Facial Rejuvenation • A Pro-Aging Therapy
As you may already know, we are now offering Facial Rejuvenation treatments, a timeless ritual designed to rejuvenate the face and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentations, and skin imperfections that tend to surface as we age.
This service is often marketed as a “sacred anti-aging” remedy, and while this is not technically incorrect, we prefer to take a different perspective. We feel very strongly that life doesn’t work against nature, but rather tries to dance in harmony with it. In turn, we think of our Facial Rejuvenation treatments as “Pro-Aging” – because, like a fine wine, we should get better with age!
While the concept of Anti-Aging inherently sounds intriguing, coming from a position of “anti” places the mind in a place of resistance & opposition. This can create a cascade of stress and negative thoughts about ourselves and our bodies, which actually speeds up the aging process and hinders the sustainment of youthfulness - what you resist will persist! Instead, when we can come from a place of “pro” and support, we move out of resistance and into acceptance. From acceptance, we foster a state of openness and harmony, which ultimately helps us move through life with balance and grace. If we can embrace this perspective and implement healthy attitudes and practices, we ultimately gain more from the therapies we chose to support our youth.
This is precisely what our facial rejuvenation package is all about - helping the mind and body come into a balanced state to maintain our youthful vitality both mentally and physically.
What is our Facial Rejuvenation Package?
Our 90min facial rejuvenation package is divided into 3 portions:
1. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture
2. A brightening and rejuvenating mask
3. A nourishing facial massage.
Your session begins with the application of ultra-fine acupuncture needles into specific areas on the face that function to increase the abundance and flow of Qi and Blood in the face. Second, needles are placed along areas of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin imperfections to target and enhance the treatment effects in those areas. Third, a few acupuncture points are selected on the arms and legs to promote relaxation and support your body’s constitution. The needles are retained for about 25 minutes, giving you just enough time for a quick “acu-nap”.
After the needles are removed, a gentle cucumber water will be used to cleanse and hydrate the skin. Then, using a facial brush, we apply a mask comprised of egg white, mother of pearl powder, and a few selected oils and herbs specific to your constitution. The mask is left for 20min to penetrate the skin and harden before being gently removed with warm washcloth leaving your skin luminescent and silky.
...A little more about the 2 main ingredients:
Egg White – egg whites have amazing astringent properties that can help
tighten the skin
pull out excessive oil & blackheads
reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Mother of Pearl Powder – a sacred beauty ritual that has been known to be used by ancient Chinese royalty and Cleopatra!
promotes the regeneration of new skin cells
brightens the skin
reduces hyperpigmentation from blemishes, scarring, and sun damage
To finish the treatment and reintroduce ample moisture to the skin, coconut oil is massaged into the face, neck, and scalp. Coconut oil is a great moisturizer that adds gentle hydration but won’t clog up your pores. It also has antimicrobial and antifungal properties making sure you skin stays clean and hydrated throughout the day. This is a wonderful way to conclude your session to leave your skin bright and lustrous.
While several sessions of facial rejuvenation are required to see significant differences in the appearance of deeper imperfections, you will notice an immediate difference in the overall quality of your skin. It will feel silky, supple, and smooth - an effect that is long lasting - as well as visibly smaller pores, rosier cheeks, and a decrease in puffiness, spots, and impurities. More importantly, the benefits you’ll receive to promote overall balance and vitality will take hold immediately allowing you to dance in harmony with yourself and with nature.
