This treatment will include both Facial Acupuncture as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture.
Facial acupuncture involves using acupuncture to improve the skin and fight the ageing process. It works by stimulating the muscles of the face, using fine intradermal needles to increase tightness. As the needles puncture the skin, they create wounds, called positive microtraumas, within its threshold. When the body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. This will stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing the skin from the inside out. It will also aid the production of natural collagen and thereby improve the overall quality of the skin.
Organic, plant-based creams have been selected and ancient Chinese stones are used on the face for microcirculation of the blood and lymphatic drainage.
During the treatment the therapist will also use the Celluma LED light system. This system has been scientifically proven to accelerate cell renewal, stimulate collagen production and increase the skin’s elastin.
This is a bespoke treatment combining both modern and ancient techniques to create the ultimate natural facial rejuvenation.
Just like the rest of our body, the face has many muscles that can get tight and hold onto stress. The
emphasis of our holistic facial is to provide a blissful experience that will leave your muscles feeling
relaxed and rejuvenated, and your skin looking and feeling fabulous.
As part of our holistic approach, we use ear seeds at the beginning of the treatment to encourage
cellular rejuvenation and promote feelings of wellbeing.
In addition to cleanse, tone and exfoliation, our facialist uses a combination of gua sha, acupressure
and massage techniques to boost circulation, improve skin tone and ease tension.
All products used are from the Pretty Special Beauty organic skincare range.
