Holistic Facials

Holistic facials are not just about glowing skin!

Holistic Facials

Holistic facials are not just about glowing skin.  Using sinus drainage, lymphatic moves and acupressure on the face, neck, scalp, upper back and shoulders they can also help to ease tension and congestion, and to reduce the physical and emotional impact of stress and anxiety on the mind and body.


The holistic facials I offer focus on the whole of you rather than just the aesthetic appearance of your skin, and during the treatment I will working on your face, scalp, décolletage, arms and hands using a variety of techniques that will have an impact on the whole body.  (Please just let me know prior to your treatment if you don’t want me to work on a particular area.)

During a full treatment I double cleanse the face to remove surface dirt and toxins and apply a face mask.  While this is working its magic I massage your shoulders, arms and use reflexology techniques on your hands. 

The face mask is removed with the use of hot towels and then using a combination of lymphatic drainage and massage I work on your face, decolletage and upper back.  As well as helping to remove tension, these techniques help to remove waste and toxins from the body, easing congestion and pressure.  

I then work gently on key acupressure points on the face to help release tension, restore nutrients, and remove waste and toxins.  In traditional Chinese medicine, these points lie along the

meridian lines of your body, and it’s believed that gently stimulating them helps remove any blockages, restoring balance to your mind and body.

Finally, I gently massage the scalp and neck, finishing off with a hot towel to remove any oil on the face before moisturising the face and applying a soothing eye gel.

Whether you want some me time or you’re looking for support with more specific health and well-being issues you’ll leave your treatment feeling deeply relaxed, restored and rebalanced.

Express treatment / Combining with other treatments

The holistic facial treatment can easily be adapted to 30 minutes and is fantastic when combined with other therapies.  You can have a 60 minute treatment which combines an express facial with Reflexology, Reiki or Ear Candling, or you can have a 90 minute treatment which combines any two treatments of your choice.
