Having a Holistic facial massage is rarely just a popular beauty treatment. A holistic facial massage is a full, natural treatment that incorporates the same principles as a regular facial routine. But goes further to concentrate on the person as a whole and incorporates elements other than just a simple cleanse/tone routine. Holistic facials are not gender specific and can be bespoke to suit the needs of the individual.

Your skin is treated according to type using paraben free products. You may choose to have a Holistic facial because you would like to treat your skin accordingly. For example, someone who has dry/mature skin may benefit from a blend of oil that suits their complexion and will nurture and plump up the skin. Likewise a facial that suits an oilier skin would need not to aggravate the condition. After a consultation, the products chosen will address your skin type and individual needs.

Using natural face masks and simple but correct products ensures that your skin will be in good hands. The aim of a Holistic facial is to enhance the skin all the while uplifting and re balancing you as a whole.

Following cleansing and toning of the face, a bespoke mask is applied to your face and you can choose to have a relaxing hand, head or foot massage while the mask works its magic. Then the suitable properties of essential oils are expertly mixed with base oil which is both nourishing and restorative to the skin. The oil is gently massaged into the skin of the face, to help boost circulation, aid lymphatic drainage and help to remove toxins leaving your skin soft, supple and radiant. Finished off with a deeply relaxing face, neck and shoulder massage.

As so many of us have hectic lives having regular facials once a month can be an ideal way to allow ourselves to enjoy a deep state of relaxation. In turn giving the mind and body a chance to rest and recharge. Time enough for you to switch off and relax from the stresses and strains of everyday for at least 90 minutes.
