The Power of Your Face: The Key to Radiant & Natural Rejuvenation Through Healing Trauma

Is hidden trauma aging your clients’ faces?

What can you do to help that underlying trauma to release so that the inner radiance can emerge?

And why is working with the face so key to healing old trauma patterns?

Working strategically with the face has the power to calm and regulate the nervous system and to create deeper levels of healing while clients simply think they’re coming to rejuvenate. J

The face has been proven through modern neuroscience research, especially by Dr. Stephen Porges and his Polyvagal Theory, to be central to our co-regulation, self-regulation and sense of bonding, connection and safety.
When you enhance what Porges calls Social Engagement, you tap into untold benefits and an inner sense of joy and radiance.

Working compassionately with your own face, and helping clients to work with theirs, is a short cut to the Social Engagement System. We call it Neuro Facial Regulation. (A form of self-soothing.)

If you carry old trauma patterns in your face, it affects the way you see the world, and it affects the way others experience you. Trauma can include dental work, head injuries, surgeries and cosmetic interventions such as Botox.

When the flow of qi or energy from your heart to your face gets blocked, because of heart break, emotional or physical abuse, or other kinds of trauma (including birth trauma), the Shen, which is the spirit of the heart in Oriental Medicine, cannot rise into your face, and your face and eyes lack expressivity, luster and sparkle.

When you feel comfortable with your face, your physiology changes rapidly from how you express and relate to others, to your heartbeat, to your breath, to your facial expressions.

We’re ready to share some loving, joyful solutions that can help you personally and also your patients and far reaching community.

Are you ready to “face” and share being the radiant light that you’re here to be?

Join me on June 17th, 2022 at 4:00 PM Pacific.

Susan discovered the power of the face from her first Chinese Medicine teacher in 1974, but she dismissed it as being too frivolous. However recent incredible research in neuroscience has emerged on the importance of working with the face for radiant rejuvenation and healing trauma, along with increased bonding, attachment and connection. So she was inspired to develop a program to help practitioners melt the trauma in their own faces and also help their patients and community to connect and rejuvenate in fun and simple ways.

She co-developed Natural Facial Rejuvenation The Heart and Science of Transformation, with Mary Louise Muller, M.Ed., RCST, RPP, which they been teaching since 2008.
