What are holistic facials and how can they improve your wellbeing?
We live in a society that so often triggers feelings of anxiety, depression and low self-worth. Our faces tend to reveal what is happening inside the body – so when we’re stressed, these emotions reveal themselves in skin sensitivity, breakouts, dryness and dehydration, to name a few.
Increasingly, people are turning to natural remedies to alleviate and soothe these feelings.
So what about facial therapies? Is there healing power in facial massage? A study published in the Journal of Biomedical Research suggests that facial massage reduces anxiety and negative emotions and increases an overall sense of calmness.
As well as psychological well being and emotional relaxation, facial massage also helps to relieve tension, increase circulation and act as a natural ‘facelift’ for a period of time. By stimulating pressure points on the face and scalp, circulation is increased, bringing oxygen to the skin, leading to increased collagen production and a healthy, radiant, plump glow to the face.
In a nutshell, facial massage helps to promote a sense of well being and the peace it brings can deliver healing that often outweighs surface-level benefits.
