Relaxing & Beautiful - what more do you need?
Natural Face Lift Massage has come to Fiona Dalziel Holistic Therapy and I am really excited to tell you all about it, so thought that writing this short blog was the best way to do so!
In my last blog “Making Collagen – my five top tips”, one of these five tips was to have facial massage, to be done yourself or to get it done for you!
This amazing Face Lifting Massage treatment incorporates a unique blend of highly effective massage techniques including Acupressure, drawn from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Indian Face Massage and the ever-popular Lymphatic Drainage Massage, helping to rid your body of toxins.
The Natural Face Lift Massage involves flowing techniques which act as a natural face lift. This can be used as an alternative to surgery, helping you feel and look more youthful. It is designed to be a gentle non-invasive approach to looking younger. It works primarily by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and in the connective tissue.
At the pace we live our lives, we all have tension that builds up in our scalp, face, neck and shoulder muscles. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.
Who wouldn’t love to release these tension hot spots, reduce wrinkles and take much needed time out for ourselves?
Natural Face Lift Massage is a holistic 1-hour treatment incorporating the face, head, neck and shoulders.
In what ways can Natural Face Lift Massage benefit me?
Your facial skin will feel invigorated, lighter and more supple, as the massage movements are designed to stretch and tone.
Tension will feel as though it is lifted from the scalp. The treatment will improve circulation to the face and scalp which is wonderfully stimulating for your skin.
Lines gradually soften and your complexion will appear brighter.
It’s great if you carry a lot of tension in your upper body from sitting at your desk or driving, as muscles of the neck and shoulders are massaged before the face.
You will receive holistic benefits through the stimulation of acupressure points which relate to our various organs and systems.
The treatment helps with sinus drainage which, together with the relaxing effect, allows you to breathe more deeply.
Natural Face Lift Massage is deeply calming and beautiful treatment – you may well fall asleep!
So how does Natural Face Lift Massage work?
There are four stages to the treatment:
Neck, Shoulder and Scalp
To achieve a significant effect on facial skin, we need to remove tension from the underlying muscles which are not only pulling on the skin from underneath but also affecting the blood supply to our face. Tight shoulders are partly responsible for very stressed people having a “grey” look to their complexion. Mouth expressions come from muscle under the chin which is connected to the collar bone and frowns are formed by muscle at the front and back of the scalp.
A series of firm stroking movements to the face, stimulate blood flow to the face and lymphatic flow away from the face. At the same time collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis (second layer of your skin) are stretched to stimulate their flexibility. Skin will look better for longer if it is more flexible and has good circulation.
A short series of acupressure points from traditional Chinese medicine balance the energy flow within body and mind.
These techniques passively exercise the facial tissue to help counteract the effects of gravity and facial expressions by facilitating muscle memory.
How often do I need a treatment?
A brighter, more rested appearance can be seen after just one treatment, but obviously maintenance is key. It’s a bit like going to the gym: you can’t just go once and expect to be fit at the end of the session.
So it is with Natural Face Lift Massage – a regular treatment will optimise the result.
The “text book” suggestion for optimal results is one treatment per week for 6 weeks, followed by a monthly maintenance treatment, and ideally a few facial exercises at home.
Nonetheless, if time or resources prevent you from adopting the suggested treatment plan, I do believe you will still get a significant holistic benefit from Natural Face Lift Massage if you just have a treatment as often as you feel able.
Try it – and see the results for yourself - it's relaxing and beautiful!
Your mind, body and soul will thank you!
Much love Fiona x
