This wonderfully relaxing treatment may lessen wrinkles and expression lines, tighten facial contours, tone and improve the complexion, release stress and tension in surrounding muscles, soothe tension headaches, eyestrain and stress-related symptoms, enhance feelings of well-being and encourage a positive and confident appearance.
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.
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. 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. 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 and other stress related symptoms.
Although you can see a difference after only one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of 6-8 treatments of 30 minutes, with monthly maintenance treatments thereafter. This treatment uses Eve Taylor pre-blended aromatherapy facial oil and costs £30 for 30 mins.
