Ayurvedic Facial Massage

©natashabidgood-lisa-massage-6547.jpg
 

Ayurvedic face massage is based on the ancient therapeutic principles of Ayurveda. It is a non-invasive and the most natural face lift that you can have.

The Ayurvedic view of health is in physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and that health is maintained by the balance of three subtle life-giving forces or Doshas: Vatta, Pitta, and Kapha each of these three Doshas has a role to play in the body and each Dosha possesses individual qualities.

This workshop will look at the benefits of Ayurvedic Face Massage.  We will cleanse, tone and prepare the skin for a be-spoke blend of oils appropriate to skin type and work into the Marma points situated on the face, scalp and head. . Marma points are an integral part of Ayurveda and are the subtle pressure points, like points used in acupressure.

In Ayurveda, it is said that the ‘lifeforce’ is located in the head. We will work into these points to stimulate the lifeforce, balance and revitalise the bodies energies and assist in relieving tension and pressure.

This treatment can complement any holistic body massage therapist Aromatherapist or beauty therapist practice. We recommend this facial massage:

  • to relax and promote harmony to the mind and body

  • to de-stress

  • release stress induced toxins from the face and restore it to natural balance

  • to promote healing working with the emotions on a deep level

It is thought that Ayurvedic Facial Massage will:

  • promote relaxation to the muscles of the face and stimulates the circulation

  • improves the muscle tone of the face

  • relieve sinus congestion

  • assist lymphatic drainage

  • promote a reduction in neck and shoulder tension

  • promote a healthy glow to the complexion and imparts a smooth texture to the skin

 Hot Stone Therapy

%C2%A9natashabidgood-lisa-massage-6869.jpg
 

A stone massage is a massage that uses smooth, flat and heated rocks placed at key points on the body.

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism.

Hot Stone therapy is technically termed as Geothermotherapy, that is the use of heated stones and chilled stones to affect a chemical release within the human body. The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment.

Stones usually made of Basalt are placed into an electric slow cooker which is filled with water , although you can now purchase Carry Bags that warm the stones which make it very convenient for the mobile therapist.
