Over the last few weeks I have been doing more and more Ayurvedic Face-lift Therapy Treatments. I am delighted that people are discovering the benefits of this fabulous treatment
Ayurvedic is the Indian Holistic system developed thousands of years ago. It works on the five elements, earth, fire, water, ether and earth. Ayurvedic translates from Sanskrit to the “science of life.”
I was taught this massage by the world renowned Dr. Deepa Apte in Greenwich, London. As far as I am aware I am one of only three Therapists in this area who have been taught by this amazing lady. The other two Therapists I know very well and visit often so we can swap Ayurvedic massages!
Although the treatment is called a face – lift therapy massage, it is so much more than that. It works on the marma (energy) points on the face, neck and head (similar to the Reflex points in Reflexology) stimulating certain areas of the body by gently massaging, clearing and re-energising those marma points. Therefore the treatment relaxes the whole body, literally from the hair to the tippy toes! I see clients who might just want the physical benefits of a younger looking face but the majority of these clients are struggling with pain, depression and bereavement. It is extremely versatile!
From a Therapists view I see the face change as the massage progresses, the frown lines disappear, the cheeks and jawline relax, the shoulders relax away from the ears. Go on! Drop your shoulders right now! The scalp becomes more mobile and the lines around the muscles around the eyes start to relax. The body starts to relax, the legs may twitch – a sign of deep relaxation and sometimes the angelic sound of snoring takes place!I can’t help but smile with satisfaction when I see all of this happen!
A specialised Ayurvedic sesame oil is used in the massage which is also deep cleansing and is applied to the face, neck, shoulders and hair. Leaving the oil in the hair for a deeply nourishing oil treatment for as long as you can is great. Then wash the hair with your normal shampoo and conditioner . Drinking water is encouraged to rid the body of toxins that have been released into the blood stream and you will notice the difference. Not just the physical improvement in your face but also how you feel mentally and emotionally.
It is a great treatment for these Winter months when the face gets a bit of a battering from the cold, rain and the centrally heated houses and buildings. When you are feeling exhausted and tired from the dark days, come and give yourself a treat or give someone else a treat and buy them a gift voucher!
