This facial’s treatment plan taps into different pathways of transformation, which build on strengthening beauty, confidence and self-empowerment. A soulful refuge is created when ritual and facial regimen interface, resulting in an intimate connection that starts with total and complete relaxation. What is happening for the client’s body, mind and spirit is a release of the past worries and concerns.
Anointing and massage. Anointing is a spiritual connection that dates back to biblical times. To continue the rich, holistic experience, blend the techniques of your facial routine with anointing techniques and massage. Be sure to customize the facial to best suit your client’s current skin care needs, keeping the holistic experience in mind. Add products such as luxurious creams, pure essential oils, organic ampoules and heavenly aromas as an intimate way to help lift clients to self-restoration.
Help the entire body relax by applying one drop of calming aromatherapy oil on each earlobe and beginning a gentle massage. Rosemary flower essence and a soothing scalp massage that includes acupressure points not only aids in quieting the mind, it is also fabulous for the hair.
