Harmony: a treatment for Mind, Body, Spirit & Beauty

I have created a radically new protocol that not only brings beauty to the face but simultaneously harmonises your mind, body and spirit. It is a treatment that is truly holistic, blending elements of facial reflexology, acupuncture, Reiki, acupressure, lymphatic drainage and cryo-therapy.

The result? A face that is alive, sculpted, and a complexion that glows - and a floaty feeling that lasts all day (or two, or three….or more). But that’s not all. Your resistance to stress is improved and so is your mood, sleep and digestion. Feeling calm and peaceful, strong and healthy, you are re-born.

What is involved in the treatment?

The session commences with a discussion about your general health and your areas of concern. I then assess you using an approach based on traditional Chinese medicine to determine the most appropriate treatment combination for you. There are four stages to this protocol and you will be lying comfortably on the couch throughout. You should allow a little over two hours for this session.

We begin with a combination of acupuncture and Reiki. Very fine acupuncture needles are inserted on the feet, lower legs, hands and ears. These are to de-toxify, de-stress, and to stimulate your body’s natural healing ability. The needles remain in place for 25 minutes and, during this time, I will apply the restorative and soothing energy of Reiki.

After removing the needles, I focus on the facial elements of the protocol, starting with rejuvenating facial massage. This involves a combination of kneading, stretching, tapping, pressing, and smoothing techniques. Depending on the type and condition of your skin, I use facial serums and oils by REN and The Ordinary (The Deciem), well known for their effectiveness, purity and ethical production.

The next stage is the lymphatic drainage procedure. I use silicone suction caps and a jade gua sha tool to remove any excess fluids, such as lymph, water and toxins. By greatly reducing puffiness, this sculpts and enhances the features of the face. I conclude the session with cryo-therapy, using an Angela Caglia Gold Cryo Facial Set – two ergonomically-crafted wands that are plated in gold. This technique harnesses extreme cold with the healing properties of gold to re-vitalise tired skin. It is a deeply invigorating experience which brings you back to reality!
