Natural Lift Facial Massage

Cost: £150

The Natural Facelift Massage is often referred to as “The Non-Surgical Face Lift” or “The Indian Facial ” Massage and works on a physiological and emotional level to help make the skin look better and the client feel “uplifted”. Most of the skin is made up of connective tissue, which is formed from fibres such as collagen and elastin. These fibres weave together to form a web like structure. In younger skins, these fibres slide past each other freely, giving suppleness and flexibility but over time the fibres begin to lock together so that the skin loses much of its mobility. The Facial Massage help to restore skin suppleness by toning collagen and elastin fibres, gently allowing the connective tissue to regain its freedom of movement and elasticity. Acupressure is used to stimulate the meridians and gentle massage techniques work on the muscles to help firm, lift and “plump up” the face.

The course is dedicated to hands-on practice ensuring students are able to carry out a treatment confidently. Comprehensive manual covers theory, setting up in business and after the course, ongoing support is provided.

A totally unique therapy to offer your clients!
