LA to teach his Sculptural Face Lifting technique & he did it on me! I even brought my facialist, Mo, up to LA so she could experience his magic touch.

He does so much different body work. At one point he held my hand, & his energy channeled through me into the C3 in my back & all of the sudden I felt relief. I can’t explain it, but that’s what happened.

He has this kind of energy that I’ve never experienced before. It’s super powerful. He was able to work on my face, jaw & neck in a way that was sculpting me, but also working with my energy.

If you haven’t experienced facial massage or lymphatic drainage, it’s a MUST. It’s something that everyone needs to try.

( Just an FYI, the questions are answered by his translator. )

Let’s get right into facial massage with the ultimate pro, Yakov Gershkovich:

+ Introduce yourself & your expertise:

Yakov Gershkovich is the author, creator and master trainer of the Sculptural Face Lifting Method. He is the leading specialist in the field of facial aesthetics in Israel and has been a sought-after teacher world-wide since 2010. Yakov has studied extensively in Israel, Russia, Lithuania and France and been practicing different styles of massage for over 16 years. For many years Yakov was looking for a fast and efficient method of natural rejuvenation without the use of injections or surgery. He has tried a variety of different methods, techniques and styles of massage to create Sculptural Face Lifting  – a unique method that gives effective results, visible even after the first treatment.

+ Why facial manipulation?

The Sculptural Face Lifting Technique propels the internal resources of the body to natural rejuvenation. What’s important is that this procedure also supports tightening and strengthening of the facial musculature, and normalises the client’s psycho-emotional state by releasing inner blocks and melting away anxiety and stress. The skin begins to glow. The face appears more sculptured. Dubbed as a “nature’s answer to Botox”, Sculptural Face Lifting is praised by beauty bloggers, A-list celebrities, actors and media personalities as well as thousands of ordinary women who chose this method to stay young and beautiful.

+ How is your technique unique?

Yakov’s method is performed without the use of surgery and injections – it is done manually by toning, strengthening and relaxing the basic facial muscles. As a result, facial muscles relax and muscle tone returns to normal; spasms are removed, which in turn restores the natural posture of the face. Appearance and elasticity of the skin improves via improved blood circulation, stimulating cell turnover and regeneration.

+ What can we do at home to get a similar effect?

We offer a video course in self-massage that you can practice at home.

+ 3 tips for someone who’s interested in doing facial manipulation on a daily basis?

The main thing is routine. It is crucial that you work on your face every day to get lasting results. It’s like going to a gym – you can’t expect to have a strong fit body just by visiting the gym once a month – you have to work on it daily. A good skincare routine is another must. Your skin should be thoroughly cleaned before you touch your face.

Find Yakov on Facebook ( here & here ), Instagram, YouTube or his website.
