As part of my training, I actually received this treatment and I can honestly say that this treatment is so much more than a facial massage. So many areas of your face are treated with different methods, there is acupressure, massage and kneading involved.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t relax easily and that I am very skeptical about chakras and energies and all that malarky. However, after my training partner offered me an energy ball as part of the treatment, I do actually believe I saw some form of energy and am convinced enough to look into this more.
Before going into what this treatment could do, lets just clarify what it isn’t.
It isn’t a beauty facial, there are no hot towels or cleansers, it will not open up and clear your pores.
But it is a facial massage with the intention of
- Improving your complexion,
- removing toxins from the face
- preventing and reducing facial lines and wrinkles,
- strengthening and toning the muscles of your face,
- reducing stress,
- relieving insomnia, headaches and eye strain,
- promoting physical and mental relaxation,
- preventing sagging,
- balancing the energy of your whole body promoting over all well being.
All of this is done with massage techniques and acupressure points over approximately 45 minutes.
What should I be aware of?
For all treatments, I will give you a questionnaire to complete. This lets me know about any medical issues you may have and to ensure that any treatment is suitable for you at this time.
I don’t just massage your face, I will need to massage your shoulders and arms and your feet. Yes I am aware it is a facial massage but I ask you to trust me on this. As skin to skin contact is more beneficial in this treatment, you will be asked to remove your upper clothing and ladies will be requested to pull down bra straps so I can apply oil to your arms & upper chest. A towel will be supplied for your modesty and a blanket will cover you as your body temperature is likely to fall as you relax into your massage.
If you do not want your feet touched that is fine, just let me know in advance.
Is this suitable for me?
In the majority of cases yes. This does not mean I think you are wrinkly, far from it, the facial can prevent the ageing process as well as showing a ‘lift’ over a number of treatments and with maintenance, but any massage is a relaxing self care treatment and we all need a little bit of TLC.
Pregnancy: Unfortunately, treatments are not recommended for women in the first 3 months of pregnancy. As I am still new to holistic treatments and learning, I am also being cautious and will not be performing treatments during any stage of pregnancy at the moment.
