Some of you have expressed that until chatting to
me, you hadn't considered having a facial, as you felt they were too
'pampery' and you were always in need of a massage and you felt they
were an indulgence rather than something you needed. What i want to do
is inform you better so you can see why having a facial in general is
great for you and your skin and tension as well as why it is worth
having a facial from Drift Away.
Why have a facial?
aren't just about pampering you and making you feel special. The clay
masks used in the treatment provide nourishment to the skin which leaves
your skin looking and feeling great.
Facials help with circulation
which in turns helps with those wrinkles, not to mention helping to
break down tension held in the face, jaw and temples. So much tension
is held in the jaw and head that can cause neck tension too, facials can
help to alleviate this tension.
Facials also help with
sinus drainage, great for any of you who are sinus sufferers, especially
as some of the key sinus areas are where we also hold tension and once
again, through the facial massage, attention is placed on these areas to
reduce the stress held in the muscles and to relieve the sinuses. Both
through massaging the face and scalp, this can help alleviate that
tension in the head and scalp which can be a big contributor of
So as you can see, although a facial can be a
pampering treatment, a bit of tlc for the facial skin and to 'make you
look good', there are also other physical remedial benefits with the
reduction of tension in the head, scalp, neck and face. So a facial is
more than an indulgence.
What makes Drift Away's facials any different?
discussed this with some of you, one of the things that came up was the
fact that when a mask is setting, your left alone for up to fifteen
minutes when you felt that this time could be used better. At Drift
Away i have listened to this and so once i have applied all the
beautiful Elemis range to your skin and applied the face mask which is
tailor made to your skin, i will be using my massage skills to provide
you with a lovely massage treatment whilst the mask is setting.
can choose between a massage to the shoulders, neck and scalp to help
relieve key tension in these areas and aid relaxation, or a soothing
hand or foot massage to get rid of any aches and pains in these areas.
The combined shoulder/neck/scalp massage aims to break down the knots
and ease the tension held in the scalp and neck, so you not only feel
pampered but that your having a holistic and soothing massage that
increase mobility and flexibility in the muscles. A facial at Drift
Away goes above and beyond pampering and tailors the treatment so that
you are getting a whole approach from the products used to improve the
skin, to getting rid of aches and pains in muscles and to reduce tension
in the scalp.
The facial massage by Drift Away focuses
upon improving circulation to the skin to help it look great and to help
reduce wrinkles and give a radiant look, but also to work on tension
held in the jaw which so many of us have! Also to work on sinus drainage
to help with sinus problems and to relieve puffiness around the eyes.
It aims to work on reducing tension held in the face, around the temples
and in the scalp which can help to reduce headaches, due to the
knowledge gained from previous massage courses.
So all in all, a facial from Drift Away is a very unique experience;-)
