Since returning from my trip to New York last month, I have been practicing, perfecting and creating a new facial treatment, which after seeing some really amazing results in clients that I have been practicing it on, I am really excited to be officially offering this.
Over the past couple of years, I have had a lot of clients asking about “anti-aging” treatments, such as Botox, Fillers and Micro-Needling. If you read my last blog post on Graceful Aging 101, you will quickly learn how I feel about from a physiological standpoint.
While aging is an honour that many sadly do not get to experience, I will be the first to admit that seeing your face aging in the mirror does not always feel like an honour. And experiencing this myself, while living a fully holistic lifestyle, I knew I had to find an alternative to these trendy invasive treatments.
How well you age is determined by what is going on inside of your body – your liver health, lymphatic system, nervous system, circulatory system, muscular system, collagen and elastin production – your entire body’s health will determine how gracefully you age, which I explain a lot more about in the above mentioned blog post.
The problem here, is that most of trendy “anti-aging” treatments out there right now actually work against all of the body’s systems that help determine how well you age. However, if we can work to bring balance to those systems, graceful aging can occur.
Thanks to my 4 new certifications that I have been working really hard towards this year, I am really proud to say that I have created a treatment, The Holistic FaceLift, that will be an excellent alternative to Botox and the other invasive treatments mentioned above.
The Holistic FaceLift
The Holistic FaceLift Facial is my holistic alternative to Botox and I have designed this treatment to lift and sculpt your face and neck. It is a combination of Manual Lymph Drainage Massage, Nefeli Gua Sha Massage and Connective Tissue Massage, and so far, I have not had a single client stay awake for this treatment – it’s that relaxing 🙂
The Holistic FaceLift Facial treatment consists of minimal products and is entirely performed using only my hands and a gua sha jade stone.
- lifts the face and neck
- stimulates collagen and elastin production
- relieves tension in the face and scalp
- relieves jaw tension and TMJ (for those who clench their jaw and/or grind their teeth)
- improves movement in the skin
- encourages lymph fluid to flow and increasing nutrient flow, circulation and hydration
- clears the stagnation that causes puffiness, water retention and dark spots in the skin
- brightens the complexion
- balances the nervous system, putting you into a deep, meditative and relaxed state
One session will produce noticeable results, however, for best results, this facial is also offered in a series of 6 treatments, each booked one week apart.
The before and after results in this photo were achieved after only one treatment. When we started the facial, it was bright outside, but when we finished, it was overcast, so although the lighting is a bit different between the two photos, you can see how the treatment completely removed the tension from her face (most women hold a great deal of tension in our faces, making our faces appear older), and dramatically improved her neck. This client has booked herself in for a series of 6-8 treatments, so we are both really excited to see the results after her series.
