ACUPRESSURE FACIAL REJUVENATION
Acupressure Facial Rejuvenation is a unique facial that combines the therapeutic benefits of specific facial points along with organic skin products to rejuvenate, enhance and refine your skin tone. Facial acupressure stimulates circulation and the flow of the lymphatic system to remove tension, boost oxygenation, and support the delivery of nutrients to the skin. This helps to clear the complexion, increases collagen production/retention to promote elasticity thereby increasing skin and muscle tone to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin health. Acupressure facial rejuvenation uses the traditional Chinese medicine technique of applying pressure on specific points of the face, head, and neck that hold the results of our daily stresses and how we respond to them. Because there are so many points located on the head, face, and neck, it feels like a release of the whole-body, leaving you feeling extremely relaxed.
The results of a session are not as dramatic as Botox injections, but acupressure is a non-invasive way to stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal itself -therefore results last longer, and without the risk of side effects!
(Recommended sessions every 6-8 weeks.)
Acupressure is a touch technique which balances the flow of ki, or like energy, in the human body. It works by using touch in a special way which communicates very clear, distinct messages to the brain; and by directly influencing the flow of energy to eliminate imbalances. Because of its effectiveness at reducing stress, Acupressure is extremely useful in our society as a preventive health care measure.
ORIGINS OF ACUPRESSURE
Acupressure history is a unique combination of Chinese medical theory whose history stretches back to the beginnings of acupuncture 5000 years ago, and a rich living tradition of folk medicine. As a method of healing it has traveled from China through Japan to North America and UK.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AN ACUPRESSURE SESSION
Acupressure is performed fully clothed, on a massage table. The most common experience reported by those receiving Acupressure is a feeling of “relaxed energy”. This is the goal of Acupressure; an increase of your energy reserves and a vitalization of your ability to use your own energy effectively. Stress reduction is a natural outcome of Acupressure.
The effects of an Acupressure session are usually felt for between 3 hours and 3 days afterwards. Since Acupressure moves energy in new ways, a wide range of sensations has been reported. These may include feeling: "lighter, lazy, elated, tingling, hot, cold, emotional" and generally feeling energy moving in your body in unaccustomed ways.
Not everyone has such reactions, but the results are part of the balancing process.
