Anti-Ageing Facial Massage In Detail
Effleurage originates from the French “to skim” and “to touch lightly ” and prepares face for a massage in slow rhytm and with gentle pressure. Small circular movements follow, upwards and outwards, to increase blood flow and radiance and smooth out uneven skin surface.
Gentle pinching and light tapping, outwards and upwards, introduces rhythmic compression of the tissue and stimulates nerves endings as well as contracts capillaries. It is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin types – light superficial tapping induces cooling effect.
Fan-like movement on the jawline is a rhytmic variation on the “petrissage technique”. Originating from the French word “to knead”, it requires lifting and rolling tissue vertically and works on the dermal layer of the skin.
Testimonials from my clients
“I have visited Katerina for treatments for two years, in order to try to work on specific problem areas of my face and improve the overall appearance of my skin. She is not tied to one brand and therefore can recommend suitable products based on price and performance, rather than sticking to just one brand’s range of products.
Katerina has been trained in various types of massage and can select suitable techniques depending on the treatment required. Also she can provide targeted treatment dependent on the specific facial zone to be targeted. Visiting Katerina on a regular basis also encouraged my commitment to a routine of daily skin care and regular massage treatments which over time provides benefits. Finally, Katerina has a deep knowledge of the science of skin care products and the skin itself, which very few practicing therapists actually have and I think she provides a unique service because of that.”
