Facial Massage

 

The fact is that with age it becomes not enough to simply moisten and feed the skin, and it's necessary to activate the exchange processes in tissues on a deeper level. The problem is located a bit deeper, namely in the muscles, it is their "toning" that effectively aids the facial procedure's effectiveness.

Sculptural Face Lifting technique is an anti-gravity method designed to lift the face, strengthen its muscles, correct its form and remove unnecessary sagging. This technique was developed by the Israeli cosmetologist and massage therapist Yakov Gershkovich, and quickly gained worldwide popularity.

Sculptural Face Lifting technique does exactly what it spells. In fact, the therapist becomes a skillful sculptor who moulds the client's face, correcting problematic areas and creating ideal, youth-like lines.

 

The method's key to success lies in its simultaneous focus on two different phases: sculptural & deep tissue. During the sculptural phase, the therapist literally sculpts the face anew, getting rid of all excess: double chin, puffy sagging cheeks, misplaced eyelids, lowered mouth corners, wrinkles between the eyebrows, etc. The deep tissue phase is carried out through the oral cavity using especially thin sterile gloves. The muscles are toned in short sessions through different methods, and the client feels like his face is filled from the inside. Combining these techniques leads to an effective non-surgical face lift and, more importantly, is in itself a natural process, which opposes plastic surgeries' tendency to form a new face and ignore natural rejuvenation mechanisms.

You can enjoy and benefit and with just one treatment, however there is a cumulative effect, and you would benefit more fully from a course of treatments.

Benefits of Sculptural Face Lifting:

  • eliminates muscle spasms
  • stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce better quality and quantity of natural collagen and elastin
  • eliminates mimic wrinkles and sagging
  • improves muscle tone
  • improves complexion
  • eliminates swellings, under eye bags and dark circles
  • eliminates antigravity ptosis (upper eyelid drooping)
  • restores contours of the neck, chin and cheeks
  • emphasises cheekbones
  • eliminates blockages, clamps, stress and anxiety

Sculptural Face Lifting is a lot like a fitness course with a personal trainer.

Do not get surprised if after the treatment your friends will wonder where you’ve rested so well or in which clinic you underwent a plastic surgery. People around you won’t suspect that all it takes is skill and extensive knowledge of a therapist who practices this method. Be beautiful!

 

Eastern Acupressure Massage is a truly holistic, deeply relaxing one-on-one treatment that incorporates a unique blend of highly effective techniques drawn from both Japanese Face Massage and Indian Face Massage. It also incorporates complementary techniques from Acupressure and Facial Reflexology - new therapies that are becoming increasingly popular with clients.

The massage involves smoothing and lifting techniques and the use of special acupressure points, which are strategically combined to help improve the complexion and muscle tone, remove toxins from the face and reduce puffiness whilst balancing the life force energy and releasing blockages.

Eastern Acupressure Massage acts as a natural face lift and offers a safe alternative to invasive surgery. The massage produces the equivalent of an acupuncture facial rejuvenation treatment but without the insertion of needles and unlike surgery it has no ill side effects.
This treatment not only helps to reverse signs of ageing but will also leave you feeling relaxed, stress free and at peace with the world. Eastern Acupressure Massage releases stresses and traumas locked deeply into the muscles of the face, head and neck. Our face is often a mask, hiding who we really are, and it takes much energy to maintain this "front". Dropping this mask can be the door to profound relaxation and inner ease.

Organic products are used throughout the massage.

The treatment includes: cleansing - facial massage - application of a custom mask.

The treatment is extremely relaxing, and many clients fall asleep. You can enjoy and benefit and with just one treatment, however there is a cumulative effect, and you would benefit more fully from a course of treatments. Please allow 1 hour for the treatment.

Gua Sha therapy has been traditionally used in Eastern countries for thousands of years and passed on from generation to generation. The method, techniques and tools are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Like acupuncture, it is based on the concept of promoting vital energy Qi by unblocking stagnation. Gua Sha comes from two different Chinese words. "Gua" means scrape, scratch, rub or extract. "Sha" refers to a type of stagnant energy that is believed to cause pathogenic heat build-up within the body. Taken together, the term Gua Sha means the act of scraping the skin to remove energy blockage. According to traditional Chinese medicine theory, by bringing heat to the skin surface, Gua Sha releases the blocked energy, blood and other fluids containing metabolic waste that congests tissues and muscles.  

The Gua Sha tool is a smooth piece of jade, rose quartz or bian stone usually with a rounded edge specifically suited for the contours of the face. 

Traditional Chinese body Gua Sha uses a rather vigorous scraping technique, however only gentle pressure and relaxing techniques are required on the face area. Even a gentle scraping will cause facial skin to redden but this will settle down within a couple of hours. The technique will be used around the eyes, on the forehead, on the cheekbones and jawline, the nasolabial fold and the lines around the mouth.

The benefits of facial Gua Sha:

  • helps ease sinus pain, headaches, TMJ disorders and relieve muscle stress
  • increases circulation and skin cell nutrition 
  • brightens the complexion
  • improves lymphatic drainage and helps decrease puffiness on the face
  • aids in eliminating dark circles under the eyes
  • can effectively reduce clogged pores
  • helps control acne by cooling down pathogenic heat build-up caused by stagnation and thus reducing acne causing inflammation
  • helps reduce acne scarring
  • from anti-aging perspective, it helps to promote skin renewal, minimise fine lines, restore facial skin tone, tighten the chin and enhance the ability of the skin to absorb products

The standout effect however is the contouring powers of the Gua Sha – it can seriously sculpt and define cheekbones and jawline, allowing metabolic waste to drain and muscles to become free of tension – enabling them to do their supportive jobs properly.

Gua Sha is not just a skin-deep treatment for temporarily effect. Because the meridian lines are stimulated on the face, head and neck, organs such as the stomach, liver, spleen, heart and kidneys start to function at their optimal capacity thus promoting youth and balance from within.

 

Looking for an alternative anti-ageing treatment? Facial Cupping Massage will help you achieve just that! It is a great option for those who want to give their skin a boost, but who reject chemical injections such as Botox or fillers and surgeries.

Women in Asia, Russia and Europe have been utilising facial cupping for facial rejuvenation for 5000 years. It was one of the secrets of the Geisha.

The therapist will use small silicone suction cups to create a vacuum (or negative pressure - the "magic wand" of this massage!!) that lifts the skin and other facial tissue. The negative pressure is the opposite of what we are used to in life; most therapies push into the skin, prodding and compressing, whereas suction creates space for movement, flow and nourishment by decompressing facial tissue. Lifting the facial tissue moves toxins and stagnant blood out, and ushers new nutrient-enriched blood in, thereby repairing and nourishing your face. Its deep invigorating action increases elastin and collagen, preserving your youthfulness. It reverses gravity's effects on your face, like hanging upside would, giving you an instant face lift. It gives your face a lymphatic drainage and increases circulation, resulting in a clearer, more even complexion with such beautiful colour you will forget to wear make up!

The treatment includes: cleansing - light cupping with Neal's Yard Remedies organic facial oil - application of alginate peel-off mask to add even more tightness and lifting to the skin - the use of jade stone roller to cool and calm the skin.

Facial cupping massage is completely painless and leaves no marks. It is an ideal treatment to do right before a big event because it gives you an instant face lift without any downtime or side effects.

Benefits of Facial Cupping Massage:

  • releases tension in facial muscles, easing expression lines
  • plumps wrinkles and facial lines
  • lifts sagging skin (cheek-lift, eyelid-lift, jowl-lift)
  • facial glow as fresh nutrients brought to the epidermis
  • tightens pores
  • drains stagnant fluid to reduce puffiness and edema
  • increases collagen and elastin production for youthfulness
  • softens and reduces scar tissue
  • relieves sinus issues
  • reduces headaches and migraines

Benefits are noticed after a single treatment and continued treatments are cumulative. A series of treatments is going to produce the best results. 8 to 12 weekly treatments are recommended as starting point. Monthly follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain original results.

 

Hot Stone Facial Massage is a penetrating, earth connecting facial treatment designed to detoxify, replenish, relax and soothe tired skin. This luxurious facial treatment combines the benefits of essential oils and hot stone massage.

The Chinese Energy Balancing Massage has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is an ancient form of healing that brings the whole body into balance, rather than addressing the symptoms of disease, as with Western medicine. The treatment uses the 4000-year old Yin and Yang theory to encourage the free flow of energy through the body allowing it to heal itself.

From the very beginning of the routine, the client experiences a glorious sense of release and liberation as the neck and shoulders are massaged, lifting tension and allowing calm to descend.

Next step is balancing of the Meridians (energy pathways) while applying pressure to acupressure points. The acupressure points are gently manipulated to encourage "Qi" (universal life force energy) to flow where it is most needed. "Qi" energy is responsible for correctly functioning of bodily fluids and the smooth running of body systems and organs. The autonomic nervous system is calmed and peace descends as healing on all levels takes place.

The final step involves energy healing techniques. They enable the individual to free deep blocks in their body's energy pattern and bring about resolution of stuck patterns at the root of the problems in their life and health. By transforming ingrained patterns that can result in energetic, emotional and behavioural blocks to living our soul's true potential we can free up from past influences and positively move forward in our lives. This is perfect for anyone experiencing a feeling of "stuckness" and those who are at a pivotal point of change in their lives.

The Chinese Energy Balancing Massage is truly holistic as it not only improves the appearance of the face but also helps the body to function better. A truly wonderful combination of benefits that leaves you mentally and emotionally revived.

Benefits of Chinese Energy Balancing Massage:

  • can be used as a beauty treatment
  • reduces tension
  • improves circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage to eliminate metabolic waste
  • relieves headaches and migraines
  • can benefit Bells Palsy, facial tics, eye droop, sinus problems, eyesight and TMJ problems
