Soft & Supple Skin, Hydrated and Radiant

Holistic Facial Massage can help improve circulation, maintain moisture balance, and remove toxins that may be present in facial muscles and tissues. It can also help with relieving headaches/migraines, stress and help get rid of sinus congestion. Pressure points on the face are used to stimulate facial muscles, relieve tension, boost collagen production and enhance the skin’s elasticity and appearance. Lymphatic drainage techniques are also used to reduce puffiness. The skin is left feeling soft, supple, hydrated and radiant.

 

Some tools used are:


gua- - Facial Gua Sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, boost blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat. It helps break up fascia, the connective tissue that hugs muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation

Facial cupping - The suction effect pulls blood into the area of skin underneath the cup. This saturates the surrounding tissue with fresh blood and promotes new blood vessel formation.

 

Cupping also promotes sterile inflammation. Sterile inflammation is a form of pathogen-free trauma. With cupping, it results from mechanical trauma.

The vacuum-like suction separates different layers of tissues, resulting in microtrauma and tearing. This triggers an inflammatory response, flooding the area with white blood cells, platelets, and other healing aids.

 

What are the benefits?
Facial cupping has been shown to:

  • increase oxygen-rich blood circulation

  • strengthen skin and connective tissues

  • decrease puffiness

  • regulate oil production
