A couple of years ago I discovered the benefits of facial massage with a Facial Rejuvenation treatment by Calm and Clear®. Half way through the gentle experience the practitioner showed me my reflection in the mirror and the half she had tended to was considerably more lifted, plumped-up and alive. Amazing.
What is Facial Rejuvenation?
Facial Rejuvenation (also called Indian Face Massage or Natural Face-lift massage) is a deeply relaxing and revitalising massage designed to be a gentle and non-invasive approach to improving the skin and muscles on the face.
It works primarily by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and in the connective tissue of the skin.
Our facial muscles can become very tense, and hold onto a lot of daily stress. It can be easy for certain thoughts and emotions to become habitual, locking themselves into expressions on our faces – sometimes over the duration of a whole lifetime.
Wrinkles and fine lines can be prematurely produced due to the muscles being over tense and the skin being under nourished and dehydrated. These combined can cause the skin to lose it’s elasticity and suppleness, and eventually leads to sagging and a dull complexion.
Using this gentle Facial Rejuvenation treatment, many people have found it helps to slow down the visible signs of the natural ageing process, and it causes the skin to look more lifted and toned. Elasticity and suppleness returned and the skin regained it’s natural glow.
In addition to the physical results, the treatment works to deeply relax both the mind and body. The face feels more mobile and the mind feels clear and alert.
The whole treatment is based on Indian Ayurvedic principles, and these are incorporated as part of the treatment.
The Facial Rejuvenation Massage can be combined into an opulent 90 minutes treatment with any of the other Calm and Clear Complementary Therapies® treatments, but is particularly good with the Manual Lymph drainage or the Thermo-Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candling).
The 90 minutes treatment was reviewed in the Metro newspaper – the article can be found on our Press & Media page.
What happens during a treatment?
At Calm and Clear Complementary Therapies® a full consultation is taken before the treatment, checking for any contraindications to treatment. Details about general health, medication, diet and hobbies will be discussed.
The treatment is done with the client lying fully dressed on a comfortable massage couch. The client is covered with a blanket, and made to feel as comfortable as possible.
Each stand alone Facial Rejuvenation appointment lasts for 1 hour. The client often sleeps during the treatment as it is so relaxing, and they can sometimes have pins and needles in their arms and legs.
The massage works the face systematically, aiding the release of deep-seated tension. Half way during the first treatment clients may wish to stop and look at their face in the mirror so that they can see the visible difference between the side which has been massaged and the side which hasn’t. The difference can be amazing.
Following the Facial Rejuvenation after care advice is given. General lifestyle advice is also given related to each client’s individual needs, including some dietary advice and some facial exercises. Some information about using natural products at home may also be given.
