Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage

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

The Ayurvedic face lift Massage is revered as a natural treatment used to prevent and reverse the physical signs of ageing. It is based on the therapeutic principles of Ayurveda, that 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 the balance on all levels of being that imbues beauty.

The primary objective of Ayurveda is to:-

1. To promote health and a long life

2. To cure disease and dysfunction, on the mental and physical levels of being.

The Treatment

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.

A sequence of specific techniques and strokes, marma points and medicated oil, are used to target areas that show signs of ageing, such as frown lines around the forehead and crow's feet around the eyes.

 

Collagen and elastin found in the dermis of the skin, decrease in production and tone over time. The massage revitalises the skin by increasing blood and lymph flow,  stimulating the production of collagen and helps keep the skin elastic.

Preparing for the treatment

Some of the oil will cover the hair at the top of the head as marmar points are stimulated. You may wish to have a scarf with you and a hat to keep your head warm after the session.

A single session is a wonderful experience, however you can also book on the 4 or 6 week Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage Anti-ageing programme.

Feeling good on the inside is just as important as looking good on the outside. This is a unique programme that takes a broader, holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. More than just a massage, it is a nourishing and nurturing programme that encourages you to take positive steps in feeling good about yourself.

 

Alongside the weekly Face Lift Massage, you will be given a plan full of  Ayurvedic knowledge and tools that are easy to incorporate into daily life.

The 4 week programme is a great introduction to the healing approach of Ayurveda. It will give you the support to start to focus on areas of your health you'd like to improve. 

 

The programme is crafted to your specific needs, in that you decide on what you wish to implement in your own Ayurveda plan.   You will be given tools to put into practice at home between the sessions, to enhance the benefits of the massage.

The 6 week programme will give you the opportunity to dive a little deeper and as in the 4 week programme, it is crafted to your specific needs. It gives you more time to implement the recommended Ayurveda plan, so you can experience the benefits over a longer period of time.

The 4 Week Programme

  • This includes a 60-minute Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage a week for 4 consecutive weeks. This consistency allows for exponential gains in variables such as skin tone, complexion and facial muscle tone.

  • You will receive an Ayurveda Health & Life Style consultation to fill out before the first treatment. You can highlight one or 2 areas you wish to focus on at home, in between the massage treatments. Some people choose to focus on dealing with insomnia and using Ayurveda to improve the quality of sleep, others choose to focus on good eating habits, releasing stress, or hormonal balance. 

  • Once you have chosen what you would like to address, a tailored Ayurvedic plan will be suggested for you to follow over the course of the 4 weeks.

  • The approach may include implementation of subtle dietary, lifestyle and herbal remedies for the duration of the 4-week period, to work synergistically with the Face Lift Massage treatments.  They have been found to result in significantly more noticeable gains in the facial rejuvenation and the reversal of the primary signs of facial ageing.

The 6 Week Programme

  • This includes a 60-minute Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage a week for 6 consecutive weeks. This consistency allows for exponential gains in variables such as skin tone, complexion and facial muscle tone.

  • You will receive an Ayurveda Health & Life Style consultation to fill out before the first treatment.

  • In the 6 week programme, a tailored Ayurvedic plan will be suggested based on your needs. A guideline will be given to you to follow over the course of the 6 weeks, that is based on the pillars of health outlined below.

 

 

Dietary Modifications

Research shows that compliance to diet plans is very poor due to the restrictive nature. The Ayurvdic approach emphasizes the foods that are most beneficial to health and that is suitable for your Dosha. 

Herbs and Supplements

Many herbs and supplements have powerful and evidence-based impacts upon reducing the signs of ageing in the skin whilst helping to actually regenerate the skin to optimise facial skin and muscle tone and general complexion. You will be given suggestions according to your constitution.

Topical Treatments

Self-care is encouraged in the form of self-massage, with recommended oils for your complexion. There are many oils with antioxidants that fight free radicals, promote cell growth of the skin, reduce wrinkle formation and improve skin complexion. Establishing a good skin care practice during the course, will help you to continue when the course is finished.

Lifestyle Modifications

Within Ayurveda there is a form of lifestyle medicine called Dinachara. This is arguably the most powerful and health promoting tool within the Ayurvedic framework and focuses on the importance of our daily routine (specifically the time we get up, the time we eat and the time we go to bed) and the addition of several key lifestyle behaviors (such as meditation, self-massage and yoga) into our daily routine.

You will be given a guide to the core approaches so you can see which to implement during the  programme (and ideally longer!).

Doing so can have a profound impact upon levels of health, wellbeing and vitality, traits that will undoubtably present visually in the skin. For example, we know that higher levels of circulating stress hormones result in premature ageing of the skin.

 

Incorporating habits that reduce the stress hormone cortisol, will have a powerful and positive impact upon the skin, general health, vitality and wellbeing. This is important, as when the 6-week Ayurvedic Face Lift Anti-Ageing programme ends, you will have some effective tools to continue using to maintain your wellbeing.

Head Massage

Indian 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 spheres. The 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.

  • depression

  • low mood

  • restlessness

  • poor concentration

  • Ayurvedic medicated oils are chosen and heated to be delivered warm or hot

        according to your doshic make-up.​​

  •  After the massage is complete there is a facial steam applied with hot flannels.

        The Cost of a single treatment is £70.00

Preparing for the treatment

The Ayurvedic oils are massaged onto the hair and head and as the oil becomes absorbed, more oil is applied. It is a good idea to bring a scarf with you to cover your hair and in winter to wear a hat to keep your head warm afterwards.

 

It is beneficial to keep the oils on over-night as the oils are nourishing for the hair however, they can be washed off afterwards if needs be.
