This massage is an intensely relaxing massage of the face and neck that smoothes fine lines for a short period. It helps to boost the circulation in the skin, so you leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and with a natural glow.
Will this make me look younger?
This massage has been called the “natural facelift”. The effects are temporary, although frequent face massage may make a difference to your skin tone in the longer term. This is achieved by relaxing the muscles in the face, along with hydrating and smoothing the skin. According to my clients who are over 40, the effects may last up to two weeks. If you are younger, you probably won’t notice much of a difference, apart from feeling more relaxed.
This is a very calming massage and can be useful to help you relax if you are stressed, especially if you clench your jaw or grind your teeth at night, as the muscles around the jaw get tight.
The massage routine
During the face massage, you lie on your back, covered by a big towel, so you stay warm. As you relax, your blood pressure drops and you may feel colder, so it’s important to be covered by the towel, so you can relax.
The massage strokes used are light, flowing and repetitive. This helps the nourishing face oil to be absorbed into the skin, hydrating it. The skin’s micro-circulation is improved, which gives your skin a healthy glow afterwards.
For the final 15 minutes, a collagen eye mask is applied, while your neck and lower part of your face is massaged. If you have sensitive skin around the eyes and you are concerned about having a reaction to the eye mask, this can be skipped.
Length of appointment
You can book this massage on its own as a 45 or 60 minute massage or you can incorporate a shorter version into a 60 or 90 minute massage.
