Ayurvedic Indian Facial Treatments (Beauty Guild accredited for existing therapists, insurable for all)
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.
This is a course for therapists who are interested in offering holistic and holistic beauty treatments, either as part of a holistic therapy practice or in their beauty salon.
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. You benefit from my skills as both a therapist and yoga specialist and will learn to develop facial treatments which your clients will enjoy and come back for time and again.
Learning about the marmas of the face means that you can offer a facial treatment with whole-person benefits using your choice of natural products and gentle massage. When we work on the face we need to first clean off makeup and the grime of the day before using a suitable oil or cream to give the massage. If you are a beauty therapist, you can use Ayurvedic Facial Massage as part of your facials - be creative with your skills, and offer unique experiences for your clients.
This treatment is suitable for both men and women. Products are chosen to help all types of skin, from dry and ageing to rosacea and acne.
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. For experienced therapists, marma treatment is often intuitive but students need a routine to learn and practice so that they build confidence. Later on in your work with marma therapy, you will develop intuition and deliver unique treatments for each client.
Oils are chosen to meet the client’s doshas and so if this is an anti-ageing treatment we are looking at pacifying Vata. Where the client has spots, blackheads, and oily skin then kapha is the dominant dosha and needs to be balanced but red, troubled skin (e.g. rosacea) would indicate the need to pacify Pitta.
The course includes
Full facial treatment routine - cleanse, tone, mask, massage, moisturise
Routine for working on the facial marmas
Facial massage routine
Theory of Ayurveda
Using crystals and gemstones in the treatment
The use of oils in Ayurveda
Making facial masks
