Facial Massage & Modality Descriptions & Benefits
Facial, Neck, Shoulder & Scalp Relaxation Massage
Designed to relieve tension and stress as well as improve circulation.
Along the superficial parts of the meridian pathways, the Qi energy collect in hollows within our between bones and muscles. These are the acupressure points and they are like pools of energy. Neurochemicals, called endorphins are released when the points are stimulated. Activating these pressure points cause the muscles to relax and the body makes an adjustment toward balance. Pressure point stimulation benefits both locally as well as reflexive coordinating with internal organs.
Manual lymphatic drainage allows the body’s own cleansing mechanism, the lymphatic system, to work to its best ability by removing wastes and toxins, decreasing the likelihood that they will come out through the skin. MLD leaves the skin and eyes brighter, improves circulation, encourages the elimination of waste materials, improves oxygenation, & helps to relieve pain.

Dr. Alkaitis Skin Care
Organic skin care
All products are made 100% from plants. Dr. Alkaitis only formulates with organic, biodynamic or wild crafted herbs, plants, seeds, (sea) vegetables and oils. Naturally all harsh chemicals, synthetics, "plant derived" products, trans fats and GMO's are rigorously excluded. Our ingredients and products are never tested on animals.
High quality ingredients
All ingredients are of an excellent quality and sourced from the world’s most pristine places. Dr. Alkaitis sources all plants and ingredients only from growers and wild crafters he personally knows and trusts. He developed these relationships over many years of professional and personal interaction. Dr. Alkaitis monitors the quality of their practices and procedures strictly. We call this process: 'Boutique Agriculture'.
Raw skin care
All Dr. Alkaitis' products are raw, meaning they are never heated above body temperature. This allows all the beautiful ingredients to remain ‘living’ and in turn give full therapeutic benefits to your skin. 100% certified organic Aloe Vera is the base of our products, not water.
Result Oriented Skin Care
Dr. Alkaitis comprehensively studied the skin’s tasks, its interaction with and reactions to various influences. He formulates his products with exactly the nutrients your skin needs to perform those tasks. When you ‘feed’ your skin these high quality nutrients, your skin will be able to perform its tasks in the best way possible. Properly nourished, your skin will sigh with relief and reward you by radiating a healthy glow.
"Feeling a bit spoiled and reset: yesterday I was the lucky recipient of an amazing facial by Bethany at Yoga4. I have to admit that until recently I had no idea that a facial could be far more than skincare. Geez- where to start....I was pretty much jello after scalp, shoulder and arm massage, could feel the improved lymphatic flow (good for my tricky sinuses), great nervous system resetting work, and that doesn't even get into the skincare benefits from uplifting essential oils and whole plant based products. My daughter actually noticed the glow immediately and kept smelling me and pretending to faint in bliss. Thanks Bethany!" D.S.

"My two daughters and I recently visited Yoga4 Studio while we were in Lake Leelanau for a mother/daughter weekend getaway. The service that we received was exceptional! The staff at Yoga4 were kind, knowledgeable, professional and capable. The studio was clean and pleasant with a calming aura. We each had facials and massages and I can honestly say that the facial I received was the best facial I’ve ever had. My massage was top-notch and the therapist made it a point to show me some stretches that I can do to relieve my pain on a daily basis. These professionals truly care about their clients. All three of us had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Yoga4 Studio if you’re ever in the area! We give it 5 stars!" K.H.
