A holistic facial is a therapeutic and relaxing treatment that is designed to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin, while also promoting relaxation and stress relief.
Unlike traditional facials, which focus solely on the skin, a holistic facial takes a whole-body approach to skincare, incorporating techniques such as facial massage, acupressure, aromatherapy, and lymphatic drainage. This comprehensive approach aims to balance the body and mind, improving overall well-being and leaving you feeling renewed and refreshed.
The treatment begins with a sequence of traditional cleansing, steaming, and exfoliation methods, performed to purify and revitalize your complexion. I will then apply different massage techniques to your face, chest, shoulders, neck, and scalp, skilfully targeting areas of tension to promote deep relaxation and release muscle tightness.
Following this revitalizing massage, mask will be applied, infusing your skin with nourishing ingredients and promoting a radiant glow. While the mask works its magic, you will be pampered with a blissful hand and arm massage, further enhancing your state of relaxation and well-being.
To finish the treatment, application of toner and moisturizer will be delicately administered, enveloping your skin in a protective veil of hydration and leaving it feeling replenished, supple, and revitalized.
Holistic facials are a wonderful addition to your self-care and wellness ritual. Among the many benefits, a holistic facial helps to:
