Ayurvedic Facelift Massage

Ayurvedic Facelift Massage

 

Mukha Abhyangam or Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage was created with a view to addressing current day concerns of people, particularly women, to look youthful and healthy without invasive interventions such as Botox and plastic surgery.  Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage is a holistic anti-ageing tool and a real workout for the face. Just as regular visits to the gym can keep you looking fit and toned, so also can regular face massages lift and tone muscles, soften your features and keep you looking radiant with the renewed blood and oxygen supply to your face.

Kneading facial muscles brings nutrients to the treated area, helping the collagen fibres retain their elasticity. Stimulating marma points releases energy blockages. While nothing can permanently halt the ageing process, we can lessen the appearance of damage to our skins through massage, a more positive lifestyle and outlook, staying out of the sun and reducing our exposure to harmful chemicals.

Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage is tailored to an individual, using oils and techniques that are suitable to the person’s constitution (prakruti). It incorporates marma massage (the stimulation of vital points) to help with the unrestricted flow of energy. Its principles are based on ancient massage techniques that have been tried and tested over centuries.

-Benefits of Mukha Abhyangam-

  • Reduces expression lines and wrinkles
  • Tones and increases elasticity in the facial muscles
  • Refines pores and tightens facial contours
  • Improves blood circulation to the face
  • Excellent help in insomnia
  • Relaxes the face and jaw muscles therefore it can help with TMJ disorder
  • It may help if you suffer with blocked sinuses
  • Relieves tension headaches
  • Creates a sense of calmness
  • Helps with blood flow to the head and brain
  • Re-energises your energy centres (Doshas)

 

This amazing face massage treatment can also be combined with any other treatment on request.

Investment: 1 Hour ‚ā¨60

Course of 6 (Recommended for full benefit): ‚ā¨330

*Course of treatments must be paid in full in advance*

Kinesio-taping – why you need this in your life!

So you may be wondering, ‚Äėwhat is this Kinesio-taping thing all about‚Äô?

 

Well, put in simple terms, Kinesio-taping is the application of a specific form of tape/sports tape in order to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

 

The tape is applied to the skin by a specifically trained therapist, usually in conjunction with another therapy, massage for example.

The beauty of Kinesio-tape is it’s versatility. It is safe for all ages and can be left on the skin for several days.

It can be applied to enhance your Lymphatic Drainage treatment, whether you are having MLD (Manual Lymph Drainage) for treatment of Lymphedema, sports injuries or swollen ankles during pregnancy.

It’s also very beneficial for treating repetitive strain injuries, in conjunction with deep tissue massage.

And for pain management it can provide instant relief in many cases, a wonderful alternative to pain killers and anti-inflammatories (where appropriate).

 

As a therapist with many years experience in massage, MLD, yoga and nutrition, I am always learning and adding to my skill-set in order to provide the very best care for my clients. So it is my pleasure to be able to add this very effective technique to the list. On a case-by-case basis I can asses which combination of the above therapies is most suitable for your injury/ongoing issue.

 

All too often we ignore our aches and pains because we can’t quite put our finger on the cause, or indeed the most suitable solution. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away!

 

Come and see me so we can talk about your treatment options. Call reception on 01 8310888

Say Hello to Joanita

Hi everyone! My name is Joanita. I am honoured to be your Certified Yoga Teacher!

As a Yogi, I am a seeker! I was attracted to yoga because a lot of things in the world didn’t make sense and yoga has always brought peace, calmness in me and above all it unites my mind and my body. Practicing Hatha yoga is really there to prepare the body and mind for the bigger work in life. My practice keeps my body in good health (now it’s like a fit vehicle ready for purpose).

My every day practice also helps me engage with my breath and feel the energy of life as it unfolds in each moment, on and off my mat.Everything is perfect as it is, there is no need to change anything and this is a big challenge. Rising to this challenge opens up to the promise of yoga – let it go and live life in the present moment, grounding in my natural state of being and with the world around me.

I am a proud mother of three beautiful children and as a qualified yoga teacher I am committed to my daily practice so that my teaching is always up to date. Education through yoga is caring for the development of our entire own being.

My class on Thursday morning will focus on alignment and maintaining good posture, with each class ending with a deep relaxation. Stretching will be subtle and effective while finding comfort in building strength and flexibility. If you are new to yoga or the idea of a gentle yoga class appeals to you, you have found your style!
