Holistic Facials and Facial Cupping are a wonderful way of improving your skin’s overall health and appearance. A deeply relaxing experience, an Alami Facial is a chance to nourish your mind, body and soul as well as your skin.
Holistic facials work wonders on many levels. Here at Alami we will look at all the aspects that affect your skin, including your lifestyle, skincare routine, stress levels and diet. These all have an impact on our skin and I am here to help you make the right adjustments, and answer any questions you might have. The physical benefits of regular facials mean your skin will feel beautifully cleansed, hydrated and moisturised afterwards. They can help solve skin issues such as acne, rosacea and eczema, and can help to reduce redness, inflammation and calm irritated skin.
Facial massage is really helpful for ageing skin. Here at Alami we do not like using the word anti-ageing, but much prefer to use a more positive and embracing term – we are ‘pro ageing’. Facial massage and facial cupping help us to age naturally and beautifully by boosting blood circulation and stimulating skin cells which encourages cellular regeneration. By stimulating these cells, collagen production is encouraged, which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving our skin’s texture and tone.
Lymphatic drainage is also an integral part of the Alami facial. This really helps to encourage blood flow, flush out toxins and reduce puffiness. Using facial cups is also a powerful tool to aid lymphatic drainage and is incorporated into the Alami Holistic Facial as well as stand alone facial cupping sessions. Facial cupping is also beneficial for sculpting and plumping your skin. It really brightens your complexion and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
Only natural and organic skincare products are used during the Alami Facials. Not only will the award winning Alami Skincare range be used, but also other incredible award winning indie brands with high ethical and high performance products including ww.ornkuskincare.com and d’still.co.uk. Every facial is tailored to suit your skin’s specific needs. Face masks are freshly made according to your skin type, not only this you also get to take an Alami Skincare face mask home with you.
Not only will your skin be looked after but your mind, body and soul will also feel nurtured. Many clients describe leaving feeling happy, floaty and deeply relaxed. The treatments are a wonderful opportunity for self care and self love. Making time for yourself helps to reduce stress levels, which in turn helps our overall health. We all need time for ourselves, it helps us function better and feel happier when our cup is full, as we are more able to give to others when we feel replenished ourselves. A holistic facial allows you to fall into a deep state of relaxation which helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. Once activated, your nervous system starts to calm down and de-stress which allows your body to heal itself bringing what we all so very much need – homeostasis.
