Holistic Facials

Holistic Facial

A Holistic Facial can help to improve the skin’s texture and appearance as the circulation is increased, giving you a healthy looking complexion.  This is a very relaxing treatment as it can both stimulate and soothe the skins’ nerve endings, which can help to delay fine lines and wrinkles, and tones facial muscles.  It can help to reduce tension headaches and leaves you with a feeling of well-being.

What is a Holistic Facial?

Holistic Facial harnesses the power of aromatherapy, herbal remedies and massage for your health and beauty. This is a truly holistic facial that focuses on the skin and muscles of the upper body and face. After a consultation, we will choose your skin products from the natural range with the aim of deep cleansing, improving skin tone, condition and elasticity as well as making you feel relaxed with a treatment enriched with a face; scalp, neck and shoulder and arm massage to help release tension and improve circulation to the skin, muscles and hair.

How can a Holistic Facial help you?

We all have unique skin and it is changing all the time, from internal and external influences. A holistic facial will help to improve and maintain the condition of your skin and also to help to relieve facial tension, through the jaw, around the eyes and forehead.

Aromatherapy ranges include Palmarosa which may benefit congested, tired and young skins, Frankincense, Rose or Orange Blossom may benefit signs of ageing and dry skins, Rose may help with redness and Starflower may help with sensitive skins or eczema. The ranges will be selected and mixed together to suit you at the time of your treatment.

What does the treatment involve?

Skin type will be discussed to ensure the most suitable products are used.  Skin care routine and products will be discussed to meet your needs and requirements.
Any make-up will be removed before treatment starts.
The skin is then cleansed , and a toner or spritz will be used.  An exfoliating product will be applied to help remove dead skin cells and traces of cleanser and toner.
The facial massage will be performed using pure essential oils especially blended for your skins’ requirements.  The massage includes the face, neck, shoulders and upper arms and is extremely relaxing. Work will be done on specific pressure points to encourage stimulation, and can help to release endorphins, which are the body’s feel good hormones.
Lymphatic drainage is performed to help lymph drainage into the nearest node, and then a non-setting face mask will be applied, along with a refreshing eye mask.  While the mask is on, a scalp, shoulder, neck and arm massage will be performed to relax and soothe your mind.
After the mask has been removed, a toner is applied, followed by a moisturiser, eye gel and lip balm.
Aftercare advice will be given to ensure you get the best results from the treatment.
