Therapeutic Face Painting:
De-stress & Become a Creation
Words from the experienced...
- "Cheryl combines traditional massage techniques and painting into a relaxing, therapeutic, and artistic experience. Beginning with a facial massage, instructed relaxation techniques, and delicate music, Cheryl made me feel completely comfortable throughout the entire experience. There was a seamless transition from the massage to the painting, the strokes of the brush mimicking the hand, with a slight temperature change from the coldness of the paint. With my eyes closed throughout, I could imagine the colors applied to my face with the rhythmic shapes and brushstrokes. Each part of the experience slowly transitioned to the next and by the end, my whole body felt weighted to the ground, feeling willowy and airy by the time I stood up. Definitely a fantastic experience to eliminate stress and relax the body and mind."
- "In my experience with Cheryl and her attempt to put me in a relaxed state, was extremely successful and invigorating. I would have to say, my favorite part of the whole experience was the face massage before the painting, bagan. It helped release any sort of "bad" that I tend to hold on my face everyday. While Cheryl was painting my face, we listened to a kind of music that was so incredibly relaxing; the sound, or the octave that the Earth is naturally at I think it was. Also, during the painting, I was picturing what my face was looking like and the colors she was using. When she was done, the energy that my face held was beautiful and peaceful. She has an amazing talent for bringing the good and natural out of people."
- "What an amazing experience it was having my face painted! Relaxing, calming, and rejuvenating all at once; and I didn't even know that was possible. The techniques you used combined artistic vision with eastern meditation and healing spirituality. Being the recipient of all of that focused energy was compelling for me. The combination of your technique experience and spiritual sensitivity was a great and unexpected addition to my day and a great respite during an intense and overwhelming week. Thank you for the chance to participate in your healing artistry and touch. It was an experience that helped to center my thoughts and revitalize my work week."
- "I enjoyed my face painting experience very much. The music being played put me into a very calm state and took me away from the things going on around me. I felt like I was meditating. I'm excited to see how the paintings look completed because I think they will convey the experience in an interesting way. "
