Shizuka New York in American Spa Magazine

Shizuka New York Day Spa is mentioned in American Spa Magazine’s May 2015 issue!

The Geisha Facial is still getting media buzz, almost as much as it did when Shizuka New York Day Spa owner, Shizuka Bernstein, introduced the facial to the beauty and spa industry in 2008.

According to owner and celebrity facialist Shizuka Bernstein, geishas relied on frequent facials using nightingale droppings to not only remove makeup but also to brighten and heal their skin. She attributes the ingredient’s natural enzymes and guanine to helping impart a pearly luster to the skin.

In the article, spa consultant Peter Anderson speaks to how the origin of The Geisha Facial stems from ancient Japanese culture and how “that predates a modern understanding of skincare”.

Many of these facials have their roots in culture and chemistry that predates a modern understanding of skincare.

The usage of nightingale droppings in The Geisha Facial isn’t the facial’s only element with ancient Japanese origins. A recent article on Vogue.com highlights an ancient Japanese skincare technique known as double-cleansing. The Geisha Facial (and all other SNY facials) incorporates double-cleansing using the all-natural products from the Shizuka New York Skincare System to thoroughly cleanse and refresh the skin before the nightingale droppings are applied. This technique maximizes the “Geisha Glow” effect following the facial.

Bird poo? No, seriously! The Daily Mail reports that the former pop star’s glossy skin is all about bird poop and smearing it on her face. Also known as the Geisha facial, it is an ancient Japanese beauty practice that uses nightingale droppings to form a cleansing paste. Sounds gross, but it works. What’s more, celebrities (including Posh’s hubby David Beckham) are all about it today as it leaves the skin super shiny and smooth.

The Mail Online’s Claudia Connell Finds That The Geisha Facial Beats Botox

The anti-aging benefits of The Geisha Facial® have been garnering acclaim from near and far since its inception January 1st, 2008 when Shizuka Bernstein introduced it to the beauty world. Benefits of this controversial treatment include: reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, firmer skin, brighter and more even complexion. And as our most recent reviewer states in The Daily Mail that the Geisha Facial would even “beat botox”:

I notice a definite improvement in my dark circles and the sun damage marks on my forehead. I also have bad scarring on my chest following an unfortunate  incident with hot oil and a chip pan some years ago and the marks there are also significantly reduced.

Two days later, I meet a friend for her birthday lunch and she tells me I look glowing before miming a needle going into my forehead to suggest I’ve had Botox. But I haven’t actually had any for more than a year.

Since I reckon Botox takes around five years off my face and that my friend thinks the nightingale droppings have done the same, that’s a result I am more than pleased with.”

If botox and The Geisha Facial both take 5 years off the face, in a show down, here’s 5 reasons The Geisha Facial would beat Botox:

5 reasons why The Geisha Facial® Beats Botox

1. All-natural Alternative

The Geisha facial involves no needles, just bird poop. The amino acid present in the guanine enzyme works to brighten skin, lightening dark circles and hyperpigmentation. It also tightens skin and is what gives it that signature Geisha Facial *glow* that lasts for days.

Related blog post: The Associated Press Reports on The Geisha “bird poop” Facial®

2. Uplifting Benefits of a Facial

Feeling refreshed will make you look it too. Facials aren’t just about cleansing, they also help boost immunity and relieve stress. The Geisha Facial is designed to pamper you and melt away stress. Finding the time to relax may be challenging for most, but it can actually trim years off your face.  Think about the last time you felt refreshed, didn’t you also look it? Our skilled technicians perform this treatment under the highest standards to make you feel like you are on cloud 9.

3. Lower Price tag

The Geisha Facial is priced at $180 per treatment. Every treatment builds upon the other to improve skin elasticity and even out complexion. If you receive a facial once a month, the price tag would still be less than a standard botox injection.

4. Natural Route

The original Geisha Facial incorporates the Shizuka new york Skincare System to cleanse, brighten, and tone the face. These products are made of all natural ingredients sourced directly from Japan such as sake, fermented soybeans, mushrooms, and green tea. They are specially designed to bring you a taste of Japan in a bottle. Escape to Mount Fuji without leaving the city!

5. Celebrity Status

Aside from it being a good conversation piece, sleep better knowing you’ve overcome your fear of strange things and that bizarre beauty has got nothing on you now. And hey you now run with the likes of celebrities like Tom Cruise and Victoria Beckham.

 Cruise is “proud” of himself for taking the natural route. Tom [Cruise] doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery .. the [Geisha Facial] results have been fantastic.” ~ Now Magazine

Rachael Bletchly’s Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

Rachael Bletchly's Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

A writer for the The Daily Mirror, a UK publication, recently wrote a review about a facial performed by a spa in London, England that’s strikingly similar to Shizuka new york’s Geisha Facial® .

While other spas around the world may imitate The Geisha Facial®, the original was born right here in New York City by Shizuka Bernstein and her husband, the dermatologist, Dr. Robert M. Bernstein. We still think it’s worth responding to her review. Everyone’s entitled to an opinion, right?!

While some may believe the facial is effective but not worth the price point, we beg to differ. The years of research Shizuka and her husband put into the treatment process ensures it’s “scientifically correct” and effective for balancing out skin tone, deepening hydration, and to ensure it’s facial-worthy, it’s a highly relaxing and calming experience.

As a master aesthetician herself, Shizuka ensures that every Geisha Facial® is performed with techniques that fit her standard of care and precision for each and every client. “I want to bring Japanese beauty secrets to all my clients so that their skin may benefit from all-natural Japanese ingredients without having to  leave the city. I’m not happy until my clients are satisfied with the results”, says Shizuka.

Every Geisha Facial® incorporates all-natural ingredients sourced directly from Japan like green tea, sake, and Mount Fuji water. With the help of Shizuka new york’s highly trained facialists, you’ll be transported to Japan and back in little under an hour!

The Geisha Facial® mentioned in The Times of India

Times of India Logo edited

The Times of India included Shizuka new york Day Spa’s The Geisha Facial® in its list of bizarre facials that deliver ‘diva-approved’ results!

Celebrity fans of the facial are Tom Cruise and Victoria and David Beckham.

 

Here’s what The Times of India had to say:

 

Glow with bird poop
If there is something other, that Tom Cruise is known to advocate for after Scientology, it’s the bird poop facial. Not one for the botox and surgeries, rubbing a concoction of nightingale poop, rice bran and water gives his face the shine that he is looking for. The nightingale poop facial, also known as the Geisha facial as it originates from Japan, is known to exfoliate the dirt from the skin and leave it shining and squeaky clean. Guess who introduced him to the ways of the nightingale? Good friend David Beckham. He and his wife, Posh are known to be high on the treatment too.

Health Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna Heat

A recent article in InTouch Weekly claims The Biggest Loser winner, Rachel Frederickson, enlisted the use of a far infrared sauna to melt off those prized pounds before the finale’s final weigh in.

The way this works is the far infrared sauna raises the body’s core temperature which in turn raises the heartbeat and burns calories. Dr. Oz is a big proponent of the infrared sauna heat for weight loss. He explains the weight loss benefits of the far infrared sauna on the Oprah Show.

 

While our clients use our NYC Far Infrared Sauna for weight loss, they also use it for detox and relaxation as well.

Health benefits of Far Infrared Sauna Heat:

–          Speeds up metabolism

–          Increases detoxification

–          Improves cardiovascular system

–          Relieves pain (great for achy muscles, joints)

–          Aids in weight loss and removal of cellulite

–          Benefits skin (great for acne, eczema, psoriasis, rough skin)

–          Strengthens immune system

 

How Does Far Infrared Sauna Heat Work?

The sauna’s infrared radiation utilizes the same electromagnetic spectrum that’s emitted from the the sun without the UV component. The sauna’s infrared radiation penetrates the skin from 1.5 to 3.5 inches heating blood vessels and capillaries to help release toxins through sweat.

The electromagnetic heat emitted from the far infrared sauna directly heats the user so the sauna’s temperature usually doesn’t rise above 130°F. Reportedly, because infrared radiation therapy heats the body from the inside, 17% more toxins are released into the blood stream than when using a traditional sauna.

Celebrated Anti-Aging Facial in New York City: The Geisha Facial®

The Business Standard

 

India’s newspaper, The Business Standard, reports on the efficacy of Anti-Aging Facials and touts Shizuka new york’s The Geisha Facial® in their article titled: Anti-Aging Facials can Save you from Losing that Youthful Appearance.

“Manhattan’s Shizuka New York Day Spa specializes in the Nightingale facial in which bird droppings, which removes dead cells, are slathered onto a client’s face to give a youthful appearance.”

 

With a wide range of facials and treatments available to choose from, Shizuka Bernstein advises on the best time to receive an anti-aging facial:

“Basically, anti-aging facials are unnecessary before the age of 25. These treatments are most effective once the skin begins to age, which is generally in someone’s 30’s (depending on their lifestyle, genetics, etc.). With that said, it’s never too late to begin an anti-aging regimen.”

How to Hydrate Dry Skin Naturally

Shizuka Bernstein in NY Weekly Japion

Cover story in NY Weekly Japion featuring Shizuka’s tips for hydrating dry winter skin naturally.

NY Weekly Japion featured Shizuka Bernstein, owner of SHIZUKA new york Day Spa, in their January 10th, 2014 issue.

In the article, Shizuka offers DIY skincare tips to hydrate dry skin naturally and effectively at home for plump skin throughout the winter months.

 

Follow these steps to nourish and hydrate dry skin naturally:

1. After washing your face, warm a wet towel in the microwave and wrap it around the face. This will open pores and will feel very relaxing.

2. Next, massage the face with jojoba oil, almond oil, and 1-2 drops of essential oil. Use upward circular movements whenever performing a facial massage to help lift and rejuvenate the skin.

3. Make a face mask by mixing together lemon juice, honey, and a small amount of grated apple. Shizuka says, “the acid from the apple will help slough away dead skin”. Leave on for 3-5 minutes before washing away.

4. Wrap the face with another hot towel to wipe away any excess from the mask and warm the skin.

5. Finish by applying a moisturizer that’s been chilled in the refrigerator. This tightens pores while sealing in moisture.

 

Additionally, Shizuka suggests taking daily measures to ensure skin stays hydrated such as using a humidifier and drinking water after consuming alcohol.

 

For a related spa treatment, SHIZUKA New York Day Spa offers the Plant Stem Cell Facial ($ 160). This facial combines Naturopathica’s powerful anti-ager, Plant Stem Cell Serum, with ultrasonic and microcurrent technologies for a deeply hydrating facial–this facial is perfect for hydrating dry winter skin!
