These two approaches to facial massage originate in the Far East and offer complementary anti-ageing benefits to the face. Approaches to skincare in these ancient cultures differ from Europe and are one of my main areas of study.

This 60-minute session costs £75 for either of these techniques:

Japanese facelift

This is a natural facelift with elements of facial reflexology and acupressure.

  • Medium massage pressure
  • Benefits are instant and visible as well as long-term and cumulative
    • Firm and toned facial muscles
    • Energised and brighter complexion
    • Alleviates stress, emotional and hormonal issues

Japanese Lifting is a neuro-sensorial procedure based on traditional Japanese rituals. The treatment entails lifting the facial tissue, stimulating acupuncture points, meridians and facial nerves as well as balancing emotional and hormonal issues.

Japanese facelift in detail

The opening of Japanese Facelift is a stimulation of thirty-five facial acupressure points located on meridians – energy channels – that are specific to our internal organs. Shiatsu, a traditional Japanese massage technique, has worked with these points for centuries. Facial reflexology follows to diagnose and treat imbalances in the facial zones. The zone specific to lungs – that represents feelings of loss and sadness – is currently being treated.

Advanced lifting based on traditional Japanese techniques sculpts the facial tissue to deliver lifted appearance. The lifting is ritual-based and repetitive and alternates with lymphatic drainage of the face.

Chinese facelift booster introduction

This massage technique uses deep pressure in the areas that define our facial structure – the jaw, cheekbones and orbital ridge – and vibration working on relief of tension in sinuses and under eye puffiness.

  • Radical rejuvenation with deep pressure massage
  • Immediate lifting effect
  • Reduces double chin, sagging jawline and eyelids
  • Realigns energy flow and releases neck spasms

Testimonials from my clients

“…I enjoyed the facelift very much. I think my skin looks brighter more than anything else at the moment and it feels a bit more hydrated over the cheek areas.”

HW, after one session of Japanese Facelift, Jan 2011

Testimonials continued

“Recently I changed from my usual facial massage to try the Japanese facelift and I’m so glad that I did! As well as making my skin glow afterwards the effects on my state of mind were amazing. I felt invigorated and energised, feelings that continued well after the treatment. Had I known just how wonderful the facial reflexology would be, I would have been opting for this massage much sooner than this!”

KT, after one session of Japanese Facelift, Nov 2010

“…My skin felt great and my friend commented on my ‘youthful and fresh faced complexion’ – nobody’s ever said that before! I still think that I can see a difference now…”

Testimonials from my clients

“I enjoyed the deep tissue massage over the third eye zone. Great for clients that want to feel the gain and treatment working straight away.”

LW, after a Chinese Booster taster, Sep 2010

I was wondering beforehand whether I would find it painful and not relaxing. You can certainly feel it and for me the knuckles on my forehead made me wince but nothing you could not cope with. I did switch off from other things so in that way relaxing but not in the dreamy sleepy experience as in the European facials.
What I was amazed with was how energetic it made me feel on way back I was very alert and clear headed and that lasted all evening. So a very different effect to the anti-ageing facial where I struggle to stay awake to drive home.”
