Facial Rejuvenation Massage
Massage is a therapy in its own right and the use of essential oils (aromatherapy) enhances the effect of this beneficial therapy.  Its aims are to increase the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids in order to increase the release of toxins, to increase or decrease the energy flow of the meridian lines (as in shiatsu), to break down tension in overworked, tired or aching muscles and to tone under worked or weak muscles.

The aromatherapy prescription facial incorporates the use of essential oils, enhanced by a small amount of shiatsu, lymph drainage and neuro muscular massage. Shiatsu massage works on the principle of energy flow.  A few shiatsu movements are selected which work on certain pressure points on the face and head.  Lymph drainage massage is carried out on the superficial tissues.  Movements like these are carried out in aromatherapy to help improve the lymph flow and accelerate the release of toxins. Neuro muscular massage involves movements following the nerve pathways to improve both the nerve and the blood circulation.
