Why facials can be more relaxing than a massage
Facials are also about creating ‘inner peace’ which reflects a serene appearance on your face immediately after a facial. Beauty is skin deep and it shows in a person’s skin how you feel within yourself, especially when you are stressed.
Decades ago, facials were all about extractions, steaming and purging skin, leaving skin looking blotchy and bruised after a facial. Facial products, training and techniques used today have changed compared to what was used years ago and now are all about desensitising, calming, hydrating, balancing and nourishing your skin.
While the skincare products used today are all about achieving results to attain beautiful skin, relaxation and knowledge of a professional Therapist play a great part.The magic that skin Therapists work with their soothing hands while using advanced skincare products and specialised aroma oils to deliver effective anti-ageing treatments are all combined in one facial at ikatan Spa to offer immediate stress relief. Skin Therapists can feel you slipping into deep relaxation, while your breathing slows and you drift to inner peace, releasing facial muscle tension as well as your mind and stress.
Sounds good, I need that, so how does it work?
During a facial Therapists use a lighter, softer touch in repetitive rhythmical patterns over the peripheral nerve endings on and around the face and scalp. The peripheral nerves are important structures in the body that carry information from the brain and spinal cord out to the muscles to initiate movements and then to also carry sensory information back from the extremities and other tissues to the spinal cord. This brain and sensory touch exchange from soft repetitive movements simply sends a message of calm to your mind and it shows in your face.
You know how people have a different look about them when they are in love, pregnant or just back from a holiday? When those relaxed, happy vibes are just too good to hide. Well, facials can give you that look too.
Any time is a great time to have facials or skin treatments but cooler months are particularly good due to less chance of sun exposure and it’s snugly to be cosy and warm on a soft treatment bed relaxing while you enjoy a rejuvenating treatment that leaves you looking and feeling as if you have no trouble in your life.
We use and recommend Environ cosmeceutical 100% vitamin skincare for anti-ageing and for those who love organic products we also offer Uspa Australian Botanical skincare for all facial treatments at ikatan Spa.
