This soothing facial massage combines elements of the Facial Reflexology treatment with traditional Japanese facial massage techniques. While this is ostensibly a beauty-treatment, it also has fantastic health and relaxation benefits. After all, how we look and how we feel are inextricably linked.
Using just his fingers and either a rose-hip or frankincense oil, the treatment begins with a gentle stimulation of selected facial acupuncture points. Rupert then assesses the reflexology zones using slow pulling motions before focusing the treatment accordingly. This is followed by the Japanese Facial Massage and lymphatic drainage techniques, which are slow, deep and hypnotic sending you into a deep state of relaxation.
As well as stimulating the outer layer of the skin, these combined methods work the meridians, facial nerves and muscles, ensuring a balancing effect for the whole body.
It can be used as a one-off treatment; giving you a radiant glow and helping you feel relaxed before a special occasion or meeting. Or as a course of treatments; reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving the texture of the skin.
