Facial Rejuvenation Masage

Indian Face Massage (Facial rejuvenation) is a natural facelift through massage with the 'Massage Mitts'.

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.

Tension can build up within our facial muscles from the pressures of everyday life without us realising it. It can be easy for certain thoughts and emotions to become habitual, locking themselves into expressions on our faces - sometimes over a duration of a whole lifetime. Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.

Facial Massage

Through gentle massage of the face, we can help to delay the ageing process. This is achieved by using simple massage techniques and energy balancing, thereby giving the facial muscles a lift and a new lease of life.

This is a precise healthcare modality, working the face systematically, releasing deep-seated tensions, freeing layers of muscle and connective tissue so that there is space for the muscles to relax, encouraging an opening so that micro circulation and elimination can begin again and the tissues can glide smoothly over the deeper layers of muscle and bone. Although it is difficult to stave off the ageing process, we can do much to extend the appearance of youth and beauty by using simple, natural and effective massage techniques and energy balancing to take care of the assets we possess.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage, as the name suggests, focuses on the movement of fluid through the lymphatic system which is essential in filtering out bacteria and toxins.

The Lymphatic System

Most of us has experienced a cold and discovered that it has caused our lymph nodes (usually around the neck and jaw) to swell and this swelling goes away when our cold does. This is because our lymph nodes are becoming congested with white blood cells fighting the infection.

Your lymph nodes are part of your lymphatic system which is a network of vessels (similar to blood vessels) that run throughout the body and surround our organs. As much as 2-3 liters of lymph are filtered through this system each day. Effective Lymphatic Drainage when done properly by a qualified therapist, can increase the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times!

Symptoms of a Congested Lymphatic System

When this system becomes congested (due to surgery, illness, injury etc, it can cause soreness, puffiness, allergies, headaches, low energy, increased susceptibility to infection, aches, pains, and flu-like symptoms.

Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage uses gentle rhythmic movement that assists the body in moving and draining lymph fluid to the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes produce lymphocytes which invaders (germs and toxins) and also filters the lymph fluid. Manual Lymphatic Drainage has many medical uses. It is an essential component of Complex Decongestive Therapy used to treat lymphoedema and it is also used as part of a full detoxification program. Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps the body heal itself from many common maladies and common benefits can include: reduction in oedema, regeneration of tissue, anti-aging, relief of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, some forms of constipation and insomnia.

Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach.
Approximately 80% of women over 20 years will get cellulite.
Fat pushes through the connective tissue (fascia) beneath the skin, causing a rippled appearance.
Although there isn’t a permanent solution to banishing the orange peel effect, massage can do wonders to improve it. Massage will speed up the circulation which will improve the appearance of the skin and improve the overall texture and tone.

A new model of understanding Health & Wellbeing – Self-help Massage and the Fascial System

 

The Fascial system has been defined as a whole body web, a network that encompasses and surrounds all organs, muscles, bones and nerve fibres from the top of our head to the tips of our toes. It provides a functional structure of support for movement and a whole body communication network.

It is a packing material that every structure and cell is embedded into providing an environment within the tissue matrix that enables all body systems to operate and for cell to cell communication to take place in an integral manner to regulate homeostasis. The altered configurations of soft tissue, muscle and fascia that can cause ‘congestion’ within our body’s causing pain can be reduced with regular massage to restore function.

Massage with the massage mitts promotes healing and flexibility by stimulating the body’s own physiological responses within the tissue matrix to reduce stiffness and pain. Massage initiates the body’s own homeostatic processes by stimulating the soft tissue where you are massaging to reduce tissue 'congestion'. This in turn increases tissue hydration, oxygenation and movement thus turning the massage stimuli into nature’s own biochemical and neurophysiological responses, improving well-being and help restore function.
