Indian Ayurvedic Facial Treatments - a Bespoke Spa Treatment for Men and Women £35
What is an Ayurvedic Facial Treatment? This is a bespoke treatment designed to rebalance your skin and leave you with a feeling of overall wellbeing. Ayurveda means 'the science of life' and is based on ideas over 5,000 years old. If you enjoy yoga, then this is the perfect treatment for you as it is part of the same philosophy of health and balance.
The face is rich in energy channels or nadis and in marmas, the energy points which are used to bring balance to the person at all levels of mind, body and spirit. This balancing facial treatment works on the subtle energies or prana and uses natural oils with massage to help rejuvenate and tone the face.
As well as being a fully qualified therapist, I am a yoga teacher with a good understanding of the principles of Ayurveda and how it can help us maintain good health and increase wellbeing. I developed this treatment from my knowledge of skincare and Ayurvedic principles, and it is exclusive to me.
How does the Ayurvedic Facial Treatment help me?
The Ayurvedic facial and body marmas are energy points along the nadis, and touching the points will awaken your natural beauty and keep your skin vibrant and healthy. It also makes skin more receptive to nutrients. Facials are so relaxing and beneficial because the area is rich in sensory nerves, and they have important energetic benefits also.
A total of 37 marma points are located on the head, shoulders, face and upper chest area and so a massage of the face is a whole-person treatment in the same way as reflexology, for example.
What products do you use?
Your treatment begins with a consultation and we analyse your dosha, or energetic balance. Massage oils and other facial products are chosen to help balance the doshas - for example, if this is an anti-ageing treatment we are looking at pacifying Vata, which predominates as we grow older.
The same energetic principles work with both men and women, and you will have a choice of oils and blends to suit your needs and tastes.
Your treatment includes:

Eastern Facial Massage - £25.00
This is an exclusive massage covering the neck, face and scalp. It is a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating treatment for both men and women.
Eastern Facial Massage uses techniques drawn from both Indian and Japanese massage practices and when properly administered it is said to improve one’s beauty, balance ki, or life force to improve overall health and aid the condition of the skin.
The purpose of Eastern Facial Massage is to work specifically and precisely with the facial meridians and tsubo (acupuncture points) to achieve a balance in the entire facial skin, muscles and internal organs. An Eastern Facial Massage is a stand-alone half-hour therapy. It is said to gently stimulate the nervous system to increase blood and lymph circulation, reduce and prevent wrinkles, repair and balance the condition of the skin, minimize the ageing process, and leave your face looking healthy and feeling great.
The treatment can be carried out with no products at all, or with oils or a skin cream. If you are wearing makeup, then it will be gently removed before the massage.
