Are holistic facials just an occasional pamper treat? The answer is NO!

Just like the rest of our body, our face has many muscles that can get tight and hold on to stress. A holistic facial treatment should leave your muscles feeling relaxed and rejuvenated as well as leaving your skin glowing!

There are so many benefits to having regular facials including deep cleansing the skin, slowed aging, opening your pores and even reducing stress! There is also the obvious benefit of having some much needed down-time too.

What is a Holistic Facial?

A Holistic Facial combines Acupressure, Facial Massage and Lymphatic Drainage Techniques to improve the texture of the skin, increase circulation and encourage rejuvenation and cellular activity. Acupressure helps to reduce tension as well as encouraging relaxation throughout the entire body through the stimulation of specific acupressure points on the face and scalp. The treatment includes the face, neck, chest, shoulders and scalp.

The facial massage stimulates the circulation bringing fresh nutrients to the surface while lymphatic drainage removes waste products from your tissues and excess water. A holistic facial involves cleansing, toning, exfoliation, massage, application of a mask, and moisturising the skin.

Using natural oils, the massage of the face further encourages deep relaxation as well as also improving the tone, texture and health of the skin and muscle tissue.

The benefits of a Holistic Facial massage –

  • Increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to skin and muscles
  • Increases cellular activity
  • Improves texture of skin
  • Stimulates removal of waste products from tissues
  • Relieves tension/stress and can aid in relieving psychological distress
  • Opens the pores
  • Exfoliates the skin
  • Reduces under eye bags and dark circles
  • Deep cleansing

Plus, many more!

Are facials just for women? The answer again, NO!

Facials are not just for the ladies; men can have them too! It is so important to look after your skin! Think of it like going to the barber, a fresh face is just as important as a fresh haircut.

What are the benefits for men?

Due to the exfoliation it can also help to improve your shaving experience. Exfoliation preps your skin to release trapped ingrown hairs below the skin and removes dead skin cells so you can get a closer shave. A holistic facial also helps to moisture and brighten the skin which is important to contributing towards maintaining healthy skin.

If you work outdoors or in an environment that is dirty/dusty, this can be incredibly drying for your skin. Having a holistic facial regularly, puts all those nutrients back into your skin, feeding it and releases those facial muscles. Combine it with a back massage for a true MOT treatment experience.
