Natural Face Massage
This revolutionary face massage tones and lifts facial muscles, increases skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles, the perpetual frown and dreaded under-eyes bags and improves skin complexion.
It is wonderful for relaxing and releasing stress, leaving you feeling and looking your best.
Although you can see a difference after only one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of 6 to 10 weekly treatments. Maintenance treatments every fortnight or monthly are usually recommended. A unique aspect of this technique is that it does not involve the use of any oils, creams or equipment. This makes it an ideal treatment for anyone suffering from allergies to products. Discounts are available when a course of treatments is booked.
Ageing is a natural process, but its visible signs can be delayed and further damage in the future can be prevented. Facial Rejuvenation can do much to extend the appearance of youth and beauty by means of exclusive massage techniques, lymphatic drainage, acupressure, energy balancing and facial exercises.
The well-established techniques used come from Ayurveda (‘the science of life’), an ancient Indian healing system that places great emphasis on massage as being essential to health and beauty.
The massage strokes exfoliate and ‘iron out’ lines and wrinkles, improve circulation and elimination, release restrictions in the connective tissue (collagen and elastin) and lift the facial muscles. Face lift massage will also leave you feeling deeply relaxed, energized and with a more positive mental attitude.
How does it work?
Tension can very easily build up in our facial muscles without us realising it. Over a period of time, habitual thoughts and emotions can lock themselves into expressions on our faces – particularly around the eyes and mouth. This can be exacerbated by additional factors such as sun, pollution, alcohol, poor diet, lack of sleep, the effects of gravity and every day stresses and strains. Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.
Using repetitive finger movements along each wrinkle and also working on the underlying facial muscles, can relieve tension in the muscles of the face, neck, and scalp, smoothing away lines and bringing elasticity back to your skin.
Natural Face Lift Massage can relieve tension in areas you had no idea were tense. Energy balancing techniques bring a deep feeling of relaxation to the whole body and the noticeable effects can quickly be seen on the face.
Facial Rejuvenation also works on the structure of the skin, to ease restrictions and lift up the face. Most of the skin is made up of connective tissue, which is formed from fibers of proteins such as collagen and elastin. These fibers weave together to form a flexible web-like structure. In younger tissue, the fibers slide past each other freely, giving suppleness and flexibility. But over time, toxic by-products build up in the skin, causing fibers to lock together, so that the skin loses much of its mobility.
Facial Rejuvenation helps to release the tissues, gently allowing the connective tissue to regain its freedom and elasticity.
During the treatment, over ninety face and neck muscles are systematically massaged. Acupressure points are activated, stimulating energy flow and releasing deep-seated tension, freeing layers of muscle and connective tissue (8 of the 12 major energy meridians have points on the face!). Ayurvedic ‘smoothing’ techniques are used so that circulation and elimination are improved and the tissues can glide smoothly over the deeper layers of muscle and bone. The whole process has been described as a bit like ironing out the creases, making the skin feel smoother and softer and improving the complexion and skin tone.
Although you can see a difference after only one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of 6-8, one hour weekly treatments depending on each individually assessed person – taking account of age, skin condition and lifestyle factors. Regular top up treatments are recommended once the initial course is completed.
This wonderfully relaxing treatment lessens wrinkles and expression lines, tightens facial contours, tones and improves the complexion, releases stress and tension in surrounding muscles, soothes tension headaches, eyestrain and stress-related symptoms, enhances feelings of well-being and encourages a positive and confident appearance.
Natural Face Lift Massage proves that you don’t need to undergo expensive procedures (often carrying negative side effects) in order to look younger. Wrinkles and expression lines are eased to leave a more vibrant, youthful appearance. Skin becomes softer, eyes appear brighter and the complexion looks fresher and more toned. Bagginess and puffiness around eyes and chin are reduced and flexibility and mobility return to the face. As well as the visible benefits, clients often report feeling more relaxed and positive, sleeping better and obtaining relief from headaches, TMJ syndrome and other stress related symptoms.
Just as the body benefits from exercise, so too can the face and a qualified therapist will be able to recommend specific exercises to tone areas of the face that cause concern. Skin care and common sense dietary advice will also be given and follow up sessions every 4-6 weeks are usually recommended to maintain the benefits.
