Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation Massage
What is Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation Massage?
Facial Rejuvenation Massage is a truly 'holistic' treatment based on ancient Ayurvedic techniques. The treatment incorporates the physical attributes of the face and neck as well as having a big effect on the general well-being of a person. It is holistic which means it soothes and regenerates the mind, body and spirit. The treatment can be used to help keep the muscles toned and the face youthful, but it also helps to clear the mind, energise the circulatory and lymphatic systems and rest the soul and body.
The benefits of Facial rejuvenation include:
- Reduced Stress levels
- Relief from headaches
- Good for sinus draining
- Improved Sleep patterns
- Improved facial skin and muscle tone
The treatment is performed without oils or creams and the entire procedure is performed with the hands. It is a gentle non-invasive approach to looking your best. The treatment works primarily by freeing constrictions within the facial muscles and connective tissue. The treatment which takes an hour begins with relaxation and energy balancing exercises; followed by the activation of specific acupressure points on the face (eight of the twelve major energy meridians have points on the face). Friction movements with varying degrees of pressure are then applied all over the face and neck to detect areas of tension and encourage letting go of habitual facial expressions. Deeper techniques are used to release restrictions in the connective tissue of the dermis and lift the underlying facial muscles of which there are over 90 from the neck upwards. Circulation and elimination are improved and the tissues become more mobile. The same techniques are then repeated on the other side. The treatment finishes with lymphatic drainage, scalp massage and grounding techniques.

During your initial appointment a detailed history about your health, lifestyle, emotional well-being and medication will be taken. This is necessary for me to be able to provide you with a safe, personalised and holistic treatment. All information will be treated confidentially.
The treatment takes place with you lying on a massage couch. You remain fully clothed though it helps if you wear comfortable clothes and a scoop neck top. The treatment is performed on a clean face and no oil or cream is used.
