What is it?
A deeply relaxing treatment for the face and neck.
Stretching techniques, self help advice and myo-fascial release techniques complement the massage strokes used to improve all muscular issues.
How Does it Work?
The massage strokes tone the facial muscles that provide the underlying structure for the skin. Facial muscles can hold tension, it can be easy for certain thoughts and emotions to become habitual and lock themselves into facial expressions.Under such conditions, muscles can hold constant tension, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles, Poor muscle tone allows the muscles to sag,and the skin on the face loses it’s elasticity.The massage strokes release the tension, allowing the connective tissue under the surface layer of the skin to glide more smoothly over the bones and muscles.
What Are the Benefits?
Skin elasticity is increased,wrinkles and habitual expression lines lessen, while under eye bags and puffiness is also reduced. Improved blood and lymph circulation brings nutrients to skin cells.
The massage can greatly help stress-related conditions such as headaches, eye-strain and insomnia.
The facial acupressure points worked on in the treatment benefit the whole body and aid elimination of toxins.
Improvement is visible after the first treatment. However, for long-term results, a series of six to eight weekly treatments is recommended. Six for the price of five treatments.
Which Products Increase the Effectiveness of the Treatment?
I use the following from the Forever Living Products range:
Aloe Vera Exfoliating Cleanser. pH and moisture balanced.
Alpha-E Factor. Non-greasy fluid. Contains Vitamins A, C and E which enhance skin elasticity, combat free radical damage, soften and moisturise.
After the treatment, I apply Aloe Lotion to the face which contains collagen and elastin to help keep the skin smooth and supple.
When I booked for a Natural Face Lift Massage, I was not sure what difference it would make to my face.
As I lay on Christine’s comfortable couch, I relaxed as she expertly massaged my face checking that the massage pressure was just right for me. My face felt like it was coming to life and I found the whole experience very soothing.
After the massage, I felt very relaxed, my skin felt very soft and looked so much better.
