Facelift massage, also known as facial rejuvenation massage, uses pressure point stimulation, Ayurvedic massage techniques and lymph drainage to tone the skin and increase elasticity. I’m always keen to try new treatments, especially ones that tout deep relaxation as a side effect!
I met massage therapist Yoko Ohara of Oriental Holistic at Stillpoint Center near Liverpool Street, in a cozy treatment room. She warned me beforehand that the treatment might be a little painful and had been described by a colleague as ‘hardcore’.
Yoko started by massaging my shoulders and back, with some exquisite neck and spine stretches, before beginning work on my face. A series of sweeping movements culminated in a delicate pinching technique, working from my jaw to my temples. She used a divine rosehip oil throughout the massage which left my skin super soft.
I can honestly say I have never felt so relaxed after a massage. I left feeling like I was floating on a cloud and had a brilliant sleep. I would urge anyone interested in facial massage to try it, as it would benefit skin of any age. If you’re after a bit of zen and a glowing complexion, try Facelift Massage. I highly recommend Yoko and Oriental Holistic. She also practices shiatsu and acupuncture.
