Natural Lift Facial Massage
Natural Lift Facial Massage is a 40 minute specifically designed treatment of the face, head and neck using specific massage techniques that help promote deep relaxation, releasing stresses and traumas locked deeply into the muscles.
Oriental medicine teaches that there are three major factors to true health: physical, physiological and spiritual health. According to this ancient tradition, beauty arises naturally if a person can bring these three factors into harmony. The intent of Natural Lift Facial Massage is to help enhance natural, true health and beauty.
Natural Lift Facial Massage incorporates a unique blend of highly effective techniques drawn from both Japanese Face Massage and Indian Face Massage, and also incorporates complementary techniques from Acupressure and Facial Reflexology.
Natural Lift Facial Massage can help to:
– Improve skin suppleness
– Reduce and release any muscles tension in the face and jaw
– Relieve stress symptoms such as insomnia, headaches and eyes strain
– Tone the skin and underlying muscle
– Stimulate rejuvenation and cellular activity
– Aid lymphatic circulation, increasing elimination of toxins and the supply of nutrients to the cells
– Aid the removal of dead skin cells
– Promote blood circulation
– Enhance mental and physical relaxation
The Benefits of Natural Lift Facial Massage:
Our facial muscles are in constant use from smiling, frowning, eating, yawning etc. Over time this can cause accumulated tension which restricts the blood vessels causing reduced blood and lymph circulation to the facial tissues. This in turn prevents the efficient removal of waste products and reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients being received. Natural Lift Facial Massage reduces muscle tension and improves the flow of blood and lymph.
Touch has an immediate and beneficial effect on our emotions. Our nervous system governs the way we react to our environment and regulates our bodily systems. Natural Lift Facial Massage can help to calm, soothe and activate parasympathetic nervous system activity (the relaxation response).
Natural Lift Facial Massage boosts lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. The lymph vessels are very close to the skin’s surface and the gentle stroking used during this massage has a major effect on improving saggy, puffy and grey skin.
Our skin is made up of connective tissue formed from elastin and collagen. These weave together and form a flexible, webbed structure. Over time and as we age these fibres lock together and the skin loses its elasticity. Natural Lift Facial Massage helps to promote lost skin flexibility by gently toning these fibres and promoting suppleness and mobility. Dead cells are loosened and shed, exposing fresh, younger cells. The increased temperature of the skin relaxes the follicles and pores. This helps with absorption of the massage oil and this in turn softens the skin.
The universal life force, also known as “chi” is believed to flow through energy centres and meridian lines all over the body, affecting health and well-being. Natural Lift Facial Massage helps to balance these energy centres by using finger pressure on the facial meridians and pressure points, helping to release any blockages and releasing the flow of energy to the body’s energy system.
