Eastern Facial Massage is a special blend of complementary techniques drawn from Anma, the traditional system of massage in Japan and Ayurveda, the Indian healing method. It incorporates a deeply relaxing neck, scalp and facial massage, also working your facial meridians and acupressure points (tsubos) which can affect the balance of health in your whole body, as well as the specific flow of energy in your face. The sequence of techniques can not only act as a natural facelift but can also release stress and traumas locked into the muscles of the face and neck. The face can often act as a mask, hiding who we are and consuming much energy to maintain a front. Letting go of this front can result in profound relaxation, tranquillity and inner ease.

It has been said that Eastern Facial Massage can also help:

  • Calm and sooth your nervous system, relieving symptoms such as headache, insomnia and eye strain
