Ayurvedic Face and Neck Massage
This traditional Ayurvedic face-lift massage is a specific facial massage lasting one hour, that works the ‘Marma’ or energy points of the face, head and neck. It is a superb method for keeping the wrinkles away and leaving the skin with a smooth texture and a healthy glow.
According to Ayurveda (the traditional Medical system of India); there are 108 marma or energy points in the body, each relating to a specific organ and function of the body. Of these 37 are situated in the head and neck region, the location of our 5 senses – eyes, nose, tongue, ears and skin. These marma points are points of connection between the physical body and subtle energetic bodies. In health, energy should flow in an uninterrupted fashion through these marma points, although with stress and illness, energy tends to become blocked causing premature aging. Hence the emphasis of this massage is to free the points of blockages such that energy can flow in an uninterrupted fashion through them. This massage relaxes the sensory organs and relaxes the mind and soul.
