Facelift Massage is an incredibly restorative treatment inside and out. It has all the health benefits of reflexology, plus it is very calming and more intimate than working on the feet. Clients often remark on how deeply and almost hypnotically they drift away. It stimulates collagen and elastin and de-programmes the facial muscles, naturally lifting the facial structure. Part of this combined treatment is Japanese facelift massage techniques as well using crystals balls.

I am really excited about being part of a kinder approach to beauty and Ziggie Bergman who I trained with is recommended in articles this year in Harpers Bazaar ‘Heart of Beauty’. Moving clients away from the Botox frozen approach to anti-aging is something Ziggie Bergman is passionate about, and has passed that passion on to me.

ADVANCED FACELIFT MASSAGE can show results after the very first treatment. Clients will often remark they feel that buzz all over their face. The same buzz as after an amazing workout, as well as a radiant glowing complexion. As you work deeply on facial tissue, the clients blood flow is increased, nutrients are encouraged and the nerve supply stimulated, which then results in the skin looking more contoured, fresher and (over a series of treatments) tighter looking.

Regular Facial Massage helps to reform facial tissue and re-programme habitual repetitive actions such as frown lines, offering a far less invasive option than Botox and a much cheaper one too.

Some facial wrinkles could be seen as emotional scars as they are caused by a pattern of muscular movements over many years which can reflect on one's state of mind. It is not surpising that removing the effect of these emotional scars has more of a positive result than just the beauty effects of the treatment.

Facial Massage encourages lymph drainage and also helps to detoxify. Advanced Facelift Massage improves blood flow, oxygenates tissue and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin from the inside out. It can help to eliminate pigmentation spots and acne and reduce puffiness.

This treatment can slow down the aging process and achieve younger-looking and healthier skin


  • Helps to relax over-tight muscles in the face, neck and shoulders
  • Tightens and tones the skin in the face and neck
  • Improves blood flow into muscle tissue, bring extra oxygen and nutrients and aids the removal of waste product through the venous return. This helps muscles function to their full potential, keeping them toned and maintaining their elasticity.
  • The increased production of heat created by vasodilation produces a warming effect and the skins surface temperature is raised. The increase in production of sudoriferous glands helps to remove waste and urea from the body more efficiently.
  • Facelift Massage stimulates sebaceous glands which produce more sebum, which helps soften the skin and also works as an anti-bacterial film, which can improve conditions such as acne.
  • Frictions aid with desquamation of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smoother and softer
  • Reduces puffiness and breaks down localized fatty deposits
  • Loosens scar tissue
  • The autonomic nervous system, parasympathetic division is stimulated by facial massage and peripheral nerve endings can be either soothed or stimulated depending on the massage movements being used. The results can be both deeply relaxing or invigorating and tissues and organs in the body can be stimulated.
  • Before re-entering the blood stream, lymph passed through lymph nodes where many toxins are eliminated by the actions of white blood cells. Manually lightly using effleurage movements to encourage lymph to flow to these nodes towards and behind the ears and petrissage movements on the clusters of lymph nodes helps them to work a their best, and kick start sluggish ones.
  • Superficial and deep layers of skin are stimulated, increasing cellular function and regeneration of body cells
  • Enhances skin condition. Regular treatment may help to preserve youthful skin and soften wrinkles or fine lines.
  • Encourages calmness and deep relaxation...both body and mind resulting in reduced stress
  • Reduces sinus congestion by releasing air and mucous membrane in the sinus cavities in the facial and cranial bones. Bacteria, airborne allergens such as pollen can get trapped. The massage techniques help to drain these areas.
