Facial yoga

Review by a long standing member

This treatment is so much more than a facial!  From the moment you enter the calming atmosphere of the Crystal Suite, with it’s subtle lighting and hot chairs to the moment you leave after your treatment and a relaxing few moments in the Crystal suite with your complementary herbal tea this treatment is a real experience.

My therapist carefully explained all the different stages of this 40 minutes treatment and asked if there were areas that I would like to be particularly targeted.   I was just happy with the thought of an all over ‘glow’!

The treatment started with a wonderful, relaxing back massage on the soothing warm bed.   A silky lotion was gently applied to cleanse the skin. I particularly liked the warm towels applied to the face, neck and décolleté after each stage.  The facial massage targeted every muscle in the face, lifting and toning, this was relaxing and soothing in spite of the firm, positive touch.  The massage is carefully targeted to stimulate blood flow to the skin, not just to the face, but also the neck and décolleté.  This was followed by a ‘one minute’ flash mask which she explained would stimulate collagen and tighten the skin, then an exfoliation which removed dead skin cells. The treatment is completed with an enriching moisturising cream which left my skin feeling smooth and plumped up.

Relaxing on the hot chair after the treatment with my herbal berry tea, I felt calm and my face felt as if it had had a real tonic.  I eagerly looked in the mirror in the changing room and was pleased to see that my skin looked smoother and I did have a nice glow!

I will definitely have this treatment again when I feel in need of a pick me up!
