Aloha! My name is
Sounds like ‘Tongue-Vee Yang.’
I am a facial massage therapist, skincare specialist and makeup artist from New York City, with a focus on biochemical processes of the skin and body. I specialize in advanced facial massages and holistic science-based facial treatments to provide a safe, non-invasive alternative for the skin. My philosophy for skincare is to simply bring awareness to oneself and supporting the skin’s complex functions.
After overcoming bipolar disorder, I realized that good mental health is imperative to my life. My family’s healthcare struggles, along with my mental health awareness have inspired me to help others through my love of skincare. Years later, as a licensed esthetician working in Manhattan, I was given a rare opportunity to travel the world. I boldly seized this opportunity and went in search of unique techniques in over seven different countries.
During my travels, I was lucky enough to study in Paris with world-renowned facialist, Joëlle Cioccio. There, I received training and practice of Madame Cioccio's sustainable approach to respecting the skin’s ecosystem as well as her carefully examined knowledge of the epidermis.
Along the way, I traveled to my birth country of Vietnam, where I met Bui Quoc Chau, a noted professor and acupuncturist. He taught me the art of facial reflexology - a skillful manipulation of points in the face linked to body organs. I had the privilege of treating Vietnamese locals in Saigon with a wide-range of physical ailments and skin conditions.
