Welcome to Kosha, a holistic facial studio founded by Anastasia Talan.
In our facials we focus on a massage more than anything else.
I truly believe that standard facials can't solve the main challenge - changes in bones, fascia, muscles and fat tissues as we age. And you can do as many peels that you can, but they just burn the outer layers of the skin and eventually it becomes thin and fragile. With the massage, we are able to approach deeper and manipulate the lymph and blood flow, increase elastin & collagen production, sculpt and lift the muscles.
What does facial massage do? It improves skin suppleness because it reduces and releases muscle tension in the face and jaw. It's powerful enough to release stuck fascia within the layers of the skin. By stimulating rejuvenation and cellular activity, facial massage can help to tighten the skin and underlying muscles and reduce expression lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, the massage promotes blood and lymphatic circulation, increasing the supply of nutrients to the cells and decreasing puffiness. Lastly, it aids in the removal of dead skin cells to reveal a fresh glowing skin. And I personally find it very helpful against my acne.
I know that my mission is to help people, and I was fortunate enough to find the sphere where I can change not only how people feel, but also the way they look. I believe that every skin condition is only a reflection of our inner selves. That's why I prefer "holistic" approach: treating not only a certain skin condition, but the whole body&mind.
I have gone through numerous trainings and workshops. Asia, Europe, India and USA. Originally from Russia I combine the advanced European esthetics with American standards of service and a deeper natural approach.
My buccal technique was featured on Youtube, Netflix and Good Morning Britain.
And now, let me introduce our team:
Where did you learn buccal massage?
I have studied in Russia and USA privately with 2 different teachers and also developed my own technique throughout the years of practice.
Do you teach?
Yes I do. I have an online course as well as in person training. Please check the "training" tab
Do you take new clients?
Occasionally I do but my schedule is very limited for new ppl. I do have other amazing therapists at the spa - and they are easier to get an appointment with. They are all trained in USA & Europe as well as had a private training with me.
Favorite skincare line?
Le Mieux, PureErb, Eminence and, of course, Ko Sha
Buccal Massage paired with Gua Sha and Cupping
Do you do reiki or any other type of energy work?
Yes I always do some type of energy work in my facials. That's why people usually leave me feeling much "lighter". I renew the energy flow and cleanse the aura automatically. That's just my mindset - I can't work with just the body. Same goes for other Kosha practitioners - they are natural healers.
Do you do facials on any other body parts?
Sorry, no. We only work with the face and include chest, shoulders, scalp and décolletage.
