Japanese Facials

Japanese Facials

The Japanese Facial Lifting treatment is a facial with a difference. The Japanese concept of beauty is that it is more than skin deep and health and beauty are not seen as separate. When a person radiates true health they appear beautiful and the face is an indicator of this state.

Traditionally, the purpose of Japanese facial massage is to work specifically and precisely with the facial meridians (energy pathways) and acupuncture points to achieve a balance in the entire facial skin, the facial muscles, and the internal organs. It also helps to balance the emotions. Because this facial works on many levels, it helps to relax and re-balance the health of the whole person.

Hailed as a non surgical face lift, this is a very gentle and soothing massage of the face and neck, including working the tsubo points which help to bring you into balance. This can be done purely as a massage treatment, or as a full deep cleansing facial.  This includes a deep cleanse, and seaweed or clay masque to further enrich your skin and the special facial massage treatment.

The essential oils and carrier oils are chosen based on your particular requirements – from deep cleansing, to skin rejuvenating, or balancing hormones, or intensively moisturizing. I have a wide variety of carrier oils – from Borage, Camelia, Carrot, Evening Primrose, Sesame, Rosehip Oils as well as the more usual Jojoba, Peach kernel, Almond oil, Calendula and St Johns Wort. Each have their own particular properties which can be used to enhance any treatment, depending upon your individual needs and requirements.

There are four stages to this treatment: 

Stage One - reduces tension in the neck muscles.

Stage Two - targets the deep and superfacial facial muscles which in turn, improves circulation. This refreshes tired skin and relaxes muscles. Imagine if every muscle in your face is relaxed, how your body will feel!

Stage Three - by working acupressure points along meridians (energy pathways) helps improve the general appearance of the face, reduces wrinkles and improves muscle tone. A natural facelift!

Stage Four - lymphatic drainage helps drain toxins from the tissues and reduces puffiness. Fantastic for the eye area!

Japanese Facial Lifting is an uplifting therapy that reaches every part of your being.  This wonderful therapy encourages the release of tension, to help you feel relaxed, refreshed and uplifted.

A course of six treatments is recommended to fully benefit from this wonderful, uplifting therapy.  However, if you are preparing for a big event, such as a wedding, even one treatment can make a difference.
