Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage

The science and wisdom of Ayurveda is at the forefront of wellbeing and longevity as a natural approach to maintaining health.

 

This revered natural face lift Ayurvedic treatment is used to prevent and reverse the physical signs of ageing. It is based on the therapeutic principles of Ayurveda, that the  balance of the 3 doshas (constitutions) of Vata (Dry, airy), Pitta (Hot, Inflammatory) Kapha (cool and oily), brings harmony to mind, body, emotions and spirit and a feeling of wellbeing. It is balance of all levels of being that imbues beauty.

 

The treatment focuses mainly on the face, head and neck and feels amazing, as it is deeply relaxing and helps to release tension held in the jaw and face. You will come away looking and feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, healthier and more vital.

The Benefits

Head Massage

 

 

Two main objectives of Ayurveda is to promote and optimise health and longevity and to cure disease and dysfunction, both in the mental and physical spheresThe physical treatments and body work of Ayurveda are unique unlike anything used in any other system of medicine.

Indian Head Massage is a structured physical treatment of the head, neck and face using a series of different strokes, techniques, Marma points and medicated oil. It is a deeply relaxing and nourishing treatment that releases stress and worry and soothes an over-active mind.

 

This amazing treatment is one of the most revered and celebrated massage treatments within Ayurveda and the array of benefits that it is able to induce are far reaching

 

Ayurvedically there are three core reasons for this:

 

  • The head is the entry point of Prana or life energy into the body and thus the receiver of the very essence of what it is to be alive.

 

  • The head is how we sustain life; the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe all enter the body via the head and face region.

 

  • It is through the head that we experience the world. All the world around us and our interaction with the world is experienced via one or more of the five senses and the head is the only area on the body where all five senses reside.

 

The Benefits

The physical strokes and sequences performed during Indian Head Massage induce a variety of physiological responses and benefits that include:

 

  • Relaxing the muscles in the head, face and neck

  • Stimulating cranial micro-circulation

  • Optimising the flow of nutrients into the brain

  • Stimulating lymphatic flow within the face and head

  • Skin regeneration

  • Switching us into parasympathetic overdrive (the body’s healing mode)

  • Pacifying Vata Dosha and thus Pitta and Kapha

  • Inducing collective homeostasis, thus optimising bodily regeneration, immune regulation, digestion and nutrient assimilation.

 

It is largely due to these many, varied and powerful benefits induced by Indian Head Massage that make it one of the cornerstone treatments in Ayurvedic medicine.
