NYR Organic Facial
Heavenly Facial using award-winning organic skincare products
Holistic facials are a gentle and relaxing facial treatment which cleanses, exfoliate, tone and nourishes the skin. The therapy can also help to relax muscles of the face, head, hands/feet, neck and shoulders, common areas for holding stress and tension. Here at Waterlily Therapies, I use Neals' Yard Organic products that nourish the skin and delight the senses.
How do Holistic Facials work?
A cleanser and face mask can help to remove impurities from the skin, while a gentle exfoliator and face massage promotes the removal of dead skin cells. Massage of the face, head, neck, shoulders, arms and hands can help to release stress and tension of muscles in these areas. Massage also promotes fresh blood supply bringing with it oxygen and nutrients. This encourages the body to rid itself of waste products associated with muscle discomfort and can help to improve skin condition.
Many people comment that they experience a sense of deep relaxation and well-being during and following treatments. Other benefits may include:
Improvement of facial skin condition
Lightens skin tone
Pure, natural and free from harmful chemicals
Provides lasting benefits and skin radiance
Helps to decrease the damage caused by free radicals
Eradicates impurities, leaving your skin glowing
Unblocks pores and reduces the appearance of acne
or relief from:
Muscular (e.g. neck) tension and pain caused by occupational stress (long periods marking, completing paperwork, sitting at a computer)
Tension headaches and facial pain
Stress, anxiety and feelings of depression
During an initial consultation, the therapist will take some personal details such as diet, lifestyle, current skincare routine, any issues and general health. You will then be asked to lie on a comfortable massage couch. You will remain fully clothed other than removing your upper clothing (not underwear) and covered with a blanket. This will enable the therapist to massage your décolletage, neck and shoulders.
The therapist will remove any makeup, and massage an organic cleansing and exfoliating lotion into your face and neck which will then be removed using a hot muslin cloth to steam open the pores.
A facial oil will be selected to suit your skin needs providing a face and head massage. The treatment also includes a massage of the shoulders, neck and décolletage. Pressure points on the face and head are gently stimulated to relieve tension.
Following this, an organic face mask to suit your skin type and preferences is freshly prepared and applied to your skin, while you receive a soothing hand and arm massage. The mask will then be carefully removed and the skin cleansed, toned and moisturised using beautiful organic products.
If clients would prefer not to have oil applied to the hair, this can remain covered by a towel or head massage omitted.
