Hi.

Welcome to Kosha, a holistic facial studio founded by Anastasia Talan.

In our facials we focus on a massage more than anything else. 

 

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.

 

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.

And now, let me introduce our team:

Julia

Julia has a medical degree from Russia. She used to be a Nurse Practitioner performing injectables but later she understood the great power of massage and became an esthetician. She has a deep knowledge of skincare products, various treatments and can always give you advice on anything skin-related.  Julia specializes in Moroccan, Buccal and lifting massages and has an amazing touch. 

Olga

Olga has always been a fan of everything natural. Her mom taught her to use herbs and oils in her skincare and do a self massage to heal headaches, cramps and even sinuses. Since her childhood, she knew what she is going to do for other people... Olga specializes in Japanese, Lymphatic and Buccal massages and is originally from Belarus.

Iryna

Iryna is a natural healer and knows an ancient osteopathic technique that she learned in Europe. She adds some osteopathy-inspired moves to every facial. Iryna believes that you don't have to get any invasive treatment to look beautiful. Iryna used to get Botox herself, but once she understood there's much safer alternative - massages, she stopped. Now she can prove that to you. Iryna specializes in Buccal and Myofascial  massages.

FAQ

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 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.

Do you do facials on any other body parts?

Sorry, no. I only work with the face and include chest, shoulders and décolletage.
