AYURVEDIC ACUPRESSURE FACIAL
Strengthen and protect skin against London's pollution and environmental stressors, with this natural, non-abrasive and non-invasive facial massage.

The traditional massage techniques include Ayurvedic acupressure – gentle touch on marma points to unblock stuck energy and revitalise skin's function. Organic herbal oil is used and soothing Sanskrit mantras are played.
Human touch is very healing and Jacqui directs subtle yet powerful pranic energy through her hands, giving this treatment with love and the sankalpa (intention) for every treatment for healing at a deeper level than just physical, for you to feel calm, nurtured and rejuvenated.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU SPEND TIME REALLY NURTURING YOUR FACE?
London's air, tube and traffic pollution, central heating, aircon, sitting at a computer for hours, stress, tension, indoor living and absorption of negative energy – all these factors can make your skin dull, congested, tired-looking or blotchy. The gentle, rhythmic movements of this facial massage promote the flow of the circulation and lymphatic systems, nourishing and detoxing the skin. It's beneficial for spots, blotchiness, rashes, tired skin, bumps under the skin and more serious problems such as pigmentation and eczema. The techniques improve facial muscle tone and release tension held there, to lift and lighten your appearance.
Then, working on a subtle pranic level, gentle acupressure is used on specific points (called marma points) on the face. These are where the nadis – energy channels, or meridians – cross, and are like junctions where energy gets stuck. Freeing it re-balances the flow of prana in the head and facial area. Each marma point has different effects, such as soothing tired eyes, toning the skin, reducing stress and anxiety, calming an agitated or overactive mind, relieving mental fatigue, or activating specific areas of the brain such as the pituitary. It can help to release creative and emotional blockages.
Energetically, the facial pacifies Vata dosha, the cold, drying 'air' energy that causes wrinkles, dryness and dullness in the skin. So done regularly, it may give healthier, more youthful skin. Book a course of six for more visible results if you are treating a skin condition or preparing for a big event such as a wedding.
